Encap-Cote™

Adhesive Residue Encapsulator
Product overview

Encap-Cote™ is a light-colored, high-strength acrylic polymer compound formulated to isolate old cutback stains and other adhesive residues that would discolor or affect the bond of the new flooring installation. Black asphalt-based cutback adhesive is highly reactive with vinyl back flooring and must be completely removed until there are no remaining trowel ridges or continuous film.

Encap-Cote™ can be used to isolate the remaining permanent stain after the cutback has been removed. Prior to the installation of floor covering systems, Encap-Cote™ provides a clean surface for better adhesive bonds. It is solvent-free, low VOC, and contains an antimicrobial system for enhanced resistance to mold and mildew.

Encap-Cote™ is designed and warranted for use only in conjunction with adhesives manufactured by Bostik, Inc.
