Mohawk Group Adds Aquaflex Adhesive System to Portfolio of Project Solutions
CALHOUN, Ga. August 13, 2018— Mohawk Group now offers an industry-leading patented waterproof flooring installation system with the addition of Aquaflex® M100Plus. Aquaflex is a simple, cost-effective system of products developed specifically for commercial customers designing, upgrading or repairing installations based on concrete subfloors. “In every segment, flooring category and commercial space, Mohawk Group seeks best-in-class project solutions for our customers. We believe in constantly innovating to drive better interiors, down to the adhesives and accessories we use with our products,” said David Thoresen, senior vice president of commercial hard surface. “Aquaflex M100Plus represents the type of disruptive technology that will move the industry forward, providing a solution that will set severe moisture issues aside without the extreme cost of mitigation.” The revolutionary system consists of Aquaflex M100Plus Adhesive, a fully waterproof solution with the ability to cure underwater; Aquaflex M100Plus Patch & Skim Mix, an entirely silica-free concrete repair mix; and Aquaflex M100Plus Adhesive Remover. Mitigation procedures are often required for spaces with elevated concrete moisture, creating costly construction delays. Aquaflex M100Plus Adhesive avoids moisture mitigation completely and results in significant savings in both time and money. With this adhesive, installation takes just one day, compared to the regular three-day turnaround time for a traditional mitigation program. Virtually any Mohawk Group branded enhanced resilient tile (LVT) flooring can be installed on top of Aquaflex M100Plus Adhesive. The sustainable adhesive is not affected by exposure to moisture of any RH level; therefore, no moisture testing is required. Aquaflex M100Plus also includes the industry’s only bi-directional warranty, which covers moisture that comes from the concrete slab below and any topical moisture from above. As part of Mohawk Group’s ongoing commitment to better project solutions, the Aquaflex system complements a breadth of hard surface offerings designed to address the unique challenges and opportunities in commercial spaces.
