Application Guidelines

Application Directions Always follow the wood flooring manufacturers’ directions for the use of their products. Some flooring products may require less glue. Engage the tongue and groove snugly. A tapping block may be necessary. Remove excess glue from the surface while wet with a damp cloth. Make sure all excess glue is removed since dried glue on the surface will be difficult to remove. Do not install flooring at temperatures below 55°F. For additional questions, please contact Technical Service at 1.800.347.4583

Application Temperature Above 55°F.

Assembly Time After Glue Application 5 minutes (70°F./50%RH)

Method of Application Plastic bottles with fine tips.

Installation Titebond Tongue & Groove Flooring Glue can be installed using the continuous bead method. When using this method, a water-resistant joint is created. Follow the flooring manufacturers’ directions for proper positioning of the adhesive bead. Some manufacturers prefer gluing the top of the tongue and others prefer gluing of the groove. Titebond Tongue & Groove Flooring Glue is the professional installer’s choice for either method.

Cleanup Wet adhesive can be cleaned with using Titebond Adhesive Remover Cleaning Wipes or water and a damp cloth. If adhesive has dried, scrape off excess. For specific cleaning instructions, please call Franklin Technical Service at 1.800.347.4583.
