Adhesives have become an essential part of the flooring industry. They are used to secure floor coverings and other materials to a subfloor, providing a tight and secure fit. This month, we are focusing on adhesives and how one leading brand, F. Ball & Co. Ltd., is revolutionizing the industry.
F. Ball & Co. Ltd. continually invests in research and development to create new, innovative adhesives that meet the ever-increasing demands of the industry. The company utilizes dedicated on-site laboratories and testing facilities for this purpose. In response to the rising demand for fast-track products, F. Ball has developed two ground-breaking adhesives: Styccobond F58 PLUS and Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS.
Styccobond F58 PLUS is a fast-drying adhesive that transitions from a wet-lay adhesive to a fully pressure sensitive product, allowing LVT tiles and planks to be secured in as little as five minutes. The adhesive is also resistant to lateral movement, making it easier to create complex patterns.
Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS is a water-based vinyl adhesive with pressure sensitive characteristics. It has a very high bond strength and dimensional stability, allowing it to hold vinyl floorcoverings securely in place even in extreme temperature conditions. Moreover, in the initial stages of drying, the adhesive allows floors to be lifted and repositioned, making it ideal for installing tiles and planks.
