UltraFloor Stick IT 543 is a pressure sensitive, water based, acrylic polymer dispersion and is used for bonding dimensionally stable Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), PVC sheets, planks, and tiles in interior floorcovering installations. UltraFloor Stick IT 543 is specifically suited for use in high temperature installations and areas of direct sunlight such as conservatories and glazed shop fronts. UltraFloor Stick IT 543 has superior shear resistance to minimise floorcovering shrinkage under heated conditions and offers excellent dimensional stability. Being a pressure sensitive adhesive, the bond is formed simply by application of pressure to marry the adhesive, applied to the subfloor, with the floorcovering. It also has excellent plasticiser migration resistance. Ideal for use with Underfloor Heating Systems. UltraFloor Stick IT 543 is very low emission and odour neutral.

All cementitious subfloors should be strong and stable with good tensile and compressive strength. Any weak layers in the subfloor and old material residues must be thoroughly and completely removed by mechanical means. Subfloors should be clean and dry, free from surface laitance, grease, dirt and other loose contaminants.
All subfloors must contain an effective damp proof membrane or when absent consideration should be given to the use of a surface damp proof membrane to ensure the floor remains below 75% relative humidity following installation of any new floorcoverings.
Priming substrates is not normally required as long as thorough preparation is carried out, however, if the subfloor is highly absorbent it may cause rapid drying of the adhesive by suction and reduce adhesion strength to the floorcovering. In such instances it would be advisable to prime with an even coat of ULTRAFLOOR MSP Primer diluted 1:3 by volume with clean, cold water. This will maintain the curing properties of the adhesive and ensure coverages. Exception would be Calcium Sulphate / Anhydrite floors which need to be completely dry, free from grease stains, dirt, dust, surface laitance then primed with ULTRAFLOOR MSP Primer and, allowing to cure.
Before applying ULTRAFLOOR STICK IT 543, if installing on to a fully impervious subfloor, apply a minimum3mm layer of cementitious levelling compound and allow to cure before applying ULTRAFLOOR STICK IT 543. All ULTRAFLOOR Levelling Compounds are compatible with ULTRAFLOOR STICK IT 543, please see www.instarmac.co.uk for leveller choice per specific installations. Additionally, if the subfloor is uneven, this can be rectified by the use of a levelling compound from the above website and allowing to cure before applying adhesive.
