Museum Enlists Bostik’s Greenforce®

A high-performance wood flooring adhesive for long-term durability

The National Veterans Memorial Museum in Columbus, Ohio, was constructed to not only honor the contributions of our veterans, but also to educate all visitors about the consummate value of their service. The NVMM is now able to share with all its guests, valuable information concerning the important role our servicemen and women have played throughout the history of the United States of America.

Installer Testimonial:
Tony Stalford, Commercial Flooring Installation Specialist, The Final Floor

"The biggest issue, was when we wanted to begin installing the parquet flooring within the building, the concrete was very wet, yet the air was very dry. We could not even begin until we brought in humidification machines to add some moisture to the air. On top of that, there was not one wall anywhere to be found within the entire structure! Greenforce® was clearly the right choice.”
