G-Floor Trailer Flooring Marine Adhesive Coverage & Tips

G-Floor Trailer Flooring Marine Adhesive Coverage & Tips

The following information is for the application of trailer flooring using G-Floor marine adhesive over plywood substrate. It is important to note that the use of treated plywood and marine grade OSB has been known to cause bonding issues. This information is for informational purposes only and is far from exhaustive. Application instructions may change overtime and the consumer should always refer to the label for the most recent instructions. This information does not replace the manufacturers installation instructions.

The marine adhesive can be troweled with a 1/16” x 1/16” x 1/16” square notch trowel or applied with a 3/8” nap roller. The application rate must be monitored to yield 100 to 130 square feet per gallon. There are several factors that affect adhesive rate. Most trailer manufacturers will target 130 Sq. Ft. per gallon with a roller. DO NOT EXCEED THIS NUMBER or you will be applying the glue to thin.

Rollers need to be kept moist and changed often.

After the applicator spreads the adhesive, let it have some open time, this allows excess water in the adhesive to evaporate away. Typically this is 5 to 15 minutes. Just lightly touch the top of the adhesive and when it is just starting to skin over, place the flooring in to it. Temperature, humidity, and porosity all impact the open time. Applicators do not need to stress over the time issue, just so the adhesive does dry too much. Open time lets the adhesive grab faster and ensures transfer to the back of the G-Floor. Walk the floor in to the adhesive and ensure it lays flat with no ridges or bubbles. Use a stiff push broom to press the flooring in to the adhesive and move any bubbles out towards the edges. For best results use a carpet roller to create a strong bond.
