PVA Dispersion Based Floating Wood Floor Glue

Special features

  • Cold water resistant
  • Suitable for radiant heat systems

Product Description
PVA-Dispersion-based floating wood floor glue. Contains no solvents, no VOC. Superior bond strength. Resistant against aging. Suitable for radiant heat systems

Pre-Installation Checklist
A successful installation requires proper preparation of the subfloor. Read and understand all applicable guidelines and technical data sheets before installation. Follow industry standards and flooring manufacturers' recommendations for subfloor moisture content, design, layout, and application of flooring materials. All flooring material's backing must be solid, sound, and free of anti-adherents. All slab constructions must meet the specific requirements of the floor covering to be installed.
Sub Floor Examination
Prior to installation, the subfloor must be checked according to NWFA installation guidelines. It must be solid and sound, flat, permanently dry, clean, free of chaps, indentations, and anti-adherents, and resistant to pressure and tension. The moisture content of all floors must be measured before installation.
All wood floors should have 6-9% moisture content at installation. There should be no more than a 4-5% variance in moisture content between the wood flooring and any wood subfloor. See NWFA guidelines and the wood flooring manufacturer's recommendations for details.
Sub Floor Preparation
Depending on the type and condition of the subfloor, a mechanical treatment (e.g. mechanical brushing, grinding, or sanding) may be required. The intensity of such work must be determined at the site by the installer. Dust, paint, residual adhesives, or other surface contaminants must be removed by suitable means. Cleaning the surface with an industrial vacuum cleaner is recommended. Cracks and gaps must be filled with concrete crack filler unless they are expansion joints. Level when necessary to 3/16 inches within 10 feet. Heated subfloors, gypcrete, wooden subfloors, levelers, patches, and lightweight concrete must be primed. Fast curing cementitious leveling or patching compounds might reduce the flash and work time of water-based products due to absorption.
Installation Procedure
Installation of laminate floors:
Apply glue continuously along the upper part of the tongue of the element already laid and along the upper side of the lower groove edge of the element to be laid.

Installation of engineered, plywood and chipboard:
Apply glue continuously along the upper and lower part of the tongue of the element to be laid. Press elements together hard. Wipe wet adhesive from pre-finished flooring with a cloth dampened with water. Add mild soap if necessary. Do not leave water spills on flooring as they will cause dimensional changes to the wood flooring.
When using other than STAUF products in conjunction with STAUF primers, sealers, leveling compounds, or adhesives, STAUF denies any and all responsibility for any ensuing problems and/or damages without prior written authorization from STAUF.
Liquid glue must NOT come into contact with metal! Utilize glass, ceramic, or plastic containers and only new, clean brushes.
In case of an accident, injury, spill, or exposure, see SDS for information. Consult the Technical Data Sheet at for updated information.
