Home News Mapei rolls out Planiprep PSC

MAPEI planiprep psc Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Mapei expanded its floor covering installation systems (FCIS) line with the addition of Planiprep PSC. The company said the product is a fast-drying, cement-based, fiber-reinforced, high-polymer-modified patch and skim-coating compound designed for preparing concrete and wood substrates for flooring installation.

Planiprep PSC is said to deliver a smooth surface to the subfloor before the installation finishes. As the newest addition to Mapei’s line of subfloor preparation products, the company said it is easy to mix, provides improved internal strength, cracks resistance and dries quickly—designed for rapid floor covering installation.

Mapei’s powerhouse R&D group specifically designed Planiprep PSC for today’s demanding floor covering installation practices,“ said Jeff Johnson, business manager for FCIS and vice chairman of associates on the executive board, as part of the Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA). “In particular, Planiprep PSC is formulated to work in perfect harmony with today’s high-performance, high-moisture resistant adhesive products and withstand the same moisture conditions without fail.”

Planiprep PSC was also said to be suitable for a variety of substrates, including radiant-heat systems, and is designed to use on high-moisture content concrete slabs (up to 15 pounds MVER and 99% RH).

Additionally, Mapei recently introduced its gapping-control adhesive in January. The product was designed for moisture resistance and pressure sensitivity.
