F. Ball to showcase new Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS vinyl adhesive at Domotex 2017


The latest innovations from F. Ball and Co. Ltd., the UK’s leading manufacturer of subfloor preparation products and flooring adhesives, will be showcased at the 2017 Domotex exhibition in Hannover, Germany.

The F. Ball stand will feature a range of popular F.Ball adhesives, alongside new Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS, a revolutionary development in temperature tolerant vinyl adhesive.

This new pressure sensitive vinyl adhesive is a unique formulation and offers instant initial grab, combined with ultra-high bond strength, providing contractors with the familiar reassurance of high initial tack and, when fully cured, it develops the strength to hold vinyl sheets and tiles securely in place across a huge range of temperatures. The water-based adhesive has been specifically developed for use in conditions, which are subject to extreme 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.

Information about F. Ball’s IQ2 Adhesive Application System will also be available to visitors of their Domotex stand. The IQ2 system speeds up application by up to four times and offers the option of spray or roller application. The roller system is compatible with a wide range of standard F. Ball adhesives, as well as two types of primer and Stopgap F78 waterproof surface membrane and a range of specially formulated spray adhesives is also available.

In addition, F. Ball will launch the 2017 version of the Recommended Adhesives Guide (RAG), featuring over 6,000 up-to-date adhesive recommendations for floorcoverings, endorsed by over 200 leading international manufacturers. The RAG, which includes recommendations for new Styccobond F49 Hybrid PS vinyl adhesive, endorsed by several of the most prominent vinyl floorcovering manufacturers will be accessible online and as an app.

Richard Harris, Marketing Manager at F. Ball said: “We’re looking forward to returning to Domotex to showcase our products to a world-wide audience. At F.Ball, we are constantly researching and developing new products based on the needs of flooring contractors, and I’m confident that the products that we will be exhibiting at Domotex will enable contractors to complete jobs more quickly and efficiently than before.”

F. Ball’s sales and marketing personnel will be on hand at the exhibition to answer any questions or to discuss the company’s latest product developments.
