Working Surfaces

Surface must be dry and free of any material that may deter adhesion. Cut and fit all material before applying adhesive. Apply adhesive. Adhesive is ready when it becomes nearly clear and no longer transfers to the finger when lightly touched. Set tiles in place carefully because they will not slide. Roll within 12 hours. Allow adhesive to dry well before exposing installations to cleaning water.


Clean tools and excess adhesive 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.

Do not use directly over or under solid vinyl tile or sheet goods. Remove old vinyl flooring before laying new floor. Keep from freezing. Subfloor and materials should be at least 65°F. for 24 hours before and after installation.
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 and skin contact areas persists, contact physician. For additional information, refer to Safety Data Sheet.
