When installing EcoFlex® ICT over old cutback or adhesive residue, use Mohawk Group OptiSeal™ as a barrier to help prevent plasticizer migration. Following instruction for use, apply the OptiSeal™ only after existing adhesive is mechanically scraped to a smooth minimal residue. Consult Mohawk Group Technical Services for installation recommendations regarding substrates and conditions not listed.
Read all installation instructions thoroughly before installation. Site conditions and floor preparation requirements must comply with those specified by the Mohawk Group Installation Guidelines. The installation site must be acclimated with HVAC in operation. The jobsite, substrate, carpet tiles and the adhesive must be conditioned at a temperature of 65°F - 85°F and ambient humidity of 30-65% for at least 48 hours before and during the installation. When installation is complete the jobsite must be maintained at normal service temperature and humidity. If these conditions are not attainable, contact Mohawk Group Technical Services. Use the appropriate notched trowel (see “Typical Trowels and Approximate Coverages” section). Spread adhesive evenly over the subfloor, keeping the trowel at a 45° angle to the subfloor. Install flooring in strict accordance with the Mohawk Group’s installation guidelines. Roll the flooring with a 75 – 100 lb roller across the width and length of the flooring surface.
Promptly clean any adhesive from the flooring material’s surface with water while the adhesive is still fresh/wet. Clean tools with water while the adhesive is still fresh/wet. Use mineral spirits once dried. Use caution with mineral spirits, which may be harmful to some material. DO NOT APPLY SOLVENT DIRECTLY TO THE FLOORING MATERIAL.
