We will explain the application of cement-based self-leveling compounds for indoor/outdoor use, the application and benefits of new self-leveling technologies and fiber reinforced compounds for critical substrates on renovation projects.  Presenter: Karen Bellinger of SCHONOX – High Performance Subfloors.

The Risk of Excluding Initial Floor Maintenance – Is there a risk in not contracting the initial maintenance for the floor covering you installed?  We will review that each manufacturer has specific initial maintenance requirements for their product to perform to specification and to validate their warranty. Presenters: Haim Bar-Noy of nora systems, Inc. and Gerry Swift of Mike’s Flooring Companies.

Is Your Concrete Concrete?  Avoiding Failures When the Floor Might Be Gypcrete, Fly Ash Concrete or a Lightweight Aggregate – Avoiding failures when the floor might be gypsum-based or when the concrete might have fly ash in it, or lightweight aggregate, or has been treated with silicates.  We will discuss different types of “concrete” substrates you might run into, how to identify what you have, how to understand what you are dealing with and most importantly how to install over it.  Presenters:  Jeff Johnson of MAPEI and Bruce Newbrough of Ardex Americas .
