CEMIX CARPET ADHESIVE is a ready to use, adhesive which is specifically formulated for the installation of commercial and domestic carpet floor coverings. It has high initial grab and is ideal for bonding carpets to a variety of substrates. It is non-flammable, low odour, eco-friendly, water based formulation which is easy to apply. It contains an anti microbial.
The substrate should be free of dust, grease, wax, oil, dirt, loose plaster, laitance, curing compounds, paint and all other friable materials and contaminants likely to prevent the adhesive from bonding. New concrete should be left with a wood float finish and sufficiently aged for a minimum of 28 days. Shiny smooth surfaces on old concrete should be acid etched or scabbled. Then use Cemix cement screeds/floor levelers/renders and they must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 7 days. All substrates should be structurally sound, securely fastened and properly supported to eliminate any movement, which may cause cracking. It is recommended to seal/prime surfaces.
Prime using CEMIX WALL & FLOOR PRIMER undiluted using a roller or a brush and wait until it is tacky before applying this adhesive. Surfaces treated with waterproof membranes or some curing agents should be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of a proprietary cementitious underlayment according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
PLEASE ENSURE THERE IS NO RISING DAMP AS THIS WILL LEAD TO DELAMINATION.
