Quick-Step Vinyl Glue Coverage
The coverage will largely depend on the sub-floor, Providing you use an A2 notched trowel you will probably use 250-350 grams per square metre. Therefore a 6 kg tub should cover between 17 and 24 square metres. Likewise a 15 kg tub should cover between 42 and 60 square metres.
This Quick-Step adhesive should only be applied to an even, dry, clean, sound and smooth floor substrate. Also the sub-floor should also be free from irregularities and cracks. Residues from old adhesives must be removed mechanically, loose or damaged surfaces must be repaired before the application of the adhesive. Similarly powdery, very porous and very smooth surfaces will all need some preparation and cleaning before gluing begins.
Quick-Step Vinyl adhesive should be acclimatised to room temperature before installation. Using a notched A2 trowel take care not to apply too much adhesive to the surface then can be covered with the vinyl floor within the open time. Apply floor within 10 to 20 minutes in the still semi-wet adhesive layer and then roll with a roller of 50 kg or greater. There are several conditions to the floor laying, including temperature and humidity.
Uncured Quick-Step vinyl glue can be removed form tools and flooring with lukewarm water. Cured adhesive must be removed mechanically.
