TacTiles, Adhesive and Floor Prep

TacTiles

We recommend TacTiles connectors for GlasBac®, GlasBacRE, Graphlar® and Graphlex backing systems. These revolutionary, glue-free adhesive squares adhere tiles to one another and create a "floating" floor. There are no liquid components, so VOCs are virtually eliminated and there is no odor. TacTiles connectors let you install carpet almost anywhere, any time.

Use: Interface GlasBac, GlasBacRE, Graphlar and Graphlex 

Spread Rates: "Full Spread" install (every corner): 125 sy/roll (500 TacTiles per roll)

Adhesive 2000 Plus

Adhesive 2000 Plus replaces four current adhesives –Grid-Set Green Glue 2000 used for our GlasBac, GlasBacRE, Graphlar and Graphlex backed carpet tile, Adhesive 2100 used with our Performance Broadloom, Adhesive 2300 used with NexStep and STIX 5500 used with LVT. This change simplifies our adhesive offering and provides simpler installations of carpet tile and LVT where adhesive is used in lieu of TacTiles, as both product types can now be installed with one adhesive.
