Recommended Adhesives

JOINT & CRACK PATCH MATERIALS

For faster drying times, slightly more expensive than slow-dry materials but are usually the best choice and the most popular w/ contractors.

1.  Most joint and crack patch materials that have the consistency of whipped creme or mayonnaise, epoxy or polyurethane mix w/ at least 30 mins pot life, light in color, and easy to sand.

2.  General Polymer's fast setting 3513 epoxy joint & crack patch mastic, or (same product) renamed to FT910 Steel Seams by Sherwin Williams; has 30 min. pot life, dries fast so you can coat the same day.

3.  Westcoat's EC 72 Gel (or 7200 Gel)

4.  Kretus: Easy Patch

5.  or, use leftover epoxies or polyurethanes mixed/thickened w/ Cab-O-Sil, or Areosil, etc. 

 

SLOW-DRY ADHESIVES IN TUBES OR BUCKETS

Slower drying, single component, less expensive than faster drying joint & crack patch materials.

6.  TiteBonds 771-STEP "hybrid polyurethane" is a good choice because it is thinner to work w/ and drys alot faster than most thicker/slow dry poly's, has a very strong flexible bond, and doesn't bubble or expand. (only found at Professional Flooring stores, and only comes in 20 oz. aluminum sausage tubes and/or 2-3 gallon buckets) All the pro's without the con's, and hopefully they'll start selling in the lrg quart size tubes soon???

7.  SikaFlex 1A or 11FC polyurethane adhesive in quart size tubes.

8.  Sonneborn/MasterSeal NP1, Masterweld 948 polyurethane adhesive in quart size tubes.

9.  Schnee Morehead's JAWS 9200 polyurethane adhesive by Pro Installers (in quart size tubes)

 

** We only recommend polyurethane adhesives as far as what's offered in tubes.  However, many of them can bubble or expand during curing, especially the NEWER faster drying ones. In contrast, the new HyBRID Polyurethanes like TiteBond 771-Step, do not bubble or expand during curing, so we are moving towards them as the new best choices of materials offered in tubes.
