Unique Characteristics

UNIVERSAL USE – all wood types, all situations

USP_universeel inzetbaar

Don’t give it another thought – Rubio® EasyBond makes it easy. The adhesive is suitable for almost all wood types and all substrates. Including solid and engineered parquet as well as sub-parquet, end-grain wood, cork and other challenging wood types. This new generation of adhesive takes the best from everything thus combining important properties such as strength and elasticity in the same adhesive, and complies with the “new” standard ISO 17178.

DURABLE, TOUGH AND ELASTIC ADHESION WITHOUT SOFTENING AGENTS

USP_duurzame hard-elastische lijm

Your customer wants a nice floor that will stand the test of time and so will not start to warp or form seams. This is precisely why we chose an adhesive with no softening agents and that is tough and elastic, two qualities that make for a durable parquet adhesive.

no softening agents = no premature ageing

Schema_weekmakers

Softening agents are oily liquids that are added to synthetics in order to make these more flexible. This can be compared with adding water to clay whereby the clay becomes suppler. Softening agents make adhesive very elastic and cheap.  The adhesive loses its elasticity over time due to the migration of the softening agents. This process is accelerated in the case of underfloor heating.

Rubio® EasyBond parquet adhesive contains no softening agents but has a high polymer content making the adhesive harder but also more durable with a greater adhesive capacity. The fact that Rubio® EasyBond contains no softening agents means there is no migration, the adhesive’s composition does not change so there is no risk of premature ageing. This makes the parquet adhesive extremely suitable for underfloor heating. 

Everything remains in it’s place

Schema_schotelen

An adhesive that is too elastic will give the wood too much flexibility and an adhesive that is too stiff will break. The tough and elastic composition of Rubio® EasyBond gives wood just enough flexibility but not so much that the wood starts to become distorted or cupped. This type of adhesive is also easy to sand and can also be used as a filler.

HIGH-QUALITY ALTERNATIVE FOR TWO-COMPONENT PU ADHESIVE

USP_alternatief voor 2pu

A parquet adhesive whereby quality is the top priority often calls for a two-component polyurethane adhesive due to the fast hardening, very good adhesion and its tough and elastic character. Rubio® EasyBond is the perfect alternative: it offers the same advantages without the inconveniences of a 2-component PU adhesive. It consists of one component, there are no odours, left-over adhesive is easy to remove from the floor and there are no black hands or isocyanates in the adhesive so no allergic reactions of the skin.

LASTING SOUND INSULATION

ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE – 0% VOC

USP_ecologisch verantwoord

Rubio® EasyBond parquet adhesive is solvent free and so is not hazardous to the environment. The adhesive also contains no isocyanates so the danger of skin allergies is minimal. Adhesive residue can simply be removed from the bucket after hardening whereby the empty bucket can be perfectly recycled.

HIGH RESISTANCE AND HIDING POWER

USP_hoog standvermogen

The right choice of rheological additives makes for a high level of resistance. This will allow the adhesive to move through so the grains and the adhesive strips remain nicely upright resulting in a nice even surface for the parquet  in combination with easy hideability.

SUPERIOR ADHESION

USP_superieure hechting

Rubio® EasyBond was subjected to all possible tests both in the laboratory and on actual sites. We therefore venture to say with certainty and the necessary pride that Rubio® EasyBond offers superior adhesion thanks to its high polymer content. In normal circumstances, it is therefore also not necessary to first apply a primer to a healthy substrate. Consult the technical data sheet for more details.

NO RISK OF DAMAGE TO THE SURFACE FINISH

USP_bechadiging afwerkingslaag

Rubio® EasyBond contains no softening agents meaning there is no migration and the adhesive’s composition does not change. This is why you don’t need to worry about damage to the surface finish afterwards as the adhesive simply contains nothing that can migrate to the wood. Very reassuring, isn’t it?

FAST AND DURABLE HARDENING

USP_doorharding

The parquet can be polished after 12 hours, saving a great deal of time compared to other adhesives. Because there are no softening agents in the adhesive, these cannot migrate and we can guarantee durable adhesion.
