Proflow – Kerakoll’s Complete Smoothing Compound Range

Proflow – Kerakoll’s Complete Smoothing Compound Range

Tilemaster Adhesives was known in the flooring industry for its smoothing compounds, and Proflow is one of the company’s most popular products. Kerakoll has built on this heritage with the introduction of the Proflow range of smoothing compounds. 

With the new range Kerakoll has taken the best of the Tilemaster collection, and redeveloped it to be more environmentally friendly with the addition of the GreenBuilding rating and the fact that the VOC emissions of all products are as low as technically feasible without compromising performance. June saw a new improved version LevelFlex+ FINISH, renamed Proflow Finish, a new Moisture Vapour Suppressant product, Proflow MVS, and Proflow Rapid, an ultra-rapid-setting double-component compound. 

Proflow Finish is the flooring contractor’s dream product: a true all rounder, moisture tolerant and suitable for use in any installation, on any substrate and with any type of resilient flooring at depths of up to 60mm. It is a single component self-smoothing compound with a free flowing formulation, a 30-minute wet edge time, and is able to accept foot traffic and floorcoverings after 3.5 hours. It has an EC1-Plus GEV Emicode rating. 

Proflow MVS’ revolutionary formula has a built in moisture vapour suppressant barrier that is effective up to 95% RH, removing the need for a DPM, and thus condensing a potential three-product application into one single application. The double-component product is free flowing, with excellent self-smoothing properties giving a flawless surface finish. It is a rapid-setting product allowing foot traffic in 90 minutes and the installation of resilient flooring in four hours, but still offers a wet edge time of 30 minutes.

Proflow Rapid is the new incarnation of Super Flow 30, a moisture-tolerant smoothing compound that can be used below a DPM and is perfect for fast track installations where time really is at a premium. It allows foot traffic after 30 minutes, and the installation of resilient floorcoverings after 60 minutes.

Wednesday 3 July will see the final two products of the collection launched: Proflow Smooth, and Proflow Trade.

Proflow Smooth is the reincarnation of the original Proflow. This self-smoothing compound has a unique free flowing formulation that fills and smooths any substrate imperfections and creates a flawless surface finish effortlessly. With a working and wet edge time of 30 minutes, and its ability to accept foot traffic after only 90 minutes and floorcoverings after just 3.5 hours, this double-component compound gives the best blend of extended working times and rapid installation. It is moisture tolerant, so can be used to pre-smooth green or wet cement-based screeds prior to applying a surface epoxy damp proof membrane.

Proflow Trade is the new version of Trade Flow. This universal self-smoothing compound can be used in thicknesses from 3 to 8 mm, on most substrates including metal and fibre-cement panels. It accepts foot traffic after four hours and resilient floorcoverings can be installed after 12 hours.
