Hardwood Wall Plank & Tread Cap Adhesive
Bostik GreenForce™ is a high performance hardwood flooring adhesive and moisture control membrane all in one. With Bostik’s breakthrough AXIOS® Tri-Linking™ Polymer Technology, GreenForce™ maintains the superior long term durability and moisture protection properties of high-end urethane hardwood floor adhesive, but it is easier to spread and clean off of prefinished flooring, even after full cure.
GreenForce™ hardwood flooring adhesive has extremely low moisture vapor permeability and is not adversely affected by moisture. As a result, costly and time consuming concrete moisture testing is not required when the slab is properly prepared, dry to the touch and fully cured.
The elastomeric characteristics of GreenForce™ establish an anti-fracture membrane that can bridge cracks up to 1/8" (3mm), which can occur in the substrate prior to or after installation. This superior elasticity allows GreenForce™ adhesive to move with the floor as it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature over its lifetime.
GreenForce™ also comes with Bostik’s BLOCKADE® antimicrobial protection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold or mildew on the surface of the cured membrane. The cured membrane resists stains caused by mold.
Bostik GreenForce™ high performance adhesive may be used with all engineered hardwood flooring, solid hardwood flooring, bamboo, cork, and parquet. GreenForce™ has no restrictions on board width or length. It may be used over all properly prepared substrates common to hardwood flooring installations including concrete, plywood, well-bonded vinyl/VCT and ceramic tile, cement backer board, gypsum underlayments (dry, above grade), cement patch/underlayments, radiant-heat flooring, and properly prepared terrazzo. GreenForce™ adhesive can also be used to install plywood as described, as well as ceramic tile, marble, and stone inlays for light commercial and/or residential applications.
