F. Ball products save luxury London event venue from flood damage

A range of products including Styccobond F3 adhesive, have been used to deliver a high quality, long-lasting floor finish in Plaisterers Hall, an event venue in London, as part of a refurbishment of the building following flood damage.

A regional F. Ball representative had conducted a moisture test and concluded that the subfloor was sufficiently dry to proceed with the installation. When flooring contractors arrived on site, the original carpet floorcovering had been removed. The contractors first applied Stopgap P131 general purpose primer over the subfloor, to seal the entire area, and to aid adhesion of the smoothing underlayment.

Once the primer had dried, contractors applied the low odour, fast setting, fast drying, two component smoothing underlayment Stopgap 1200 Pro over the entire screed.

Finally, Styccobond F3 adhesive was used to adhere the carpet to the subfloor. Styccobond F3 is a water based rubber/resin flooring adhesive that has excellent wet grab with an early build up of strength. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations. Hence, the product was used as part of this project.

Clive Manning, Managing Director of Edgeco Ltd., commented: “We always use F. Ball products as we find them to be reliable and we can be certain that they will always enable us to create a professional, durable floor finish. The range of products that our F. Ball representative advised us to use for this refurbishment helped us to recover this floor from flood damage and create a room that our customer was very pleased with.”
