Home Categories Installation Mapei launches Planiprep 4 LVT

Deerfield Beach, Fla.— Planiprep 4 LVT, a new high-moisture-resistant skimcoat and embossing leveler from Mapei, can be used to level off and smooth over existing ceramic and stone surfaces. The premixed, acrylic-resin-based product is designed for use in interior residential and commercial applications.

“It can be used to level down to a featheredge or to smooth over in layers up to 1.5mm thick,” said Jeff Johnson, business manager for floor covering installation systems. “Planiprep 4 LVT dries fast and sands easily. It can be used to fill embossing on existing vinyl flooring as well as grout lines on existing tile for floor and wall installations.”

Planiprep 4 LVT hardens quickly, allowing for the installation of luxury vinyl tile within two hours of the product being applied. “It has also been formulated to dry without shrinkage, reducing the need for secondary applications to fill embossing or depressions,” Johnson explained.

Planiprep 4 LVT can be used as a fine-textured smoothing finish over existing resilient flooring, LVT, EVP, and luxury vinyl plank, ceramic tile and stone materials. It can also be used successfully over traditional substrates, including concrete, approved wood underlayments, gypsum underlayments, cement-based self-leveling underlayments and patching compounds and fiber cement boards.
