Laticrete and Supercap Join Forces to Pump Concrete Sky High
- Jul 19, 2011
Laticrete International has entered into a partnership with Supercap to form Laticrete Supercap LLC. The entity uses high-tech pumping trucks to deliver self-leveling underlayment up to 50 stories high, making the system an innovative tool for expediting construction or remediation projects.
The service is currently available throughout North America and is an easy way for owners and general contractors to save time and money. The Supercap product is a LEED-qualified, low-alkali, self-leveling cement technology that is billed as “the next-generation slab” for capping concrete surfaces either in or outdoors.
Finished floors can be installed one to three days after application depending on the Supercap thickness, drying conditions and type of flooring used. The trucks can also pump up Supercap Fast, a cement-based product for capping interior concrete surfaces. Supercap Fast can be applied to new concrete just five days after pour, and finished floor goods can be installed 24 hours after application. Both products come with a three-year warranty.
Laticrete provides innovative tile and stone installation systems across the globe. New York-based Supercap was founded in 2001. The capping system has been poured across the United States and Canada.
