Heavy traffic areas for residential, commercial, institutional and industrial installations.
Carpets: Woven polypropylene, jute, latex unitary, foam and sponge rubber, polyurethane, hot melt, woven and hard unitary backings.
Tiles:Vinyl composition, asphalt, cork, rubber and fiberglass polyester.
Resilient Sheet Goods: Mineral, felt, paper and rubber backings.
Plywood, hardboard, association grade particleboard underlayments, felt lining, moisture and alkali free concrete and asphalt.
All substrates must be clean, dry, structurally sound, properly cured and free of dirt, oil, paint, old adhesive, wax, sealers and curing agents. Subfloor and materials are to be at least 65 °F., prior to and after installation. Concrete subfloors must be structurally sound and free of voids and cracks. Make repairs to concrete substrates to remove unsound or deteriorating areas. If needed, apply cementitious patch to any voids or cracks. Allow cementitious repair materials to cure per cementitious manufacturer’s recommendations. Lightweight concrete or gypsum-based subfloors/materials must have Titebond Concrete Primer (or equivalent) applied prior to use of adhesive. Follow directions of Titebond Concrete primer (or equivalent) before use.
For carpets: Use a 3/32" V-notch trowel for smooth and 1/8" U-notch trowel for deep textured backings, or very porous substrates. Open time is between 15 and 30 minutes to promote adhesive transfer. For hard to hold carpet or for adhering to sealed substrates, it will usually be necessary to allow extended open time until glue line becomes tacky to touch before laying goods. Employ a lightweight roller within one hour of installation.
For tile: Use a 1/16" square notch trowel. Open time is between 30 minutes and two hours. Adhesive must transfer to tile backing in order to bond. Employ a 100 pound roller within one hour of installation.
For resilient sheet goods: Use a 1/16" square notch trowel. Open time is 10 and 45 minutes. Adhesive must transfer to backing in order to bond. Immediately after installation employ a linoleum roller.
Allow adhesive to dry well before exposing installation to cleaning water. Use water to remove adhesive spots and clean tools.
*CAUTION: Do not sand, scour or abrade any material that is suspected of containing asbestos fibers. Asbestos is known to cause cancer. Federal law requires that asbestos be handled by a licensed and certified hazardous materials contractor.
