(Norfolk, Nebraska – 12.18.2012) – MP Global Products, the manufacturer of earth-friendly acoustic fiber floor underlayments, recently introduced VersaWalk™ underlayment and VersaStick™ flooring adhesive for high-performing LVT floor installations that protect indoor air quality in single family homes and multi-family residences. VersaWalk™ is a VOC-free sound reduction impact isolation and insulation system engineered for maximized performance under luxury vinyl tile flooring. VersaStick™, a VOC-free and solvent free fast drying adhesive for use on subfloors and against the floor being laid.
Engineered to be odorless and non-allergenic, VersaWalk is composed of at least 94% post-industrial/pre-consumer textile fibers, scrap material otherwise destined for landfill.
The randomly air-laid filaments create a capillary effect to cushion the floor, dampen ambient sound, and absorb impact sound. VersaWalk both suppresses noise within the room and inhibits the transfer of noise into rooms below. A versatile underlayment that can be nailed, glued or floated, it is suitable for nail- or glue-down wood flooring, floating engineered wood flooring, and laminate flooring as well as for LVT.
VersaWalk also adds an R-Value of 0.50 to the floor system, creating a thermal break to the flooring assembly that helps keep floors warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
VersaWalk has an excellent “Moisture Management System” built into it. The attached 3 mil moisture barrier protects wood, laminate, and LVT floors from harmful moisture. Provided the source of water such as a leak is stopped, VersaWalk’s absorbent padding will wick water and disperse it throughout the pad until it eventually evaporates or escapes through the subfloor.”
Available in 36″ width (100 sq ft rolls), VersaWalk is suitable for use over most types of industry approved new and existing substrates including concrete, ¾” plywood and OSB and radiant heated floors operating below 85 degrees F. VersaWalk carries a Transferable Lifetime Warranty.
VersaStick is a premium “green” pressure sensitive flooring adhesive for non-grouted luxury vinyl tile/plan as well as for multi-ply engineered plank hardwood flooring over approved substrates. The environmentally friendly no-VOC, solvent free clear set adhesive spreads easily and has initial high tack and superior shear strength. It is non-flammable, water resistant, and free-thaw stable. Flooring may be installed up to 16 hours after initial drying if the area remains dust and dirt free.
