Weber's award-winning products with Low Dust Technology™ are the first choice of professional tile fixers
31 08 2016
Low Dust Technology™ is an innovative, advanced formulation that significantly reduces airborne dust created during the pouring and mixing processes.
Low Dust Technology™ was first introduced to weberset rapid SPF almost a decade ago and more recently to weberfloor flex and weberset pro lite-rapid, without compromising the premium characteristics of the original products.
Since its introduction customers have benefitted from Saint-Gobain Weber's easy-to apply, labour saving and technically superior products enjoying a cleaner and more comfortable working environment with less post-application cleaning up and less waste. The three products also carry Weber Rewards stickers where unique codes can be registered at www.loveweberco.uk as part of the refreshed Weber Rewards loyalty scheme.
weberfloor flex is a high performance, fibre-modified, cement-based, self-smoothing screed used for correcting irregularities on difficult surfaces such as concrete slabs, pre-cast elements, wooden flooring and existing ceramic and rigid plastic tiles. It is also suitable for floating floors and floors with under-floor heating, and will cover flexible coverings, parquet flooring and certain floor paints and can be applied up to 50mm in just one pour. Improvements to the formula of weberfloor flex have resulted in a set-time for light foot traffic, following application, to 1-2 hours allowing fastest possible access for other trades. In June '16 weberfloor flex won the Best Internal/Interior Product at the Housebuilder Product Awards and is now shortlisted in the Product of the Year category at the Housebuilder Awards in November '16.
weberset rapid SPF is a rapid setting, flexible, cement-based floor and wall adhesive suitable for interior and exterior use. Ready for light foot traffic and grouting after only two hours, it is available in light grey and white, and packaged in 20kg paper sacks. It can be used to fix all ceramic, porcelain and natural stone floor and wall tiles. It is also perfectly suited to under-floor heating applications and on wooden floors that have been over-boarded with WBP plywood or a suitable thickness of cement or fibre board.
weberset pro lite-rapid floor tile adhesive is suitable for use on all solid substrates, including under-floor heating, and has a high polymer content which provides ultra-flexibility (S2), whilst still maintaining a strong C2 bond strength. As the product contains lightweight materials it enables up to 35% extra coverage based on average usage of weberset pro lite-rapid versus other standard Weber tile adhesives. weberset pro lite-rapid also contains Cement Replacement Technology providing an environmentally friendly formulation. The adhesive's rapid-setting qualities allow light foot traffic and grouting in just two hours.
Weber products with Low Dust Technology™ are manufactured in the UK at facilities in Bedfordshire, Shropshire and Northern Ireland, helping to ensure product quality, uniformity and availability with reduced transportation costs and CO₂ emissions.
