The fastest way to apply a carpet tile tackifier while offering an exceptionally high tack that will hold all types of carpet tiles but still allow release when required.
Grab-Tac is a fast drying, high tack carpet tile adhesive. It is designed for bonding carpet tiles to a wide range of substrates including wood, metal and concrete. The bulk aerosol system has no wastage and has proved to be seven times fast than the traditional trowelling of adhesives.
To apply the adhesive simply position the wand approximately 40-50cm from the floor and spray the adhesive evenly in a thin layer moving constantly across the area to be coated. In order to achieve a releasable bond allow the adhesive to dry, it will adopt a clear appearance as it does so, depending on the thickness of coverage and the room atmosphere this will take approximately 10 minutes. Once the carpet tiles have been laid they can be repeatedly lifted without damaging the adhesive or substrates, however if the tiles are laid whilst the adhesive is still wet a permanent bond will be formed.
All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and paint. Any excessive dust must be removed as failure to do so will impair the performance of the adhesion. If applying the adhesive directly on to concrete, or sand and cement screeds, they must be fully cured and laitance free. If applying to earth sub-floors an efficient damp proof membrane must be incorporated. Site conditions must comply with British Standards CP 102 (Code of practice for protection of building against water from underground), BS 5325 (Installation of textile floor coverings) and all supplementary publications must be followed throughout the installation.
If the system is to stand unused for a while then it is advisable to flush it out with Gemini Adhesives Gun Wash so it is ready for instant use in the future.
It is the users responsibility to ensure that the adhesive is suitable for the substrates to be bonded, if you are unsure please contact our technical department for assistance.
