640 EUROSTAR SPECIAL

640

Fast-bonding adhesive with a longer open time and longer final adhesive force than the 540 Eurosafe Special for bonding PVC floor coverings in sheets, slats and tiles, cushion vinyl and carpet with a PVC backing. Also suitable for bonding flat floor coverings, such as rubber floor coverings in strips (including Noraplan). 'Wet', 'semi-wet' and 'dry' bonding is possible with this adhesive, the choice depends on the application and circumstances. Also suitable for use on ships where IMO is required. Thanks to EMICODE EC 1PLUS (very low emissions) also suitable for BREEAM projects. Suitable for indoor use.

Remarks : 

Technical information and safety data sheets of any laying materials and floor coverings used must be observed!
Allow floorings to air condition in the rooms before laying. The coverings must be relaxed and laid flat.
During the setting phase, the direct influence of heat/solar radiation, dynamic and point loads must be avoided.

Do not weld the coverings until the following day at the earliest.

In order to minimise residual impressions as far as possible, resilient floor coverings should always be placed in the wet adhesive bed and immediately rubbed down well to completely crush the adhesive ridges. If the insertion time is exceeded, during which the adhesive grooves can still be completely squashed, standing grooves remain which can mark the top side of thin coverings or be squashed under point loads. This leads to visible deformations in the floor covering structure. The work progress is to be set up in such a way that a flash-off time, at wetting of the reverse side of the flooring is guaranteed, is not exceeded. With regard to such markings any claims arising therefrom are excluded.

In the case of textile coverings, attention must be paid to the dimensional stability when exposed to moisture (shrinkage). When bonding textile coverings without fillers, a flash-off time of approx. 20 minutes must be observed to prevent the still wet adhesive from "sticking" into the back of the covering.

Wear protective gloves / eye protection.

* The mentioned values have been established in our laboratory and must be considered as guidelines in view of possible variations in climatic circumstances, subfloor compositions and layer thickness.

Consumption:
225 - 275 g/m².  

Substrate:
  • 640 Eurostar 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 levelling compound layer.
  • In advance always seek our technical data sheets. In doubt about the application ask for technical advice.


User manual:
  • In most cases, apply the adhesive with a fine-toothed adhesive comb (Eurocol 852 adhesive comb/toothed A2). Type of spreader depends on the type of floor covering and condition of the subfloor.
  • The adhesive can be used for wet, semi-wet, dry or contact bonding.
  • Under “normal” climatic conditions (20 °C and 65% humidity), wait for at least 10 minutes
  • Immediately after bonding roll the floor covering carefully. Sheet-ends and longitudinal joints are to be pressed firmly.
  • Rolling and pressing should be repeated after approx. 30 - 45 minutes.
  • Remove fresh adhesive spots immediately with water.
  • Clean tools with water immediately after use

Working conditions:
Required surrounding temperature : 18 - 23 °C.
Temperature for material and subfloor : min. 15° - max. 20 ºC.
Relative humidity : 40 - 80%.
