Bostik Inc. has introduced SL-Rapid to the marketplace. A cement-based, self-leveling underlayment, SL-Rapid creates a smooth and level surface prior to the installation of floor coverings. Its low shrinkage and leveling properties make it an ideal product for time-sensitive and demanding applications on, above, or below grade.
Harder surface flooring finishes such as ceramic tile and natural stone can be installed over it as quickly as one hour after SL-Rapid becomes walkable. Moisture-sensitive floor coverings such as wood, carpet, VCT, vinyl sheet goods and rubber can generally be installed in four hours after the underlayment is walkable.
