F Ball – F3 Styccobond Flooring Adhesive

STYCCOBOND F3 is a water-based rubber/resin flooring adhesive that has excellent wet grab with an early build-up of strength. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations.

STYCCOBOND F3 can be used for securing fibre-bonded carpets, hessian, felt, secondary latex and rubber foam-backed carpets and cork tiles up to 3.2mm thick.

F3 can also be used in conjunction with STYCCOBOND F2 Release Sealer to provide a RELEASE BOND system. In addition, F3 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, plywood, flooring grade chipboard and hardboard.

Product Specifications & Key Features:

  • Available in 15ltr5ltr and 2.5ltr capacity
  • Appearance: Viscous Liquid
  • Colour: Cream / Yellow
  • Open Time: Up to 15 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor
  • Coverage (approx.): 3 per litre using a 2mm x 6mm trowel:
    • 15 litres = 45
    • 5 litres = 15
    • 2.5 litres = 7.5
  • Note: Coverage rates will depend on the condition and absorbency of the subfloor


Holding the trowel at an angle of 60°, spread the adhesive evenly over an area of the subfloor that can be covered whilst the adhesive remains receptive and gives good transfer.

Absorbent surfaces – lay the floor covering immediately, except with cork tiles. Installing cork tiles and onto surfaces with little or no absorbency – allow the adhesive to dry partially to a paste-like consistency before laying the floor covering.

Deeply profiled or rough-backed floor coverings – it may be necessary to apply extra adhesive to ensure good contact. In such cases use a 3mm x 6mm ‘V’ notched trowel, this will reduce the coverage quoted. Some unitary-backed carpets also require a large notched trowel.

Following the floorcovering manufacturer’s laying instructions lay the floorcovering into the adhesive and press from the centre outwards to exclude air and ensure overall contact with the adhesive. Roll with the 68kg flooring roller, from end-to-end and side-to-side (on foam-backed floorcoverings use the styccobond Glyda) to ensure overall contact. 30 minutes later and when the floor has been completely covered roll or use the styccobond Glyda as necessary to ensure overall contact is maintained.

For any areas under question please consult the F Ball Technical team.


Do not apply loads or move furniture on the floorcovering until the adhesive has fully set. Do not allow the floor covering to be wet cleaned until three weeks after laying.
