COVER STORY


As with any competitive environment, research and development is a necessary process to deliver optimum performance results. Within the contract flooring industry, F. Ball continue to reach beyond the horizon, ever searching for greater improvements to make their product range even better. The F. Ball team firmly believe that ‘resting on one’s laurels’ is not an option, and the only way to stay one step ahead is to continually strive to be the best by moving forwards.


By combining the very latest cement technologies, the F. Ball team created this latex-free and ammonia free, self- smoothing underlayment that achieves very fast setting and drying times when used for preparing sound internal subfloors.


With a working time of 20 minutes and a walk-on time of one hour, Stopgap 1200 Pro can be ready to receive new

floorcoverings from only four hours. It is protein-free, making it suitable for use in clinical and biologically sensitive areas such as hospitals, laboratories and clean rooms, and is also approved for use in marine application by Det Norske Veritas.


Stopgap 1200 Pro remains unaffected by moisture and can even be applied over damp, clean, uneven concrete and sand/cement screeds, prior to application of Stopgap Waterproof Surface Membranes or Stopgap Isolator Membrane.


The product is also low odour, can be used over a range of subfloors, is suitable for patch filling of timber floors prior to overlaying with plywood and can be applied ‘unfilled’ to a maximum thickness of 10mm, or ‘filled’ with a graded aggregate for applications of up to 30mm. This makes it a great choice for today’s contract flooring professionals who need a reliable


and guaranteed solution to challenging flooring projects.


Available now throughout the UK, sporting its instantly recognisable F. Ball livery, in 20kg yellow bags and 5l yellow bottles, F. Ball’s Stopgap 1200 Pro is proving to be more cost effective than any other product currently available.


At last, there is a winning alternative that does not compromise on quality or performance and is great value for money. So, if you haven’t yet tried F. Ball's all new Stopgap 1200 Pro, you could be missing out on the best thing to happen to the contract flooring industry in years.
