Used with real wood flooring to bring a high-end finish to the Mayfair Hotel’s partially covered cigar lounge, SikaBond AT-80 and Sikaflex EBT adhesive products were selected to ensure a professional flooring finish.
Helping to install up to 30 square metres of luxury wooden flooring, SikaBond AT-80 was selected due to its outstanding adhesive properties. Comprising a combination of the powerful Sika polyurethane (PU) technology and modified silicone (MS) technologies, SikaBond AT-80 is a new type of hybrid polymer that ensures a high quality elastic adhesive bond.
To help bring the finishing touches to the installation, Sikaflex EBT in black was also used to seal and fill the edges of the floor in the new cigar lounge, which was designed to replicate the look of a ship’s deck.
Sean Barry, Buyer from EE Smith Ltd, said: “After speaking to one of Sika’s specialists, we were able to establish what products would work best on this project, given its partially external nature, which meant the flooring would at times be exposed to the elements, coupled with the fact that the project needed to be finished to an incredibly high standard. SikaBond AT-80 and Sikaflex EBT were put forward as the most suitable products and proved to be incredibly easy to use, fixing the real wood flooring permanently in place, as expected.”
Sean continued: “Sika were incredibly helpful in ensuring that we had the right products for the job in question and were on hand to answer any technical queries we had throughout the project.”
Owing to its elastic properties, SikaBond AT-80 can also help to reduce the passage of footfall sound, a point of particular notice when installing wood floors in settings where travelling noise can be a problem.
Similarly, Sikaflex EBT is a unique elastic polyurethane that can stick, seal and fill, providing a premium, multi-purpose product that is suitable for use on a wide range of jobs.
