Working Surfaces

Surface must be dry and free of any material that may deter adhesion. Cut and fit all materials before applying adhesive. Apply adhesive using proper trowel. Install carpet, tiles or sheet goods within 15-60 minutes. Roll with appropriate roller. Allow adhesive to dry well before exposing installation to cleaning water.


Tools and excess adhesive may be cleaned with water while wet. If adhesive has dried, use mineral spirits or equivalent solvent. Follow solvent vendor's precautions when using solvents. NOTE: Test solvent in an out-of-the-way area to make sure it will not mar or attack the surface.

Not recommended for outdoor use. Keep from freezing. Subfloors and materials should be at least 65°F. prior to and after installation. Do not use between two non-porous surfaces for a wet installation method.
CAUTION: EYE AND SKIN IRRITANT. Do not swallow. Do not allow eye contact or prolonged skin contact. FIRST AID: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting; contact physician. If eye contact occurs, flush eyes with water for 15 minutes. Wash skin contact areas with soap and water. If irritation from eye or skin contact areas persists, contact physician.
