ADHESIVE QUICK CHECK CHART
Use of Adhesives and Remediation Membranes
American Biltrite’s position regarding the use of adhesives and remediation membranes for its flooring products is fairly simple. In order
to achieve the highest performance of our flooring products, extensive research was done on the performance of the products prior to
making these available to the market.
We also ran extensive tests, including pilot floor testing, climate change exposition and heavy rolling load to ensure that we minimize
any problematic situation that would result from our recommendations.
For these reasons, we will support our flooring products and the adhesives we have listed on our Quick Check Chart for the applications
they are intended for.
You can also refer to our document titled “Remediation Systems for All American Biltrite Flooring Products” found on our website.
All other adhesives and remediation membranes are the responsibility of the user.
We will not recognize any claim attributed to an adhesive failure if our recommendations are not followed either for the type of adhesive
or the intended application.
Please note that technical web site documents prevail.
