Floor Adhesive and glue are important components of any flooring project, as they are used to secure various types of flooring, such as solid hardwood, engineered hardwood, and SPC flooring. It is essential to choose the appropriate adhesive or glue for your project, as different types are designed for use with different materials. For example, a specific glue is needed for wood, while another type may be required for SPC or LVP. In addition, the width of your floor planks should be considered when selecting glue, as wider planks may require a different type to prevent movement risks.

Silane or Polymer Glues

Polymer and silane-based glues are newer options for wood flooring adhesives that are favored by contractors for their easy spreadability and easy clean-up. Polymer-based glues are strong and can withstand moisture changes without breaking or shearing, while silane-based glues offer a strong hold while also allowing for seasonal movement. Silane-based glues are available in various sizes, including sausage tubes, 2.5-gallon buckets, and 3-gallon buckets.

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.

More About Silane Based Glues

Modified silane adhesives are a type of glue developed in Japan in the 1980s as an alternative to traditional polyurethane adhesives. These adhesives are known for their strong elastic properties and are widely used in both Europe and America. They are one-component glues that cure through a process called polycondensation, which involves the emission of methanol. Once cured, modified silane adhesives have the strength and elasticity of an elastomeric material. There are two types of modified silane adhesives: polyether-modified silanes and polyurethane-modified silanes (also known as hybrid polyurethanes). Polyether-modified silanes are more resistant and elastic than polyurethane-modified silanes

Typical properties of modified silanes adhesives

Mechanical characteristics:

  • Are elastic and flexible material
  • Tensile strength between 1 and 4 MPa, the silane-modified based epoxy can reach 8 Mpa.
  • Maximum elongation of 100% to 300%.

Chemical properties:

  • Excellent resistance to ultraviolet rays
  • They can be painted, even shortly after applying (wet on wet).
  • Adhere to a wide range of materials (metal, ceramic, and plastic) without primers or activators.
  • Do not contain isocyanates, reducing health risks
