F Ball F74 Styccobond Polyurethane Flooring Adhesive – 7kg
STYCCOBOND F74 is a single-pack, moisture-curing polyurethane adhesive suitable for fixing floor coverings and for seaming synthetic grass carpets. It is water resistant and although it is suitable for outdoor use, it is not intended to be used as, or a substitute for a surface damp-proof membrane. It is resistant to oil and grease and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating systems.
STYCCOBOND F74 can be used for securing needle-punched / fibre-bonded carpets, synthetic grass carpets, PVC, latex, polyurethane and rubber-backed carpets, vinyl and rubber floorings.
STYCCOBOND F74 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, sound, and smooth subfloors of concrete, granolithic, sand/cement screeds and plywood. When laying impervious floor coverings onto non-absorbent subfloors e.g. vinyl flooring onto terrazzo, the subfloor must be prepared and skimmed with a minimum 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment to assist curing.

Store the adhesive in warm conditions before use to assist spreading.
Fixing floorcoverings – floorcoverings must be laid and allowed to flatten for 24 hours before securing and should be cut to fit before spreading the adhesive. Holding the trowel at an angle of 60°, spread the adhesive evenly over an area of the subfloor that can be covered within the open time of the adhesive. Lay the floorcovering immediately and roll to ensure overall adhesion.
Apply weights as necessary to ensure contact between flooring and substrate until the adhesive has set.
With deeply profiled or rough-backed floorings, it may be necessary to apply extra adhesive to ensure good contact. In such cases use a STYCCOBOND 3mm x 6mm “V” notched trowel. This will reduce the coverage rates quoted.
Seaming synthetic grass carpets – Holding the trowel at an angle of 60°, apply the adhesive to the seam backing material and immediately place the carpet in position. Press firmly into place and apply weights to ensure contact until the adhesive has set.
The open time of the adhesive is dependent on the temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor.
For any areas under question please consult the F Ball Technical team.
Do not weld vinyl floor coverings until the adhesive has fully cured. Do not apply loads or move furniture on the floorcovering until the adhesive has fully cured. External installations must be protected from rain until the adhesive has cured.
