A SUSTAINABLE SYSTEM


Mapei have researched and manufactured environmentally friendly products for resilient and textile floor coverings since the early 1980’s and the results of this means that Mapei are able to offer a full system of sub-floor preparation products which reach the highest environmental standards – as demonstrated on this month’s front cover.


vThe resilient flooring industry is gradually becoming ‘greener’ in its practices. The products which are used to prepare and secure floor coverings are, more than ever, being manufactured to rigorous standards which will ultimately protect the environment from damage inflicted from traditional heavily solvented products.


Mapei’s Mapeproof 1 K Turbo damp proof membrane; Eco Prim T primer; Ultraplan Eco, Ultraplan Renovation Screed and Latexplan Trade levelling & smoothing compounds and Mapei’s Ultrabond Eco range of adhesives all form part of Mapei’s complete sustainable system for resilient floor coverings.

All of these products are self regulated and comply with Mapei’s ‘Green Innovation Program’ which assists Project Designers and Contractors achieve LEED or BREEAM accreditation on projects. They have also been impartially tested by GEV (Gemeinscaft Emissionkontrollierte Verlegwerstoffe Kebstoffe und Bauprodukte). The association checks emissions of flooring products and when meeting certain standards they are awarded GEV EC1, EC1 Plus, EC1R or EC1R Plus. All of these products also carry GEV –Emicode accreditation ensuring ultra-low emissions of volatile organic compounds.


All Mapei products in the sustainable system for


resilient floor coverings are solvent free and have ultra- low emissions of volatile organic compounds. This accreditation ensures that installers who work in close proximity to the products aren’t subjected to any harmful gasses emanating from adhesives. The GEV Emicode EC1 labelling also confirms that not only the installers, but the occupiers will not be affected by any harmful emissions when the building is in use.


These products all perform to the highest quality, contrary to popular belief that eco credentials can affect the end performance of the product. These products are also completely compatible with each other – ensuring a long lasting final finish.
