On stand C147 of Ecobuild 2017, Flowcrete UK will be showcasing its range of resin finishes and sub floor screeds that have been designed to create environmentally friendly floors as well as introducing new concrete repair products to the UK market.
The fast drying Isocrete Alpha Screed is particularly popular among developers of large-scale, high-rise and demanding construction projects thanks to the fact that large quantities of it can be quickly and easily installed. It is also one of the greenest screeds on the market, as 95% of the system’s alpha hemi-hydrate calcium sulphate binder is reclaimed from industrial by-products, minimising the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Isocrete Alpha Screed is an evolution of traditional anhydrite flowing screeds, as it has a 20% faster drying time and its laitance free finish means that sanding is not required prior to applying a coating - significantly speeding up the overall installation timescale.
At Ecobuild 2017, attendees will also be able to learn about the Floorzone package, which enables specifiers and architects to source each element of a floor build up from only one place! The Floorzone includes decorative finishes such as the seamless resin terrazzo Mondéco range, green screeds, energy efficient under floor heating and noise reducing acoustic insulation.
As of this year, Flowcrete UK is now also able to supply a range of Euclid Chemical concrete repair mortars. There are many factors that must be considered before selecting a concrete repair solution such as location, climate, in-service conditions, and potential corrosives to name just a few. Having access to Euclid Chemical’s high quality products, which have been the repair mortars of choice in the US for a long time, will ensure that developers can easily access the right option for them.
Flowcrete UK has analysed its products and manufacturing processes in order to make its solutions more environmentally friendly. This has led to limiting the use of substances such as Ordinary Portland Cement as well as supplying its products in UN Certified Intermediate Bulk Containers to reduce packaging waste. The durability of Flowcrete UK’s resin systems also provides end users with green benefits, as the longevity of its floors avoids the environmental damage incurred by a flooring refurbishment.
Thanks to the environmentally pro-active credentials of its systems, Flowcrete is able to assist architects and specifiers to qualify for green building credits through initiatives such as BREEAM and LEED®.
