    Im purchasing some glue down LVT planks for my new kitchen. It will be stuck to a new SP101 timber floor.

    The flooring company wanted around £50+ per tub for flooring adhesive.

    I prefer to buy my own as I can usually get it for cheaper but was wondering if anyone could recommend a good value adhesive that would be suitable for LVT?

    Thanks

    JACK

    Depends how many m2 you need ? £50 for a 14kg is decent

    I use Uzin KE66 which is approx £60 a tub. You used the correct plywood. Why not pay and use the the correct Adhesive. For the sake of maybe saving £10.

    OK great thanks.

    I will take a look.

    Does the timber floor need to be primed before the adhesive is applied?

    I was going to screw down and as a belt and braces approach, considering to apply a bead of ashesive along joists.
