250 - 350 g/m², depending on the back of the floor covering and condition of the subfloor.

  • 540 Eurosafe Special is suitable for any type of subfloor that has a good tensile and compression strength.
  • The subfloor should also be even, clean, permanently dry and free from grease and dirt, according to the requirements of BS 8203 or DIN 18 365.
  • When installing on impervious subfloors apply a 2 mm layer of levelling compound.
  • In advance always seek our technical data sheets. In doubt about the application ask for technical advice.

User manual:
  • Apply the adhesive with a fine-notched adhesive spreader (Eurocol spreader no. 852/A2). Type of spreader depends on the floor covering and condition of the subfloor.
  • When installing impervious floor covering keep a waiting time of approx. 15 minutes.
  • Prevent that the adhesive strips show through and avoid impressions caused by a concentrated force on the floor covering by rolling the adhesive strips immediately after application of the adhesive (A2 spreader). In this way the application time of the floor covering is reduced tot max. 10 minutes. Thereafter apply the floor covering as soon as possible and roll carefully. An extended open time can lead to seams and disconnection. Before application contact the floor covering manufacturer or our technical department.
  • When installing polyolefin or polyurethane floor covering, wait until the top of the adhesive stripes have dried transparent.
  • Roll the floor covering carefully. Sheet-ends and longitudinal joints are to be pressed firmly.
  • Rolling and pressing should be repeated after approx. 30 minutes.
  • Remove fresh adhesive spots immediately with water.

Working conditions:
Required surrounding temperature : 18 - 23 °C.
Temperature for material and subfloor : min. 15° - max. 20 ºC.
