Mapei Ultratop – Fast setting self-levelling mortar
Mapei Ultratop – Fast setting self-levelling mortar, based on special hydraulic binders for abrasion-resistant flooring, thickness from 5 to 40 mm. Ultratop is a self-levelling product in powder available in light grey, white, beige, rust red, anthracite and standard (beige going on light brown) made up of special quick-drying and quick-setting binders, specially graded silica sand, synthetic resins and special admixtures developed in MAPEI’s own Research Laboratories. When mixed with water, Ultratop becomes a self-levelling compound which is easy to apply either by hand or pump in thickness from 5 to 40 mm. After setting, which takes place in only a few hours, Ultratop has a high level of compressive and flexural strength, bonds perfectly to the substrate and thanks to its special composition, dries quickly so that any further finishing coat may be applied after a very short time.
Ultratop is classified as CT – C40 – F10 – A9 – A2fl-s1 according to EN 13813:2002 Standards. CT refers to a cementitious-based product, C40 and F10 refer to the compressive strength and flexural strength, respectively, after 28 days, A9 is the Böhme abrasion-resistance coefficient and A2fl-s1 is the fire-reaction class. Around 3 days after application, Ultratop may be dry-polished using diamond grinding disks to get a shiny, reflective or similar finish on natural stone. Ultratop may also be used to make flooring with a “Terrazzo alla Veneziana” effect, in which the dry grinding process brings out the characteristics of the aggregates (colour, shape and size) to create flooring with an exclusive, original finish which is quick and easy to install.
Mapei Ultratop – Fast setting self-levelling mortar Uses
Ultratop is used internally in public and industrial buildings, for levelling and smoothing new or existing concrete and ceramic substrates in thickness from 5 to 40 mm, to make them suitable for heavy pedestrian use in shopping centres, offices, shops, showrooms and areas where rubber-wheeled vehicles are in use. Ultratop may be left as a finished floor due to its high mechanical strength and resistance to abrasion and thanks to its versatility, is suitable for numerous applications in the decorating sector of buildings for civil use.
