Tranquility Ultra Underlayment



VINYL PLANK UNDERLAYMENT

ADVANTAGES

  • TRANQUILITYTM is made with high-density polyurethane foam using rapidly renewable resources (soybean polyols and vegetable oils).
  • Suitable for floating, glue down, LVT and vinyl plank flooring, as well as radiant heat flooring systems.
  • New revolutionary moisture barrier film for the best bond strength, durability and moisture protection up to 7 lbs. of pressure. In geographic areas where concrete subfloors are subject to excessive moisture, a calcium chloride moisture test is required. Vapor emission readings in excess of 7 lbs. per 1,000 square feet in 24 hrs. will require additional protection such as concrete sealant or polyethylene sheeting.
  • Contains Ultra-Fresh, an antimicrobial protection that resists mold and mildew.
  • CrushprufTM technology resists indentation that enables your floors to perform to its fullest potential and last a lifetime.
  • Eliminates minor subfloor imperfections.
  • Offers the industry's best limited lifetime warranty.
  • This product exceeds ASTM test for compression strength required for some vinyl plank manufacturers.

APPROVED SUBSTRATES

  • Dry, completely cured concrete (at least 14 days old with HVAC operating)
