Titebond offers flooring installers the best of both worlds, with 771-Step Adhesive, Sound and Moisture Control System in the sensible .75-gallon pouch, packed four to a conventional plastic pail. Installers can carry the pail to the job site and still reap all the benefits of the pouch, including ease of application and reduced mess and waste.
Some flooring installers prefer to pour adhesive from a pail. Others prefer the convenience of applying adhesive from Titebond’s innovative pouch packaging. Now, they can have it both ways: Titebond offers its 771-Step Wood Flooring Adhesive in pouches, packed in the pails flooring installers are accustomed to carrying.
Although sold in the pail, the four .75-gallon pouches inside offer an innovative alternative to the traditional application method. Instead of scooting a pail across the floor as the installation progresses, the installer simply positions the pouches across the installation area based upon expected yield per pouch. (One pouch of Titebond 771-Step covers 49 square feet when used as an adhesive alone and 27 square feet when applied as an all-in-one system.) They make their way from pouch to pouch as the job proceeds.
The pouch is easy to open and less messy to apply. The installer merely snips the tail on the pouch, squeezes out the adhesive, then spreads and trowels it. Adhesive placement is precise, resulting in quicker, more uniform spreading.
The pouch size also reduces adhesive waste – and cost. The weather-resistant pouch packaging keeps the adhesive fresh, resulting in longer shelf life and easier spreading and troweling. In addition, the pouch size results in less unused product that would otherwise skin or go to waste.
Titebond 771-Step pouches in the pail are available at select Lowe’s stores, specialty flooring retailers and building supply stores. The product also is available in 20-oz. sausage packs and in conventional 3.5-gallon pails.
