Surface Preparation

Surfaces should be dry and clean. Floors must be insulated from the ground with a vapour barrier membrane, be structurally sound and even. Grout cracks, holes and joints. Unroll artificial turf to allow it to relax for at least 2 hours prior to installation, in shade if it is to be installed in sun. Concrete: Must be free of any efflorescence and be at least 28 days old. Wood: Must be clean and free of splinters.

Product Application

Lay carpet in position without adhesive, butting or overlapping edges slightly. Roll carpet back to an area that can be adhered within 15 minutes and apply adhesive using a 3 mm (1/8 in.) V-notched trowel. Allow adhesive to set by waiting 15 minutes and set covering within 30 minutes. Press using a carpet tube or a short piece of lumber. If air bubbles are present, pierce the centre of the bubble to let the vapour escape. Press the carpet back firmly against the adhesive. Note: Always use a trowel so that 80% of the back of the material is covered with adhesive once it is in place.

Working Time

30 minutes. Do not apply on hot surfaces or in blazing sun. Very warm temperatures will decrease working time. Wait 24 hours before walking on the carpet.
