USE TO INSTALL:
All recommended fiberglass sheet goods.
Taylor 2037 can be used over the following, above, on, or below grade concrete
in the absence of excessive moisture and alkalinity, association grade plywood
underlayment, association grade particleboard underlayment, existing- well bonded
resilient flooring, poured in place and primed gypsum subfloors, radiant heated subfloors
where surface temperatures do not exceed 85°F (20.40°C), and terrazzo.
Extremely porous subfloors should be primed with Taylor 2025 prior to the application of the
Taylor 2037. The pH level of concrete must be between 5 and 9 (do not install if over 9) and
moisture level of concrete must be below 5 lbs./1000 sq. ft./24 hours using an anhydrous
calcium chloride test kit according to ASTM F-1869 test method. Relative Humidity readings
according to ASTM F-2170 should not exceed (RH) 85%. If both tests are performed the RH
test is the qualifying standard.
Floor must be clean, level and dry. Remove all foreign substances such as wax,
grease, dirt and any substance or chemical that would interfere with a good bond.
Fill all holes and cracks with a cement based patching compound. Sand high spots,
install underlayment grade plywood or particleboard underlayment over tongue and groove
flooring to eliminate the possibility of telegraphing.
The adhesive, floor covering, and area to receive resilient flooring must be maintained at a
temperature of 65°-95°F (18°-35°C) and at a relative humidity of 30-60% for 72 hours before,
during, and after installation. Follow the flooring manufacturer’s guidelines regarding site conditions
and installation. Adhesive must be completely dry before laying sheet goods (for releasable
installation). Dry time will vary with fluctuations of temperature and humidity
or porosity of the substrate.
RECOMMENDED APPLICATOR / COVERAGE:
A smooth surface paint roller up to a 3/8" nap is recommended. Coverage over
porous substrates is up to 350 sq. ft./gal. (8.6 sq. meters/liter). Coverage over
non-porous substrates is up to 400 sq. ft./gal. (9.8 sq. meters/liter).
NOTE: Coverage is approximate and may vary
depending on porosity of substrate and the
amount of adhesive applied.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Adhesives applied over non-porous substrates require extended
1. Apply adhesive with recommended roller to approved substrate. It is the installer’s
responsibility to apply the proper amount of adhesive for the job condition.
2. Allow adhesive to dry to the point where it will not transfer to the fingers
3. Lay flooring according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Adhesive
will remain tacky up to 24 hours in a clean, dust free environment.
4. For Permanent installations, install sheet goods into the wet adhesive
5. Complete the job by using the “Broom Method” or installer’s choice for
removing air pockets.
Restrict heavy traffic on floor for 48 hours after installation.
30 minutes to 1 hour (depending upon environmental conditions)
One year in unopened container at 70° F (21°C).
Meets NFPA Class A and UBC Class 1 as determined by ASTM E-84 and also passes the
Solvent-free, freeze/thaw stable to 10°F (-12°C).
Made with anti-microbial agents that will provide its dry film with
protection from fungal growth. This protection is determined using the ASTM G21 test method.
Use soap and water to clean up while adhesive is still wet. If dried, use an approved
adhesive remover or stripper.
