Fontana, Calif.—W.F. Taylor Co. Inc. announced a unique industry breakthrough product—the patent pending Acous-Tec Sound Reducing Liquid Underlayment Patch and Leveler. Taylor Acous-Tec Sound Reducing Liquid Underlayment Patch and Leveler is designed for all floating floor systems including vinyl tile/plank, laminate and wood to reduce sound transmission.
Taylor Acous-Tec Technology is not a new science, it currently exists in Taylor MS-Plus Resilient Adhesive as a feature and benefit for the installer. Because of MS-Plus Resilient’s phenomenal success with lowering sound transmission, installers led Taylor to see the need for a liquid sound barrier product that doesn’t exist on the market. “By popular demand Taylor has announced our first underlayment, Acous-Tec, as its own stand-alone product,” said Jack Raidy, president and CEO of Taylor.
“It is a perfect product for both commercial installers and retail DIYers,” said Barry Wright, vice president of Taylor. “Simply trowel the low VOC and UL GREENGUARD certified liquid underlayment, watch it self-level and rapidly cure, then install the floating floor on top of the underlayment all in the same day. Whether it is used in a high rise apartment building or a consumers home, it will dramatically reduce sound and quiet your floor.”
