Artificial grass adhesive is used for two reasons: to install artificial grass directly onto hard surfaces such as stone or paved patios, wood/timber decking, concrete, laminated flooring surfaces, or brick; and as application to seaming tape in order to adjoin two cuts of artificial grass.
In the first instance, the adhesive makes for a really quick and simple installation tool. There is no need for nails or timber frames or sub-bases. The artificial grass can be laid out across the installation area, the adhesive applied to its latex backing material and, 12 hours later, the job is complete and ready to walk on.
In the second instance, for areas that are fitted to custom shapes and sizes, two cuts of artificial grass are joined together using the adhesive. A length of seaming tape is run down the middle of the join, and the adhesive applied directly to the tape.
- The adhesive can be used to install direct to stone, wood, concrete or paved areas or applied to seaming tape in order to join two cuts of artificial grass.
- If installing directly onto a hard surface, ensure the installation area is smooth, clean, and free from dust, loose particles or contaminants such as oil which may affect adhesion. Dampness can be tolerated; but any surface water should be removed.
- If applying to seaming tape, eject the adhesive in a ziz-zag pattern across the tape, and use generously for joins that are likely to withstand increased foot-fall.
- The adhesive cartridge can be loaded into a glue gun as seen in the image above, but it also comes with a screw-on applicator attachment as standard so is ready for use instantly.
Each cartridge will provide enough adhesive for approximately 3 – 4 linear metres of artificial grass or seaming tape.
