The Bostik Findley Flooring Group has developed Durabond D-232 Hardwood Flooring Adhesive, a waterproof bonding agent formulated to minimize water-vapor transmission. The product is available in 4-gallon pails.
According to the company, Durabond D-232 can be used over all substrates common to hardwood flooring installations. The urethane adhesive adheres to three- or five-ply engineered plank, acrylic-impregnated solid plank, flat-milled shorts, plywood, and parquet wood flooring. Durabond D-232 also can be used to install ceramic tile, marble and stone inlays for light commercial and residential applications, the company says.
