Norwalk, Conn. -- Metroflor recently announced a partnership with Magnetic Building Solutions (MBS), in concert with the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), to develop LVT products utilizing the new MBS technology, MagneBuild. The new underlayment system enables the rapid installation of flooring or wall tiles without locking systems or adhesives.
The magnetic underlayment adheres to an integrated ferrite (iron) film which is laminated to the bottom of select Metroflor LVT products. By rolling out the MagneBuild underlayment over any smooth, clean and dry subfloor, flooring can be installed faster and more easily. The technology eliminates adhesive-related VOC’s and reduces labor and removal costs. It also solves other key flooring concerns such as the need for moisture barriers and crack isolation membranes.
