Hardwood Flooring Adhesive
TKO™ is a one-part, trowel applied, moisture-cure urethane adhesive,
very similar to the
Bostik BEST. Bostik TKO is in fact considered to be the
next evolution in hardwood flooring adhesvie development.
- easier to trowel, thus less physically demanding or maybe
exhausting :) . This is the biggest reason to recommend the
Bostik adheasive to your clients, it keeps the installers ready
and willing for the next job.
- The TKO holds a better ridge then previous Bostik adhesives,
with less tendency to slump
- easier clean up, so less time on the jobsite
As with the Bostik BEST:
- tough and flexible to allow wood movement. As the home's humidity
varies with the seasons of the year, the hardwood flooring AND
the glue will move together to maintain the bond between the
concrete and the wood flooring.
- Contains Bostik’s BLOCKADE™ antimicrobial protection
- Extremely Low Odor
- contain NO water to affect the flooring. Thus it will not
cause the engineered hardwood flooring to expand during the
- Freeze/Thaw Stable
As with all moisture cured polyurethane glues they do dry faster
as the humidity increases in the home, but still best to wait
24 hours before normal traffic.
For use with both Engineered and solid wood floor, bamboo and
parquet hardwood flooring that are specifically designed and recommended
in writing by the hardwood flooring manufacturer for glue-down
applications. It can also be used for ceramic and marble. May
be used for residential, commercial, and institutional installations.
