PFS Adds Bostik's New Green Force Adhesive to its Range of Hardwood Flooring Glues and Adhesives

Published on 2014-10-29. Author :

Conshohocken, PA -- Philadelphia Floor Store (PFS), one of the nation’s leading hardwood flooring distributor, recently added Bostik’s new Green Force Adhesive with AXIOS Tri-Linking Polymer Technology to their line of hardwood flooring glues and adhesives.

The product’s AXIOS Tri-Linking Polymer Technology refers to its molecular structure which was designed with three branches, as compared to most other adhesives that have only two branches. This three-branch design offers more points of contact between the molecule and the surface it is adhering to allowing for a superior green grab which refers to how well glue adheres to wood upon contact.

According to Joe Glavin, PFS owner and national sales manager, “Green Force with AXIOS Tri-Linking Polymer Technology is a great addition to our line of flooring adhesives, as it is perfectly suited for installations over many different subfloors and can be used with both solid and engineered hardwood floors." Glavin continued, “There is also no need to test for moisture, as the product’s entanglement of molecules is so tight that it does not allow moisture to permeate through concrete subfloors. Moisture tests can take up to four days, so this is a huge time saver for hardwood installers.”

Bostik developed Green Force with anti-fracture technology that can bridge cracks up to 1/8″ which can occur in the substrate prior to or after installation. The product also offers superior elasticity, allowing the adhesive to move with the wood as it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature. The adhesive bonds with concrete, but not with finishes, so clean up is quick and easy.
