Adhesive & Glue for Wood Floors in Atlanta2024-03-08T21:57:15+00:00

Rustic Floor Supply provides a variety of flooring adhesive and glue options at our Atlanta, Georgia location. Flooring adhesive and glue are integral components of any flooring project, irrespective of the flooring type being installed. These products are indispensable for securing solid hardwood, engineered hardwood, and lvp flooring in place.

It is paramount to choose the appropriate adhesive or glue for your specific project, as different types are tailored for use with distinct materials. For instance, you’ll need a particular glue for wood, while another type may be necessary for SPC or LVP. Furthermore, the width of your floor planks should be factored into the selection of glue, as wider planks might necessitate a different type to mitigate the risk of movement.

Silane or Polymer Glues

Polymer and Silane-based glues represent some of the newer choices for wood flooring adhesives. These products have gained popularity among contractors for their ease of application and straightforward clean-up. Polymer-based glues exhibit robust strength and can endure fluctuations in moisture without breaking or shearing. On the other hand, silane-based glues offer a secure hold while accommodating seasonal movement. They come in various sizes, including sausage tubes, 2.5-gallon buckets, and 3-gallon buckets, providing flexibility for different project requirements.

Silane or Polymer FAQ’s

The glue is so easy to use – does that mean it is not sticky?2024-03-08T16:41:38+00:00

No, just because it is easier to spread does not mean it is less sticky. The beauty of a Silane based glue for flooring is that is moves with the wood and is extremely sticky without ruining the wood flooring if it touches it.

Can these Silane glues work with hardwood, engineered and LVP floors?2024-03-08T16:42:35+00:00

Yes, the Silane glues we sell work for all the products that we sell.

What width does Silane based glues allow you to glue down?2024-03-08T16:42:21+00:00

Different glues allow for different widths. It is recommended to check the label and buy accordingly. Each of our glues has the width rating listed on their respective pages. Some of the glues allow unlimited width.

How do you clean Silane based glues?2024-03-08T16:42:06+00:00

It is recommended to clean the glue droppings/mess up within 45 min as it is not skinned over yeat and has yet to bond to anything. The easiest way to do this is with a damp cloth.

What is Saline Glue?2024-03-08T16:41:55+00:00

Silane glue is a very popular hardwood flooring glue that is considered “new” generation of glues. These glues offer no need to mix, dry fast and have awesome elasticity. Typically these glues have a skin time of 4-60 min and a full cure time of 18-24 hours. We recommend Silane glues from pallmann and loba as they work well in our climate to allow movement without sheering the glue to board bond.

Silane-based glues have an interesting history and versatile properties that have made them popular in various markets. Modified silane-based adhesives, initially developed in Japan during the 1980s, serve as an alternative to traditional polyurethane adhesives. These adhesives are well-regarded for their elastic characteristics and have gained recognition in both European and American markets.

Modified silane-based adhesives are one-component glues that undergo a curing process called polycondensation, which involves the emission of methanol. Once cured, these adhesives possess the strength and elasticity akin to elastomeric materials. There are two main types of modified silane adhesives: polyether-modified silanes and polyurethane-modified silanes, also known as hybrid polyurethanes. Polyether-modified silanes tend to be more resistant and elastic compared to their polyurethane-modified counterparts.

Some typical properties of modified silane adhesives include their mechanical and chemical characteristics: Mechanical characteristics:

  • Elasticity and flexibility
  • Tensile strength ranging from 1 to 4 MPa, with silane-modified epoxy achieving up to 8 MPa
  • Maximum elongation of 100% to 300%

Chemical properties:

  • Excellent resistance to ultraviolet rays
  • Ability to be painted, even shortly after application (wet on wet)
  • Adhesion to a wide range of materials, such as metal, ceramic, and plastic, without the need for primers or activators
  • Absence of isocyanates, reducing health risks
