weberfloor flex with Low Dust Technology just got quicker

12 01 2015

Recent technical improvements to Saint-Gobain Weber's weberfloor flex with Low Dust Technology has resulted in improved set-time by as much as two hours.

Established as one of Weber’s top selling floor screeds the set-time for light foot traffic following application has improved from 2-4 hours down to 1-2 hours, allowing fastest possible access.

weberfloor flex with Low Dust Technology is a high performance, cement-based, self-smoothing and self-levelling renovation screed.  It is used for correcting irregularities on difficult surfaces including 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.  weberfloor flex with Low Dust Technology can be built up to a maximum thickness of 50mm and its fibre-modified formula increases strength and resilience. In humid situations such as kitchens, bathrooms, spas and indoor pool areas, webersys protect tanking system may be applied over weberfloor flex.

“This intelligent renovation screed has excellent levelling properties with improved bond,” says Peter Temprell, sales and marketing director, Saint-Gobain Weber, “but its new rapid-setting performance puts it in a league of its own.  It is exactly what the industry, property owners and professional applicators want.”

Low Dust Technology, which is already present in selected best-selling products in Weber’s tile fixing range, significantly reduces airborne dust created during the pouring and mixing processes without compromising the premium characteristics of the original product.

Low Dust Technology makes products more comfortable, cleaner and convenient to use,” continues Mr Temprell, “and it is also present in weberset rapid SPF, an ultra-fast application product in Weber’s tile range, which allows 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.
