The floor was damaged and worn from use, the demolition of formerdividing walls within the space, and past efforts to level the floor. None of thosefactors changed the expectation for a smooth, even flooring installation at the endof the project.TO THERE: Debris was removed and the substrate vacuumed, followed by acoat of Schönox VD, a universal acrylic primer that increases the adhesion of theleveling compound. From there Schönox AP, the company’s synthetic gypsumself leveling compound, was poured filling imperfections and providing a smoothsubfloor.Enos Farnsworth, President of HPS NorthAmerica, Inc.HPS Schönox has just launched a newwebsite,, that many in-stallers are visiting to learn more about theproducts. “I suspect my colleagues in theindustry will make the switch to Schönoxas soon as they get the chance to see theproducts work,” said Triplett. “There’s a bet-ter way to subfloor now.”For more information, HPS Schönoxcan be reached at or visit us atCoverings Booth #7923Tiles u Pavers u Coping u Mosaics u Interior u ExteriorExcellent pricing and delivery options.
