Bostik has introduced SL-Rapid to the marketplace. A rapid-setting, cement-based, self-leveling underlayment, SL-Rapid creates a smooth, flat and level surface prior to the installation of floor coverings. Its fast-setting, low shrinkage and superior leveling properties make it the ideal product for time-sensitive and demanding applications on, above, or below grade.

Harder surface flooring finishes such as ceramic tile and natural stone can be installed over it as quickly as one hour after SL-Rapid becomes “walkable.” Moisture-sensitive floor coverings such as wood, carpet, VCT, vinyl sheet goods and rubber can generally be installed in four hours after the underlayment is walkable.

“SL Rapid is not only is it a highly fluid self-leveler for easy smoothing and pouring… it is also mold and mildew-resistant," said Scott Banda, Bostik director of marketing and business development.
