"Bought this as I had a tricky bathroom vinyl to lay I normally use the spray adhesive but as it was a large area I went for the tub version, it has a longer setting time than the spray ( which is pretty instant ) this allows you to lift and reset the vinyl if you haven't got it quite where you want it ! I always PVA the floor before sticking which improves the adhesion very impressed with it 2 x cans of aerosol are the same price as this tub & it goes much further and is more user friendly"
"I had a tub of this from a few years back, and while it was still in perfect condition, I needed more so bought this.
It did a great job on about 15m2 of carpet tiles, and I've used it before for carpets too. Obviously, this isn't for ceramic bathroom/kitchen tiles; that would be a disaster! :(
It's a smooth easily spread consistency like think yogurt. It covers reasonably well with flat floors/tiles, so long as you use a fine scraper - a tiny one is in the tub, but that's no fun to use (yeukk!). You should try and find one with teeth 1-2mm deep (not 4-5mm like some sold here) or you will use a lot of glue!
The material itself is quite pleasant; not TOO smelly, but will take a day or two to dissipate. It can be messy to use because it is so rubbery: it will stick to your hands quickly and gloves are therefore advised, but not essential if you are careful. Keep the glue away from tile edges to avoid squeeze-out up the tile sides!
All in all, it's a joy to use though, and does a great semi-permanent fixing job. Some adjustment is possible - it's not a contact adhesive - but it does fix completely in 10-20 minutes. Those tiles really don't move after a couple of days."
"Currently using this to stick vinyl tiles down to a chipboard floor in my porch. Other than it being very sticky (which is kind of the point really!), especially to your hands when it starts to dry, no complaints at all.
I would echo the previous review recommending it to be spread thinly. You get a few minutes to lift and reposition if necessary but seems to dry fairly quickly. Again, as others have suggested you can let it dry slightly before laying non-porous flooring.
Clean up with water before it sets and wear disposable gloves if you don't enjoy peeling it off your skin!"
"Bought a tub of this to retile my small boiler room. Was a little suspicious to start with when the spreader supplier was just 2" square and the nothches (for floors) were just 3mm deep ?? Then came the application, it spreads like treacle, it just has no solidity or structure to it, uses loads then to build up any height. Obviously there's some oozing of the adhesive between the tiles as they are being bed down, and that then needs a bout 2 meters of paper towel else it gets everywhere, hands, clothes the floor tiles themselves, grrrrrr, messiest adhesive i've ever had the displeasure of using. I did want the No Nonsense dry powder version, but on the day my 2 local branches were out of stock, so thought i'd give this Evo-Stick a go .... NEVER AGAIN !!"
