Two characteristics of MAPEI's new Ultrabond spray adhesives for carpet tile and resilient flooring have eased the work of floor covering installers, according to the company.

The aerosolized, water-based acrylic adhesives are spray-applied, which allows installers to do their work standing up instead of kneeling and to complete the job faster than when using trowel-applied adhesives. The higher performance levels of the Ultrabond spray adhesives in relation to moisture resistance—0 lbs. (4,54 kg) at 90% RH—allow installations to be completed sooner than with traditional adhesives.

“We believe Ultrabond Spray 360 and Ultrabond Spray 810 will provide fast-track installation solutions for professional flooring contractors who must overcome moisture issues and short deadlines on the jobsite,” said Jeff Johnson, business manager for floor covering installation systems at MAPEI.

Ultrabond Spray 360 is designed for the installation of solid vinyl tile, luxury vinyl tile, vinyl composition tile (VCT) and vinyl plank. Ultrabond Spray 810 can be used for the installation of vinyl-backed carpet tile, providing tack for secure flooring placement. Both products’ unique application method provides bond performance while using considerably less material in much less time, while the high moisture resistance promotes bond durability, according to the company.
