F Ball F45 Styccobond Vinyl Flooring Adhesive – 15ltr
STYCCOBOND F45 is a non-staining co-polymer emulsion adhesive having particularly good resistance to PVC plasticisers that will also withstand normal wet cleaning techniques. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations.
STYCCOBOND F45 can be used for securing a wide range of highly plasticised vinyl floor and wallcoverings and PVC-backed carpets. It can also be used in conjunction with STYCCOBOND F2 Release Adhesive to provide a RELEASE BOND system.
STYCCOBOND F45 can also be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed and flooring grade plywood.
STOPGAP Waterproof Surface Membranes, sound flooring grade asphalt and other non-absorbent surfaces must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.
Product Specifications & Key Features:
- Appearance: Creamy
- Colour: White
- Available in 15ltr capacity
- Open Time (approx.): Up to 30 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor
- Coverage (approx.): 3m² per litre with a 2mm x 6mm trowel or 5m² per litre with a 1.5mm x 5mm trowel:
- 15 litres Tub = 45m² with a 2mm x 6mm trowel
- 15 litres Tub = 75m² with a 1.5mm x 5mm trowel
- 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.
Allow the adhesive to dry to a paste-like consistency then place the floor or wallcovering whilst the adhesive will transfer and the trowel marks flatten when rolled. Roll floorcoverings from end-to-end and side-to-side using a 68kg roller. 1 to 4 hours later, roll again in two directions. Press wallcoverings firmly over the whole surface and then smooth outwards from the centre using a spatula or brush, ensuring that all the air is removed and good, overall contact is achieved.
For any areas under question please consult the F Ball Technical team.
Curled floor coverings may need weighting to maintain contact with the adhesive until it has dried.
Do not weld vinyl until the adhesive has had sufficient time to develop a good bond, normally 24 hours. Do not apply loads or move furniture on the floorcovering until the adhesive has fully set
