Proper installation of FiberFlex® is critical to its long-lasting durability and resistance to impact, chemicals, heat, sunlight and microbial invasion. When installed properly, the fast 24-hour cure time of FiberFlex® allows it to be available for traffic quickly as opposed to 5-10 days for epoxy Flooring.
FiberFlex® Installation Process
Step One: Prepare Floor
Preparation is key. A clean, flat surface is necessary for proper flooring adhesion. Eliminate dips, grooves, or other abnormalities by scraping and applying a self-leveling product.
Step 2: Lay Flooring
Measure twice, cut once. Roll out FiberFlex® and cut to size needed.
Step 3: Mix Adhesive
FiberFlex® uses either a one-part or two-part adhesive as needed based on application.
Step 4: Apply Adhesive
Pull back or remove pre-cut FiberFlex® and spread adhesive to the pre-prepped floor using professional flooring tools covering the area where flooring is to be applied. Note: Only spread enough adhesive to cover an area that is manageable to apply flooring before adhesive sets up. See manufacturers' recommendations for details.
Step 5: Install Flooring
Once the adhesive has properly set, lay the FiberFlex® in the installation area making sure flooring doesn’t fold and seams fit snug but don’t overlap.
Step 6: Roll Floor
Once FiberFlex® is installed, roll the floor with a properly weighted floor roller to remove air pockets and even-out adhesive.
Step 7: Chemically Weld Seams
Weld seams with seam welding material specifically provided by the manufacturer.
Step 8: Cure Time
Your customers will get back to work quicker with fast cure times which will save them time and money. A properly installed FiberFlex® area is ready for foot traffic within 4 hours and full-service traffic in just 24 hours.
