Bona R848 Adhesive is suitable for both commercial and residential use. Use with engineered pre-finished and unfinished flooring.
May be used on both wood and concrete substrates. The use of a primer is in general not necessary. The adhesive hardens by a chemical reaction with moisture.
Bona R848 provides outstanding adhesion to a variety of surfaces, and allows for the natural movement of wood flooring.

Substrate must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from surface dust, dirt and debris. Surfaces should be slightly textured for best adhesion. Remove all existing traces of adhesive residue, paint, concrete curing compounds or other contaminants that may affect the adhesive bond. Sandblasting, shot blasting or scarifying may be necessary to completely remove some of these residues. Surface cracks, grooves, depressions, control joints or other non-moving joints, and other irregularities must be filled or smoothed with a Portland Cement based patching and levelling compound.
Substrate must be level to 3/16° in a 10 foot span.
Slab temperatures must be between 55℉ and 95℉. Suitable substrates include concrete, plywood, cork, particle or chip board, stone, ceramic, terrazzo, radiant heat flooring (refer to manufacturer's recommended installation instructions) and dry above-grade gypsum underlayments. Bona R848 may be used for glue assisted installations.
Do not install wood flooring before the compound has fully cured.
Do not install over expansion joints or other moving joints in a concrete slab.
