Coverage: Depending on the grade of putty knife used.
A 2 = 1 kg for 4 - 5 m²
B 2 = 1 kg for 3 - 4 m²
C 1 = 1 kg for 1 - 1.5 m²
Coverage can be considerably less, depending upon the condition and absorbency of the surfaces. For best results please do a test application!

Package: Polyethylene (PE). This material is groundwater-neutral and recyclable.

General surface requirement: The application surface must, according to DIN 18 365, be even, solid, able to absorb, free of cracks and grease, able to support load, and permanently dry. Maximal surface moisture: Cement based <2% with floor heating <1,8% Anhydride screed <0,5% with floor heating <0,3%

Preparation: It might be necessary to prepare the surface for gluing the material. Level out uneven spots with suitable bonding filler. Spackle over poured asphalt areas and other unabsorbent surfaces with a minimum coating of 2 mm. In any case, the application surface must be absolutely even and evenly absorbent. Treat highly absorbent surfaces with GRAVA Sealer No. 408 and let it dry for one day. The floor covering material and the adhesive must be acclimatized to at least 18 °C (64,4°F) for 24 hours before use. Please follow manufacturer’s instructions. Before laying the flooring material, determine the optimal airing time and adhesion capabilities by means of a test application.

Working with cork and linoleum: Application and drying must take place at temperatures above 18 °C (64,4°F). For cork parquet up to 4mm thick: Apply with a fine-toothed putty knife (i.e. A2) or a radiator roller a thin but complete coat of adhesive to approximately 2 m2 of the adhesion surface. For cork parquet over 5 mm thick: Apply a thin but complete coat of adhesive to the floor and appropriate number of cork tiles. To glue linoleum please use fine-toothed putty knife B2 or C1. Insert floor covering into spread adhesive only after doing this finger test: If touched lightly none of the slightly yellowing adhesive must remain on the fingertips, but under light pressure, the dried surface will burst and fresh adhesive will come out. As a rule the airing time is 20 minutes, but can be a lot longer. Roll floor covering once, repeat after 20-50 minutes. Please, be sure to check seams and rims carefully. The pressed on floor covering should then again be rolled from the middle outwards with a rubber roller, or pounded gently with a rubber hammer. Remove excess adhesive immediately with a damp cloth. After laying the floor roll the whole area. Check adhesion after 1 hour.

Working with jute backed carpet: DOMO Universal Adhesive No. 513 does contain water, because of this certain carpets could shrink.
Please observe the following safety rules:
1. Always air very well.
2. Let seams overlap and round about 5 hrs after the gluing, cut to fit and glue into place.
3. Press carpet tiles as tight together as possible.
4. Apply floor boards after adhesive is completely dry.

Important tips: It is of fundamental importance, that the surfaces to be glued are capable of absorbing water. If the cork tile strongly warps or buckles into a concave shape (bowl like) after being coated with DOMO
Natural Universal Adhesive No. 513, an incompatibility exists. The manufacturer assumes no liability for damage resulting from disregarding these application instructions, including poor adhesion or development of fungi under the tiles. Observe a trial adhesion of a tile for one entire day, and assess adhesion of the test tile after 2 days. Can be used as an all-purpose adhesive for paper, boxes, etc. Not suitable for furniture.
