EGGER UK has improved its flooring portfolio with the creation of a new protective cover for EGGER Peel Clean Xtra.
Backed by the EGGER Advanced Lifetime Guarantee, Peel Clean Xtra is an enhanced moisture-resistant, P5 flooring grade chipboard covered with a new stronger and more robust foil.
It provides added underfoot surface grip and offers up to 42 days protection against the effects of site traffic, wet trades and weathering on installation.
Equally well-suited to new-build or refurbishment projects, Peel Clean Xtra is supplied as tongue and grooved panels covered with an enhanced anti-slip, easy-to-peel, polythene foil.
By design the new advanced foil has a tighter fit to board edges to help prevent lifting. Because it is more advanced in strength it is also less likely to tear under general site conditions, which protects the integrity and overall performance of the board, even when used in damp or light rain conditions.
Once the building is wind and water tight and general interior work is complete, the foil is easily peeled away to reveal a permanent and consistent waxed surface finish, which also helps to provide a moisture barrier for added protection. The foil can be easily recycled through a polythene recycling process.
The Peel Clean Xtra boards are profiled using diamond tipped tooling for greater precision and stronger, tighter fitting joints when used in conjunction with EGGER’s Joint & Joist D4 Adhesive and the Advanced Structural Fitting Method.
EGGER building specification manager, Daniel Clarke, explains: “Our new tougher foil offers extra protection from the rigours of a working site before revealing a floor that’s clean and well-presented prior to customer handover.
“Because Peel Clean Xtra is part of EGGER’s Advanced Structural Flooring System it doesn’t require the use of joint sealing tape, which can save valuable time and money at the installation stage. It also comes with our unique Lifetime guarantee, which has been specifically designed to give customers complete peace of mind on every chipboard floor they lay.”
