Application & Usage

Easy to trowel or apply with a paint roller. Recommended coverage is about 10-15 square meters per liter, to be adjusted according to actual floor condition. The coverage can be 15 square meters per liter on a dense, flat floor, or even more. Adhesive needs to be dry before the Modular Carpet installation. Adhesive color will change from white to transparent, as it dries. Drying time will depend on ambient conditions, such as temperature, humidity, airflow and floor material. Under a condition of high airflow, low humidity and over 15°C (59°F) temperature, the drying time will usually be less than 1 hour. Whereas the drying time will be slow at enclosed places with high humidity and low temperature.

Surface floor preparation

Surface Floor Type:

  • New floor surface
    Must be smooth, flat and dry.
  • Old floor surface
    Must be clear of paint, seals, grease, oil, adhesives and any harmful substances.

The floor must be hard, dry, smooth, flat, horizontal, intact, clean and free of harmful substances. The floor must be hard to prevent the carpet tiles from warping. Any old carpets, foreign matter or other resins on the floor should be cleared or scraped. If any grease, paint and so on, can be cleaned with cleaning agent; if the floor is not flat, should be repaired in time, also can be grinded by machine when large area.

Application preparation

Before the application of TX-500, should clean with broom and vacuum cleaner, remove all dusts on the floor. If there are many small holes in the floor, use the primer to repair. Apply the adhesive after the primer dry. It is necessary to detect the humidity and PH value of floor before application and should conform to the prescribed requirements. If not, should not apply the adhesive before any remedial measures.
