COTE A985 ENCAPSULATOR™

Adhesive Residue Encapsulator
Product overview

Product previously known as Encap-Cote


COTE A985 ENCAPSULATOR is an acrylic polymer compound designed to isolate adhesive residues and old “cutback” stains that remain after removal and would affect the bond of the new flooring installation. Before installing floor covering systems, COTE A985 ENCAPSULATOR provides a clean layer to promote better adhesive bonds. It is solvent-free; low VOC, and contains an antimicrobial system for enhanced resistance to mold and mildew.

COTE A985 ENCAPSULATOR is designed and warranted for use only in conjunction with acrylic-based adhesives manufactured by Bostik, Inc.
