A pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive for use with the majority of vinyl floorcovering & PVC backed carpets.
- Excellent plasticiser migration resistance
- High coverage
- Suitable over most underfloor heating systems.
It may be applied to most common substrates, including concrete, cementitious screeds, flooring grade chipboard** hardboard, plywood, smoothing compounds and on non-porous substrates as a “contact bond” or “pressure-sensitive” bond. It may also be used to bond over existing resilient floorcoverings provided they are firmly bonded and all waxes and contaminants are removed.
All phases of the installation should comply with the latest editions of the following standards:
- BS 8102 Code of Practice – for protection of
building against water from the ground.
- BS 5325 Code of Practice – for the installation of
textile floor coverings.
- BS 8203 Code of Practice – for installation of
resilient floor coverings.
Ensure the sub-floor is clean, sound, dry and free from contaminants that may hinder adhesion, including surface hardeners and additives. It should have an effective damp-proof membrane and be tested in accordance with British Standards, using a properly calibrated and insulated hygrometer. A reading of 75% RH or less indicates the sub-floor is suitably dry. Mechanically remove any surface treatments or “friable” areas to expose a sound concrete base.
Repair any deep indentations in the sub-floor with a suitable patch repair product. Where floors require smoothing apply a suitable smoothing compound at a minimum of 3mm thickness. Surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned (preferable vacuumed).
Prime boards and other porous surfaces with Bond It PVA (diluted 1:4 with clean water) or other recommended primers, and allowed to dry. This is imperative with hardboard, chipboard and plywood. Ensure the floor covering manufacturer recommends the floor covering for use with the particular substrate.
It is essential to ensure good overall contact between the floor covering and adhesive, which can be achieved by rolling the adhered covering immediately in both directions with a 68Kg roller (or as recommended by the floor covering manufacturer). A second rolling is recommended after approximately 2 hours.
