Base compound designed for use where floor levels need to be raised quickly and economically, prior to the application of a suitable floor smoothing underlayment.
A base compound designed for use:
In as little as three hours, Stopgap 600 sets sufficiently to allow it to be capped with Stopgap 100, 200 or 300 self-smoothing compound prior to installation of new floorcoverings. Stopgap 600 is also suitable for use under Stopgap 800.
Stopgap 600 can also be pumped – up to 900 m² per day, dependent upon thickness applied, and manpower and equipment used.
Surfaces must be primed, using primers in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, and allowed to dry before applying the smoothing underlayment.
Deep section. Fast drying. Protein free. Thickness from 5-50 mm in one application. Suitable for hand or pump application. Low odour

Irrespective of thickness applied, once Stopgap 600 has set, typically three hours at 20°C, it must be capped with a minimum 3 mm of Stopgap 100, 200 or 300, depending on the performance characteristics required. This time will be extended with reduced temperatures, e.g approximately six hours at 10°C.
The working time of the smoothing compounds may be reduced when applied to thick sections of Stopgap 600, due to heat generated within the compound.
Allow overcoated underlayment to dry before laying floorcoverings.
– Stopgap 100:
Use for fast track applications. Inter-coat priming is not required when Stopgap 100 is applied immediately after Stopgap 600 has set. Installation of most floorcoverings can commence as soon as the surface of Stopgap 100 is hard enough not to be damaged by the adhesive trowel, typically two to three hours at 20°C.
– Stopgap 200 and 300:
When Stopgap 600 is covered with either Stopgap 200 or Stopgap 300, prime the surface with dilute P131. Under typical conditions, installation of floorcoverings should be left for a minimum of 16 hours after Stopgap 200 or Stopgap 300 has set.
