MS-Plus Wood Flooring Adhesive

Taylor, through its innovative technology and consistent product quality and performance, has earned the reputation of being a leader in the adhesive industry and is the preferred supplier to many floor covering manufacturers.

MS-Plus Wood Flooring Adhesive.
Combining Taylor’s patented Meta-tec® technology with Telechelic Modified Silane Polymer chemistry.

This 100% solids, moisture cure adhesive represents a significant advancement in moisture cure adhesive technology. This specially formulated adhesive has good early strength buildup for immediate grab and quickly builds into a tenacious but elastic resilient bond for the installation of all types of engineered and solid wood flooring. The product is also Greenguard® tested and approved, meaning that the solvents and isocyanate by-products commonly found in most moisture cure urethane adhesives have been removed.

Taylor MS Plus can be used over APA grade underlayment plywood, association grade particleboard, cork underlayments, existing well-bonded vinyl tile and sheet flooring, terrazzo, cementitious and anhydrite screeds, concrete and radiant heated subfloors where surface temperatures do not exceed 85°F (30°C). Install above, on, or below grade, in the absence of excessive moisture. While this adhesive is waterproof when cured, the wood flooring still must be protected from excessive moisture. Moisture levels of concrete must be below 3 lbs. per 1,000 square feet per 24 hours using an anhydrous calcium chloride test kit according to ASTM F-1869 test method. An alternative method is to check the moisture content throughout the entire thickness of the subfloor with a properly calibrated carbide or electric hygrometer. The moisture content must be within the limits recommended by the wood flooring manufacturer, generally a maximum of 75% RH. Follow wood flooring manufacturer’s guidelines for allowable levels of moisture. Wood underlayments must have moisture content below 12% using a Tramex or Delmhorst wood moisture meter. For concrete slabs with excessive moisture levels, use MS Plus in conjunction with Koester/Taylor 1410 Platinum MAC System.
