Mapei South Africa is excited to announce the launch of its new locally manufactured self-levelling compound – ULTRAPLAN ECO 20. As a direct result of requests from the market, the decision was taken to add this innovative new product into our basket as an add on to the existing ULTRAPLAN range which has been available for some time.
“ULTRAPLAN ECO has proven to be a fantastic product and will continue to be ideal for use in the environments that are subjected to heavy traffic due to its 26-30Mpa compressive strength. MAPEI subsequently encountered requests for a solution for residential and light traffic areas which lead to the development of ULTRAPLAN ECO 20 which has all the benefits and features of ULTRAPLAN ECO, but with a lower compressive strength.” explains Chad Tosen – Technical Sales Consultant for Soft Coverings and Industrial Flooring.
This high-quality, self-levelling solution is a rapid-setting compound which can be used to correct substrates with thicknesses of between 1 to 10mm. Furthermore, it has very low emissions of volatile organic compounds making it safe to use internally without any additional safety equipment and minimal impact on the environment. Once mixed with water, ULTRAPLAN ECO 20 becomes an easily workable self-levelling compound which can be applied via either a trowel or pin rake. For larger applications in excess of 100m2, an automatic pressure pump can also be used.
ULTRAPLAN ECO 20 will be easily identifiable on site as the finished product is pale pink in appearance. This will be a benefit to all end users as it ensures the correct product is used for the correct application.
MAPEI South Africa has extended the ULTRAPLAN range to include ULTRAPLAN MAXI which will be available to the local market in the near future. ULTRAPLAN MAXI accommodates thicknesses from 1 and 40mm in a single application whilst still encompassing all the standard features of the ULTRAPLAN range.
