Flowcrete will be heading to Futurebuild to showcase the transformation of its Mondeco seamless terrazzo flooring.
The Flowcrete technical team has developed a high-performance formulation to give architects and specifiers long-lasting beauty underfoot.
Used the world over for floors that combine quality, beauty and performance, the new collection incorporates elements of the most specified designs in Flowcrete Mondeco’s 40 year history.
As part of CPG Europe, the Flowcrete UK team will be welcoming visitors to their stand number E42 at Futurebuild to explain more about the new formulation, which offers superior UV stability, the option of larger aggregates for extra visual impact, and a choice of 12mm and 9mm options, as well as a more economical 6-7mm version.
With a focus on exclusivity and easy specification, the new Mondeco range is centred around eight collections, which together offer 32 design options, using a variety of aggregates encapsulated in a choice of four RAL coloured resins.
In-keeping with the classic origins of terrazzo, the eight collections are inspired by Italian names that reflect the unique individual qualities of each aggregate and resin mix. These include Moderno, (modern look) featuring a new, contemporary stylebased on a darker aggregate, Scintilla (mirror) which features mirrored glass, and Solare (radiant) a stunning design featuring on-trend yellow and orange stones.
The new UV stability formulation also enables a stunning finish to be achieved with the whiter designs in the existing range, Mondeco Arctic, which sees a new design addition, with a much whiter marble, named ‘Snow’, completing a choice of threewhite shades in the collection.
Developed to stylishly stand the test of time, Flowcrete Mondeco offers exceptional strength and impact resistance, combined with low maintenance requirements. It also brings solid sustainability credentials, primarily due to the longevity of the finish, which can last the lifetime of a building.
It also has a low VOC formulation and depending on the design, up to 60 per cent of Flowcrete Mondeco’s composition can also be drawn from recycled clear, coloured mirror glass chippings.
Michelle Mendes, Flowcrete Market Manager, said: “With a rich variety of colourful and decorative aggregates, seamless terrazzo is the ideal choice to transform a simple entryway or corridor into a space of power and elegance.
“Mondeco can be installed in a variety of complicated patterns and precision cut forms using brass or aluminium trims, which are laid on the surface of the floor in a matrix that designates each area of the design.
“It is so adaptable, it can be pre-cast in different moulds and shapes to create stair treads and risers, allowing for a seamless transition between the floor and wall.
”“We’ve set out to launch an enhanced seamless terrazzo flooring offer, which has been simplified in terms of the specification experience and delivers new advances in creativity and performance.
“The launch represents years of research and development, to make this stunning floor finish better than ever. It’s also much easier to install, making sure the contractor can keep to tight deadlines and work better with other trades on site.
”The new Flowcrete Mondeco range is the ideal choice for a wide variety of locations with very high footfall, from shopping centres to stadiums, in fact anywhere that needs a high performance, attractive finish with reinforced UV resistance and colour stability over time.
It joins other systems in the Mondeco portfolio, completing a total of 12 collections to choose from, including a fast-curing version, Mondeco Rapide, and an electrostatic terrazzo option, Mondeco ESD TZ. It also offers a version with silver ion-based anti-microbial technology for the ultimate in hygiene performance, which is popular in operating theatres and pharma.
As well as exceptional products, as a Construction Products Group (CPG) UK company, Flowcrete customers also have access to enhanced resources, including technical support from industry experts.
Full training, including RIBA Approved CPDs currently delivered virtually, application training (both practical and theory) and on-site support such as surveys, complete the service package. In line with the new Mondeco launch, Flowcrete has introduced a new RIBA approved CPD seminar, ‘Specifying Seamless Resin Terrazzo.
At Futurebuild, Flowcrete will also be highlighting its focus on innovation, reflected in one of their most recent product launches, Isocrete Flowing K Screed, which was launched last year.
Offering the latest in liquid screed technology, the unique formulation of Isocrete Flowing K Screed allows the system to be trafficked in as little as 24 hours, depending on site conditions.
With compelling speed of application benefits, a 10-year warranty, less waste and exceptional strength, the system is applied through Flowcrete’s licensed contractor network.
Another example of innovation on show at Futurebuild is Flowcrete’s Floorzone concept, a floor build-up system which includes damp proof membranes, underfloor heating, acoustic installations, and high-performance resin finishes.
Developed to fast-track projects and offer more quality control, with everything delivered under a single-source, single-warranty programme, the system has gone from strength to strength in the UK and sets the benchmark for a high performance, sustainable specification process.
At Futurebuild, Flowcrete, under the CPG Europe banner, will be joined by the other CPG UK family of brands, including illbruck, Dryvit, Nudura, Nullifire and TREMCO.
Catering for a wide array of different construction needs and providing a wealth of complex services, support and systems that are rarely found together, these brands offer a sustainable and innovation solution to all six sides of the building envelope, covering insulation, flooring, sealing and bonding, as well as fire protection.
Michelle Mendes added: “Our full system approach represents a unique offer to the specification sector and is something that the marketplace has not seen before. “It means architects, developers and other specifiers can create stunning floors that create a wow-factor while also blending in with any environment, and mixing with other materials such as wood, carpets, soft furnishings.
