Seal & adhear, no odor, easy handling

By Rocky

from Austin, Texas

Clean up dry glue on wood surface with heavy duty Magic Eraser, works great! Check can dates, our first can was older and had a very thick skin on top. Plan to use the entire can when opened, does not store well over time.

A lot of waste for the price

By Merk

from Phoenix, AZ

product works well but for the price I felt that there was about 20% waste. When I opened the can I had to cut off a thick layer of dried glue. when I neared the bottom of the can the glue was too thick to get out of the can and use effectively.

Very Good Product

By Mac

from San Antonio, TX

Pros

  • Easy clean-up
  • Good adhesion
  • Low oder

Cons

  • Coverage
  • Price

Best Uses

    Very good product, spreads easily. Easy clean-up with wipe offs. Recommend just letting your tools sit overnight and then the adhesive peels off easily. Only got about 120 sq ft coverage from a 4 gal bucket, using the recommended 1/4 in notched trowel. Makes it an expensive glue.

    not LLs fault

    By cabin fever

    from smokey mtns

    Verified Reviewer

    unless you have several people on the job you can't get the full amount in the can out and usable. product skins over in the can very quickly as you apply what you can work with, so each time you go back to get more glue you need to peel off the skin, wasting some product. also as you pour you have glue that sticks to the side of the can. probably used 3 of the 4 gallons and left 1 gallon as skin or dried to the side of the can. maybe if you have 1 person cut, 1 pour and 1 lay the flooring you wouldn't have the problem of so much waste, but I put down the 12 x 14 bedroom by myself. product may protect from moisture but its too soon to tell.

      1 out of 6 four gallon buckets had over a 1" layer of cured product when opening bucket. Ultimately required me to purchase an additional 4 gallon bucket at ~$180.

      Big Disappointment

      By MIDIMan87

      from Goodyear, AZ

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Glue Sets Up Fast

      Cons

      • Bucket Improperly Sealed

      Best Uses

      • Hardwood flooring

      Nearly 1/3 of the bucket was hardened. I had to cut it out to get to the useable glue. For as pricey as this product is, you would think that you would get all of what you paid for.

      Smaller size would be nice

      By Karen327

      from Pleasant Hill, CA

      Verified Reviewer

      Purchased two 4 gallon tubs for the guys doing my floor which was 400sq ft of engineered wood on concrete slab. They needed more. Was disappointed to find not sold in anything smaller than 4 gallons as they didn't even use half of the 3rd tub I bought. It would be nice if this came in 2 gallon size also.

      Surprisingly Messy, But Effective

      By Hulithedane

      from Tucson, AZ

      Pros

      • Gets the job done
      • Provides good coverage

      Cons

      • A little stinky
      • pretty messy
      • Residue Requires Clean-up

      Best Uses

      • Concrete foundation

      Although the glue-down method may be less expensive than the sub-floor & nail-down method, it is probably more messy. The professional installers spent a lot of time cleaning up glue residue after the installation, noting that nail-down was definitely an easier, cleaner installation method.

        I used the bostic seal and grip to put bamboo wood floors in. It was so messy. What is the best way to clean off the wood without damaging the wood?
        Asked on 8/1/2015 by Gary from Edmond, OK

        1 answer

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          Here's something you can try! (Always test on scrap board or in an inconspicuous area first).
          1.) Using the Ultimate Adhesive Remover towelette (or a mineral spirit dampened clean rag) and place on the spotted area, let stand for 10 minutes or so.
          2.) Take an original Mr Clean Magic Eraser (This is a foam pad found in the cleaning section in most grocery stores). Use the foam side. Some have a scouring pad on 1-side that is too aggressive. Buff the area with the Magic Eraser in the long direction of the plank.
          3.) Get a clean white cotton cloth and/or micro-fiber cloth, very lightly dampened with water, wipe off the residue you created.
          Sorry no guarantees.

          Magic Eraser can work to remove adhesive in some instances. Success has also been made with mineral spirits but better is Bostik's Ultimate Adhesive Remover or Mapei Remover followed by a water damp rag to remove the adhesive remover before it can damage the finish. Hand buff. Try the remover as described above and repeat as many times that are necessary.

      • Q:

        I'm installing 5" x 1/2" engineered hardwood on concrete slab. I'm wondering if there is any amount of insulation value in this glue (or other glues). Instead of floating the floor on a pad, I'd like to secure the flooring to slab. The flooring will be installed in walk-out basement family room and I'd like some insulation value for the cold Chicago winters, if that's possible in an adhesive product. Any ideas?

          A:

          Unfortunately there has not been any testing on any of our adhesives for R-value by the manufacturers and to my knowledge this is not done in the industry.
          That being said my best educated guess would be 0.20 - 0.40 R-value when compared to other flooring materials of similar thickness & density.

          A:

          Water Based Latex Contact Adhesives are available at any local home center (solvent based are not VOC compliant and are no longer available to the general public).
          DAP Weldwood Contact Cement or Wilsonart H2O Contact Adhesive are readily available.
          SEAL-N-GRIP is urethane based and is not recommended for our cork tiles.
