Ball and Co. has been used to create a smooth subfloor surface prior to the installation of floorcoverings, as part of the refurbishment of Grade I listed building, The British Library. Rosemount Flooring UK was subcontracted to install 800m2 of flooring in a total refurbishment of the library. F.Ball’s Stopgap Fill and Prime is a cement based primer suitable for use over raised access panels and flooring grades of plywood, chipboard, MDF and OSB. It has been designed to have a thixotropic consistency, which enables joints between adjacent panels to be filled. Stopgap Fill and Prime sets rapidly and is ready to receive foot traffic in as little as 60min. Once cured, the flexible nature of the product will accommodate movement within the substrate. Kevin Roberts, project manager of Rosemount Flooring UK, said: “Stopgap Fill and Prime provided the perfect solution to filling in gaps in the subfloor during our refurbishment of the iconic British Library and we were very pleased with the end result.” www.f-ball.co.uk heat from your body, helpful for both work and leisure activities.
