Free Conductive Flooring Adhesive is designed for the
installation of static control commercial grade PVC and
Rubber flooring. UZIN is a
non-flammable, white, non-staining water based electrically conductive adhesive that is resistant to
plasticizer migration and can be applied using common tools
and techniques over a variety of subfloor surfaces. This
adhesive is low odor and contains zero calculated VOC's (based on
solvents used), which makes it ideal for use anywhere odor
is a concern. This product further conforms to California
clean air requirements
as specified in SCAQMD Rule 1168.
SUBSTRATE REQUIREMENTS: HVAC must be in operation. It's important that all products to be used in the installation be preconditioned at a temperature between 65o and 85o F for at least 48 hours prior to beginning the installation and permanently thereafter. Follow the instructions shipped with the flooring product.
Any substrate onto which flooring is to be installed should be carefully inspected to assure that proper adhesive bonding will be achieved. Proper adhesion requires that the surface be clean, dry and free from dust, paint, old floor finishes, existing adhesives or any other flooring material. Do not use this adhesive on any substrate that has been chemically cleaned without thoroughly pretesting. Adhesive coverage and spread rates may vary according to the substrate type and application method.
Moisture testing is required prior to any installation of United SCP flooring products on concrete substrates. Testing should be done per ASTM F1869 Calcium Chloride Moisture Emission Test (with the maximum level being 3 lbs. (5 pounds with approval from United) per 1000 s.f / 24 hour period. Test concrete surface for pH. Results must be between 6 and 10. Documented moisture and pH testing is required for validation of all United SCP floor covering Warranties. Do not install United SCP ESD Flooring over gypsum based patching or leveling compounds.
INSTALLATION: Follow all United SCP flooring installation recommendations and guidelines for proper flooring installation. Please see the following downloads for specifics. Titanium Tile Installation, Titanium Sheet Vinyl Installation.
Do NOT spread an area that is too large to realistically work. When installing over non porous substrates allow the spread adhesive to very slightly dry until the surface becomes tacky to the touch (slight transfer to the fingertip). Drying time will vary according to temperature, substrate porosity and other environmental variables.
When installing over porous substrates install the flooring into the adhesive while wet (moderate transfer to the fingertip). Install flooring immediately after the required open time and roll floor in all directions using a 100 pound vinyl flooring roller. NOT following the recommended methods for installation will sacrifice important bonding properties.
Trowel size: A 23/80 V Notch trowel blade is included with each pail of adhesive. This blade should be changed with each fresh pail. This blade is slipped into a specialty Wolff Brand Adhesive Trowel Handle (available from United SCP). Keep trowel blades free of carbon fiber buildup during use. Typical Coverage: 120 to 150 square feet per gallon for Vinyl, 80 SF per gallon for Carpet. Note: standard 1/16 x 1/16 trowels may shadow thru tile installation.
Grounding: Ground this adhesive and flooring every 2,000 sf. Click Here for the recommended grounding method.
Clean up: This is a water soluble product when wet. Cleanup of tools and flooring may be accomplished with warm soapy water WHEN WET. Dried adhesive may require the use of a safety solvent.
Storage and Handling: Containers should be kept tightly closed. This product is sensitive to freezing. Protect from freezing. Unopened containers stored at temperatures of 60 to 75 degrees F have a shelf life expectancy of 12 months.
