ASK JW: The Importance of Adhesive Thickness

Throughout my decades of being in this industry, I have witnessed some crazy tools being used to apply turf adhesives. I have seen drywall spatulas, cardboard, turf scraps, folded seaming tape, and, yes, a paper cup. Using an improper tool to apply the adhesive will cause the seam to fail. During my travels and training, I have asked turf installers if they were familiar with the turf adhesives they were using, and many of them had no idea how crucial the application rate and thickness can be. Most of them admitted that they have never read labels on their turf adhesive, nor researched how the adhesive even works.

 

This month, Ask JW will stress the importance of adhesive thickness and how using the improper application tool will wreak havoc on your turf installations.
