APPROVED SUBSTRATES

  • Concrete
  • Portland based underlayment
  • Properly prepared gypcrete / lightweight concrete
  • APA rated plywood
  • Terrazzo
  • Radiant heated floors
  • Single layer of approved, fully adhered resilient flooring

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

All substrates should be prepared in accordance with flooring manufacturers guidelines and/or ASTM F710. Moisture tests are required on all concrete subfloors regardless of age or elevation. Moisture testing must be performed in accordance with the most current ASTM F1869 Standard Test Method for Measuring Moisture Vapor Emission Rate of Concrete Subfloor Using Anhydrous Calcium Chloride, with levels not to exceed 12 lbs. per 24 hours per 1000 sf and ASTM F2170 Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs Using in situ Probes with readings not exceeding 99%.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Dry-Set application (porous and non-porous) spread the adhesive using the recommended trowel from the trowel selector chart. For a releasable application, allow the adhesive to flash off for 45-60 minutes until there is no transfer of adhesive to your finger. The adhesive will turn from tan to clear. Once there is no transfer, and the adhesive is clear, you can safely apply flooring for up to 12 hours. Semi-Wet and Wet-set (porous substrates ONLY) allow adhesive to flash-off for 15-30 minutes. Ambient temperature and humidity will greatly affect the dry time of the adhesive. Once the adhesive transfers to the backing of the flooring, it will no longer be releasable. BOTH APPLICATIONS require the flooring to be rolled, immediately after placement, with a 100 lb. 3-section roller. It is the responsibility of the installer to note when the adhesive is ready to receive flooring.
To ensure proper adhesion, HDPC / SPC dry back product must be installed within 3 hours of the adhesive being spread.
