DEPENDABLE WHITE SKIMCOAT? is still the best smooth spreading, quick setting, high strength, fast drying, adhesive friendly patch and underlayment used for 55 years. SKIMCOAT is an ideal material to cover and level defects in virtually any subfloor or surface.  Professional floor installers, carpenters, painters and other quality tradesmen prefer and depend on DEPENDABLE WHITE SKIMCOAT.  It also exceeds requirements of ASTM F 710 “Standard Practice for Preparing Concrete Floors to Receive Resilient Flooring.”

DEPENDABLE SKIMCRETE¨ XL is a fast drying, fast cover, latex modified, Portland cement patch.

SKIMCRETE XL is fine textured making it smooth and creamy, offering great finishability.  SKIMCRETE XL is fast drying, yet it has a long pot lifeÉextending your opportunities, not delaying your finish.  Exceeds requirements of ASTM F 710 “Standard Practice for Preparing Concrete Floors to Receive Resilient Flooring.”

CUTDOWN II¨ is a two part product featuring complex cross-linked latex polymers that reduces moisture vapor transmission and odor through concrete slabs.  CUTDOWN II reduces up to 15 pounds of moisture vapor transmission (when tested according to ASTM F1869) to 3 lbs. or less for the installation of floor covering systems OR to isolate cut-back and other adhesive residue, to allow safe installation of floor covering without fear of discoloration or bleed through.

VAPORSEAL? DB is a 2 component moisture tolerant epoxy based product that reduces 25 lb. MVER vapor transmission to near zero.    VAPORSEAL? DB is easy to install and is compatible with most floor covering systems. Including VCT, sheet vinyl, wood, laminates, carpet and epoxy floor systems.  VAPORSEAL? DB is available in two formulations, one a 12-hour cure and the other a 5 hour cure for those jobs that have little downtime.

DEPENDABLE GSL¨ is a unique polymer modified, high strength, gypsum cement self leveling underlayment that covers virtually any surface (even encapsulates inferior gypsum products) with the greatest tolerance of deflection or flexibility.  Applications from nearly a featheredge up to 3” depth can be achieved in a single pour. GSL remains flowable for nearly an hour yet withstands foot traffic at any dept in about two hours. GSL is non-alkaline, adhesive friendly, non staining mildewcide protected and withstands construction/renovation traffic

DEPENDABLE’s SKIMFLOW? product line consists of 4 unique, flowable, self-leveling underlayments designed to smooth or level properly prepared substrates. Skimflow ES has a long working time ? remains flowable 30-45 minutes and pours up to 1½ ” thick.  Skimflow RS is fastest to cover where little down time is available. Skimflow LC is an economical self leveling underlayment that is for those large projects.  Skimflow Lite is designed to add 1/3 less weight to the structure than standard floor leveling systems and pours up to 2” thick.

WEARFLOW ¨ is a polymer modified blended cement self leveling wear resistant topping.  Wearflow is designed to level and resurface degraded industrial or commercial concrete floor surfaces. Wearflow has rapid strength development which will resurface from ¼” to 2” thickness in a single lift. Wearflow’s heavy duty industrial wear surface has superior abrasion resistance and a sealer is not required.

MagBacker? is a Class “A” fire-rated, moisture resistant high-performance tile backer, floor underlayment, and wet area panel that is resistant to mold, mildew and insects, while being 25% lighter and 20% stronger than other panels used in the residential and commercial construction industry.

MagBacker? is free of both gypsum and Portland-based cement. It is also produced with 20% recycled post-industrial waste, and 15% recycled post-industrial “no added urea formaldehyde” wood cellulose fiber. The production process is chemically reacted, which requires less energy to produce ? potentially leaving a lower carbon footprint compared to similar traditional building products. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED¨) points can be awarded for indoor air quality for “no added urea formaldehyde,” which naturally resists mold and mildew. Additionally, MagBacker? surface construction is paperless and has no living food source, which can also mitigate mold/mildew growth. MagBacker? panels can be cut three ways: with snips; a utility knife; or power tools. Due to the fine inherit dust generated when cutting with power tools, wearing safety glasses and a Niosh-approved dust mask is recommended. MagBacker? can be recycled to divert construction debris from landfills or incinerators. Potential LEED points when using MagBacker?: Indoor air quality; EQ 4.3 & 4.4 Construction IAQ management Plan; 3.0 & 3.1 Waste construction management; 2.1 & 2.2 Recycled content; 4.1 & 4.2 Building durability; MR8 MagBacker? is produced in thicknesses from 1/4” to 1/2” and available in panel sizes of 3’x 5’, 4’x4’ and 4’x8’.
