Bostik, Inc., a world leader in specialty adhesives and installation systems for building construction, has produced a new video that demonstrates the superior characteristics of its revolutionary new product, Climb™.
The many benefits offered by Climb™ a one-component, easy gunning, non-sag adhesive that is specifically formulated for installation of hardwood flooring planks on interior, on or above-grade walls as well as stair tread caps and risers, are showcased in the video.
According to Eric Kurtz, Bostik’s Market Manager – Hardwood, Resilient & Surface Preparation Systems, “Climb™ has a superior green grab (grab strength while wet) making it ideal for any vertical application in addition to tread caps and risers. With its low VOC formulation (as calculated per SCAQMD Rule 11680) Climb™ may also contribute towards LEED credits.”
While the Climb™ formula cures quickly to form a tenacious bond to wood, it is designed not to bond with most finishes on pre-finished flooring, making it easy to remove from the finish even after cure. Once cured, Climb™ remains tough yet flexible for extreme durability, helps reduce stair squeaking, and reduces the sound of footsteps on the stairs. Additionally, Climb™ has 0% solvents and low odor.
