    Sausages Ensure Better Hardwood Flooring Installations

    Bostik is now offering its revolutionary hardwood flooring adhesive, Pro-MSP™... in sausage packs! 20-ounce sausages offer benefits such as reduced waste footprint, more coverage per individual container and are 100% installer-friendly.  

    According to Kevin Ray, Bostik's Senior Product Line Specialist, "With a ¼-inch bead, each Pro-MSP™ sausage will cover approximately 60 linear feet, which makes it great for glue-assist installations per the new NWFA Installation Guidelines. Frankly, it's much easier finishing smaller installation areas with sausages. If you are installing as a full spread application, no more need to open up brand new pails for a small area. Rather, just use a few Pro-MSP™ sausages to finish any job.”

    Sausages are a great way to make glue-assisted nail-down installations easy.  Ideal for working with wide-plank flooring (>5 in), easy to clean and easy to gun, Pro-MSP™ MS-Polymer is able to bond to a variety of substrates, making it the ideal adhesive for glue-assisted nail-down installations. Additionally, Pro-MSP™ has the necessary elastomeric properties that wood flooring needs as it expands and contracts over time.  Installers should have this convenient packaging size with them to be ready whenever nailing is not enough.

    Sausage packs provide a variety of benefits like a reduced waste footprint, more coverage per individual container and being installer friendly. With Glue-Assist applications, each 20 fluid ounce Pro-MSP™ sausage will cover approximately 60 linear feet, at a ¼-inch bead. If installers need to finish a small area, they can eliminate the need to open up brand new pails, and instead they may use just a few Pro-MSP™ sausages to finish the job. When used in full spread applications, and depending on the trowel selection, each sausage should cover 3 to 12 square feet.

    Each case comes with 12 Pro-MSP™ sausages and four nozzles, making it even more convenient for installers to grab and go. And, Bostik has also made "the 12:1 Sausage Gun" available.  This 12:1 ratio gun makes gunning adhesives easy, and can quickly convert to dispense either 20-ounce sausages or 10-ounce cartridges.

  • GreenForce®
    Advanced Tri-Linking™ Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane...

  • To learn more visit: https://bit.ly/bostikgreenforce

    Bostik GreenForce® is a high performance hardwood flooring adhesive and moisture control membrane all in one. With Bostik’s breakthrough AXIOS® Tri-Linking™ Polymer Technology, GreenForce® maintains the superior long term durability and moisture protection properties of high-end urethane hardwood floor adhesive, but it is easier to spread and clean off of prefinished flooring, even after full cure. Bostik GreenForce® has zero VOC’s (as calculated per SCAQMD Rule 1168) and does NOT contain any water.

    Use GreenForce® in Applications that Require Antimicrobial Protection

    GreenForce® comes with Bostik’s BLOCKADE® antimicrobial protection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold or mildew on the surface of the cured membrane. The cured membrane resists stains caused by mold.

    GreenForce® is a Flooring Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane in One

    GreenForce® hardwood flooring adhesive has extremely low moisture vapor permeability and is not adversely affected by moisture. As a result, costly and time consuming concrete moisture testing is not required when the slab is properly prepared, dry to the touch and fully cured.

    Use GreenForce® in Applications that Require an Anti-fracture, Antimicrobial Hardwood Flooring Adhesive

    The elastomeric characteristics of GreenForce® establish an anti-fracture membrane that can bridge cracks up to 1/8" (3mm), which can occur in the substrate prior to or after installation. This superior elasticity allows GreenForce® adhesive to move with the wood as it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature over the life of the floor.

    GreenForce® adheres to all the most common substrates used in hardwood flooring installation

    Bostik GreenForce® has no restrictions on board width or length. It may be used over all properly prepared substrates common to hardwood flooring installations.
