TREMCO’s ES600 and SX500 have recently been used on the refurbishment of a private house. The fast track system was used by Ayrshire Flooring as they could DPM, screed and apply the floor covering all in one day.

ES600 & SX500
When selecting a system, speed of installation was of paramount importance. ES600 is a water based moisture vapour suppressant that can be used where moisture readings are up to 95% RH. With a typical drying time of just 60 minutes and no need to prime when used with TREMCO smoothing compounds, it can assist with a rapid installation.
Ayrshire Flooring used ES600 with SX500, a rapid drying smoothing compound. The smoothing compound has a walk on time of 30 minutes and a lay on time of just 90 minutes. When used in combination with ES600, floor coverings can be applied after approximately 3 hours.
The floor (including floor covering) was laid in a 6 hour time slot and the area was returned to use so as not to cause inconvenience to the home owner.
Subfloor preparation is essential for the success of any flooring project and must be one of the first considerations as it helps to extend the life of the finished floorcovering.
Whether you are working on a new build or refurbishment construction project, as a contractor, you know first-hand the importance of having a well-prepared base in order to achieve a flawless finish.
