MAPEI introduces Ultrabond ECO 907 fast-curing, 100%-solids, silane-modified polymer, gun-grade adhesive designed for basic wood subfloor construction. “This moisture-curing product is also great for repairing wood flooring, installing wood molding and baseboards, bonding wood stair nosings, and attaching tackstrips to concrete subfloors,” said Jeff Johnson, MAPEI’s Business Marketing Manager for Floor Covering Installation Systems. “It will also act as a supplemental bond for wide plank boards when nailing and gluing are required.”
Designed for use in interior settings, Ultrabond ECO 907 works to bond most common construction materials, including plywood and lumber framing, engineered and solid wood flooring, carpet tackstrips, and polystyrene insulation boards.
“One of the great features of this product is its two-hour cure time,” Johnson stated. “Simply extrude and go. This product reduces installation time, providing high bond strength and excellent elongation properties in a fast-curing adhesive.”
Ultrabond ECO 907 is suitable for installation over a wide variety of substrates including concrete and cement terrazzo, ceramic tile, cement-based self-leveling underlayments and patching compounds, exterior-grade plywood and other approved wood underlayments – even properly installed radiant-heating systems.
