F Ball - F41 Styccobond Carpet Tile Tackifier

STYCCOBOND F41 is a solvent free acrylic polymer emulsion adhesive that contains a rust inhibitor. It is designed to provide a permanently tacky film which prevents ‘looselay’ carpet tiles from moving under normal traffic but enables them to be lifted and replaced easily when required. It is non-flammable, is protected against biodegradation, is suitable for use over normal underfloor heating installations, is resistant to plasticiser migration and will withstand normal wet cleaning techniques.

STYCCOBOND F41 can be used for securing a wide range of carpet tiles backed with bitumen/felt, non-woven fabric, PVC and other polymer backings. 

STYCCOBOND F41 can also be applied to STOPGAP smoothing underlayments, structurally sound, smooth, dry subfloors of concrete and sand/cement screed, plywood, flooring grade chipboard and hardboard.

STYCCOBOND F41 can also be applied to non-absorbent subfloors such as STOPGAP Waterproof Surface Membranes, Raised Access Flooring Panels, Steel, Terrazzo, Granolithic, Linoleum and Vinyl Floorcoverings. Sound flooring grade asphalt must be skimmed with a minimum of 3mm of the appropriate STOPGAP smoothing underlayment.


Technical Information:

  • Appearance: Viscous Liquid
  • Colour: White
  • Available in 20ltr and 5ltr capacity
  • Drying Time (approx.): 30 minutes depending on temperature, humidity and absorbency of the subfloor
  • Coverage (approx.): 7m2 per litre with a roller
    20 litres Tub = 140m2 
    5 litres Tub = 35m2
    Note: Coverage rates will depend on the condition and absorbency of the subfloor


Using the brush or roller, apply the adhesive evenly to the subfloor, over the whole area to be covered. Allow to dry to a clear, tacky film before placing the carpet tiles in position, pressing firmly from the centre outwards and paying particular attention to the edges. When used over a raised access panel system, the tackifier should be poured into a tray and applied carefully using a roller to avoid excess adhesive seeping between individual panels and achieve the recommended coverage figure.

Installation of PVC backed carpet tiles over vinyl floorcoverings - Apply STYCCOBOND F41 by brush or roller in bands to the back of the tile, avoiding the edges. Allow to dry before placing the tile in position.

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


Do not place the tiles before the adhesive has dried to a clear film. This can result in a permanent bond being formed. In heavy traffic areas e.g. where concentrated stiletto heel or heavy wheeled traffic is anticipated, permanently bonding tiles has been found to help extend their life. Consult the tile manufacturer for advice in these situations.


STYCCOBOND Paint Roller or medium stiff broom. Tools should be cleaned with warm soapy water while the adhesive is still wet.


Store between 5ºC and 30°C. Protect from frost.

Shelf Life:

12 months in unopened containers stored under good conditions.
