F Ball With Another Innovative Flooring Product

THE Flooring Show saw F BALL AND CO introduce Styccobond F5 fast-track vinyl adhesive, designed for maximum flexibility with a range of vinyl flooring.
The product’s fibre-reinforced formulation reportedly has excellent initial grab and fast drying properties. Tiles can be placed immediately, but it is advisable to allow the adhesive to dry for just five minutes, reducing the risk of tiles sliding. The adhesive also offers an extended open time of up to 90 minutes.
Styccobond F5 is said to be suitable for use over structurally sound, smooth, dry, absorbent subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screeds, plywood, hardboard and Stopgap smoothing underlayments. Once F5 is installed, the area can receive foot traffic immediately, says F Ball.
The product is recommended for use in conjunction with fast-drying Stopgap F78 waterproof surface membrane and Stopgap Fast-Track 30 smoothing underlayment, which allow for subfloor preparation and flooring installation in three hours, it is claimed.
F5 comes in a 10-litre bucket with a coverage rate of around 5.5sq m a litre with a Styccobond A2 V notched trowel, depending on subfloor condition and absorbency.
