Regupol Acoustic Adhesive and Damp Proof Membrane

Regupol adhesive 46-101

REGUPOL adhesive 46-101 Acoustic Adhesive

REGUPOL adhesive 46-101 represents the very latest development in Hybrid Polymer technology and has been formulated to give the highest levels of performance in terms of bond strength, versatility across many combinations of materials, improved acoustic performance in acoustic installations, resistance to stresses, fast curing speed and ease and cleanliness of use.

Subjected to the most intensive testing and development process, REGUPOL adhesive 46-101 represents the premium solution for bonding of acoustic flooring products and materials, by means of enhancing the acoustic performance of the entire system.

REGUPOL adhesive 46-101 should be used to bond REGUPOL acoustic underlays to subfloors by applying the adhesive to the subfloor and laying the underlay into the wet adhesive. The floor finish should be bonded to the REGUPOL by means of applying the adhesive onto the REGUPOL and laying the flooring finish onto the wet adhesive.

Adhesive to sub-floor:
Adhesive must be allowed to reach room temperature before application. Apply the adhesive to the surface by means of the notched trowels described above. Do not apply more than can be covered with REGUPOL or the flooring in 30 minutes. Place the REGUPOL or flooring into the adhesive layer and consolidate the bond by means of pressing. Adhesive should be allowed to cure for a minimum of at least 24 hours before accepting foot traffic or applying second layer. Once installation area is laid, press immediately in two directions (at right angles to each other). This is to remove any trapped air and ensure good all-over adhesive contact.
*Trowel sizes: use B1 for smooth floors and best coverage / B3 or B6 for less even floors and a higher bead height.

REGUPOL adhesive 43-105 Acrylic Adhesive

for Vinyl and Linoleum

REGUPOL adhesive 43-105 is a solvent free acrylic emulsion-based adhesive, for bonding many sound insulation materials to common sub-floors and many floor finishes to the insulation. This easy to spread adhesive, with a long open time, provides early tack and minimum slip, quickly building to a strong permanent bond. It is non-staining and has excellent resistance to plasticiser migration.

• For best results a minimum temperature of 18C should be maintained for the installation.
• An appropriate V notched trowel should be used to apply the adhesive evenly.
• For vinyl and other smooth backed floorcoverings, a 1.5mm x 5.0mm or A2 trowel is recommended, whilst a 2.0mm x 6.0mm or B1 trowel should be selected for floorcoverings with a more profiled back. Trowels should be cleaned after use withwater whilst the adhesive is still wet. Apply the adhesive evenly to an area of such a size that the floorcovering can be laid whilst the adhesive is receptive and gives good transfer. On absorbent surfaces lay the floorcovering immediately or in the case of tiles after 10-15 minutes (this reduces the slip). On non-absorbent surfaces allow the adhesive to develop a tack or, for sheet goods, employ a “double drop” technique to reduce the waiting time before laying. It is recommended that the adhesive bonding the underlayment to the subfloor should be allowed to cure before bonding the final floor finish to the underlayment, ideally the underlayment should be left overnight and the final floor finish applied the following day.
• To reduce the effect of shadowing on some vinyl’s, it is recommended that the adhesive is smoothed out whilst wet with a paint roller that has been pre-wetted with adhesive. Once installation area is laid, roll immediately in two directions (at right angles to each other) with a 68kg roller (on carpets use a weighted glider). This is to remove any trapped air and ensure good all-over adhesive contact.
• A second rolling (or gliding) is recommended approximately 1 hour later to ensure a strong bond is established.

REGUPOL barrier 99-201

Moisture Vapour Suppressant

REGUPOL barrier 99-201 is a ready-for-use, one part, water-based moisture vapour suppressant and DPM.

• Designed to work as a DPM/moisture vapour suppressant prior to the application of a full coverage of REGUPOL adhesive.
• Water based. Low VOC.
• Easy to apply – generally primer less* application and single component. No mixing required.
• Suitable for heated concrete and sand cement screeds (provided the surface temperature does not exceed 27oC in accordance with BS 8203 and BS 5325).
• Extremely fast drying – as quick as 30 minutes, depending on environmental conditions.
• Colour change technology to demonstrate when the product is ready for adhesive application.
• High bond strength to subfloors.

When used as directed, the product is a surface moisture vapour suppressant developed to suppress residual construction moisture and rising damp in cementitious subfloors including power floated concrete and sand/cement screeds. Consideration should be given to the fact that if a self-levelling compound is required it will be below the DPM layer and should be suitable for this environment. Do not lay self-levelling compound over REGUPOL barrier 99-201.
REGUPOL barrier 99-201 is designed to work with a full surface coating of REGUPOL adhesive as part of the installation of acoustic flooring systems.
Not recommended for application onto Gypsum based screeds, Anhydrite (calcium sulphate), bitumen or resin subfloors.
* Floors which are dusty, or excessively dry must be treated with a suitable primer before using REGUPOL barrier 99-201.
