Recommended Substrates

Will bond to all substrates listed below, but refer to the flooring installation system for specific installation recommendations:  


  • Concrete with excessive moisture and/or alkali
  • Existing cushion-backed resilient flooring
  • Substrates treated with fire-retardant chemicals, fungicides, preservatives, release agents, adhesive removers, sealers, curing compounds or other incompatible treatments

Important Notes: 

Preparation: Acclimate the installation area, adhesive and flooring in an enclosed building at a minimum of 65°F (18°C) for at least 48 hours before, during and for 48 hours after installation. When installing Natural Creations with Diamond 10, the temperature shall be maintained at a minimum of 65° F (18° C) and should not exceed 85° F (29° C) for 48 hours before, during and for 48 hours after completion. During the service life, the temperature should never rise above 85° F (29° C).

Prior to installation always perform moisture and alkali tests for concrete on any grade level. For high moisture installations, follow additional special preparation requirements described in high moisture section below*. 

Substrate must be sound, smooth and flat in accordance with flooring manufacturer requirements. Ensure that the substrate is solid and fixed securely to provide a rigid base free of undue flex. Address rough unsmooth areas, cracks, holes and levelling needs using available substrate preparation products. Any substrate patching or levelling materials used must have a minimum compressive strength of 3,000 psi (210 kg/cm2). 

*High Moisture Installations:
Prior to installation always perform moisture and alkali tests for concrete on any grade level. Moisture test results should not exceed 99% RH as determined by the concrete relative humidity test method (ASTM F2170). Verify concrete surface dryness by mat testing for 24 hours in accordance with ASTM D4263. Alkali readings should not exceed 12 pH. 
Acclimate the installation area, adhesive and flooring in an enclosed building at a minimum of 65°F (18°C) for at least 72 hours before, during and for 72 hours after installation. 

Additional requirements for high moisture installations: 

  • Concrete must be a minimum of 45 days old, on-grade or below-grade slabs must be known to have an intact moisture vapor barrier beneath the slab, per ASTM E1745.
  • Concrete slab must be at service temperature, and occupied air space above the slab must be at service temperature and service relative humidity, at time of installation. 
  • Relative humidity of air within the space should not exceed 65% for 72 hours following the installation.

While this adhesive is resistant to being damaged by high concrete moisture vapor emissions, it does not create a moisture barrier and therefore does not protect the floor covering from concrete moisture. Address concrete not satisfying the above requirements by using available moisture control products. 

Application Instructions

Installation procedure: 
Follow Armstrong Flooring guidelines for flooring layout, design and suitable installation methods. Remove lid and stir any liquid found on the surface into the adhesive, this adhesive is ready-to-use and does not require mixing. 

  • Apply adhesive evenly using proper roller and following coverage rate guidelines
  • Do not apply more adhesive than can be covered within approximately 4 hours, depending on air temperature, air humidity and the porosity of the substrate.
  • Allow the rolled-out adhesive to set open until becoming dry to-the-touch (tacky, but no transfer to fingers) and then lay flooring.
  • Roll the installed floor across width and length using a 3-section 100 lb heavy roller.

After Installation: The new floor may be opened to traffic immediately. Protect all floor coverings when moving heavy appliances and/or when rolling loads are utilized. 

Clean Up: Remove wet adhesive residue with a clean, white cloth dampened with soapy water. Use mineral spirits for dried adhesive residue. When using mineral spirits, carefully follow the recommendations of the manufacturer, and test a small area before proceeding to make sure it does not damage the surface being cleaned.
