Substrate Preparation

Substrate must be sound, smooth, level, clean and dry. It must be free of dust, dirt, wax, loose paint, incompatible curing compounds or fire retardant chemicals, fungicides, release agents, sealers, or any other foreign substances that might interfere with a good bond.

Substrate must be level Note: When installing thin gauged wood (solid or engineered) irregular substrates may telegraph through as adhesive pulls wood down during curing stages. Therefore substrates must be properly leveled to prevent telegraphing. Fill all cracks, holes and low spots with polymer modified cementitious compound and allow to fully cure before applying adhesive. High spots must be ground level. Substrate, adhesive and wood flooring must be acclimated in an enclosed building with the HVAC operational and running for at least 72 hours before, during and after the installation. The installation temperature and relative humidity must be controlled between 15℃ and 30℃, and between 30% and 65% relative humidity, subject to the floor manufacturers requirements. Open time will vary with temperature and humidity or porosity of the substrate.

NOTE:

Wood flooring must be exposed to the air when being acclimated. However, follow the wood flooring manufacturers guidelines regarding site conditions and installation.

Wood Floor Installation

  • Follow flooring manufacturers guidelines for layout and any special precautions for installation.
  • Spread adhesive using recommended trowel. Install wood flooring immediately after adhesive is spread. Working time is approximately 50-70 minutes under specified temperature & humidity conditions. Adhesive must transfer 100% to the wood floor. NOTE: Thin-gauged solid & engineered wood and exotic species are very sensitive to site conditions. Wood flooring manufacturers and TAYLOR written pre-installation and installation instructions, including acclimation of the wood flooring, must be strictly followed or the TAYLOR warranty will be void.
  • Lay wood flooring into adhesive. Wood may slip and move at first so be sure to secure the initial row to limit movement and hold patterns. Occasionally lift a piece of wood to assure adhesive is achieving 100% transfer. If proper transfer is not achieved remove dried adhesive and apply more using recommended trowel. The use of tape to temporarily hold the edges together may be necessary until installation is complete.
  • When installing near a solid object or wall, leave ample room for expansion (see flooring manufacturers recommended expansion guidelines). Installing wood too tight against a stationary object will not allow room for normal wood expansion, which may cause a failure. When the installation is complete, use wedges or some object to hold wood in place while adhesive dries. Remove wedges after initial setting of adhesive (approximately 2 hours) to allow for normal expansion of wood. Failure to remove wedges can cause the wood flooring to buckle and pop off the substrate.
  • Roll and cross roll floor with a 100-150 lbs (45-70 kg) roller at the end of the installation to ensure proper transfer of adhesive.
  • When installing unfinished wood flooring, wait a minimum of 72 hours before sanding.
  • When installing over radiant heated subfloors, turn the heat off for 24 hours before, during and 24 hours after installation. Failure to turn the heat off may result in shortened working time of the adhesive. Floor temperature must not exceed 85℃.
  • Restrict light traffic for a minimum of 16 hours. Restrict heavy traffic for a minimum of 24 hours after installation is complete.
  • While this adhesive is freeze-thaw stable it is necessary to protect it from freezing.

Caution

DO NOT take internally. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention immediately and show either the container or label. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
