Shaw 200 Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank Adhesive is an advanced resin based, cross-linking pressure sensitive adhesive featuring high aggressive peel and shear strength. This solvent-free, non-flammable, easy troweling product provides excellent installations for tile-over-tile applications, luxury vinyl tile and plank, solid vinyl tile and plank, and vinyl composition tile over both porous and non-porous surfaces. Shaw 200 Adhesive has low odor, is freeze/thaw stable and is very quick and easy to use.
Shaw 200 Adhesive demonstrates excellent water and alkali resistance and may be used with confidence over a variety of flooring materials. Acceptable subfloors include on, above, or below grade moisture free concrete, APA approved plywood underlayment, terrazzo and existing well adhered tile and sheet goods. Plasticizer migration resistance allows installation of a broad variety of vinyl floor products.

*Trowel dimensions are width x depth x spacing. Coverage is approximate and may vary depending on porosity of substrate and the angle at which the trowel is held. It is the installer’s responsibility to apply the proper amount of adhesive for the job condition.
INSTALLATION: Surfaces to be bonded must be free from moisture, wax, dirt, grease, oil, paint, rust or other substances that might interfere with a good bond. Subfloor must be smooth and fully adhered. This adhesive is not recommended for use over concrete slabs where hydrostatic pressure, excessive moisture or alkali exists. Moisture level of concrete must be below 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet per 24 hours using an anhydrous calcium chloride test kit according to ASTM F-1869 test method, or below 85% relative humidity as measured by the ASTM F-2170 test method. The pH level of the concrete should be between 5 and 9. Both the adhesive and surfaces to be bonded must be maintained at a temperature of 65º – 95º F (18.3º – 35.0º C) and between 30% and 60% relative humidity for 72 hours before, during and after installation.
i) Non-Porous Surfaces – Sheet Goods: When installing sheet goods over non-porous surfaces, use the recommended trowel (see trowel chart). Back roll the wet adhesive with a 3/16” nap roller immediately after spreading and allow the adhesive to set open until dry to touch. (Dry to touch is tacky but no transfer to fingers). Time required will vary with ambient conditions. After installation is complete, roll and cross roll with a 100 lb. sectional roller. Use hand roller in areas which cannot be reached with larger roller. Check 1 – 2 hours after installing flooring material and roll again if necessary.
ii) Non-Porous Surfaces – Tile & Plank: Apply Shaw 200 Adhesive with the recommended trowel (see trowel chart), allow to dry completely from yellow to tan, and lay in the tile or plank according to the flooring manufacturer's instructions within 3 hours. The highly aggressive pressure sensitive grip prevents slippage and minimizes seam gaps. Drying time is 45-90 minutes and will vary due to installation site temperature and humidity. Installation over areas of incomplete drying can result in job failure. After installation is complete, roll and cross roll with a 100 lb. sectional roller. Use hand roller in areas which cannot be reached with larger roller. Check 1 – 2 hours after installing flooring material and roll again if necessary.
iii) Porous Surfaces: Shaw 200 Adhesive may be used either wet or as a pressure sensitive adhesive over porous surfaces. To use wet, apply adhesive with the recommended trowel (see trowel chart) and allow to flash off for 5-10 minutes before installing flooring. Lay tile or plank into wet adhesive according to flooring manufacturer’s instructions. Adhesive must transfer to floor product to ensure proper bond. To use as a pressure sensitive adhesive, allow to dry to a tacky state, then install flooring according to flooring manufacturer’s instructions within 3 hours. If installing sheet goods, back roll wet adhesive with a 3/16” nap roller immediately after spreading. After installation is complete, roll and cross roll with a 100 lb. sectional roller. Use hand roller in areas which cannot be reached with larger roller. Check 1-2 hours after installing flooring material and roll again if necessary.
