The UK’s leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives, F. Ball and Co. Ltd. has launched the 2010 edition of its comprehensive Styccobond Recommended Adhesives Guide (RAG) – the industry’s most trusted guide to adhesive and floorcovering compatibility. An essential tool for specifiers, flooring contractors and distributors, the latest RAG features over 5,500 adhesive recommendations for floorcoverings from over 200 leading manufacturers, worldwide.
F. Ball invests heavily in meticulous testing of its adhesives with every type of floorcovering listed in the RAG, culminating in the most comprehensive, reliable guide to adhesive selection in the industry, as well as guaranteeing the performance of its products. Each year, all leading floorcovering manufacturers verify the existing adhesive recommendations for their products and are invited to submit new product samples for testing with F. Ball’s range of specialist adhesives. Where required, a new adhesive may be developed for a new type of floorcovering.
The production of the RAG is managed by F. Ball Liaison Manager, Graham Wildgoose. He comments: “The RAG is the result of continual and positive relationships between F. Ball and all the major floorcovering manufacturers, and is published annually with their consent. It has been compiled and updated to assist specifiers, flooring contractors and distributors in the selection of flooring adhesives, which have been thoroughly tested and approved for particular floorcoverings. Ongoing compatibility testing of new materials also helps us to ensure that there is a specialist adhesive available for use with all floorcovering products on the market, and suitable for use in all applications.”
Available in A4 and pocket sized editions, a live and interactive version of the RAG is also available on the F. Ball website
. The live version is updated throughout the year, offering its users instant access to the most up-to-date information.
