Taylor 2071 Tuff-Lok X-Link Wood Flooring Adhesive with Meta-Tec® Technology, is a high solids, cross linking, Amide-Ester-Acrylate, resin-based adhesive formulated for the interior installation of dry-back parquet, engineered wood plank, acrylic impregnated plank, and pre-finished and unfinished solid wood flooring. It is solvent free, has a low VOC content, contains no hazardous chemicals as per OSHA Regulation CFR 1910.1200 and it is a nonflammable, low odor adhesive that meets all federal, state, and local governmental indoor air quality regulations. This specially formulated adhesive has good early strength buildup for immediate grab and gradually builds into a tenacious but resilient bond as the chemicals in the adhesive cross-link.
Taylor 2071 can be used over association grade underlayment plywood, association grade particleboard underlayment, cork underlayments, existing well-bonded vinyl tile and sheet flooring, terrazzo, radiant heated subfloors where surface temperatures do not exceed 85°F (29.40°C), and concrete. Install above, on, or below grade, in the absence of excessive moisture and alkali. While this adhesive is waterproof when cured, the wood flooring still must be protected from excessive moisture. Although this adhesive retards MVT, it is not intended to function as a moisture barrier. The pH level of concrete must be between 5 and 9 (do not install if over 9) and moisture level of concrete must be below 3 lbs./1000 sq. ft./24 hours using an anhydrous calcium chloride test kit according to ASTM F-1869 test method. Relative Humidity readings according to ASTM F-2170 should not exceed (RH) 75%. If both tests are performed the RH test is the qualifying standard. Follow wood flooring manufacturer’s guidelines for allowable levels of moisture. Wood underlayments must have a moisture content below 12% using a Tramex or Delmhorst wood moisture meter.
