MAPEI has introduced a fast-drying skim-coat and finishing mortar to its surface preparation range.
Planiprep Skimcoat is a fine polymer-modified cement-based product designed for repair, levelling and feathering.
The mortar is suitable for skimming uneven subfloors and joints, filling screw-holes in plywood surfaces and repairing other minor surface defects.
Planiprep Skimcoat is designed for professional trowel application onto clean, dry surfaces and is mixed with water to achieve a paste-like consistency.
Available in 10kg bags, it gives around coverage of 1kg per sq m per mm of thickness. At 3mm thick, it is claimed to set in 30 minutes, to be suitable for light foot traffic after two hours and to be ready for bonding of floorcoverings after four to six hours.
