Flowcrete UK is delighted to announce that it has been chosen as a finalist of the Tomorrow’s Contract Floor Awards 2019.
Organised by industry trade magazine – Tomorrow’s Contract Floors – the awards feature 50 of the top products and services launched throughout the year.
Finalists of the Tomorrow's Contract Floors Awards will be formally announced in November with the publication of the Tomorrow’s Contract Floors Awards Guide.
A public poll opened in the first week of January and will close on March 15th 2019 ahead of the Awards Ceremony where the top three companies will be announced.
Flowcrete has been selected as a finalist for its fast-cure terrazzo flooring system, Mondéco Rapide.
Based on an innovative technology known as PUMA, Mondéco Rapide brings together the rapid curing power of methyl methacrylate (MMA) technology with the resilience of polyurethane. This combination is what makes Mondéco Rapide such a significant step forward in the terrazzo flooring world.
Sales Director for Flowcrete UK, Chris Dobbie, said: “Being able to provide the same speed of cure of an MMA system alongside the flexibility and durability of polyurethane positions Mondéco Rapide as a truly unique offering in the market.
“With traditional systems, long curing times and lack of flexibility mean that typically terrazzo projects slow down construction programmes due to works having to be done in stages and trades not being able to work while the floor is being laid.
“By using Mondéco Rapide, we were able to reduce the overall installation time associated with epoxy or polyurethane resin terrazzo flooring systems by up to 75%.”
Mondéco Rapide creates a smooth, luxurious finish and its extensive design potential means that custom colours can be installed in completely bespoke patterns. Even the floor’s shimmer and shine can be tailored by altering the aggregate blend that goes into the finish. Aggregates such as locally sourced marble, mother-of-pearl and recycled glass are all available to achieve the precise glittering lustre that is desired.
In addition to its rapid rate of cure, the tough and elastic nature of polyurethane enhances the flexibility of the MMA resin, which means that it can be easily applied on tiles and difficult substrates. This property further streamlines the installation process, as the applicators don’t have to spend time working on the substrate. Other trades are also able to work alongside the product, allowing for a more concentrated schedule that saves time and cuts costs.
