Mapetherm Flex RP is a ready-mixed, cement-free, flexible skimming base coat and, with the addition of BioBlock® technology, is resistant to the biological attack of mould and algae.
Developed by Mapei’s worldwide Research & Development laboratories, it is excellent for repairing deteriorated insulating render systems and/or micro-cracked render to form reinforced skim coats on insulating panels and thermal insulation systems.
Its versatile characteristics have been successfully used to carry out repair and maintenance work that is efficient and has an aesthetically pleasing finish. Mapetherm Flex RP adheres perfectly to insulating panels, old and new render, organic and cementitious skimming compounds, and paints and coatings, providing they are sound, well-bonded to the substrate and do not suffer from rising damp. A high impact strength also ensures that impact loads are dissipated by its elastic structure.
Mapetherm Flex RP contains Ultralite technology – a Mapei certification that characterises lightweight adhesives by their low density which are made lighter by adding tiny, lightweight glass beads. It is also Mapei certified as Fast Track Ready, an exclusive Mapei technology that identifies products for rapid installation of wall and floor coverings. Mapetherm Flex RP can also be tinted using the Mapei ColorMap automatic colouring system.
