RAPID SET RANGE Setcrete has launched Setcrete Rapid Set Flexible Wood Flooring Adhesive, and a new Concrete Repair Mortar (CRM). The first of the products is a fast-setting wood flooring adhesive that cures in just 16 hours. Part of the Setcrete ‘Rapid Set’ range, this new adhesive is suitable for the installation of engineered or solid timber planks, wood block and wood strip flooring.

Formulated to be flexible with a high bond strength, the adhesive delivers optimum performance to

meet the demands of wood flooring installations, in particular, coping with the natural movement of wood caused by changes in temperature and humidity. The adhesive is also suitable for use on floors with underfloor heating systems and, because it is solvent-free, it can be used in even the most sensitive settings, including healthcare environments.

Launched alongside it, Setcrete’s Rapid Set CRM can be used for the non-structural repair of lower strength concrete elements such as floor screeds, concrete paving slabs, balcony edges and stair treads, as well as being suitable for producing gradient ramps and for

vertical applications. The fast-setting product, which has a walk-on time of just 60 minutes, can be used in applications between 3mm and 20mm deep, and helps tradesmen achieve a surface that is free from cracks and imperfections. It also has a water mix formulation for ease of use.

The specially designed repair mortar can be used in damp conditions and has excellent freeze/thaw resistance when used in external environments. As well as providing a specialist solution for the repairing of external surfaces, Setcrete Rapid Set CRM is highly moisture tolerant, making it suitable for internal applications in damp areas before installing a damp proof membrane (DPM). Furthermore, the product is low odour and has a protein-free formulation, making it ideal for use in biologically sensitive areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms.


PLATFORM Utilitywise has launched a new reporting platform that gives energy users better insight and clarity into the way their organisation is using energy and water. Utility Insight converts the data feeds from utility meters, sub-meters, Utilitywise’s OBox and Edd:e systems into easy- to-understand information that can be viewed on any computer with web access.

The service is operated in tandem with a Utilitywise energy consultant who will advise on how best to act on the data, including energy-saving tips.

Energy Services Director, Tim Hipperson, said: “A financial

director won’t want the same information as a FM, so Utility Insight will automatically deliver tailored, bespoke reports, with the correct information, to those who want it. Whether a business wants to compare last week’s water use across sites or check small power

use across the whole group but only on the third floor, we can offer that data quickly, and most importantly, in an easy- to-understand format. TOMORROW’S FM | 51
