Rubber Flooring Adhesive

Special features
  • Adhesive for Rubber Flooring
  • cost effective
  • high shear strength
  • short flash time

Product Description
STAUF D709 is a highly specialized flooring adhesive that is designed specifically for the installation of rubber flooring. It has a superior green tack with very high shear and tensile strengths. It is very installer friendly due to its long open time.

STAUF D709 is non-hazardous, contains no VOC, is certified as "very low emission" by an independent laboratory. Due to the "green properties", STAUF D709 is eligible for LEED points.
Pre-Installation Checklist
A successful installation requires proper preparation of the sub floor. Read and understand all applicable guidelines and technical data sheets before installation. Follow industry standards and flooring manufacturer's recommendations for sub floor moisture content, design, layout and application of flooring materials. All slab constructions must meet the specific requirements of the floor covering to be installed.
Sub Floor Examination
Prior to installation, the sub floor must be checked according to applicable installation guidelines. It must be solid and sound, flat, permanently dry, clean, free of chaps, indentations and anti-adherents, as well as resistant to pressure and tension. Moisture content of all floors must be measured before installation.
Sub Floor Preparation
Depending on type and condition of sub floor, a mechanical treatment (e.g. mechanical brushing, grinding or sanding) may be required. 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 sub floors must be primed.
Installation Procedure
Spread the adhesive with the appropriate notched trowel. Avoid excessive adhesive thickness by passing the trowel evenly through the adhesive at a 45 degree angle. Observe the appropriate flash time (if applicable). Lay the flooring into the adhesive, correctly position it and press down firmly. Be sure to check the back of the flooring to make certain good adhesive transfer from sub floor to flooring is achieved. Roll flooring approx. 15-30 min after installation with a 75-100# roller if recommended by the flooring manufacturer. Push down raised edges approx. 30-60 min after installation.
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.
In case of accident, injury, spill or exposure, see SDS sheet for information. Consult technical data sheet at for updated information.
This adhesive will maintain its integrity and performance even when higher levels of moisture are present. While adhesive can withstand up to 8#/24 hrs/1,000 SF (Calcium Chloride Test) and 85% RH (in-situ probe) of moisture, it does not qualify as a moisture inhibitor. Please see below for recommended sealers if a moisture barrier is required. Not suitable for areas with excessive topical moisture (i.e. melting snow, repeated flooding, pressure washing) or extreme horizontal shear forces; use R-Series adhesives under these circumstances.
