Contractors bond with Stix® 2199 multi-use adhesive

XL Brands, an industry leader in adhesives and installation systems for building construction, introduces Stix 2199, a transitional, multi-use adhesive to the North American marketplace.

Stix 2199 is a solvent-free adhesive with aggressive tack, engineered for installation of vinyl and non-vinyl-backed modular carpet tile, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), luxury vinyl plank (LVP), sheet flooring, VCT and fiberglass reinforced vinyl sheet. One major benefit offered by Stix 2199 is that it contains MicroSept® Advanced Antimicrobial System, which protects the adhesive from bacterial and fungal growth. This adhesive also features an extended 6 hour working time and high moisture resistance up to 99% RH and 12.0 pH.

“This is such a contractor-friendly and high-performance product,” stated Dennis Layne, National Sales Manager of XL Brands. “In particular, when it’s used with carpet tile. Stix 2199 is formulated so each tile can be released and then re-bonded without substantial loss of tack. And, when it’s used with vinyl tile, vinyl plank or vinyl sheet flooring, the ultra-strong bonding properties of Stix 2199 are simply amazing!”

Stix 2199 is solvent-free, highly moisture-resistant and emitting very low VOC’s and has minimal (if any) odor.
