Consumer Hardwood Flooring Adhesives
Bostik is proud of its reputation for developing innovative solutions for residential hardwood flooring installations. More than two decades ago we pioneered the world's first moisture cure, polyurethane adhesive for bonding hardwood flooring to concrete slabs. Today, our line of high performance adhesives is the most specified by architects and preferred by contractors for all types of installations.
Our adhesive solutions make hardwood flooring installations faster, easier and smarter.
From solid and engineered hardwoods to bamboo, Bostik technologies are designed to improve durability, acoustic properties and comfort to enhance living spaces. As wood becomes ever more popular, we continue to innovate cutting-edge technologies like AXIOS™ Tri-Linking™ polymer technology to meet the demands of your flooring projects.
Hardwood flooring adhesives: Smart benefits
Bostik hardwood flooring adhesives are suitable for all installations where wood flooring can be bonded. Whether you’re 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 fiber 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 underlayment. 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 accoustical control benefits necessary to meet today's building codes.
- Moisture resistance: Moisture vapor protection prevents the cupping or buckling of hardwood planks, and products that contain our AXIOS™ Tri-Linking™ polymer technology offer a lifetime warranty for unlimited moisture vapor protection.
- Antimicrobial: Most products have antimicrobial properties to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew on the surface of the cured adhesive.
