Spray adhesives address carpet and resilient floors

Ultrabond Spray RFA and Ultrabond Spray CTA, two new spray adhesives from Mapei, have been created for carpet and resilient flooring installations.

Designed to replace trowel-applied adhesives, these aerosolized, water-based, high-performance, acrylic adhesives allow installers to stand upright during the application process. RFA is intended for use with resilient flooring, while CTA is designed for use with carpet tiles.

Both sprays are said to feature high moisture resistance for bond durability, superior tack for secure floor placement, and extended coverage when compared to trowel-applied adhesives — one can of either spray is the equivalent of one gallon of traditional adhesive.

The sprays have a quick drying time that permits immediate foot traffic, and their bond performance is equal to traditional adhesives, but the quicker, easier installation method uses less material in less time – saving time, money… and your knees, the company says.
