CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOUND CONTROL MAT Hacker Industries, Inc. offers five different Sound Control Mats to meet demanding sound-attenuating reqirements for impact nose. Over 8 million of square feet of FIRM-FILL® SCM and Hacker Sound Mats have been installed in projects thorughout North America. That number is expected to double in just three years time as the demand for better IIC ratings continues to increase.

FIRM-FILL® SCM-125: a 1/8" (3mm) sound control mat, is engineered to limit impact sound transmission in multi-family construction. Ideal for when the gypsum concrete pour is not a standard thickness, FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is topped with a minimum of 3/4" (19mm) of a FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Underlayment to create an effective low profile sound control system.

FIRM-FILL® SCM-250: is a 1/4" (6mm), random filament, corrugated, "U" groove core sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. When used in conjunction with a 1" FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concrete topping, the combined system has been tested to achieve a "Light Commercial" rating from the Tile Council of North America.

FIRM-FILL® SCM-400: is a 3/8" (10mm) sound mat is efficiently engineered to limit sound transmission in multifamily construction. Ideal for when the gypsum concrete pour is not a standard thickness.

FIRM-FILL® SCM-750: is a 3/4" (19mm) sound mat, that helps create sound resistant floors with the high IIC and STC level required by IBC 2009. It is a cost-effective way to address higher IIC requirements.

Hacker Sound Mat II: an innovative sound mat is composed of 92 percent recycled rubber and is designed to provide a quieter environment and meet the most demanding project specifications.

Product Description FIRM-FILL® 2010+ is designed for use over wood or concrete subfloors. It stiffens the subfloor to eliminate squeaks and nail pops. With additional surface hardness, FIRM-FILL® 2010+ provides compressive strengths from 2000 to 3200 psi (13.8 to 22 MPa). Depending on the compressive strength, it may be installed before or after drywall. To keep project on schedule and on budget, Licensed Applicators may install over 25,000 ft² of FIRM-FILL® 2010+ in one day. FIRM-FILL® 2010+ is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. Installed at a minimum of 3/4” thick, the underlayment weighs approximately 7.2 lb/ft² (35.2 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 105-115 pcf. For new construction, FIRM-FILL® 2010+ is a cost-effective way to create a smooth, hard surface for finished floor coverings while offering exceptional compressive strengths matched with superior acoustical control and fire resistance properties. To achieve additional sound isolation, use FIRM-FILL® 2010+ with either a FIRM-FILL® SCM sound control mat or Hacker Sound Mat.

Limitations • Do not use FIRM-FILL® 2010+ in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood may have more restrictive deflection limits. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® 2010+ shall exceed 3” in depth. • FIRM-FILL® 2010+ is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies.

SUBMITTAL FORM Installation Before, during and after the installation of FIRM-FILL® 2010+, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® 2010+, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Concrete subfloors shall be 28 days or older. For on-grade applications over concrete, measure the Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER) per ASTM F1869. MVER shall not exceed 3 lb/1000 ft² per 24 hours. Prime wood subfloors with Hacker Floor Primer per recommended specifications before installing underlayment. Adequate ventilation shall be provided by the General Contractor (GC) to ensure proper drying of FIRMFILL® 2010+. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation. Depending on thickness and drying conditions, the underlayment should dry within 8 to 14 days. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and information contained on Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information concerning drying of this product. After installation, temporary wood planking shall be placed by the GC wherever the floor underlayment will be subject to wheeled or concentrated loads. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® 2010+ is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for recommended procedures to test for dryness and acceptable levels of moisture.

High-strength underlayment for use over wood or concrete subfloors Install over a FIRM-FILL® SCM or Hacker Sound Mat for additional sound isolation Contributes to excellent STC and IIC ratings UL designs for 1 to 3 hour fire ratings Lightweight and crack-resistant Reduced amount of water for accelerated drying time Contributes points to LEED® project certification Creates a flat, durable, non-structural underlayment surface for finished floor coverings Installed only by trained Licensed Applicators across North America

Product Description FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic offers an innovative formulation that decreases the amount of water used while enhancing the rock-solid floor strength. The product’s rapid set time allows light foot traffic in 90 minutes. This versatile, high quality floor underlayment is widely used as an alternative to lightweight concrete in multifamily, light commercial and hospitality projects. FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic provides compressive strengths from 2000 to 3300 psi (13.8 to 22.8 MPa). Depending on compressive strength, it can be installed before or after drywall. To help keep projects on schedule and on budget, Licensed Applicators can install over 25,000 ft² of FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic in one day. FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. Installed at a minimum of 3/4” thick, the underlayment weighs approximately 7.6 lb/ft² (37 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 107-120 pcf. For new construction, FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic is a cost-efficient way to maximize sound control and create a smooth, flat and high-strength surface for finished floor coverings. To achieve additional sound isolation, use FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic with either a FIRM-FILL® SCM sound control mat or Hacker Sound Mat.

Limitations • Do not use FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® 3310+ shall exceed 3” in depth. • FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies.

SUBMITTAL FORM Installation Before, during and after the installation of FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Concrete subfloors shall be 28 days or older. For on-grade applications over concrete, measure the Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER) per ASTM F1869. MVER shall not exceed 3 lb/1000 ft² per 24 hours. Prime wood subfloors with Hacker Floor Primer per recommended specifications before installing underlayment. Adequate ventilation shall be provided by the General Contractor (GC) to ensure proper drying of FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation. Depending on thickness and drying conditions, the underlayment should dry within 8 to 14 days. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and information contained on Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information concerning drying of this product. After installation, temporary wood planking shall be placed by the GC wherever the floor underlayment will be subject to wheeled or concentrated loads. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® 3310 Classic is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for recommended procedures to test for dryness and acceptable levels of moisture. Reference Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. This guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.

High-strength underlayment for use over wood or concrete subfloors Install over a FIRM-FILL® SCM or Hacker Sound Mat for additional sound isolation Contributes to excellent STC and IIC ratings UL fire-rated designs for 1 to 3 hour fire ratings Lightweight and crack-resistant Reduced amount of water for accelerated drying time Contributes points to LEED® project certification Creates a flat, durable, non-structural underlayment surface for finished floor coverings Installed only by trained Licensed Applicators across North America

Product Description Specifically designed for new, thin laminates, this product’s rapid set time allows light foot traffic in 90 minutes. This versatile, high quality floor underlayment is widely used as an alternative to lightweight concrete in multi-family, light commercial and hospitality projects. FIRM-FILL® 3310+ provides compressive strengths from 3000 to 3900 psi (20.6 to 26.8 MPa). Depending on compressive strength, it can be installed before or after drywall. To help keep projects on schedule and on budget, Licensed Applicators can install over 25,000 ft² of FIRM-FILL® 3310+ in one day. FIRM-FILL® 3310+ is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. Installed at a minimum of 3/4” thick, the underlayment weighs approximately 7.6 lb/ft² (37 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 107-120 pcf. For new construction, FIRM-FILL® 3310+ is a cost-efficient way to maximize sound control and create a smooth, flat and high-strength surface for finished floor coverings. To achieve additional sound isolation, use FIRMFILL® 3310+ with either a FIRM-FILL® SCM or Hacker Sound Mat.

Limitations • Do not use FIRM-FILL® 3310+ in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® 3310+ shall exceed 3” in depth. • FIRM-FILL® 3310+ is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies. 40

Product Description FIRM-FILL® High Strength is designed to repair and resurface cracked, damaged and out-of-level concrete subfloors in renovation and repair projects. FIRM-FILL® High Strength sets in 90 minutes and is suitable for light foot traffic the following day. Installed from featheredge to 3-1/2”, FIRM-FILL® High Strength provides exceptional strength and durability. FIRM-FILL® High Strength provides compressive strengths from 2500 to 3800 psi (17.2 to 26.2 MPa). FIRM-FILL® High Strength is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. At 3/4” (19 mm) thick, the underlayment weighs approximately 7.7 lb/ft² (37.6 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 120-125 pcf. For new construction or renovation, FIRM-FILL® High Strength provides a cost-efficient way to create a fireresistant, sound-rated and smooth floor surface. FIRM-FILL® High Strength is suitable for a variety of finished floor coverings. For additional sound control, specify FIRM-FILL® High Strength with a FIRM-FILL® SCM or Hacker Sound Control Mat.

Limitations • Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® High Strength shall exceed 3-1/2” (89 mm) in depth. • FIRM-FILL® High Strength is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies.

Product Description FIRM-FILL® 4010+ is a gypsum floor underlayment from Hacker Industries, Inc. that is designed for thincapping concrete in new construction or renovation projects with no shot blasting required. FIRM-FILL® 4010+ sets in 90 minutes and is suitable for light foot traffic the following day. Installed from featheredge to 2”, FIRMFILL® 4010+ is widely used over existing concrete, precast, and damaged or cracked lightweight concrete to create a strong, flat surface for finished floor coverings. FIRM-FILL® 4010+ provides compressive strengths from 4000 to 5200 psi (27.5 to 35.9 MPa). FIRM-FILL® 4010+ is mixed on the job site with local washed plaster, masonry or silica sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. At 1/2” thick, the underlayment weighs approximately 5.3 lb/ft² (25.8 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 125-130 pcf. For new construction or renovation, FIRM-FILL® 4010+ is a cost-efficient way to maximize sound control and provide fire ratings, and is suitable for a variety of finished floor coverings.

Limitations • Do not use FIRM-FILL® 4010+ in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® 4010+ shall exceed 1-1/2” in depth. • FIRM-FILL® 4010+ is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies. 62

SUBMITTAL FORM

GYPSUM CONCRETE GYPSE DE BÉTON

Installation Before, during and after the installation of FIRM-FILL® 4010+, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® 4010+, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/720), broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Adequate ventilation shall be provided by the General Contractor (GC) to ensure proper drying of FIRMFILL® 4010+. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation. Depending on thickness and drying conditions, the underlayment should dry within 7 to 12 days. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and information contained on Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information concerning drying of this product. Cracks in the existing concrete subfloor must be inspected to determine if the crack is due to typical concrete shrinkage, or if it is a result of a structural movement. In the case of the latter, remediation of the crack must be addressed lest the crack eventually telegraph through Hacker Industries, Inc. FIRM-FILL® 4010+. Repair all existing cracks in concrete substrate to minimize and control their ability to telegraph through the layer of Hacker Industries, Inc. FIRM-FILL® 4010+. Remove all weakened concrete along the length of the cracks by chiseling or other suitable means. Remove accumulated dust and debris from the crack cavities using a vacuum, or other suitable means. Various cracks present in the concrete subfloor, including shrinkage cracks, must be filled with a suitable commercially available crack-fill epoxy adhesive designed for concrete flooring applications. To ensure superior resistance to crack growth, use injection epoxy crack-repair techniques per industry guidelines to repair cracks that are active or deep. Note that repair of existing cracks in the concrete subfloor only subdues, but does not completely prevent their ability to telegraph through Hacker Industries, Inc. FIRM-FILL® 4010+ floor underlayment. Growth of existing cracks or formation of new cracks in the concrete subfloor may lead to cracks telegraphing through Hacker Industries, Inc. FIRM-FILL® 4010+ floor underlayment. Respect existing expansion and control joints. Concrete subfloors receiving a Hacker Industries, Inc. FIRM-FILL® 4010+ underlayment must be cured properly (generally for a minimum of 28 days) prior to the underlayment installation. For on- or above- grade applications on concrete subfloors or concrete planks, measure the Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER) using ASTM F1869. MVER should be below 3 lbs./1000 ft.2/24 hrs. Concrete subfloors should be treated properly with Hacker Industries, Inc. Concrete Primer according to its written recommendations, “Guidelines for Finished Floor Coverings for floor-covering installation.“ After installation, temporary wood planking shall be placed by the GC wherever the floor underlayment will be subject to wheeled or concentrated loads.

Product Description FIRM-FILL® CMD is designed for use in cold-formed steel frame buildings with a corrugated steel deck. FIRMFILL® CMD provides minimum compressive strengths of 3500 psi (24.1 MPa). FIRM-FILL® CMD is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. A 1” (25 mm) application is required above the top of the flutes. Maximum thickness is 2“ (51 mm) in one lift. For residential and light commercial construction, FIRM-FILL® CMD is a cost-effective method to build higher and faster. FIRM-FILL® CMD creates a smooth, hard surface for finished floor coverings, while offering exceptional compressive strengths matched with superior acoustical control and fire resistance properties. For added sound isolation, use FIRM-FILL® CMD with a FIRM-FILL® SCM or Hacker Sound Mat.

Limitations When considering the use of this floor system, a licensed structural engineer shall first evaluate the building loads and framing system to determine whether this corrugated steel deck system is appropriate. FIRM-FILL® CMD is not a structural element and does not provide any contribution to the floor diaphragm. The corrugated steel deck shall be designed to address all floor diaphragm requirements and must conform to the Steel Deck Institute Standards. Reference SDI Manual of Construction with Steel Deck. For additional requirements, contact Hacker Industries, Inc. • Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • No single application of FIRM-FILL® CMD shall exceed 2” in depth. • FIRM-FILL® CMD is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies. 74

SUBMITTAL FORM Installation Before, during and after the installation of FIRM-FILL® CMD, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® CMD, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360) and be broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, parrafin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Prime the corrugated steel deck with FIRM-FILL® CMD Primer per recommended specifications before installing underlayment. Adequate ventilation shall be provided by the General Contractor (GC) to ensure proper drying of FIRM-FILL® CMD. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation. Depending on thickness and drying conditions, the underlayment should dry within 10 to 14 days. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and information contained on Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information concerning drying of this product. After installation, temporary wood planking shall be placed by the GC wherever the floor underlayment will be subject to wheeled or concentrated loads. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® CMD is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for recommended procedures to test for dryness and acceptable levels of moisture.

Product Description GYP-SPAN® Radiant is specially formulated for use over hot water tubes or electric cables in radiant heat systems. The non-shrinking nature of GYP-SPAN® Radiant helps to lock radiant heat tubes in place, preventing noise and chafing, and evenly distributing the heat throughout the subfloor. GYP-SPAN® Radiant provides compressive strengths from 2000-3200 psi (13.8 to 22 MPa). Installed after drywall. GYP-SPAN® Radiant accepts virtually all types of floor coverings such as ceramic tile, carpeting and wood. GYP-SPAN® Radiant is mixed on the job site with local sand (per ASTM C33) and water to create a lightweight slurry. Installed at a minimum of 3/4” (19 mm) thick above the top of the tubes (total thickness of 1-1/2” [38 mm]), the underlayment weighs approximately 14.6 lb/ft² (71.3 kg/m²) with a dry density range of 105-120 pcf. For residential projects, GYP-SPAN® Radiant is a cost-efficient way to create a warm, flat and high-strength surface for finished floor coverings. To achieve additional sound isolation, use GYP-SPAN® Radiant with a Hacker Industries, Inc. sound mat.

Limitations • Do not use GYP-SPAN® Radiant in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used as a wear surface; must be covered by a finished floor covering. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for recommendations. • If installed above a crawl space, subfloor must be protected by a vapor barrier. • No single application of GYP-SPAN® Radiant shall exceed 3” (76 mm) in depth. • GYP-SPAN® Radiant is one component of an effective sound and fire control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to assure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies.

Product Description FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is a nominal 1/8” (3 mm), random filament, corrugated “U”- groove core sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. Designed for critical applications in which FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete will be utilized. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 prevents liquid moisture from passing through to the substrate, an essential quality for wood frame construction. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is a Class A fire-rated product. Use in conjunction with a minimum 3/4” FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping.

Limitations • Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used without a FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for their recommendations. • Do not use mechanical fasteners to install FIRM-FILL® SCM-125, as mechanical fasteners conduct impact sound, reducing acoustical isolation. • FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 shall be installed with a perimeter isolation strip. • FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is one component of an effective sound attenuation control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to ensure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory and/or field conditions and reflected results are applicable only to those specific assemblies.

Installation Before, during and after installation, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to installation, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants.

SUBMITTAL FORM INSTALLATION(cont.) Attach perimeter isolation strip or approved alternative to the walls, conduit, flanges, ballasts, etc. in order to isolate or break the vibration transmission path between the floor and wall. Reinforcement is recommended in doorways and other high traffic or transition areas. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the blue mesh down and white fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier. Alternately, the FIRM-FILL® SCM125 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRM-FILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25” (6 mm). FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRMFILL® SCM-125 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for acceptable levels of moisture and recommended procedures to test for dryness. Reference Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. This guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.

PART II. PRODUCTS 2.1

Product Description

FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is a nominal 1/8” (3 mm), random filament, corrugated “U”- groove core sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. Designed for critical applications in which FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete will be utilized. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 prevents liquid moisture from passing through to the substrate, an essential quality for wood frame construction. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is a Class A fire-rated product. Use with a minimum 3/4” FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping. 2.2

Product Limitations

A.

Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely.

B.

Shall not be used without a FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping.

C.

Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for their recommendations.

D.

Do not use mechanical fasteners to install FIRM-FILL® SCM-125, as mechanical fasteners conduct impact sound, reducing acoustical isolation.

E. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 shall be installed with a perimeter isolation strip.

F.

100

FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is one component of an effective sound attenuation control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to ensure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory or field conditions and reflect results applicable only to those specific assemblies.

RECOMMENDED SPECIFICATIONS (CONT.)

PART III. PREPARATION 3.1

Condition of Subfloor

A.

Subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom clean, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Concrete substrate shall be 28 days or older.

B.

Leak prevention: All cracks and voids should be filled with a quick-setting patching or taping compound or equal where leakage may occur.

C.

Before installation, the GC shall inspect and approve the condition of the subfloor and test the existing subfloor for moisture.

3.2

Application

A.

Scheduling: Installation of FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 shall not begin until other trades are finished in the area. Protect FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 from trade traffic prior to application of FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concretes.

B.

Installation

1. Perimeter Isolation Strip shall be properly installed in an “L” formation around areas where FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 will be installed, including any openings in the subfloor installation.

2. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the blue mesh down and white/blue fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier that was previously installed around the perimeter of the floor; the gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25“ (6 mm). Alternately, the FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRM-FILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25” (6 mm). 3. FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in that position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. 3.3

Application of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes

A.

Taping and seams of FIRM-FILL® SCM-125 shall be checked and approved by the GC prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concretes.

B.

Install FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concretes at a minimum thickness of 3/4” (19 mm).

C.

Protection: After installation, temporary wooden planking shall be placed by GC wherever the underlayment is subject to wheeled loads.

Hacker Industries, Inc. | Architect Binder | Firm-Fill® SCM-125 | © 2017

101


D.

Drying: The GC shall provide continuous ventilation and adequate heat to rapidly remove moisture from the area until the underlayment is dry. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation and heat. Do not install finished floor coverings until the FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete has been tested for dryness. Consult flooring contractor for recommended procedures to test for acceptable moisture levels. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information.

3.4

Preparation for Installation of Floor Coverings

A.

Sealing: Any areas where the underlayment surface has been damaged shall be cleaned and sealed. The floor covering manufacturer’s specificatiions and requirements suspersede these recommendations.

B.

Floor Covering Procedures: See Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. The guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.

C.

After finished floor covering is installed, trim the perimeter isolation strip below the finished flooring. Fill the groove with a bead of acoustical sealant or elastomeric sealant. Do not allow ceramic tile, grout or FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete to come in contact with the wall. Shim the molding above the finished floor covering and caulk with an acoustical sealant.

3.5

PART II. PRODUCTS 2.1

Product Description

FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 is a nominal 1/4” (6 mm), random filament, corrugated “U”- groove core sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. Designed for critical applications in which FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete will be utilized. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 prevents liquid moisture from passing through to the substrate, an essential quality for wood frame construction. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 is a Class A fire-rated product. Use with a minimum 1” FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping. 2.2

Product Limitations

A.

Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely.

B.

Shall not be used without a FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping.

C.

Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for their recommendations.

D.

Do not use mechanical fasteners to install FIRM-FILL® SCM-250, as mechanical fasteners conduct impact sound, reducing acoustical isolation.

E. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 shall be installed with a perimeter isolation strip.

F. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 is one component of an effective sound attenuation control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to ensure the ultimate design performance.

RECOMMENDED SPECIFICATIONS (CONT.)

PART III. PREPARATION 3.1

Condition of Subfloor

A.

Subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom clean, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Concrete substrate shall be 28 days or older.

B.

Leak prevention: All cracks and voids should be filled with a quick-setting patching or taping compound or equal where leakage may occur.

C.

Before installation, the GC shall inspect and approve the condition of the subfloor and test the existing subfloor for moisture.

3.2

Application

A.

Scheduling

1. Installation of FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 shall not begin until other trades are finished in the area. Protect FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 from trade traffic prior to application of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes.

Installation

B.

1. Perimeter Isolation Strip shall be properly installed in an “L” formation around areas where FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 will be installed, including any openings in the subfloor installation.

2. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the red mesh down and white/red fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier that was previously installed around the perimeter of the floor; the gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25“ (6 mm). Alternately, the FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRM-FILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall should (6 mm). not exceed 0.25” 3. FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in that position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. 3.3

Application of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes

A.

Taping and seams of FIRM-FILL® SCM-250 shall be checked and approved by the GC prior to the installation of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes.

B.

Install FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes at a minimum thickness of 1”.

C.

Protection: After installation, temporary wooden planking shall be placed by GC wherever the underlayment is subject to wheeled loads.

RECOMMENDED SPECIFICATIONS (CONT.)

D.

Drying: The GC shall provide continuous ventilation and adequate heat to rapidly remove moisture from the area until the underlayment is dry. If necessary, the GC shall provide mechanical ventilation and heat. Do not install finished floor coverings until the FIRMFILL® Brand Gypsum Concrete has been tested for dryness. Consult flooring contractor for recommended procedures to test for acceptable moisture levels. To avoid potential problems during the drying process, the GC shall consult Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Drying Conditions Flyer and Hacker Industries, Inc.’s website for additional information.

3.4

Preparation for Installation of Floor Coverings

A.

Sealing: Any areas where the underlayment surface has been damaged shall be cleaned and sealed. The floor covering manufacturer’s specificatiions and requirements suspersede these recommendations.

B.

Floor Covering Procedures: See Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. The guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.

C.

After finished floor covering is installed, trim the perimeter isolation strip below the finished flooring. Fill the groove with a bead of acoustical sealant or elastomeric sealant. Do not allow ceramic tile, grout or FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concrete to come in contact with the wall. Shim the molding above the finished floor covering and caulk with an acoustical sealant.

3.5 Field Quality Control Sound tests on underlayment systems have been conducted under laboratory and field conditions. Contact Hacker Industries, Inc. at (800) 642-3455 for information.

SUBMITTAL FORM INSTALLATION(cont.) Attach perimeter isolation strip or approved alternative to the walls, conduit, flanges, ballasts, etc. in order to isolate or break the vibration transmission path between the floor and wall. Reinforcement is recommended in doorways and other high traffic or transition areas. FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the purple mesh down and white/purple fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier. Alternately, the FIRMFILL® SCM-400 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRMFILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall shall not exceed 0.25” (6 mm). FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRMFILL® SCM-400 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for acceptable levels of moisture and recommended procedures to test for dryness. Reference Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. This guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.

RECOMMENDED SPECIFICATIONS (CONT.)

PART III. PREPARATION 3.1

Condition of Subfloor

A.

Subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom clean, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Concrete substrate shall be 28 days or older.

B.

Leak prevention: All cracks and voids should be filled with a quick-setting patching or taping compound or equal where leakage may occur.

C.

Before installation, the GC shall inspect and approve the condition of the subfloor and test the existing subfloor for moisture.

3.2

Application

A.

Scheduling

1. Installation of FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 shall not begin until other trades are finished in the area. Protect FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 from trade traffic prior to application of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes.

Installation

B.

1. Perimeter Isolation Strip shall be properly installed in an “L” formation around areas where FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 will be installed, including any openings in the subfloor installation.

2. FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the purple mesh down and white/purple fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier that was previously installed around the perimeter of the floor; the gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25“ (6 mm). Alternately, the FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRM-FILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall should not exceed 0.25” (6 mm). 3. FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRM-FILL® SCM-400 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in that position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. 3.3

Application of FIRM-FILL® Brand Gypsum Concretes

Product Description FIRM-FILL® SCM-750 is a nominal 3/4” (19 mm), entangled polymeric filament sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. Designed for critical applications in which FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete will be utilized. Use in conjunction with a minimum 1-1/2” FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping.

Limitations • Shall not be used in exterior locations, below grade or where continuous exposure to moisture is likely. • Shall not be used without a FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete topping. • Structure shall be designed so that deflection does not exceed L/360 live or dead load. Certain floor coverings, such as marble, limestone, travertine and wood, may have more restrictive deflection limits. Consult the appropriate floor covering manufacturer for their recommendations. • Do not use mechanical fasteners to install FIRM-FILL® SCM-750, as mechanical fasteners conduct impact sound, reducing acoustical isolation. • FIRM-FILL® SCM-750 shall be installed with a perimeter isolation strip. • FIRM-FILL® SCM-750 is one component of an effective sound attenuation control system. Care must be taken in the installation of all components to ensure the ultimate design performance. Published acoustical and fire system tests were conducted under controlled laboratory and/or field conditions and reflected results are applicable only to those specific assemblies.

Installation Before, during and after installation, the building must be enclosed and the temperature maintained at a minimum of 50°F (10°C). Prior to installation, the subfloor shall be structurally sound (L/360), broom cleaned, dry and free from oil, grease, paraffin, laitance, wax or other contaminants. Attach perimeter isolation strip or approved alternative to the walls, conduit, flanges, ballasts, etc. in order to isolate or break the vibration transmission path between the floor and wall. Reinforcement is recommended in doorways and other high traffic or transition areas.

SUBMITTAL FORM INSTALLATION(cont.) FIRM-FILL® SCM-750 is laid directly over the concrete, plywood or OSB subfloor, with the green mesh down and white/green fabric side up. It should be pushed up tightly to the isolation barrier. Alternately, the FIRMFILL® SCM-750 may be pushed up tightly to the gypsum wall board when the isolation barrier installed is FIRMFILL® Perimeter Isolation. The gap between the floor and wall shall not exceed 0.25” (6 mm). FIRM-FILL® SCM-750 edge must be placed adjacent to other pieces without any gap. Rolls are manufactured with the self-adhesive selvage edge folded over on the fabric top. When unrolled, the selvage edge remains in position. Starting at the base of the roll, smooth the selvage edge to the adjacent piece. If necessary, tape (duct tape or 2” [51 mm]-wide tape) the 3” (76 mm) fabric overlaps snug to the fabric on the adjoining FIRMFILL® SCM-750 strip. Tape all seams to prevent penetration into the core material during pour. Double tape seams if necessary. Finished floor coverings can be installed when the FIRM-FILL® Gypsum Concrete is completely dry. Consult flooring contractor for acceptable levels of moisture and recommended procedures to test for dryness. Reference Hacker Industries, Inc.’s Guidelines for Installing Finished Floor Coverings. This guideline is not a warranty and shall be used as a guideline only. See ASTM F2419.
