Wickes rolls out Setcrete™ floor preparation products nationwide

An extended range of Setcrete floor preparation products are now available in all Wickes branches nationwide. Representatives from Wickes quoted the demand for high performance, fast drying products in explaining the decision to stock Setcrete floor preparation products in all of its branches. Wickes will now stock Setcrete’s Rapid Set 30 and High Performance floor levelling compounds, as well as Setcrete Acrylic Primer. The products will join Setcrete’s Universal floor levelling compound, which is already available at Wickes nationwide.

Setcrete Rapid Set 30 can be used to rapidly create a perfectly smooth, durable surface before the installation of new floorcoverings. Applicable in thicknesses of 2 – 10mm in a single application, Rapid Set 30 is walk-on hard in just 30 minutes, and can be ready to receive new floorcoverings from only 45 minutes.

Setcrete High Performance is a fibre-reinforced, flexible, fast-drying floor levelling compound, designed for use over plywood, concrete and cement screed subfloors. The product is designed to level uneven subfloors quickly and easily, allowing for the installation of new floorcoverings in as little as 4 hours.

Setcrete’s Acrylic Primer is designed to promote adhesion of Setcrete floor levelling compounds to smooth absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces, and also to prevent unacceptably rapid drying of the levelling compound.

James Parkinson, Category Manager at Wickes, commented:

“Setcrete products are clearly designed with the professional tradesman in mind. By using advanced technology from the flooring industry, Setcrete are able to provide floor preparation products that not only save a great deal of time, but also produce high-quality results. We are pleased to be able to make such products more accessible to tradesmen across the country.”
