New TEC® Wood Adhesive Keeps Pace with Wall Street

TEC® WoodPerfect™ Allows for Efficient Installation

AURORA, IL…The latest wood floor adhesive from TEC®, TEC® WoodPerfect™, enabled contractors to quickly install a sound-reducing wood floor in a Wall Street skyscraper. Flooring contractor Archetypal Imagery relied on TEC® WoodPerfect™ for the 58th floor of a 60-floor building in Manhattan’s busy financial district – providing sound reduction for what will be the headquarters of a high-end trading company.

TEC® WoodPerfect™ offers a timesaving solution that combines performance and ease of use. Its creamy formula trowels on simply with 60-90 minutes of open time for quick placement. Additionally, WoodPerfect™ has built-in, one-step moisture control and sound reduction that saved steps on this high-profile job.

With sound-reduction capabilities that contribute to Delta IIC 22dB, WoodPerfect™ reduces sound transmission through concrete subfloors in excess of building code requirements. It provides a solution for multi-level, mixed-use commercial spaces like the Wall Street skyscraper.

“The sound-reduction qualities of WoodPerfect™ saved me 40% on labor and soundproofing materials,” says Avedis Duvenjian, original co-founder of Archetypal Imagery Corporation in Bronx, NY. “TEC® manufactures innovative wood flooring adhesives, and their new WoodPerfect™ is no exception.”

The installer-friendly formula of WoodPerfectT™ offers contractors an isocyanate-free and low-odor adhesive appropriate for busy commercial job sites. Its low-VOC formula can contribute to LEED® certification.
