The selection of adhesive is critical and there are many determining factors. Consideration of substrate, temperature, wet/dry conditions, application method, trowel size and labor required are all vital to making your selection. This chart is an aid but not a definitive guide. Please reference all TDS and SDS Information before making your final decision.

If the installer has minimal to no experience, please feel free to contact SynLok Customer Service at any time with questions and concerns. Our experienced installers are available to assist in unique applications. It is very common that we would recommend a bond test whenever possible if there are any concerns present.
