Two-part reaction adhesive for heavy-duty interior/ exterior use.
STYCCOBOND F81 is a solvent free, two-part epoxy adhesive designed for use in areas that may be subject to surface water. When the adhesive has cured it is resistant to water, oil and grease. Although it is suitable for outdoor use, it is not intended to be used as, or a substitute for a waterproof surface membrane.
STYCCOBOND F81 can be used for securing a wide range of floorcoverings including some vinyl and rubber floorings, PVC backed synthetic grass carpet and fibre bonded carpets.
See the F. Ball Recommended Adhesives Guide for details of specific floorcoverings
STYCCOBOND F81 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, sound, smooth subfloors of concrete, granolithic, sand/cement screeds, plywood and bright steel.
Sound flooring grade asphalt must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.
For details on other subfloors, contact our Technical Service Department.
Proper subfloor preparation is essential for the correct installation of any floorcovering. Subfloors must be structurally sound, smooth, dry (<75% RH) and free from laitance and any contaminants which will affect adhesion. Use STYCCOCLEAN C140 for removing grease, oil, polish, soap etc. from non-absorbent substrates.
Concrete and sand/cement screeds must be fully cured and any laitance or surface treatments must be removed. Steel must be bright and free of any contaminants which would affect adhesion.
The temperature of the floor must be maintained above 10°C throughout the application and curing of the adhesive. Underfloor heating must be off for at least 48hours before, during and after application.
