DEERFIELD BEACH, FL --In response to installer demand for a strong, smooth surface ready for almost any floor-covering application, Mapei has developed Planiprep SCTM -- a high-performance, fiber-reinforced skimcoating compound. Its creamy smooth texture trowels easily to create a defect-free surface.

"The characteristics of Planiprep SC deliver an easy-to-apply skimcoat that applies from featheredge up to 1 inch (2.5 cm), and its rapid-setting characteristic typically makes it ready for floor-covering installation in 30 to 60 minutes -- depending on thickness and environmental conditions," said Jeff Johnson, Business Marketing Manager for Mapei Floor Covering Installation Systems.

Planiprep SCis designed for skimcoating concrete and approved wood subfloors/underlayments. It can be used on interior floors in residential, commercial, heavy-commercial and even industrial applications. Planiprep SC is supplied in 10-pound  bags, ready for use whenever and wherever needed to provide the perfect substrate for beautiful flooring installations, reports Mapei.

Planiprep SC is available at local wholesale distribution centers.

The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
