Affinity Series 3000 - Multi-Purpose Adhesive Specifications

DESCRIPTION:

Affinity Series 3000 Better Multi-Purpose Adhesive is a quick grabbing adhesive designed for installing carpet in a direct glue down or double glue down application and installing fibrous felt back sheet flooring.  It is recommended for the installation of the following carpet backings:  Action-Bac, Sponge-Rubber, Latex Unitary, High Density Foam, Latex Foam, and the majority of carpet backings found in the market place today. Affinity Series 3000 IS NOT APPROVED FOR USE WITH CARPET WITH AXMINSTER BACKING (refer to Signature Series DS 902). It is not recommended for vinyl-backed carpet, cushion backed vinyl, urethane unitary backed carpet, outdoor applications or where excessive moisture or hydrostatic pressure is present.

While the adhesive is designed to meet the challenges of poorly ventilated areas, sufficient air exchanges are still required to ensure proper curing of any latex-based adhesive.

ffinity Series 3000 Better Adhesive, manufactured

by Royal, is LEED compliant and is also compliant with South Coast Air Quality Management District Rule 1168.

E.Q. 4.1: Low-Emitting Materials: Adhesives & Sealants

M.R. 5.2: Regional Materials: 20% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured Regionally

Affinity Series 3000 Better also qualifies for the Carpet & Rug Institutes Green Label Plus Program. This is a third party certification with the most stringent VOC regulations in the country. 100% of all Raw Materials used to manufacture this adhesive are Extracted, Processed and Manufactured Regionally.

*LEED points are based on all materials used on a project.

 

SUB-FLOOR PREPARATION:

Follow all manufacturer’s recommendations and industry standards regarding sub-floor preparation. Moisture tests are required on all concrete sub-floors regardless of grade level, if freshly poured  or classified as an older slab. Moisture testing should be performed by ASTM F1869 Calcium Chloride Tests with moisture levels not to exceed five (5) pounds per Twenty-Four (24) hours per one thousand (1000) square feet or, ASTM F2170 In Situ Relative Humidity Test with moisture levels not to exceed eighty (80) percent. Additional information with regard to these tests and results can be obtained through My Way’s Technical Service Department.

 

INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS:

Subfloor must be clean, dry, smooth and free of any contamination, which may interfere with the adhesive bond.  Seal all chalky, very porous floors with PARABOND® M-620.

Follow floor covering manufacturer’s recommendations regarding layout, cutting, seaming and maintenance.

While the adhesive is designed to meet the challenges of poorly ventilated areas, sufficient air exchanges are still required to ensure proper curing of any latex-based adhesive.

Spread adhesive with the recommended notched trowel leaving ridges of sufficient height to establish complete transfer to back of floor covering.  Trowel sizes may need to be adjusted due to subfloor porosity, floor covering backing and open time requirements.

Lay most floor coverings into adhesive within 30 minutes. Lift floor covering periodically to check adhesive transfer to the backing.  100% adhesives transfer is required to promote maximum adhesive bond.

Roll carpet using the floor covering manufacturer’s recommended roller shortly after installation. Seams require seam sealing.

7. Follow the Carpet and Rug Institute Carpet Installation Standard  2009 where appropriate

Affinity Series 6000 - Pressure Sensitive Specifications

DESCRIPTION:

Affinity Series 6000 Pressure Sensitive is a premium acrylic emulsion, with excellent performance and environmentally friendly features.  6000 is releasable, non-flammable, non-hazardous and water resistant.  It provides a strong, long lasting bond.  6000 is designed for the installation of dimensionally stable vinyl-backed carpet tiles and vinyl tile & vinyl plank in a releasable application.  This adhesive can also be used to install cushion to recommended substrates in double glue down applications.  Due to its pressure sensitive characteristics, 6000 eliminates concern about installing a non-porous backed floor covering over a non-porous substrate.

VINYL TILE/PLANK / CARPET TILE DIRECTIONS:

Refer to all manufacturers’ recommendations prior to installation to determine suitability of all materials to be used, approved substrates, sub-floor preparation, etc.

Subfloor must be clean, dry, smooth and free of any contamination, which may interfere with the adhesive bond.

Where subfloor is extremely porous, adhesive absorption may be in question, therefore it is recommended that the subfloor be primed with Parabond® M-620 Primer.

Refer to all floor-covering manufacturers’ recommendations regarding layout, cutting, seaming and maintenance.

Spread adhesive using appropriate trowel (Rough or overly porous substrates could require the use of a 1/16” square notch trowel with tile or plank).  Use the dry installation method in “tile over tile” applications and for situations requiring a releasable installation (carpet tile, double stick).  If carpet tiles are installed “wet”, a permanent bond may result.

Roll floor covering as per manufacturers’ recommendations.  Typical applications require rolling with a 100# 3-section roller in both directions immediately after flooring is placed.

Do not wet clean floor covering for a minimum of 14 days.  This will allow the adhesive to properly cure.

Once adhesive turns clear, floor covering must be placed within 2-4 hours MAXIMUM with carpet tiles and within 2 hours for vinyl plank.
