A temperature tolerant, water-based pressure sensitive adhesive for bonding vinyl floorcoverings. It is designed for use in conservatories, areas where floor to ceiling windows are installed and other areas where floorcoverings have to be tolerant of extreme temperature variations. It gives a strong initial tack and high bond strength.

The mixing of the two unique components maximizes the high strength of the adhesive and makes it suitable for use in service conditions where temperatures can fluctuate between -20°C and +60°C, in accordance with floorcovering manufacturers’ recommendations.

It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating systems. The product provides an extremely strong water resistant bond enabling application in areas subject to water/ high humidity when used in conjunction with a suitable smoothing underlayment.


  • Very high tack and drying times from 20 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor.
  • Fast build-up of bond strength.
  • Water resistant, suitable for wet room environments.
  • Easy to apply.


  • Suitable for securing a wide range of PVC floorcoverings in both tile and sheet format. When installing sheet floorcoverings, install while the adhesive is wet; the subfloor must be absorbent to allow drying of the adhesive.
  • It can be applied to structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/ cement screed, calcium sulfate screed and plywood. Sound flooring grade asphalt must be skimmed with a minimum of 3 mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.
  • The adhesive can be applied directly to STOPGAP epoxy waterproof surface membranes and other non-absorbent subfloors where the surface finish is smooth enough to permit the installation of resilient floorcoverings.
