DriTac Unveils New Sound & Moisture Control Urethane Adhesive: DriTac SMC



For immediate release: DriTac Flooring Products has launched DriTac SMC, a new sound and moisture control urethane wood flooring adhesive. DriTac SMC is a one-component moisture cure urethane adhesive that offers major time and labor savings for the installation of hardwood flooring when a concrete moisture barrier or sound control membrane is required. Installers can now accomplish in one day, a task that normally takes two or more days to complete, dramatically increasing productivity.

Manufactured in the USA, DriTac SMC is a one-step system that is designed specifically to reduce the time and labor associated with sealing a concrete substrate, or adding a sound control membrane in preparation for a glue-down hardwood flooring installation, by combining all of the attributes of four different products in one four-gallon pail.

DriTac set the standard in 4-In-1 Total Flooring Solution Products when it introduced DriTac 1001 All-In-One in the spring of 2008. DriTac 1001 All-In-One was the very first urethane 4-In-1 Total Flooring Solution Product offered in the marketplace. Along with DriTac 1001 All-In-One, DriTac SMC is a revolutionary product that will help change the way hardwood flooring is installed.

DriTac SMC reduces moisture vapor transmission in concrete substrates from as high as 12lbs per the ASTM 1869 Calcium Chloride Method Test. It also allows up to 85% Relative Humidity (RH), per the ASTM 2179 Relative Humidity Test. DriTac SMC forms an excellent sound control membrane and is a crack suppressant as well, bridging existing cracks in concrete substrates up to 1/8" (3 mm).

This sound and moisture control urethane adhesive is VOC compliant and helps contribute to LEED point qualifications. It contains no water, cleans easily when wet and provides a strong, permanent bond. DriTac SMC is approved for use with on-grade, or above-grade concrete substrates and plywood subfloors. This product was developed to be easy to spread and is approved to install the following hardwood flooring types: exotic multi-ply engineered plank wood, multi-ply engineered plank, acrylic impregnated multi-ply engineered plank, acrylic impregnated plain-back parquet, and plain-back parquet.
