Flexible floor adhesive

Recommended Posts

Wow, that seems expensive - £60 a tub!  I was planning on using Bamboo Flooring Company as we love the look of the wood and it seems much harder than oak so can be used in kitchens.  But I had not budgeted for the adhesives. Looks like I may need to revise our budget.

Both work really well  and you get around 20sqm per tub. 

 

Certainly aware of Sika, but when you start looking, there is a fairly large choice of products available, for roundabout the same sort of money, that all claim to do the same job.

Goes a long way !! 20sqm is £3 a sqm. That's not much difference to a decent tile adhesive

I used the sika for the same setup and have had no problems two years down the line. Think I only paid £30 a tub though. It's seriously sticky stuff, you only have maybe at a push 1 min to get the board into place and make sure it's good other wise you will need a spade to get it off the concrete.

Did you have to prime the concrete in any way first?

I first put a weak coat of pva on the floor just to keep the dust down and when I was ready, 2 months later, I used a primer.
