F. Ball and Co. Ltd, the UK's leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives and subfloor preparation products, has released a new version of its comprehensive Recommended Adhesives Guide (RAG) for 2015. Featuring over 5,500 up-to-date adhesive recommendations for floorcoverings, endorsed by over 200 leading international manufacturers, the RAG is the flooring industry's most trusted guide to adhesives and floorcovering compatibility.
Taking a risk on the wrong flooring adhesive can often result in costly and time consuming remedial work, or in the worst case, could necessitate starting the job all over again. By following the tested and approved recommendations contained within the RAG, flooring contractors and specifiers can be confident in their adhesive selection by being sure that they're using the right product first time.
Commenting on the new RAG, F. Ball’s Marketing Manager, Richard Harris, said: “Time is money for modern flooring contractors, with more pressure than ever before to complete flooring installations to tight deadlines. The RAG allows contractors to save time by specifying the right adhesive for each setting and floorcovering from the outset, including fast-track options for when time really matters. Contractors should always consult an up-to-date RAG before selecting an adhesive, because the materials used in floorcoverings, skirtings and covings change according to advances in manufacturing techniques."
The RAG is available free as a printed A5 book, an interactive, searchable version on the F. Ball website (http://www.f-ball.co.uk/rag.asp) and as a free app available for smartphone and tablet devices via the Apple and Google app stores. The printed edition is released annually and the digital editions are updated continuously throughout the year by F. Ball's Technical Service Department, ensuring that the latest recommendations of which adhesives are compatible with which floorcoverings are made instantly available to contractors.
All RAG adhesive recommendations are endorsed by the respective floorcovering manufacturers. By making the guide easy to access, online or in print, F. Ball assists professional flooring contractors and specifiers to easily and confidently select the most suitable flooring adhesives.
