Installing entrance matting

Tilemaster Adhesives’ Professional Flooring Products Range includes two floor preparation products that are ideal for use in entrances and walkways, prior to installing all types of entrance matting - from synthetic to stainless steel, in exterior and interior entrances and circulation areas.   Tilemaster Super Flow 30 is a two-part self-levelling and smoothing compound, onto which entrance matting can be installed after 90 minutes. Tilemaster FAST One Coat DPM is a fast curing two-component epoxy DPM for use when installing onto green screeds, or where there is a need to control rising moisture/damp from the substrate below.  In tandem, the products offer the Tilemaster Adhesives ‘Fast Track System’. 

Tilemaster Super Flow 30 is ultra-rapid drying, protein-free and features advanced binder system technology, for superior flow and self-levelling.  It provides an exceptional surface finish and is suitable for a wide variety of substrates - from concrete to timber.  It can be applied from depths of 2mm - 15mm in one application and can accept light foot traffic after 30 minutes.  Tilemaster Super Flow 30 can also be used to pre-smooth before installing Tilemaster FAST One Coat DPM and it can be applied over old adhesive residues, including bitumen.  It can also be used directly over a liquid DPM, amongst other substrates, without the need to prime.

Tilemaster FAST One Coat DPM can be applied to cement based substrates with a Relative Humidity reading of up to 98%, or 87% RH for calcium sulphate based screeds, and is fast curing; smoothing compounds can be applied after 4 – 5 hours.   When no substrate DPM is present, the product can also be utilised as a constructional DPM when applied at a suitable thickness.

The Tilemaster ‘Fast Track System’ allows for pre-smoothing of the substrate with Super Flow 30, FAST One Coat DPM installation and application of the final smoothing layer of Super Flow 30 in as little as seven hours, enabling project completion within one day or during a single overnight installation.
