Questions & Answers

The blurb says this Universal adhesive is suitable for bathrooms, yet epoxy is also recommended. Is there any advantage to epoxy over Universal? No underfloor htg, just a normal bathroom.

Asked by Simon Brock on 26 Jul 2019

Hi, Can i use this adhesive to lay LVT tiles onto an existing ceramic tile floor?

Asked by Matt Williamson on 24 Nov 2018

1 Answer

Hi there, We recommend to latex the ceramic tiles before sticking down the LVT tiles to ensure that they will adhere. Please also keep in mind the subfloor must be completely flat, dry and even. Thanks

We have a screed over concrete floor what glue do I use and does it need to be primed. If so what primer do I need.

Asked by Joan Ashton from London on 13 Mar 2018

1 Answer

Hi Joan, this adhesive will work great for that. It won't need priming unless the screed is very dusty, in which case simply a mix of PVA and water will work perfectly.

Can it be used to stick vinyl tiles on top of vinyl tiles?

Asked by Bryan Selby from Rugby on 07 Nov 2015

1 Answer

Afternoon No I'm afraid the tiles down on the floor will need to be removed before installation of your new glue down LVT. An alternative option though you could use one of the new glueless LVT products now available:,locking-system
