Application Guidelines

Application Temperature:
Above 40°F. for adhesive and substrates
Service Temperature Range:
-20°F. to 120°F.
Method of Application:
For smooth and foam-backed carpets, use a 3/32" U-notch trowel. For deeply textured backings or rough substrates, use a 1/8" U-notch trowel.
Working Time:
30-40 minutes maximum
Working Surfaces:
Surface must be dry and free of any material that may deter adhesion. Cut and fit all materials before applying adhesive. Apply adhesive using the proper trowel. Allow adhesive to set up for 10-20 minutes. Lay goods into wet adhesive and seal all seams. For unitary and secondary backed goods, roll with a 75 lb. roller. For foam-backed goods, use a pushbroom or carpet tube to press goods into adhesive. Allow adhesive to dry well before exposing installations to cleaning water.
Cleanup:
Clean tools and excess adhesive with water while wet. If adhesive has dried, use mineral spirits or equivalent solvent. Follow solvent vendor's precautions when using solvents. NOTE: Test solvent in an out-of-the-way area to make sure it will not mar or attack the surface.
Limitations:
Keep from freezing. Adhesive is not freeze/thaw stable. This product should not be used between two non-porous surfaces. Materials and adhesive should be kept at 70°F. prior to application. Air temperature should be at least 40°F. during application.
