Step 1

Fold back half of the sheet to reveal the correctly prepared subfloor ready for the application of adhesive. Spread the recommended amount of adhesive consistently over the subfloor, using a notched trowel. After applying the adhesive wait in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommended open time before returning the floor into place.

Step 2

Install the sheet avoiding bubbles, compressions and tensions, removing any bubbles by rubbing from inside to outside. Carry this step out using a weighted roller before the adhesive has fully dried.

Mopping the vinyl floor

Step 5

You should leave your floor for 24-hours before walking on it as normal. The movement of heavy furniture should be avoided for a 72-hour period so that the adhesive can stabilize. Prevent contact with water for the same 72 hours, after which the adhesive will be sufficiently resistant to water and bonding strength will not be affected.
