        A lot of waste for the price

        By Merk

            Best Uses

              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

              from San Antonio, TX

              Pros

              • Easy clean-up
              • Good adhesion
              • Low oder

              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.

                      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.

                        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.

                              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.

                                    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.

                                                Works as intended. Very messy stuff!! The best tip I can provide is with the glue process: instead of trying to pour out of the 4 gallon bucket and not pour too much each time we used cheap ladles bought at the dollar store. This worked so well because we didn't have to lift heavy bucket and it gave us better control of how much glue we used for each section.

                                                  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?

                                                    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.

                                                    Generally laminate flooring is specifically designed to float. All the laminate flooring we carry is manufactured to do so. Unless a particular manufacturer instructions say otherwise; gluedown is not an option.

                                                  I used this glue to put down bamboo over concrete. It looked great then Hurricane Sandy came and changed all that. Floor showed no sign of warping after being underneath two feet of sea water but he mold guy said it had to come up and what a pane it was... It wouldn't let go. My question now is to prepare the slab for a new bamboo glue down do I have to grind all of the old glue off or will the new stuff stick to it? There is a very thing smooth layer still on the slab? Thanks!

                                                    The old adhesive will need to be razor-scraped to remove as much extra adhesive material (ridges) as possible and then all contaminates removed that will affect the bond.
                                                    To be sure I also would recommend contacting the manufacturer; Bostik Technical @ 800-523-6530.

                                                    Asphalt based adhesive are considered a bond-buster in the industry and unfortunately there are no adhesives (to my knowlege) that are compatible with it.
                                                    You will need to remove the old "cut-back" adhesive before proceeding with a glue down installation. Be aware that old adhesives can possibly contain asbestos.

                                                    We do not recommend gluedown of ¾" flooring over concrete subfloor. ½" inch or under solid or engineered may be, but ¾" can have failures. Except for Shorts or certain Virginia Mill Works floors that are 36" and under; these can be adhered.

                                                    Concrete needs to be dust free. Thoroughly clean with a floor scraper, broom and if necessary damp sponge mops (let thoroughly dry if you do this and check moisture content of concrete according to flooring manufacturers instructions). If it is powdery/chalky concrete or gypsum do not install with adhesive. Either lay a plywood subfloor over cement (instructions found at http://www.lumberliquidators.com/ll/flooring/Flooring101 keyword "cement" ) or use Elastilon Self Adhesive Underlayment to install the flooring; easy, quick, and extremely effective.
