Bostik has released its newest product, Bostik Climb as a single-component adhesive solution for installers of hardwood floors, staircases and wall coverings. According to the company, the adhesive offers convenient application with non-sag, and strong green grab properties. While it will be well-suited to flooring installation, it will be particularly helpful in vertical installations such as walls and stairs.
Bostik reports that the flexibility of the solvent-free, low VOC adhesive allows it to expand and contract with the wood substrate, and it will reduce stair-squeaking and footstep noises. Climb is versatile and can be used on a wide variety of substrates including engineered hardwood and bamboo, gypsum drywalling, brick, cinder block and concrete.
In addition, the adhesive does not bond with surface finishes, making it easy to clean any spills or seepage away, even once the adhesive has cured.
