Adhesive Prep

Available U.S. Only
Adhesive Residue Encapsulator

TriSeal® is a light-colored, high-strength acrylic polymer compound formulated to isolate old cutback and other adhesive residues that would discolor or affect the bond of the new flooring installation. Black asphalt-based cutback adhesive is highly reactive with vinyl back flooring and must be completely removed until there are no remaining trowel ridges or continuous film. TriSeal can be used to isolate the remaining permanent stain after the cutback has been removed. Prior to the installation of floor covering systems, TriSeal provides a clean surface for better adhesive bonds. It is solvent-free and low VOC.

TriSeal contains MicroSept® Antimicrobial System Protection to protect the product from bacterial and fungal growth. TriSeal is FloorScore® certified for Indoor Air Quality, CRI™ Green Label Plus approved by The Carpet and Rug Institute for Indoor Air Quality, and Cradle to Cradle Certified™ at the PLATINUM Level for Material Health. TriSeal is designed and warranted for use only in conjunction with adhesives manufactured by XL Brands/Bostik.
