F Ball F84 Styccobond Two-Part Flooring Adhesive – 5kg
STYCCOBOND F84 is a two-part reactive epoxy adhesive designed for installing a wide range of sheet floorcoverings onto STOPGAP ISOLATOR MEMBRANE and other suitable substrates. It is ideal for use in areas that are subject to surface water and areas that are heavily trafficked. When cured the adhesive is resistant to water, oil and grease. Although it is suitable for outdoor use it is not intended to be used as, or a substitute for a waterproof surface membrane.
STYCCOBOND F84 can be used for securing a wide range of vinyl and rubber floorcoverings, sheet linoleum and textile floorcoverings.
STYCCOBOND F84 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, plywood, flooring grade chipboard and hardboard.
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 Liquid
- Colour: Light beige when mixed
- Pot Life: Up to 20 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor
- Working Time (Approx.): 1 hour at 20°C
- Cure Time: At 20°C will allow foot traffic in 12 hours and normal use after 5 days. Avoid heavy point loads until the adhesive has fully cured – approximately 7 days
- Coverage Rates (approx.): 3m² per kg using a 1.5mm x 5mm trowel or 2m² per kg using a 2mm x 6mm trowel:
- 5kg kit = 15m² with a 1.5mm x 5mm trowel
- 5kg kit = 10m² with a 2mm x 6mm trowel
- The resin and hardener are supplied in the correct quantities for mixing without measuring:
- Note: Coverage rates will depend on the condition and absorbency of the subfloor.
Floorcoverings must be laid and allowed to flatten, then cut to fit before mixing the adhesive. Holding the trowel at an angle of 60°, spread the adhesive evenly to an area that can be covered within the working time of the adhesive. Immediately lay the floor covering into the wet adhesive, pressing from the centre outwards to exclude air. Roll to ensure overall contact with the adhesive.
Under certain circumstances, it may be necessary to apply weights to some floorcoverings to maintain contact until the adhesive has set – about 12 hours.
When laying floorcoverings with deeply profiled or studded backings, apply sufficient adhesive to ensure that the voids are filled when the floorcovering is laid into the adhesive. This will result in a lower coverage figure than that quoted above. 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.
Mix only in full packs as mixing ratios are critical. Do not apply loads or move furniture on the floorcovering until the adhesive has set.
Note: At lower temperatures, less than 10°C, the adhesive becomes significantly more difficult to mix by hand and apply. To overcome this, the material should be conditioned at temperatures greater than 15°C and applied where the subfloor temperature is greater than 15°C. This will significantly ease the use of this adhesive.
