F Ball F49 Styccobond Hybrid PS Temperature Tolerant Pressure Sensitive Vinyl Adhesive 2kg


STYCCOBOND F49 HYBRID PS is a temperature tolerant, water-based pressure sensitive adhesive that can be used for installing:

• Vinyl floorcoverings

• Skirting, coving and capping

• PVC edgings

• PVC backed textile floor and wall coverings

It is designed for use in conservatories, areas where floor to ceiling windows are installed and other areas where floorcoverings have to be tolerant of extreme temperature variations. It gives a strong initial tack and high bond strength.

The mixing of the two unique components maximises the high strength of the adhesive and makes it suitable for use in service conditions where temperatures can fluctuate between -200 C and +600 C, in accordance with floorcovering manufacturers’ recommendations. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating systems.

STYCCOBOND F49 HYBRID PS provides an extremely strong water resistant bond enabling application in areas subject to water/high humidity when used in conjunction with a suitable STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.

Outstanding plasticiser resistance ensures STYCCOBOND F49 HYBRID PS can be used for securing highly plasticised flooring accessories and trims. The high final bond strength ensures optimum dimensional stability throughout the lifetime of the installation.

STYCCOBOND F49 HYBRID PS can be used for securing a wide range of PVC floorcoverings in both tile and sheet format. When installing sheet floorcoverings, install while the adhesive is wet; the subfloor must be absorbent to allow drying of the adhesive. See the F. Ball Recommended Adhesives Guide for details of specific floorcoverings.

It can be applied to structually sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/ cement screed, calcium sulphate, STOPGAP smoothing underlayments and plywood. Sound flooring grade asphalt must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm and a maximum 6mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.

STYCCOBOND F49 HYBRID PS can be applied directly to STOPGAP epoxy waterproof surface membranes and other non-absorbent subfloors where the surface finish is smooth enough to permit the installation of resilient floorcoverings. On nonabsorbent surfaces the adhesive should be allowed to dry to a clear, tacky consistency before installing the floorcovering.
