Fassa Bortolo System for Laying Floor and Wall Coverings
“Green” solutions for the best technical and aesthetic results
Fassa Bortolo’s mission is to create building quality while safeguarding the environment at all times, proposing the market a wide range of Integrated Systems, advanced products and high-quality services, giving added value to new constructions as well as renovations and redevelopments.
Innovation is a fundamental element in being able to stay at the cutting-edge: the company’s Research Centre “transforms into reality” its vision of the future, through advanced design, innovative techniques and the development of integrated Systems for building, perfectly meeting all the latest demands of the construction industry. The System for Laying Floor and Wall Coverings is just one example of this, with a vast range of solutions in four areas of application: substrates, adhesives, waterproofing and grouts. A global and integrated approach that has the exclusive advantage of offering the market a single source for any type of building work, both new constructions and restorations, always guaranteeing a high quality result.
The System for Laying Floor and Wall Coverings reflects the focus on bio-sustainability and environmental impact that have always formed the basis of Fassa Bortolo’s philosophy. The company is in fact a member of GBC Italia (Green Building Council) and has recently established an important partnership with CasaClima.
The products making up the System meet the strict LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) bio building criteria for certifying environmentally sustainable buildings, both as regards energy usage and consumption of environmental resources during construction. Some products in the System have also obtained GEV EMICODE certification, a voluntary mark relating to emissions of volatile and semi volatile organic compounds (VOC and SVOC) issued by GEV, (Gemeinschaft Emissionskontrollierte Verlegewerkstoffe, Klebstoffe und Bauprodukte). Significant attention is paid to the use of recycled raw materials, without compromising on the products’ technical and aesthetic qualities. Through its extensive Italian network of manufacturing plants and sales offices, the company can distribute “zero mile” adhesives, helping reduce transport pollution, exhaust gas emissions and waste due to used tyre disposal.
The range of products for substrates is completed by specific non-shrink products for both flooring and repairing vertical walls; the AQUAZIP waterproofing range has been extended to include Aquazip ADV for more advanced applications, Aquazip ONE one-component powder, and Aquazip RDY, ready to use.
The offering of adhesives comes in an extremely technical and complete range for all types of coverings and floors. Worth highlighting are the specific products for plasterboard (an area in which Fassa Bortolo is a leader with its GYPSOTECH® System).
Other news concerns our solutions for filling and sealing joints, with innovative, highly-workable epoxy-based products that are easy to clean and ensure a very attractive finish: indeed, they can actually be considered “part of the furniture”. To enhance your surfaces even more, the line is completed by the GLITTER LUXOR for BLUCOLORS finish, supplied in 3 different shades (gold, silver and pearl), to achieve amazing chromatic and decorative effects.
The line of cement-based stuccos has also been updated with the latest fashion colours.
Finally, completing the System is a wide range of specific accessories and equipment to help installers in their work. To ensure best results, Fassa organises specific training courses, with theoretical presentations and practical demonstrations on how to use the products; moreover, the company provides an extensive consulting and technical service.
