Homogeneous sheet vinyl needs to be laid out in advance to allow the material to relax. This will stop any distortions from creating undue pressures on the adhesive (photo 1).
The epoxy adhesive needs to be mixed thoroughly. Never mix the remnants of one container with the remnants of another. Epoxy adhesives have a narrow margin of error when mixing. This is why it is so important to mix the entire contents of each unit of epoxy (photo 2).
For the first method, the adhesive is spread and the material is placed into the adhesive, rolled and pulled out of the adhesive. It is then allowed to stand open to allow the adhesive to develop body (photo 5).
