STYCCOBOND F45 is a non-staining co-polymer emulsion adhesive having particularly good resistance to PVC plasticisers that will also withstand normal wet cleaning techniques. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations.

STYCCOBOND F45 can be used for securing a wide range of highly plasticised vinyl floorcoverings and PVC backed carpets.

See the F. Ball Recommended Adhesives Guide for details of specific floorcoverings.

STYCCOBOND F45 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed and flooring grade plywood.

STOPGAP waterproof surface membranes, sound flooring grade asphalt and other non-absorbent surfaces must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.

For details on other subfloors, contact our Technical Service Department

Highly absorbent subfloors such as sand/cement screeds and plywood etc. may cause rapid drying of the adhesive, thus reducing the open time. Use STOPGAP P131 diluted4 parts of water and stir until thoroughly dispersed. This should be allowed to dry thoroughly before proceeding with the installation.

Dry and suitably prepared calcium sulphate screeds e.g. anhydrite must be primed with STOPGAP P121 - refer to STOPGAP P121 data sheet for further information.
