The most reliable source of adhesive recommendations available - f. Ball publish the 2009 RAG
With dozens of new and amended entries the 2009 edition of F. Ball’s Styccobond Recommended Adhesives Guide is a ‘must have’ for specifiers and contractors alike.
From a simple four page leaflet first published in 1973, the RAG has now developed into a full colour brochure that is updated and reprinted annually. With 5,169 recommendations for floorcoverings from over 200 leading manufacturers, the RAG can claim to be the most useful piece of technical literature currently available in the flooring industry.
Updating the RAG is a major task involving a full-time liaison manager and the close co-operation of floorcovering manufacturers. The process includes thorough compatibility testing of new floorcoverings, each recommendation then being approved by the floorcovering manufacturer concerned.
As a result, specifiers and contractors know they can rely on the information in the RAG because each product has been thoroughly tested.
In total some 20,000 copies of the RAG are printed and distributed each year, the publication being available as an A4 glossy brochure and a useful ‘pocket-sized’ version. A ‘live’ and interactive version is available on the F. Ball website which is continuously updated throughout the year.
