Home News First Laticrete SuperCap pump truck arrives in Ontario

Toronto, Ontario, Canada—SuperCap Ontario has announced the arrival of its first pump truck, which will allow construction professionals here to finish new concrete or level existing slabs to the highest standard in record time while significantly reducing project costs.

Pioneered by multi-national firm Laticrete Supercap LLC, the SuperCap Mobile Blending Unit (SMBU) mixes the proprietary engineered self-leveling cement formula at the job site using a computer-controlled on board system. The mix is then delivered from street level to heights of over 50 stories, eliminating the need for hauling unmixed materials into the building. Laticrete SuperCap applicators install the product onto the subfloor at a rate of up to 30,000 pounds per hour, making 50,000 square foot installations possible in a single day.

The Laticrete SuperCap SC500 is the most advanced self-leveling underlayment on the market today, noted William Loveys, vice president of SuperCap Ontario, the exclusive supplier of the system in the province. The low alkali formula offers fast curing times, allowing foot traffic to resume in two to four hours. “Combined with the delivery capabilities of the SMBU, the system is the answer to ensuring that all flatness tolerances are met with minimal project disruption.

“The Laticrete SuperCap system is changing traditional methods of finishing and capping concrete slabs throughout the world and we’re thrilled to bring this cutting-edge technology to Ontario,” he explained. “It has been proven to be better, faster, safer and less expensive on hundreds of job sites and over millions of square feet in major metropolitan areas. There’s nothing else like it on the market today.”

“Today’s leading architects, engineers, contractors and developers are specifying the Laticrete SuperCap system for all new construction,” said Loveys. “We expect our pump truck to become a regular sight at residential high-rise, retail, office and health care construction sites province-wide.”

Ontario is North America’s second-largest commercial, high-rise and industrial flooring market. The launch of the pump truck is particularly timely for Toronto, which leads all North America cities in terms of high-rise buildings under construction. According to a recent City of Toronto report, Toronto has 185 projects underway this year, compared with Mexico City (88) and New York (80).

SuperCap Ontario has tested the performance of the Laticrete SuperCap system in large Toronto construction projects, such as the Aura tower, which is slated to become the tallest residential structure in North America.
