Bostik Elastomeric Flooring Adhesive

Bostik's Elastomeric Flooring Adhesive is a one-part, trowel-applied, moisture-cure urethane adhesive designed or both solid and engineered woods.  Its elastomeric characteristics allow the adhesive to move with the wood as it expands and contracts over the life of the floor.  EFA+ contains no water and was designed to spread and clean up easier.

This product is best when applied with 1 new trowel per can (accessories tab for the product you are purchasing has recommended trowel needed). Number of cans recommended is based on manufactor installation application guidelines and square footage per can is not guaranteed.

        Read the review left by Joe from Jensen Beach, Florida

        Worked perfectly.

        For me, the gloves got in the way but get them and try them. I found I could work cleaner without the gloves so less glue got on the wood. If I got glue on my hands I would just wipe it off quickly with a rag.

        You will want the gloves for some things (like removing the skin) so get them.

        I didn't find that you had to wipe the mess as quickly as some mention. I would do 3 rows, then wipe with the messes with cleaner then use the soapy rag to remove the cleaner.

        I bought the blue tape for taping the pieces but I didn't wind up using it. I just kept tapping the pieces back together as needed. But try it. It might work for you.

        Also, instead of numbering the pieces, I just stacked them in order in separate rows. So the first piece I stacked would be the last piece that went back to it's spot.

        I also found that I was able to apply the glue for three rows first, without it setting but try doing less first (as Joe mentions) and see how quick you are.

        I did it by myself but it definitely would have been better with two people. It gets tedious alone.

        Good luck.

              Comments about Bostik Engineered Flooring Adhesive:

              Although I did not use it myself, my brother who is a professional, used it to install bamboo in my bathroom. He was quite pleased with it and said having the adhesive remover made it easier to clean up any excess that would squeeze between boards. [...] Nailing the bamboo was not a workable option because HardieBacker Board was on the subfloor. I would recommend the adhesive, but having to pay for such a large quantity made my savings on the flooring disappear.

                  This is a very messy glue. Use care not to get it on wood surface. Wipe off IMMEDIATELY with mineral spirit soaked rag.

                  Spreads very smoothly!

                          I USED THE PRODUCT ON CONCRETE TO LAY THE BAMBOO FLOORING, IT WORKED GREAT. IF YOU ARE A DO IT YOURSELF PERSON, AND THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME USING THIS TYPE OF ADHESIVE, BE AWARE AS YOU LAY THE FLOORING, THE GLUE HAS A TENDENCY TO SEPARATE THE HARDWOOD FLOORING, WHEN I SAY THAT, SMALL GAPS SO YOU WILL HAVE TO GO BACK AND ADJUST AND TIGHTEN THEM UP,SO KEEP THAT IN MIND. THE OTHER THING IS IF YOU CAN'T FINISH ALL IN ONE DAY, MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET THE EXCESS GLUE, SO IT DOESN'T DRY, MAKES IT HARDER THE NEXT DAY.

                          THE ONE THING THAT I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THE GLUE IS, THAT AT LEAST 3/4" OF THE TOP OF THE CAN WHEN FIRST OPENING IT UP IS ALREADY HARD FROM THE PROCESS, SOME WHAT OF A WASTE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE.

                                Bostik EFA is excellent for engineered flooring over concrete subfloor. Troweled on Moisture Barrier is recommended if subfloor is on or below grade concrete. Always use the same manufacturer of moisture barrier and adhesive.

                                You can glue to flat level concrete free of contaminates, moisture and sealers.

                                This depends on what flooring you use. You need different trowels for different floors and each spreads differently.

                                The coverage rate will depend on the trowel size. Which trowel size you use will depend on the product being glued. For information on gluing down rubber please contact Bostik. Their phone number can be found on there online website.

                              We have two cans of this product. It has been a year and half since purchased, both cans have gone bad, how do we dispose of them?

                                You would need to contact your local waste management facility as to what can be dumped and what would need to go into Hazmat. They typically have something on site to handle such materials

                            • Q:

                              I live in Corona CA and moisture level is very low. I want to install 1500 sq ft of engineered wood. The kitchen has sheet vinyl and family room is carpet. Can I install both areas together with only having to remove the carpet? Would there be a transition problem? I know the vinyl may act as a moisture barrier but I'm concerned about the transition from the vinyl to the concrete. Also, would it be safe to not use a moisture barrier on the rest of the concrete?

                                Yes, Bostik Engineered Flooring Adhesive can be used over radiant heat floor systems embedded in concrete and under plywood subfloors. However, it is not recommended to be used over radiant heat embedded in gypcrete.
