    Application Guidelines


    • Suitable Substrates: Refer to the flooring manufacturer’s specific recommendations for suitable substrates. Porous: Concrete, well-bonded cementitious underlayments, APA grade underlayment plywood (untreated) and radiant-heated subfloors where temperatures do not exceed 85°F (29.4°C) on all grade levels. Also can be used over well-bonded, properly primed gypsum underlayments (above-grade only). Non-porous: Ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble, certain epoxy coatings and existing well-bonded resilient flooring (not perimeter bonded or cushion-backed). Please note that all substrates must be sound, solid and well-bonded.

Non-porous: Ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble, certain epoxy coatings and existing well-bonded resilient flooring (not perimeter bonded or cushion-backed). Please note that all substrates must be sound, solid and well-bonded.
    • Subfloor Preparation: All substrates must be clean, dry, structurally sound, properly cured and free of dirt, oil, paint, old adhesive, wax, sealers and curing agents. General scouring with 20 grit or #3 1/2 open-coat sandpaper will remove most compounds. All loose materials must be vacuumed from the surface after scouring. The subfloor must be flat to a tolerance of 3/16” in a 10’ radius. Grinding concrete floors is preferred over the use of filling compounds. If filling/flattening compounds are used, they must be Portland-based cementitious material and have a compressive strength equal to or greater than 3000 psi when cured. Moisture level in concrete subfloor will fluctuate. Any cementitious material used must be rated for the highest moisture content possible. Consult the cementitious material manufacturer’s application directions. Use of adhesive over lightweight concrete and all gypsum-based materials requires the use of an approved concrete primer prior to application of adhesive.
    • Installation Recommendations: Apply Franklin 730 with a 1/16" square notch trowel. Open time is between 10 and 25 minutes to promote adhesive transfer. Lift corners periodically to determine if adhesive is transferring to backing. Immediately after installation, roll with a linoleum roller, working from center to edges to expel entrapped air. For curled goods, allow adhesive to tack up to touch before laying goods in order to promote quick adhesion.
    • Cleanup: Use water to remove adhesive spots and clean tools.
