Bonding artificial grass, come rain or shine: With the temperamental British weather we have, attempting to bond in damp conditions is the bane of many artificial grass installers lives. Wasted days, hours and even weeks waiting for the optimum conditions to bond the carpet are costing the industry time, money and even penalty clauses as the job gets delayed and pushed back.
One of the most common adhesive systems used for bonding artificial grass to seam tape is a two-component polyurethane adhesive. These systems give an excellent bond and there are many products, from well known brands, which are available.
But there is a universal problem with these commonly available products. They can’t cope with bonding in damp conditions.
This issue has been apparent for many years but now there is a solution to this problem – Henko R300
Henko R300 is a two-component polyurethane adhesive which has been developed by Dutch company, Henko A&T, which specifically overcomes this issue.
This unique formulation allows the adhesive to be bonded in damp conditions, so when the day is wet you can continue doing what you are best at doing – getting the job done
One new client of Ureka said “My colleague told me that Henko R300 would bond in we conditions unlike your competition. I didn’t believe him and told him to prove it by bonding some grass which was in a puddle fully submerged. So he did and it cured – I couldn’t believe it!”
Packed in either a 6.85kg or 13.7kg kit, R300 is easy to mix, easy to spread and gives an excellent strength when fully cured.
Used widely in high performance applications like football and rugby fields, R300 is rapidly becoming the preferred choice for grass bonding adhesive. Equally, R300 performs well in domestic, leisure and other sports field applications
Henko products are available in UK through their dedicated stockist and distributor Ureka Global Ltd, who also have the full range of adhesives, tools and maintenance equipment in stock
