Styccobond F49 used to install flooring in heavily glazed Oxfordshire room

F. Ball and Co. Ltd.’s Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS, water-based temperature tolerant adhesive, has been used to install luxury vinyl tiles in a heavily glazed kitchen, in a residential property in Oxfordshire.

Finch Flooring of Oxfordshire, were contracted to install 35m2 of luxury vinyl tiles, in the kitchen that features floor to ceiling windows. As such the kitchen floor is subject to direct sunlight and significant temperature variations throughout the year. These conditions can cause floorcoverings to expand and contract over time, leading to problems such as gapping and tenting.

However, the unique formulation of Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS provides the perfect solution by combining high temperature tolerance, high bond strength and pressure sensitive properties to ensure that even under the most extreme temperature fluctuations, floorcoverings are held firmly in place, offering a combination of qualities not usually provided by traditional temperature tolerant adhesives.

Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS is designed for bonding vinyl tiles and sheets in areas subject to temperature fluctuations as low as -20°C and up to +60°C, such as conservatories or heavily glazed areas and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating systems. It gives strong initial tack, has high bond strength, and offers a long open time of up to four hours.

Paul Finch, owner of Finch Flooring, commented: “We always use F. Ball products when we are installing flooring and we are very pleased that our F. Ball representative recommended that we used Styccobond F49 for this installation. Styccobond F49 is a great product and it certainly helped us to combat the issue of installing vinyl tiles in an area that is subject to extreme temperature change.”
