New acrylic-based adhesives for LVTs

The ever-increasing popularity of luxury vinyl tiles (LVTs) and PVC-backed vinyl tiles in both domestic and commercial flooring applications has resulted in the development of a new acrylic flooring adhesive for installation of these types of floor coverings.

TAL, a division of Norcros SA, recently introduced TAL Profix Plus LVT, a new solvent free, high strength, modified acrylic-based adhesive designed as part of the company’s multi-level installation system. Both LVTs and vinyl tiles require this multi-level system, comprising a vapour barrier, primer, levelling compound and adhesive to ensure a successful installation. TAL’s Profix Plus LVT is also suitable for application on concrete, screed, topping underlayment compounds, render and wood.

Gela Ohl, TAL Marketing Manager explains, “Our goal is to provide complete solutions to our customers, with products that are designed to be compatible with one another and deliver a superior end result.”

TAL Profix Plus LVT is an anti-fungal, solvent free adhesive, which is applied with a serrated trowel or new short-pile mohair paint roller, before applying the floor covering while the adhesive is still wet.

The adhesive has excellent wet grab properties and because it is solvent free, it is safer for installers and the environment. The installation is trafficable for light foot traffic after 2-hours and is ready for full-service conditions within 12-24 hours, depending on site conditions.
