Cementitious Flooring:

Ultratop, the key product in the Ultratop System, is a rapid-setting and hardening, self levelling mortar available in 6 different colours (light grey, white, beige, red, anthracite and standard). It is easy to apply with either hand tools or a pump and is used to form abrasion-resistant floor coatings between 5 to 40mm thick. It is suitable for use in a wide variety of settings, which demonstrate the enormous versatility of this product. Amongst all the key features of the products, are undoubtedly its application, speed and rapid hardening properties. Another characteristic that encourages the use of Ultratop in Industrial settings is its very high resistance to abrasion.
