Adhesive for rubber/vinyl coin flooring

Recommended Posts

For those of you that have finished your own wheel houses, and installed the rubber/vinyl coin floor, what type of adhesive did you use? I've been looking, and reading the labeling on various  products, and either they are not suitable for the material, or they are for interior use only. I've read that the green treated sub-floor can also be a problem for adhesion. Any information will be appreciated.

You should be fine without adhesive.  Staple around the perimeter (under the trim), and use screws in your catch covers to hold it in place in the middle.

Thanks for the reply LRG, but I can't seem to get it to lay flat? There are large ripples a couple feet long that won't flatten out. Any ideas?

I'd first try laying it out in the sun on concrete for a few hours if you can.....works for heavy-duty contractor lawn edging, bet it'll help that too.  If not, you're not out anything. :)

I would definitely get it as warm as you can somehow like RebelSS suggested with the sun.  I put my coin flooring in last December (inside a 70 degree shop) and screwed down the edges and with the catch cover screws.  I get a few ripples in the flooring when the furnace is on but I really think if I put it in during the summer you won't have a problem.  Glue is fairly cheap and easy to do but makes it a complete pain if you ever need to replace it.
