SETCRETETM RAPID SET FLEXIBLE WOOD FLOORING ADHESIVE is a highly flexible adhesive suitable for the installation of engineered or solid plank, wood block and wood strip flooring. It is quick setting and develops a high bond strength. It is also suitable for use over underfloor heating systems.
SETCRETE™ FLEXIBLE WOOD FLOORING ADHESIVE can be applied to SETCRETE™ HIGH PERFORMANCE or SETCRETETM DEEP BASE Floor Levelling Compounds or structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screeds. SETCRETE™ FLEXIBLE WOOD FLOORING ADHESIVE can also be applied directly to SETCRETE™ RAPID SET DPM, within 24 hours of the membrane curing.
All aspects of the installation should be in accordance with the relevant British Standard i.e. BS 8201 - Code of practice for installation of flooring of wood and wood-based panels.
Base Preparation Proper subfloor preparation is essential. Subfloors must be structurally sound, smooth and dry. Concrete and sand/cement screeds must be free from laitance and any other contaminants which may affect adhesion.
The temperature of the floor must be maintained above 150C throughout the application and drying of the adhesive. Underfloor heating must be off for at least 48 hours before, during and after application.
