Tilemaster Adhesives introduces eco-friendly solutions for resilient flooring

TILEMASTER Adhesives says it offers the Eco-3000 range for the resilient flooring industry, and a full range of professional adhesives for tiling.

The company says: ‘Eco-3000 HT is a universal high-temperature, solvent-free adhesive suitable for use with a wide variety of floorcoverings such as LVT, PVC, sheet vinyl and PVC-backed carpet onto many different substrates, suitable for use with underfloor heating and in glass-fronted buildings, conservatories etc where the floor is exposed to direct sunlight.

‘It has a high shear bond strength and dries to a hard final set. It’s a wet-set product, and its 40 minute working time is ample to install floorcoverings.’

The company continues: ‘Eco-3000 PS is a pressure-sensitive adhesive, making it ideal for installing LVT floorcoverings. It’s been specially formulated with a short open time to give it excellent initial grab, making it ideal for intricate designs where it’s important there’s no movement in the installed LVT.

‘Eco-3000 PS has an excellent final bond strength ensuring a firm hold between the floorcovering and the substrate, a fast tacking off time meaning installation can begin after as little as 10 minutes and is suitable for use on various substrates including cement-based smoothing compounds, calcium sulphate-based smoothing compounds and flooring grade plywood.’

The company adds: ‘The tiling range includes a large variety of adhesives suitable for all substrates, tiling materials and site conditions. Where a flexible adhesive is required, there’s a choice of standard, semi-rapid and rapid setting products in the Setaflex range, a polymer modified, flexible cement-based wall and floor tile adhesive.

‘Both Setaflex Standard Set (3-4 hour pot-life, grouting after 24 hours) and Semi-Rapid Setaflex (pot life of 90-120 minutes, grouting after six hours) have been specially developed to give an extended pot life, making them ideal for working with larger, difficult to manoeuvre tiles.

‘They can be used internally and externally on almost all substrates, and in areas exposed to prolonged wet conditions. Rapid Setaflex is ready for grouting after three hours with a 30-minute pot life and has genuine S1 flexibility making it suitable for use on timber substrates and with UFH systems.’
