Pressure sensitive vinyl/PVC sheet and tile acrylic flooring adhesive.
STYCCOBOND F46 is a solvent free pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that dries to a permanent tacky film. It is used to reduce the incidence of trowel serrations shadowing through thin vinyl flooring and is designed to give strong initial tack and a high bond strength. It is protected against biodegradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations.
STYCCOBOND F46 can be used for securing a wide range of PVC sheet and tile floorcoverings.
See the F. Ball Recommended Adhesives Guide for details of specific floorcoverings.
STYCCOBOND F46 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, plywood, flooring grade chipboard and hardboard.
Sound flooring grade asphalt must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.
STYCCOBOND F46 can be applied directly to epoxy resin STOPGAP waterproof surface membranes and other non-absorbent subfloors where the surface finish is smooth enough to permit the installation of resilient floorcoverings.
For details on other subfloors contact our Technical Service Department.
Highly absorbent subfloors such as sand/cement screeds and plywood etc. may cause high absorption of the adhesive. Use STOPGAP P131 diluted 4 parts of water and stir until thoroughly dispersed. This should be applied and allowed to dry thoroughly before proceeding with the installation.
Dry and suitably prepared calcium sulphate screeds e.g. anhydrite must be primed with neat STOPGAP P121.
