LATICRETE Introduces its enhanced DRYTEK® Skimcoat Premium Quality Underlayment
LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced its enhanced DRYTEK® Skimcoat fast-drying, premium quality underlayment. The improved formula can now hold more water, resulting in a creamier consistency for a smoother application and sleeker finish, as well as an extended pot life and easier troweling.
Additionally, the new DRYTEK Skimcoat packaging has been redesigned with a tin tie resealable feature that allows the product to be saved for additional uses,minimizing product waste and increasing cost savings for the installer. “When re-formulating DRYTEK Skimcoat, we improved its rapid-setting properties and ease of use to make it an ideal solution for today’s schedule-and budget-driven projects without sacrificing quality,” said Product Manager Christopher Brana. DRYTEK Skimcoat can be applied from skim depth to 1″ (25 mm) and the finished flooring can be installed as soon as 20 minutes after application.
“Thanks to the innovative, convenient packaging of DRYTEK Skimcoat, contractors no longer have to waste unused product and can simply reseal the bag for later use, saving time and money. Additionally, the plastic, cube style container provides a more secure base on the jobsite and for later storage,” added Brana. Designed to meet UL GREENGUARD certification standards for low chemical emissions, the new DRYTEK Skimcoat can be utilized at high profile jobsites, including hospitals and schools.
