Suitable Substrate Floor Preparations
  • Removal of all existing flooring is recommended whenever possible; however, in certain circumstances it may be possible to install over an existing floor.
  • BILD vinyl flooring material may be installed over existing flooring surfaces such as terrazzo, epoxy, ceramic tile, quarry tile, metal floors, and in certain cases resilient floors and VCT, provided they are dry, well bonded, sound, smooth, and free of waxes, polishes and/or any other foreign materials.
Acclimation of Vinyl in Space
Preparation & Handling
  • Floor must be clean, smooth, flat and dry. Remove all foreign substances such as wax, grease, dirt, construction marks and contaminants, and any substance or chemical that would interfere with a good bond.
  • BLT recommends priming extremely porous floors with Taylor Envirotec 2025 Universal Primer™ to prevent over absorption of adhesives, dust containment, and to insure a better bond of the adhesive to the subfloor/underlayment.
Applying the Adhesive
Applying Adhesive

WARNING: DO NOT USE MULTI-PURPOSE OR VCT ADHESIVE. ADHESIVE MUST BE PLASTICIZER MIGRATION RESISTANT.

  • Flooring, adhesive and area to receive flooring must be maintained at a temperature of 65º to 95º F (18º to 35º C) & a relative humidity of 30% to 60% for 72 hours before, during, & after the installation.
  • When applying adhesive, use a notched trowel, size- 1/16 in. x 1/32 in. x 1/32 in.
  • Spread adhesive covering 100% of the exposed sub floor, leaving no gaps or puddles. 
  • Taylor Resolute (MS+ Resilient) using Wet Set Method

Double Cut Vinyl for Cold Weld
Cold Weld Seams
  1. Read and Follow Manufacturer Instructions
  2. Align the pattern providing adequate overlap, adhere the sheets to the designated dry zone.
  3. Cut the seam with a utility knife with a new, sharp blade. Use a steel straightedge, cut at 90º angle.
  4. Do not lift knife out of floor during seam cutting.
  5. Remove the selvage and fold back the sheets to expose the dry zone.
  6. Apply adhesive with a properly notched trowel across the dry zone.
  7. Allow adhesive to develop tack and lay the sheet that was on the bottom first.
  8. Place masking tape over the seam and press it down firmly.
  9. Cut through the masking tape over the join between the two sheets using a straight knife
  10. Press the needle firmly into the seam & pull the tube along the joint. Control the flow of liquid.
  11. Wait about 10 minutes for the glue to bond & pull the tape off.
Vinyl Heat Weld
Heat Weld Seams
  • Heat welding is the process of heat fusing two sheets of resilient sheet vinyl flooring together at the seam. A properly executed heat welded seam offers impervious, reinforced seams recommended for areas of high traffic, including those subjected to heavy rolling or wheeled loads, areas exposed to excessive moisture (frequent washing), healthcare applications (sanitation), laboratories, and clean rooms.
  • G-Floor welding thread is 3 mm in diameter and is meant to be used with a 3 mm nozzle. Use of a larger nozzle will cause improper bonding or permanent damage to the flooring, including burning or glazing of the vinyl wear layer surface.
