Product Names: Bostik’s Ultra-Set® SingleStep™ is a one-part, trowel applied, tacking, moisture-cure urethane adhesive, moisture vapor and sound reduction membrane. This scientifically-formulated adhesive and membrane is very tenacious, has very low moisture permeability, and is formulated with patent pending Thickness-Control™ Spacer Technology to ensure proper membrane thickness between hardwood flooring and the substrate. The product does not contain any water, and has zero VOC as per SCAQMD 1168. MVP4® Moisture Vapor Protection is a one-part, trowel applied, elastomeric, moisture cure urethane membrane designed to reduce moisture vapor transmission from the subfloor; create a noise reduction barrier over the substrate; and establish an anti-fracture membrane that can bridge cracks that can occur in the substrate prior to or after installation (up to 1/8”) of engineered and solid hardwood flooring. MVP4 may be used over all substrates for hardwood flooring installations including: concrete, plywood, particle or chip board (underlayment grade), well bonded vinyl, ceramic tile, cement backer board, cement patch/underlayments, radiant heat flooring, and terrazzo. MVP4 contains Bostik BLOCKADE™ antimicrobial protection. Hydroment Ultra-Set Advanced elastomeric waterproofing/crack/sound isolation membrane and setting adhesive can be used over properly prepared concrete; structurally-sound, exterior grade plywood (interior/dry use only); cementitious backer board; and existing, well-bonded vinyl/VCT or ceramic tile; prior to the installation of ceramic or stone tile. Ultra-Set Advanced may be used with gypsum-based underlayments in dry, above grade installations with minimum compressive strengths of 2,000 psi.

Product Names: QQ Step Soft™ 1mm to 8mm are sound deadening products designed for use with the Quiet Qurl® system where hard surface flooring will be used. Recommended as a means to suppress cracks in tile applications while controlling impact noise, especially at the high frequencies. The recycled rubber mat can earn LEED credits; its composition is 100% recycled rubber. Quiet Qurl® 55/025 MC MT is a nominal 0.25”, random filament, corrugated, “U” Groove core sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. Layers consist of a moisture control fabric, entangled net core & white polyester fabric. The point bonded, moisture resistant fabric is laminated to the surface so that gypsum concrete & other materials can be used to create a floating floor. On the bottom side is a highly compressible bonded polyester fabric. Quiet Qurl® RF is an alternative for all three versions of the standard Quiet Qurl product. It is designed for use when the gypsum concrete pour is not to standard thickness (1” with QQ 55/025, 1.5” with QQ 60/040 and always with QQ 65/075). The product combines a fiberglass fabric and a fiberglass scrim together, in combination with the standard entangled net core material. A fiberglass fabric is laminated to the surface so that gypsum concrete or concrete can be placed to create a floating floor. Quiet Qurl® Reinforcement RWT-040 is a 0.375” (9 mm), random filament, geometric patterned core crack suppression mat used to reinforce gypsum concrete & many types of concrete in thin applications. The 3/8” (8 mm) thickness product provides the added strength needed in the assembly when the gypsum concrete is less than traditional 1½” (50 mm) topping.

Product Names: Mapeguard™ 2 Premium Crack-Isolation and Sound-Reduction Sheet Membrane is a next-generation, flexible thin, 40-mil lightweight, load-bearing, fabric-reinforced “peel-and-stick” crack-isolation membrane. After application, ceramic tile or stone can be installed immediately with any polymer-modified cement-based mortar (ANSI A118.4 or better). Glue-down wood flooring can also be installed with any MAPEI urethane adhesive. Mapeguard 2 helps prevent existing or future in-plane floor cracks (with movement up to 3/8” [10 mm] wide) from transmitting through grout, ceramic tile or natural stone. It also reduces impact sound (footsteps, dropped objects, etc.) and airborne sound (voice, TV, etc.) transmission through floors when installed under ceramic tile, stone or wood flooring.
