Applications & Uses

Application Instructions
  1. Thoroughly read Installation instructions on this Product Data Sheet (PDS), read the Safety Data Sheet (SDS), and read vinyl flooring manufacturer instructions regarding conditioning the vinyl flooring, prior to installation.
  2. Substrate must be clean, dry, and free of dust, grease, paints, oils, or any other foreign material. Refer to complete instructions in Substrate Preparation section noted above.
  3. No mixing required, just pour to use.
  4. As an option, when installing flooring where finished baseboards, door casings, cabinets or other “obstacles” are already in place, apply this adhesive adjacent to these types of finished areas first, using a deck paint pad applicator, as described in Steps 5 through 7 below. For application in areas where finishes are not yet in place, you can opt to skip directly to Step 8.
  5. (Optional-see Step 4 above) Pour out a small pool of adhesive (approximately 6" to 9" in diameter) and use it to saturate the deck paint pad applicator.
  6. Pour a continuous 1" (25 mm) wide bead of adhesive 1" to 3" (25-76 mm) away from any finished wall or “obstacle”.
  7. Spread the bead of adhesive up to the finished wall or “obstacle” using the saturated deck paint pad applicator, similar to a painting “cut in” procedure around areas that are not to be painted.
  8. For application in an open floor area, use a 1/4" (6mm) nap paint roller. A 3/8" (9mm) nap roller may be required for stiffer, heavier vinyl flooring. Before applying this adhesive, separately pour out enough adhesive to fully saturate the roller; saturate the roller by rolling through this small pool of adhesive.
  9. Pour an initial continuous 1" (25 mm) wide bead of adhesive onto the substrate, approximately 12" (30 cm) from any wall or barrier. Then pour additional 1" (25 mm) wide bead lines of adhesive across the subfloor area every 30" (76 cm)— only pour out enough bead lines for an area that you expect to roll out in 15 minutes. 
  10. Spread a continuous single coat of the adhesive over the substrate using the saturated roller, by running the roller side to side through each continuous adhesive bead, 15" (37 cm) to each side of the poured bead. Keep the roller saturated throughout the adhesive application.
  11. After application of the adhesive, vinyl flooring installation can begin when the adhesive becomes clear and does not transfer to fingertips when lightly touched (10-15 minutes under normal conditions). The open time to accept flooring is 6-8 hours. Refer to vinyl flooring manufacturer’s instructions, to install the flooring.
  12. Once the vinyl flooring is installed, it must be rolled in both directions with a 100-150 pound three-section roller. Use a small hand roller in areas that cannot be reached with a large roller. Foot traffic is acceptable immediately after rolling is completed.
  13. Rolling loads, appliance or furniture placement for 24 hours after flooring installation.
  14. Heat welding may be performed after 60 minutes.


Clean-up: Easy clean-up. Remove wet adhesive with a damp cloth. Remove dried adhesive using a cloth dampened with denatured alcohol. 

Approved Substrates

When properly prepared, suitable substrates include:

  • Concrete (all grade levels)
  • Underlayment grade plywood
  • Gypsum substrates (properly prepared)
  • Well bonded, smooth, wax-free, existing single layer non-cushioned resilient flooring 
Limitations
  • Although adhesive may be used when ambient or surface temperatures are between 60°F-90°F (16ºC-32ºC), always follow flooring manufacturer's temperature, acclimation and Installation guidelines for the vinyl flooring being installed.
  • Always protect newly-installed vinyl flooring from heavy traffic, rolling loads, appliance or furniture placement for 24 hours after flooring installation.
  • Do not use with fiberglass-backed vinyl sheetgoods, nor directly over peel and stick tile.
  • Not recommended for use with felt-backed or mineral-backed vinyl sheetgoods, linoleum or rubber.
  • Not for use in areas subject to flooding or water immersion.
  • Do not use in coolers, freezers or seasonally used buildings subject to temperature or humidity extremes.
  • Not recommended for use on stairs or vertical surfaces.
  • May be used over in-floor heating systems, with a maximum floor temperature of 85°F, if allowed by the flooring manufacturer.
  • Not for exterior use. Interior use only.
  • The dimensional stability of some vinyl flooring products is very sensitive to fluctuations in ambient environment conditions. H.B. Fuller Construction Products Inc. is not responsible for installation issues caused by dimensional changes in flooring.

Technical Details & Test Data

Tests Conducted Prior to Application

Substrate Preparation: Floor must be clean, smooth, dry, and free of any foreign matter that would interfere with a good bond. Existing adhesive must be removed by mechanical means, such as shot blasting or scarification. Be sure to use proper safety equipment for hazardous materials as old cutback adhesive may contain asbestos. Harmful dust may result. Inhalation of asbestos dust may cause asbestosis or other serious bodily harm. Consult all applicable government agencies for rules and regulations concerning the removal of floorings and adhesives that contain asbestos. Do not use solvents or liquid adhesive removers. Fill all cracks and depressions with a suitable TEC® cement-based floor patch and/ or underlayment. Best practices for cleaning typically include vacuuming and damp mopping.

Moisture Test: Concrete moisture testing should be performed by ASTM F1869 calcium chloride tests with moisture levels not to exceed eight (8) pounds per twenty-four (24) hours per one thousand (1000) square feet, or ASTM F2170 in situ relative humidity test with readings not to exceed ninety (90) percent on existing slabs. New construction projects or green slabs with declining moisture values and an intact vapor barrier beneath the slab per ASTM E1745 can have a moisture vapor emission rate of up to ten (10) pounds per twenty-four (24) hours per one thousand (1000) square feet or ninety-five (95) percent relative humidity when tested in accordance with ASTM F2170. In addition, the concrete must be fully cured (at least 45 days) and without hydrostatic pressure. All substrates should be prepared in accordance with ASTM F710.

For concrete with a prior history of uncorrected moisture conditions or problems involving higher moisture levels, treat the concrete with one of the following TEC® brand moisture mitigation solutions:

TEC® LiquiDam™ - apply per Product Data Sheet (PDS) instructions and allow to cure. Once cured, apply TEC® Multipurpose Primer followed by application of a minimum ¹/8" thickness of the appropriate TEC® cementitious floor patch. If thicker cementitious smoothing and leveling is needed, install a TEC® self-leveling underlayment over the primed LiquiDam™. If the concrete is smooth and level enough to accept vinyl flooring and does not require a cementitious underlayment, RollFast™ Vinyl Flooring Adhesive may be applied directly to the cured LiquiDam™ surface.

TEC® LiquiDam EZ™ - apply per PDS instructions and allow to dry. Apply a minimum ¹/8" thickness of an appropriate TEC® cementitious floor patch directly over the LiquiDam EZ™ (no primer required). If thicker cementitious smoothing and leveling is needed, install a TEC® self-leveling underlayment directly over the LiquiDam EZ™ (no primer required). If the concrete surface is smooth and level enough to accept vinyl flooring, a minimum ¹/8" thickness of TEC® cementitious floor patch must still be installed over LiquiDam EZ™ prior to application of the RollFast™ Vinyl Flooring Adhesive.

Alkalinity Test: Concrete alkalinity testing must be performed in accordance with ASTM F710. A pH range of 7-11 is satisfactory for this adhesive. Confirm the acceptable range for the flooring per the manufacturer’s guidelines. A reading outside of either range requires corrective measures before flooring installation. Always follow flooring manufacturer’s guidelines for acceptable levels of alkalinity for the vinyl flooring.

Porosity Test: Substrate porosity testing must be performed in accordance with ASTM F3191. First prepare the substrate to a clean, sound condition, free of any matter that would interfere with a good bond. To test porosity, place a drop of water on the substrate surface in several places; if the water is absorbed into the surface in less than 10 seconds, an application of TEC® Multipurpose Primer is mandatory before the application of adhesive because the substrate is very porous. Follow PDS instructions for the primer application, then follow the specific adhesive installation instructions listed below.
