Recommended Substrates

Will bond to all substrates listed below but refer to flooring installation system for specific installation recommendations:

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

Application Instructions

  • Condition area to be installed, adhesive, and tile at 65° F (18° C) or above for 48 hours before and 48 hours after installation.
  • Subfloor must be smooth, sound, dry, clean, and free of dirt, wax, polish, paint, and all other foreign matter which may interfere in a good bond, including curing agents and sealers.
  • Always run a moisture and alkali test over concrete on any grade level or any other substrate over on- or below-grade concrete. For accurate results, curing agents must be removed in areas where tests will be run. Calcium Chloride test results should not exceed 5 pounds/1000 sq ft/24 hours, relative humidity in-situ probe results should not exceed 80%. Alkali readings should be 5 to 9.
  • Stir any liquid on the surface into the adhesive and full spread using the recommended trowel notching.
  • Allow adhesive to set open until dry to the touch, approximately 30 to 60 minutes. When dry to the touch, the adhesive will be tacky with no transfer to fingers.
  • Install and fit all tile within 18 hours. Working time will vary based on job conditions, substrate, temperature and humidity.
  • Most resilient commercial tile does not need to be rolled upon completion of the installation. However, residential tile and certain specialty tile must be rolled – refer to Tile Installation System for recommendations.
  • Remove wet adhesive residue using a clean, white cloth dampened with soapy water. Use mineral spirits for dried adhesive residue carefully following warnings on container.
  • Do not wet wash or strip tile for at least five days after installation.
