More Info

This is a tried and tested product, now used for many of our matting systems in different applications – instructions for use are as follows:

Application of Adhesive to Floor Bond

1. Floor Finish – to obtain the optimum bond and minimum usage of adhesive your floor should be as flat as possible (ie not tamped finish – power trowel is advised on new surfaces). For older surfaces that are rough, these may need to be ground using concrete grinding equipment to attain a flat surface if too rough (remember, the rougher the surface more glue will be used to maintain maximum contact with the matting).

2. Floor Porosity – to reduce the absorption of adhesive into the floor, it may be neccessary to seal the surface with a proprietary concrete sealer prior to bonding. If the floor has a soft finish concrete that is easily scuffed, it is likely to be more porous – an inexpensive method of sealing is to use standard PVA adhesive diluted to suit!

3. Dust – the floors should be dust free – we suggest they are vacuumed prior to glue application.

4. Dampness – the floors should be dry before application, slight dampness is not a problem but should be avoided if at all possible as this can make the adhesive foam slightly. It should not be applied to visibly damp or wet floors. Adhesive should not be used below 5°C.

5. Rubber Mat Preparation – the underside of the mats should be cleaned with light solvent to remove any mould release residue – light sanding will also produce a rough surface which will provide an even better mechanical bond to the mat.

6. Pre-Cut Mats – pre-cut the mats prior to applying adhesive, this means that you can continue to lay down adhesive continually to ensure the pot does not start to go off in the middle of the job. Cut mats tight to each other (see our standard mat cutting instructions).

7. Adhesive Application – using (ie) a short fibre paint roller with long handle, apply adhesive starting at the back of the stable, putting down adhesive for one mat at a time.

8. Lay Mat – lay the first mat in position tight to the walls.

9. Edge Bond – using a small brush, apply a thin coat of adhesive to the matting edge with the next mat to be laid.

10. Next Mat – apply adhesive to the floor for the next mat and drop mat into place, pushing up tight to the first mat edge that has been brush coated with adhesive. Remove any excess adhesive on the seams with a pallet knife (returning adhesive to the pot for re-use).

11. Tight to Wall – by ensuring the mats fit tight wall to wall as they are laid, all seams should be pushed tight together and where full contact is made with the adhesive coated edges, bonding will occur.

12. Curing Time – although the adhesive will go off relatively quickly as it contains a special accelerator, we suggest you keep off the mats for 24hrs before finishing off.

13. Finishing Off – in the event of there being small gaps between the mats or along the mat to wall line, a standard black sealant (ie gutter sealant) can be used as a gap filler (this type of sealant stays flexible so will expand and contract with the mats as temperature changes).

14. WAIT – until the sealant is dry (normally 2 – 4 hours) – then the stable can be used.

NB

If your floor is damp when adhesive is laid, the adhesive will foam up slightly – this does no affect the adhesion but does act as a gap filler, so tends to fill or partly fill the underside grooves on the mats and may extrude slightly between seams.

Notice

SMELL – the adhesive will smell while it is going off, but once cured is completely inert and non-smelling. If a light solvent is used to clean the underside of the mats this will also dissipate quickly, but should be applied in the open with plenty of air circulation (read the instructions for the solvent first – simple solvents such as White Spirit can normally be applied without breathing masks, but stronger solvents may require breathing protection).

When applied properly, this adhesive gives a very good chemical and mechanical bond of rubber mat to concrete surfaces.+

STABLE-GUM

Description
GENERAL          Stable-Gum is a neutral solvent-free, single component, moisture-curing tile adhesive based on polyether polyols.

Stable Gum is MDI based, contains no volatile monomer and is TDI free
 USES                 Stable Gum is used as an adhesive in the installation of safety surfaces using rubber tiles.

Stable Gum is normally used on black stable tiles. Stable Gum Clear is a similar product that is clear and can be used on coloured tiles.

Stable Gum contains a special accelerator for fast cure whilst minimising the amount of foam generation.
Application

COVERAGE/USAGE               The usage rate of the material will be very dependent on the type of tile and the method of use and is normally in the range of 1.2-1.8 m²/kg.

METHOD of APPLICATION    Tiles/Mats should be laid on sound concrete or tarmac that is well drained. Stable Gum should be applied to the feet and the edges of tiles that do not have flat bottoms.

Stable Gum based mixtures should not be applied to wet surfaces (i.e. surfaces where there are visible signs of moisture such as obviously damp patches). Stable Gum can be used after rain when the surface has visibly dried.
Storage

Store in a cool, dry place, indoors and avoid unnecessary opening of containers. Do not add any other materials to this product without written permission from the manufacturer.

Once opened Stable Gum will start to cure and a skin will form. Partly used containers should be resealed immediately and re-used as quickly as possible.

Used Containers

Treatment/Decontamination             Rinse thoroughly with a strong aqueous detergent solution and LEAVE PERMANENTLY OPEN.  The reaction of isocyanates with water leads to the formation of carbon dioxide, which can result in pressure build-up in closed containers.  This treatment converts any liquid residue into an inert solid.  It is advisable to superimpose a ‘Decontaminated’ label after treatment.
Health & Safety

The recommendations made in the material safety data sheet (MSDS) for this product should be followed at all times.
