Gyp-Crete® Floor Underlayment is one of the most efficient fire and sound control products available for multifamily construction. Standing the test of time since 1972, Gyp-Crete makes for safer, quieter living, and has become a standard in apartments, condominiums, townhomes, hotels and motels nationwide and abroad.
Gyp-Crete 2000®/3.2K gypsum floor underlayment is engineered to deliver compressive strengths up to 3,200 psi (22.1 MPa), also delivering enhanced resistance to surface abrasions and even faster drying time. It's ideal for use over wood or concrete subfloors in single family, light commercial, and multifamily construction, as well as renovation projects. Its crack-resistant surface provides a perfect base for practically any floor covering.
Therma-Floor® is a gypsum underlayment designed to pour over hot water tubes or electric heating cables. It acts as the thermal mass for any radiant floor system. Therma-Floor encases the tubes or cables in crack resistant, noncombustible gypsum. Its special formula resists breakdown to 150°F (66°C). And because it's poured only 1-1/4" (32 mm) thick, the heating system is more responsive and more comfortable.
To smooth concrete slabs, precast planks, or steel deck use Dura-Cap®. It's formulated to cap rough, pitted, cracked and out-of-level concrete. In renovation projects, it can be poured directly over old tile and adhesive residue. Dura-Cap can also be used over vinyl asbestos tile. Consult your Maxxon dealer for more details on this safe and extremely cost-effective method of abatement.
Fast drying Commercial Topping® pours from a featheredge to 3" (76 mm) in new construction or renovation projects. With compressive strengths of 4,000 psi (27.4 MPa) to 4,500 psi (31 MPa), it's the ideal underlayment to meet ASTM F 710, Preparing Concrete to Receive Resilient Flooring. It pours over VAT, VCT, terazzo or ceramic, with no shotblasting required. For the ultimate strong, smooth finish over concrete, precast, steel deck, wood frame, and old cracked lightweight concrete, specify Commercial Topping.
Level-Right®, an "eco-friendly building material", is a self-leveling, cementitious product designed for thin-capping concrete - even over old floor goods, adhesive residue and wood subfloors. Better yet, there's usually no shotblasting or scarifying required. With compressive strengths up to 5,500 psi (38 MPa), Level-Right is the perfect solution for problem floors in large projects or for small repair jobs.
Level EZ, is a polymer-modified, self-leveling cementitious underlayment that is engineered for leveling, smoothing and repairing interior gypsum and concrete substrates and non-water soluble adhesive residue on concrete prior to the installation of finished floor coverings. Level EZ provides a durable, flat, smooth floor surface with minimum labor and installation time. It can be poured or pumped when mixed with water and seeks its own level to produce a smooth, flat hard surface.
Level-Right® LDF is a revolutionary, lightweight product made from Portland cement and a proprietary expanded polystyrene foam aggregate. The aerated foam aggregate gives the cement a range of unique properties, making it perfect for deep fill applications. Level-Right® LDF is ready-mixed cement designed to be capped with a Maxxon Underlayment. Level-Right® LDF is mixed and pumped on-site with Maxxon Underlayment pumps making installation quick and easy.
