F Ball - F3 Styccobond Flooring Adhesive

STYCCOBOND F3 is a water based rubber/resin flooring adhesive that has excellent wet grab with an early build up of strength. It is protected against bio-degradation and is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations.

STYCCOBOND F3 can be used for securing fibre bonded carpets, hessian, felt, secondary latex and rubber foam backed carpets and cork tiles up to 3.2mm thick. 

F3 can also be used in conjunction with STYCCOBOND F2 Release Sealer to provide a RELEASE BOND system. In addition, F3 can be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, plywood, flooring grade chipboard and hardboard.

Technical Information:

  • Appearance: Viscous Liquid
  • Colour:Cream / Yellow
  • Open Time: Up to 15 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor
  • Coverage (approx.): 3m2 per litre using a 2mm x 6mm trowel; 15 litres = 45m2; 5 litres = 15m2; 2.5 litres = 7.5m2
    Note: Coverage rates will depend on the condition and absorbency of the subfloor
  • Available in 15ltr, 5ltr, 2.5ltr and 1ltr capacity


Holding the trowel at an angle of 60°, spread the adhesive evenly over an area of subfloor that can be covered whilst the adhesive remains receptive and gives good transfer.

Absorbent surfaces - lay the floorcovering immediately, except with cork tiles. 

Installing cork tiles and onto surfaces with little or no absorbency - allow the adhesive to dry partially to a paste-like consistency before laying the floorcovering. 

Deeply profiled or rough backed floorcoverings - it may be necessary to apply extra adhesive to ensure good contact. In such cases use a 3mm x 6mm ‘V’ notched trowel, this will reduce the coverage quoted. Some unitary backed carpets also require the large notched trowel.

Following the floorcovering manufacturer’s laying instructions lay the floorcovering into the adhesive and press from the centre outwards to exclude air and ensure overall contact with the adhesive. Roll with the 68kg flooring roller, from end-to-end and sideto-side (on foam backed floorcoverings use the styccobond Glyda) to ensure overall contact. 30 minutes later and when the floor has been completely covered roll or use the styccobond Glyda as necessary to ensure overall contact is maintained.

For any areas under question please consult the F Ball Technical team.


Do not apply loads or move furniture on the floorcovering until the adhesive has fully set. Do not allow the floorcovering to be wet cleaned until three weeks after laying.
