F. Ball and Co. Ltd., the UK’s leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives and subfloor preparation products, has launched Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS, a revolutionary development in temperature tolerant vinyl adhesives. This new pressure sensitive adhesive offers instant initial grip, combined with ultra-high bond strength, providing contractors with the familiar reassurance of high initial tack and, when fully cured, it develops the strength to hold vinyl sheets and tiles securely in place across a huge range of temperatures.
The water-based adhesive has been specifically developed for use in conditions, which are subject to extreme temperature fluctuations as low as -20°c and up to +60°c, such as conservatories or heavily glazed areas and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating systems. Extreme temperature fluctuations can cause floorcoverings to expand and contract over time, leading to tenting and gapping. The innovative formulation of Styccobond F49 limits any movement and holds the floorcovering firmly in place.
The pressure sensitive nature of the adhesive allows it to continue to build up strength following initial application. In addition, it provides an extremely strong water resistant bond, allowing it to be used in areas subject to water and high humidity, including wet rooms.
Formulated to offer easy mixing and effortless application, Styccobond F49 also has a long pot life of three hours and an open time of up to four hours, providing a generous working time for the installation of vinyl floorcoverings even in large floor areas.
Styccobond F49 can be used to secure a wide range of vinyl floorcoverings, in both tile and sheet format. It can be applied to structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, calcium sulphate, Stopgap smoothing underlayments and plywood.
Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS is available in 2kg and 5kg kits from wholesalers nationwide
