USG Corporation is showcasing its USG Durock Brand and USG Levelrock Brand self-leveling gypsum underlayments and other floor prep products and solutions in booth S11413 at World of Concrete 2015. Taking center stage at the event, aimed at commercial concrete and masonry professionals, will be the USG Durock Brand NST Concrete Finishing System, the USG and XL Brands partnership, and USG Durock Brand EcoCap, to name a few.
New product advancements, as a result of the USG and XL Brands collaborative partnership announced in 2014, led to the creation of an industry-first system that offers a 10-year limited system warranty and allows floor-covering installation over USG Durock Brand and USG Levelrock Brand gypsum underlayments in as little as four hours after applying USG Durock Brand X2 Primer-Sealer and XL Brands manufactured adhesive—saving both time and money on the job. This is just one example in which the partnership hopes to bring solution-based systems that address moisture and substrate issues, installation speed requirements and bonding and performance applications.
“We are thrilled to showcase our full line of USG Flooring Solutions at World of Concrete this year,” says Ray Kaligian, Director, Performance Flooring, at USG. “Our revolutionary portfolio is versatile, easily installed and delivers the high quality and performance our customers know and trust.”
