Preparing the Installation Area
- Before applying FasFIX® adhesive tape, carefully vacuum the installation area to remove loose debris.
- Hand scrape or back trowel the substrate to ensure complete removal of debris.
- Unroll the FasFIX® adhesive into position.
- Overlap all seams by at least ¼ to ½ inch.
- Lightly press FasFIX® sections into place using a steel trowel, stiff bristle broom or similar tool.
- Cut seams by either double cut or trace cut.
Recommended For Sheet/Roll Flooring Installation
- Carefully double cut seams without damaging the surface substrate.
- Pull away the excess FasFIX® adhesive and release liner, adding tension to the release liner instead of folding itself over.
- Remove any sections of FasFIX® adhesive with debris trapped underneath and replace with a new section.
For Aggressive Bonding Substrates
- Overlap all seams at least ¼ to ½ inch.
- Lightly press FasFIX® sections into place using an aluminum paint shield, steel trowel, stiff bristle broom, or similar tool.
- Using a straight edge, align the straight edge against the bottom sheet of the FasFIX® adhesive.
- Following the straight edge, cut the overlapping edge off using a shar, straight-blade utility knife.
- Remove the excess FasFIX® adhesive from top.
Using a new, sharp blade will give the best cutting results. Do not use chalk lines or markers directly on FasFIX® adhesive. Use pen or pencil for laying out lines, then position FasFIX® adhesive. Chalk lines can be used against the surface of the FasFIX® release liner to avoid contaminating the adhesive.
Dry Lay Flooring
- Dry lay the flooring material to be installed, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Uplift half the area and vacuum the back of the flooring along with the surface of the release liner.
- Remove the FasFIX® protective release liner by folding or rolling, leaving approximately 2-3 inches.
- Fold the release liner under the flooring to prevent debris falling onto the exposed FasFIX® adhesive.
- Place flooring materials onto the exposed adhesive.
- Reposition material as needed before rolling or foot traffic.
- Use a 100–150 three section roller to remove any air bubbles and ensure the best possible bond.
Do not install over any existing cushion backed resilient flooring.
All primers and floor prep materials (patching compounds) should be applied and cured before beginning the application of the FasFIX® adhesive.
Only remove protective release liner from adhesive as needed during installation, exposing only the adhesive needed to install the next pieces or row of flooring material.
Always remove protective release liner in the direction away from the exposed adhesive.
