As one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of construction systems and particularly flooring products, Tremco is routinely involved with projects to create all types of structure from hospitals and hotels to schools and sports venues. Indeed its smoothing compounds such as SX500 and SX300 NA often prove critical to the way surfaces perform in terms of how finishes go down and their longevity; as well as trueness and even safety.
Speed is often crucial and one of the latest additions to Tremco’s comprehensive and fully-compatible range of flooring products is SX500 Rapid Drying Smoothing Compound, which offers strong environmental credentials as well as fast-track working characteristics. The two-component smoothing compound – often specified in combination with ES600 Moisture Vapour Suppressant - can usually be walked on after just 30 minutes and floor coverings can be laid after approximately 90 minutes.
Where substrates are very uneven, however, Tremco would recommend SX300 NA as it can be applied beneath the moisture vapour suppressant. Offering low odour and protein free, SX300 NA has been specifically developed to be moisture resistant. It can be trowelled from a thickness of 6 mm down to 2mm, or mixed with an equal volume of granite chippings to fill a depth of 30 mm.
Where, therefore, consultants or contractors are facing challenging conditions and targeting quick installation times as well as a high performance, lasting legacy, they need look no further than SX500 or SX300 NA and the team of well proven flooring products they are a part of.
Flowcrete and Tremco's quality systems and product range played a pivotal role in the refurbishment of Sunderland Train Station. The project formed part of the £26million investment of the station and regeneration of the city to improve transport links for residents and visitors.
Tremco, a brand of Tremco CPG UK, won in the Healthcare - Care Homes Category alongside Beveridge Flooring Ltd and Danfloor UK at the CFJ Awards 2023.
Highly versatile and offering a number of user-friendly, high performance benefits, Tremco’s SX600NA has been developed for refurbishment work as well as fast-track projects where speed is of the essence.
