Bostik Flooring Unveils Ultra-Set SingleStep

Published on 2010-03-24. Author : SpecialChem

Middleton, Mass -- Bostik's Construction & Industrial Business Unit is pleased to unveil its latest hardwood flooring installation innovation: ULTRA-SET® SingleStep™. Under development, testing and fine-tuning for the past two years, ULTRA-SET SingleStep serves FIVE functions in a SINGLE step: It's a tenacious wood flooring adhesive that also provides moisture protection, sound deadening, crack isolation and mold protection.

Bostik Flooring Unveils Ultra-Set SingleStep

ULTRA-SET SingleStep is a tacking formulation with very low moisture permeability. The high-performance adhesive incorporates Bostik's patent-pending Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology to ensure proper membrane thickness between the hardwood and substrate. ULTRA-SET SingleStep also features Bostik's BLOCKADE™ antimicrobial protection."A green product, ULTRA-SET SingleStep wood flooring adhesive contains zero VOC content and it incorporates post-consumer recycled content," says Phil Pitts, Bostik Hardwood Installation Products Market Manager. "This is a rare green building innovation that also saves contractors quite a bit of green - labor time and materials - by successfully tackling five jobs at once, with no limitations and no sacrifice in performance."

There are NO gimmicks associated with this adhesive. ULTRA-SET SingleStep protects against any amount of moisture on the subfloor and helps prevent mold. As an adhesive and crack-isolation membrane, it exceeds all related building standards. And as an acoustical barrier, it stands in a class of its own.

"No other single-step hardwood flooring adhesive possesses the acoustical barrier characteristics of ULTRA-SET SingleStep," Pitts adds.

Designed for the installation of all hardwood flooring types including solids, bamboo, engineered and parquet, ULTRA-SET SingleStep is a one-part, trowel-applied, moisture-cure urethane adhesive that is available in four-gallon pails.

"ULTRA-SET SingleStep is easy to trowel, develops incredible tack and holds a great ridge," says Robert McNamara, Director of Marketing & Sales for Bostik's Flooring Group within the C&I Business Unit. "And unlike other competitive single-step products, ULTRA-SET SingleStep does NOT require special tools or care for application; standard trowels can be used."
