Hardwood flooring adhesives: Smart innovations

Bostik's hardwood flooring adhesives are suitable for all installations where wood flooring can be bonded. Whether you are working with solid or engineered wood, our adhesives offer a range of benefits to reduce risk and improve performance.

  • Strength: Engineered for superior adhesion even on very wide wood planks.
  • Flexibility: Adhesive systems provide tough, flexible bonds with a variety of subfloor substrates including; concrete, plywood, and fibre cement sheets.
  • Elastomeric: Elastomeric properties allow adhesives to move with the wood as it expands and contracts naturally over the life of the floor.
  • Sound-dampening properties: Several of our highest performing adhesives create a noise reduction barrier over the substrate providing excellent sound-reduction performance that typically outperforms ¼" cork underlay. Eliminating cork saves time and money during the installation process.
  • Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology: Patent-pending, recycled crumb rubber spacers help maintain proper adhesive membrane thickness during the installation process while also providing acoustical control benefits necessary to meet today's building codes.
  • Moisture resistance: Moisture vapour protection prevents the cupping or buckling of hardwood planks, and offers a lifetime warranty for unlimited moisture vapour protection. 
  • Antimicrobial: Most products have antimicrobial properties to inhibit the growth of mould and mildew on the surface of the cured adhesive.

Bostik's revolutionary hardwood adhesive technology offers unlimited moisture vapour protection, high bond strength, zero VOC's and ease of cleaning before and after cure. 

  • Polyurethane technology: Bostik polyurethane adhesives are staples of the industry offering the quality, strength, and durability you have come to expect from the market leader.
  • Low VOC adhesive: Bostik places a strong emphasis on formulating adhesives with benefits such as low VOCs, emissions and odour without compromising bond strength and long-term durability.
