INSTARMAC announces strategic partnership with Forbo Eurocol to introduce high-performance UltraFloor adhesives

INSTARMAC, part of the ‘multi award-winning market-leading’ manufacturer, has signed a partnership with Forbo Eurocol, part of the worldwide ‘market-leader of flooring coverings’ Forbo Group, to supply the UK market with what it describes as a range of high-performance flooring adhesives, under the UltraFloor brand.

Lizzie Elston, managing director at Instarmac, commented: ‘Customer demand for UltraFloor adhesives has been overwhelming and I am proud to share that we now offer a complete subfloor preparation package that makes life easier for contractors.

‘Adding adhesives to our range has been our ambition for many years, so we knew when we finally launched it had to be exceptional. We have taken the time to curate a range of adhesives that meet the world class standards people have come to expect from UltraFloor and provide a true benefit for our end users.’

Says the company: ‘The UltraFloor adhesive portfolio begins with Stick IT 500 – a multipurpose floorcovering adhesive with high initial grab. This versatile adhesive provides a strong initial wet grab and boasts an excellent final, and long-term bond strength for carpets and vinyls, as well as various common floorcoverings used in interior flooring installations.

‘Stick IT 542 provides a permanent tacky film when applied to stable and smooth subfloors – the ideal adhesive for fixing carpet tiles and loose-lay PVC floors or floorcoverings with PVC backings. Stick IT 542 gives a strong enough tack to prevent movement of floorcoverings under general traffic but can be uplifted and replaced with ease.’

For bonding dimensionally stable LVT, PVC sheets, planks and tiles in interior environments, UltraFloor recommends the use of Stick IT 543. This ‘pressure-sensitive adhesive is specifically suited for use in high temperature installations and areas of direct sunlight – the perfect choice for glazed shop fronts and conservatories’.

The company continues: ‘With strong setting strengths, Stick IT 611 is ideally suited for bonding all types of linoleum floorcoverings. This superior, water-based, resin-free adhesive can withstand the high stresses of busy foot traffic and chair castors making it the adhesive of choice for shopping centres, schools, hospitals, and public transport including use on trains and buses.

‘Completing the range is Stick IT 640, a water-based, acrylic polymer dispersion adhesive for use with vinyl, polyolefin and rubber floorcoverings. This low emission and odour neutral adhesive has a long open time and long final adhesion strength.’
