Gekko G42: Discover a Bond for Life

Bonding PVC flooring or vinyl floor coverings? Need a solution that is flexible enough to work around stair risers and treads whilst flashing off in 5 minutes? Gekko 42 has your back with a lifetime guarantee. Plasticizer migration? What plasticizer migration…

To get your flooring experience off to the best start with G42, we’ve shared some quick tips:

  • Before using G42, check its compatibility by spraying a small test patch of the adhesive on the substrate you’re working with.
  • Before bonding with Gekko G42, ensure that your surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc. For the very best results, the temperature of the adhesive and the surfaces being bonded should be between 16°C – 27°C.
  • Spray Gekko G42 approximately 6” – 10” away at a 90 degree angle to the surface, applying a uniform, even coat of adhesive to obtain 80% to 100% coverage of the surface.
  • Allow flash off time (roughly 5 minutes) for G42 to tack off.
  • Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. A mallett can be used to apply uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength.
  • Allow 24 hours for G42 to fully cure.
  • If the spray tip clogs, unscrew the spray tip from the gun and clean with Gekko G92 or G93 solvent cleaners (do not use a pin on the spray tip!)

Get Your Hands on Dichloromethane Free Adhesives! 

Dichloromethane (DCM) is a solvent.  It’s used to keep liquid adhesives in a liquid form so that they can be sprayed or spread onto a surface.  Once the adhesive comes in contact with the air, the solvent evaporates and the adhesive turns to a solid.

Dichloromethane is a very effective solvent, but it also has a number of health drawbacks.  The compounds in dichloromethane affect the human body’s mucous membranes – so that’s the lining of the eye sockets and the lungs, as well as the skin.  Common symptoms include:

  • Sore, itchy or watery eyes
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Skin rashes

When inhaled, DCM vapour can cause neurological symptoms such as dizziness and headaches.  In laboratory tests performed on rodents, exposure to dichloromethane was shown to increase the risks of cancer, and is linked to incidences of lung cancer in humans.

Dichloromethane is heavier than air, which means that when it evaporates out of the adhesive, it lingers at around 12 inches from floor level for a significant period of time.  Because carpet fitters in particular spend a lot of time kneeling, they are at greater risk of dichloromethane exposure.

Wearing high-grade PPE can protect contractors from the risks of DCM – but wearing a respirator when fitting carpets isn’t the way most people like to work.  Switching to a DCM-free adhesive means you can eliminate the risks, without compromising on performance.
