INTRODUCING STIX A550 POWER ELASTIC – our high temperature adhesive

INTRODUCING STIX A550 POWER ELASTIC – our high temperature adhesive

When used in areas subject to high solar gain such as conservatories or atriums, or in close proximity to underfloor heating, standard adhesives will sometimes weaken and fail over time.

That’s why we’ve launched our new STIX A550 POWER ELASTIC premium acrylic adhesive, specially formulated to give high performance over a wide temperature range – making it ideal for such environments.

Whether you’re laying LVT, rubber, linoleum, PVC sheet or tile, vinyl, carpet or natural fibres, the versatile STIX A550 POWER ELASTIC will do the business in the face of high temperatures over an extended period of time.

Nor will plasticiser from vinyl cause a problem for the bond, as the high-sheer strength adhesive also offers exceptional resistance to plasticiser migration.

Available in a 13kg bucket, STIX A550 POWER ELASTIC is solvent-free and low-odour, with very low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions (EC1 Plus), meaning it is safer for installers and less impactful on building occupants during the installation.
