We recommend the use of Karndean Designflooring adhesives to install our products. We keep a range of adhesives in stock, each of which is suitable for heavy wear use areas in both domestic and commercial locations; level, absorbent, sound surfaces; and underfloor heating systems.
Our K-91AR adhesive is suitable for most applications. It is a resin-free, solvent free, tack set adhesive.
Karndean DrySet is a roll-on, solvent free, easy to use advanced aqueous adhesive.
Karndean K-Spray provides an alternative application format to traditional methods.
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 as soon as possible to maximize working time. If left within the container, the resin will harden within 15 minutes.
Using the correct tools
When using our adhesives it is important to use an appropriate adhesive trowel or roller, along with the correct/suitable Karndean Designflooring adhesive.
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 the working temperature.
