LEED Credit Information – Installation Products
Will bond to all substrates listed below, but refer to the flooring installation system for specific installation recommendations:
- Concrete on (all grade levels) according to ASTM F710 and Preparation of Concrete Subfloors
- Suspended Wood and Wood Underlayments
- Existing well-bonded resilient flooring; not perimeter-bonded or cushion-backed
- Ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble and polymeric-poured floors
DO NOT USE OVER: Concrete with excessive moisture and/or alkali; existing cushion-backed resilient flooring; substrates treated with fire-retardant chemicals, fungicides, preservatives, release agents, adhesive removers, sealers, curing compounds or other incompatible treatments.
IMPORTANT: Proper substrate preparations is essential. Moisture and pH testing must be performed and documented before installation begins.
USAGE: Follow Armstrong Flooring’s installation instructions and proper adhesive application rate. All substrate preparation and testing procedures must conform to appropriate ASTM F710 guidelines and comply with Armstrong Flooring’s specification.
NOTE: It is up to the end user to determine the coverage that is appropriate for flooring type and jobsite conditions. A bond test prior to the installation will help identify the appropriate application rate, open and working time, and any potential bonding problems to the substrate or flooring. Follow Armstrong Flooring’s installation instructions and guidelines regarding adhesive application rate and methods.
SUBSTRATES: Sound and properly prepared concrete (on grade and above) and APA approved wood subflooring. Substrates must be clean and dry, free of dust, dirt, paint, wax, existing adhesives, or other contaminants including curing compounds that may interfere with the adhesive bond. Do not use on chemically cleaned substrates. Asphalt-based or cutback adhesive stains must be removed completely.
POROUS SUBSTRATES: Roll the installation in both directions with a 100 lb, 3-section roller immediately after flooring is placed and positioned.
When installing vinyl plank and tile over porous or non-porous substrates, the adhesive should be allowed to dry to the touch to prevent slippage. Loss of adhesion can result if the flooring is not installed within the 2-hour working time of the adhesive. Roll the installation in both directions with a 100 lb, 3-section roller immediately after the installation is complete.
NON-POROUS SUBSTRATES: Install vinyl tiles, and plank flooring into adhesive as it becomes dry to the touch with little or no transfer to finger. This will normally require 30–45 minutes of drying time at suggested installation temperature and humidity. Do not install flooring into wet adhesive on non-porous substrates. Roll the installation in both directions with a 100 lb, 3-section roller immediately after flooring is placed.
IMPORTANT: Do not use Armstrong S-295 as a pressure sensitive adhesive. Loss of adhesion can result if the flooring is not installed within the working time of the adhesive.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the many additives being entrained or topically coated on concrete substrates, it is critical that a bond test be performed. Some treatments will repel any sealers or adhesives. If usage instructions are not completely followed, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT.
CLEAN UP: Dry– clean, white cloth and mineral spirits Wet– clean, white cloth with neutral detergent and water
CONDITIONS: HVAC must be in operation and interior ambient air temperature and must be maintained between 65-85°F for at least 48 hours prior to, during and continuously after the testing, preparation, and final installation.
All substrate preparation and testing procedures must conform to appropriate ASTM F710 guidelines and comply with Armstrong’s specification.
IMPORTANT: Use the specified trowel and replace the trowel blade when worn to ensure proper spread rate. Adhesive application must be sufficient to achieve 100% transfer or contact of adhesive to the backing of the floor covering.
LIMITATIONS: Not for outdoor use. Cannot be used over substrates that have been chemically cleaned. A bond test MUST be performed.
DISCLAIMER: Users should determine the suitability of this information or product for their own particular purpose or application. This adhesive does not protect floor coverings from the effects of pH and moisture. Please follow Armstrong’s flooring installation instructions, paying special attention to moisture and pH limitations. Armstrong S-295 adhesive is not a moisture barrier and should not be installed/treated as such. This adhesive is not a substrate moisture sealer, does not form a protective barrier, and is only warranted to maintain an adhesive bond when used over bare concrete substrates conforming within the specified restrictions of pH readings and ASTM F2659 topical impedance testing. A functional working moisture barrier/retarder under the existing slab must be in place to use this product.
