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 elastomericwaterproofing/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: Keene Building Products is a manufacturer of 3-dimensional filament products for noise control. Our noise products are designed for construction projects such as multi-family apartments and condominiums to stop impact and airborne noise. Quiet Qurl® was designed to provide code complaint noise reduction with most typical finished floors and joist assemblies. When used with a gypsum concrete pour this low profile system can achieve code STC and IIC needs. Quiet Qurl® products are available with traditional moisture control (MC) fabric, and with new enhancements: MT and RF. Quiet Qurl® products have a range of thicknesses from 0.125 inch to 0.75 inch. Quiet Qurl® MT is the most exciting technology we’ve developed. This “Muffling Technology” is available on any Quiet Qurl® product and adds a conformable bottom side muffler to the sound control mat. Quiet Qurl® RF is a fabric separation used to reinforce gypsum concrete in thin applications. The combination fiberglass fabric and coated fiberglass scrim acts to enhance tensile strength in the gypsum. Tensile strength has improved above 10% with the RF fabric. QQ Step Soft™ is a 100% recycled product that can be used directly under tile, engineered wood and traditional hardwood. The 1 mm to 8 mm product is full adhered when the finished flooring is fully adhered and loose laid when the finish flooring is floating.

Product Names: Outstanding lightweight crack-isolation membrane is a snap to install.

Mapeguard™ 2 is a peel-and-stick membrane that is 35% lighter than previous generations and offers high-performance, in-plane crack isolation up to 3/8” (10 mm).  This semi-rigid sheet easily cuts to size and positions without losing its form. This membrane is the ideal solution for crack isolation in flooring installations for high traffic, commercial settings and multi-story buildings. 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 floor coverings.
