Epoxy Resin Adhesive

Epoxy Resin is a two-part mix. Both components should be mixed together with a drill and paddle to a smooth consistency and the contents poured out within 5 minutes of mixing time. If left within the container the resin will harden inside 15 minutes; on the floor you have up to 1 hour working time.


Recommended for areas subject to moisture and high temperature. Any areas under question consult your supplier.

Using the correct tools

When using our adhesives it is important to use an appropriate adhesive trowel or roller, along with the proper Karndean Designflooring adhesive.


Underfloor Heating

It is possible to install Karndean products over floors incorporating underfloor heating, but these must be insulated to ensure the surface temperature throughout the installation does not exceed 80°F. The heating must be switched off 48 hours before, during, and for 48 hours following the installation, then gradually increase to working temperature.
