Shop Floor, Carpet and Tile Adhesives Online
Carpet tiles are a quick, convenient, and cost-effective way to cover your concrete or wooden floors, making them a popular option in offices, schools, community centres, and the likes. Using a carpet adhesive or tile adhesive is a fairly easy process; it’s a milky white substance that is similar in consistency to PVA glue which is applied directly to either the concrete / wooden floor before laying your carpet tiles on top.
Which tile adhesives are best to buy?
Whether you choose to do this yourself or give the job to a contractor, you can be sure BUCO has the floor adhesive for sale that you’re looking for — and one that suits your project best. Stockists of the most effective brands at competitive prices, you can find various floor adhesives for sale here on our website or directly in store, in a variety of quantity sizes best suited to your needs. From Alcolin, Goldstar, Tilon, and Porcelainfix to Medal and more, we’ve got the brand you’re looking for.
While generally an easy enough project, here are some tips to help you get the job done in an organised way that also keeps you and your work area clean and tidy:
- If you want a semi-permanent bond, wait until the glue has turned from white to transparent before you apply the tiles
- If you want a permanent bond, apply the tiles to the floor when the glue is still wet
- Use a roller, a brush, or even the smooth edge of a scrap piece of tile to smear/spread the glue onto your floor’s surface
- Make sure the floor is completely clean from dirt and dust
- Do not walk over floor space that you have applied glue to at all
- Mark where the centre of your room is and then apply your glue and tiles from a central point and work in a circular motion radiating outward to the edges of the room.
A big part of why carpet tiles are the preferred option in many places is because of their flexibility. It isn’t often that these would be glued down as a permanent fixture because part of their attraction is that they are easy to clean and/or adjust when you can shift them around. So remember to follow the tips above for the difference between a semi-permanent bond versus a permanent bond based on the option you would prefer.
