Light and moderate traffic areas for residential, commercial and institutional installations.
Resilient Sheet Goods: Vinyl laminated with mineral, felt, paper and cellulose backings.
Plywood, hardboard, association grade particleboard underlayments, and concrete (above, on or below grade in the absence of excessive moisture and alkali).
All substrates must be clean, dry, structurally sound, properly cured and free of dirt, oil, paint, old adhesive, wax, sealers and curing agents. Subfloor and materials are to be at least 65 °F., prior to and after installation. Concrete subfloors must be structurally sound and free of voids and cracks. Make repairs to concrete substrates to remove unsound or deteriorating areas. If needed, apply cementitious patch to any voids or cracks. Existing layered vinyl sheet goods are to be leveled with a cementitious agent prior to applying adhesive. Allow cementitious repair materials to cure per cementitious manufacturer’s recommendations. Lightweight concrete or gypsum-based subfloors/materials must have Titebond Concrete Primer (or equivalent) applied prior to use of adhesive. Follow directions of Titebond Concrete primer (or equivalent) before use.
Apply Franklin 730 with a 1/16" square notch trowel. Open time is between 10 and 25 minutes to promote adhesive transfer. Lift corners periodically to determine if adhesive is transferring to backing. Immediately after installation, roll with a linoleum roller, working from center to edges to expel entrapped air. For curled goods, allow adhesive to tack up to touch before laying goods in order to promote quick adhesion.
Use water to remove adhesive spots and clean tools.
*CAUTION: Do not sand, scour or abrade any material that is suspected of containing asbestos fibers. Asbestos is known to cause cancer. Federal law requires that asbestos be handled by a licensed and certified hazardous materials contractor.
Use in well ventilated area. Do not use over high alkaline concrete (over 9.0 pH) or over subfloor with excessive moisture (over 6 lbs. by calcium chloride test). Do not use directly over or under solid vinyl tile or sheet goods. KEEP FROM FREEZING.
