Adhesives

Double Face Adhesive Tape

Double face adhesive tape is ideal for semi-permanent rubber flooring installations or for “tacking” rubber rolls and tiles to the subfloor. The 3.5”-wide tape features a convenient release paper for easy application and handy, red centerlines for aligning chalk lines and centering floor seams. Solvent-and mastic-free, this tape is odorless, waterproof and freeze/thaw stable. It can be installed over a variety of substrates, including: concrete, ceramic, brick, wood, slate and metal. Double face adhesive tape is not made for use on asphalt surfaces. For permanent rubber flooring installations, see our recommended polyurethane floor adhesive. The double face adhesive tape is offered in single, 75-foot rolls or by the case (8 rolls.)

CX-941 AND CX-948 Polyurethane Adhesives

CX-941 and CS-948 are one-component polyurethane-based, structural, industrial grade adhesives. Elastomeric properties enable them to move with rubber as it expands and contracts. The patented formulas are VOC compliant, non-flammable, and contain no solvents or water. They have freeze-thaw stability (unlimited cycles), and they both provide excellent initial grab and outstanding bond strength. Both are formulated for indoor and outdoor applications on concrete, asphalt, rubber, cork, plywood, particle or chip board, cement, gypsum underlayment, and over radiant heat flooring When lightly misted with water, drying time is accelerated and will fully bond in just over 2 hours.

CX-22 Sealant/Adhesive

CX-22 is a one-component polyurethane-based, non-sag, moisture curing, Class A adhesive/sealant that is VOC compliant. It has permanent flexibility and high strength, giving it outstanding durability and tear resistance. It also resists weathering and stress of movement. CX-22 is used as an adhesive seam sealer which waterproofs seams.

Transition Strips

Ultimate Transition Strips

Ultimate Transition Strips are recommended for use where exposed rubber floor edges create potential trip hazards. Made from homogenous PVC, these strips are available in two different sizes. The 0.25″ profile fits 4-6mm rubber thicknesses while the 0.375″ profile accommodates 7-9mm thick rubber flooring.

Ultimate Transition Strips can be cut to size or trimmed to fit tight spaces with a utility knife. These strips are easily installed using a urethane adhesive and are great for busy workplace interiors and high-traffic public spaces like shopping malls, airport terminals, nursing homes, schools, hospitals and office environments. Ultimate Transition Strips are 12’ long and sold individually. Both strips are ADA compliant.
