Floor laying put into practice
Installation system 2: bonding with Botament® K 572 roll-on adhesive
Botament® K 572 is a low-emission roll-on adhesive for LVT coverings in plank or tile format that has truly earned its good reputation. Extensive, practice-based tests based on industry standards carried out both in laboratories and on sites have established clearly visible and measurable advantages of Botament® K 572 when compared with adhesion methods that have been available up to now.
Botament® K 572 can be applied in a more ergonomic way, i.e. standing up, using a short pile velour roller. This innovative working method optimises installation output by accelerating the working progress. What’s more, this innovative roll-on adhesive is the preferred choice for applicators as it doesn’t put any strain on backs or knees!
With a long open time in excess of two hours it is easily possible to apply around 50 m² of roll-on adhesive in one go. Thanks to the low layer quantity of just 200g/m² that needs to be applied, adhesive compression under loading is prevented. Priming of the areas to be bonded becomes obsolete.
Botament® K 572 meets all standard requirements (in accordance with DIN 14259) as regards mechanical performance of adhesives. The required peel strength of 1.0 N/mm for example is improved 2 ½ times over, which means a shear strength of 0.5 N/mm² is clearly met. At the same time, the dimensional change after several cycles inside the heating cabinet lies within the specification margin of 0.2 %.
