We can all agree that an easy-to-use product makes our jobs and lives less stressful. The easier a product is to use, the faster it makes your process.
In case you missed our last post, we mentioned the three benefits of using a pressure sensitive adhesive to install carpet tiles. One major benefit that we didn’t cover (we thought it was deserving of its own post) is ease of use.
Some carpet tile installation methods have a few barriers that can slow down the process or make it more difficult. An easy-to-use solution, pressure sensitive adhesives can reduce some common carpet installation pains.
What Makes Pressure Sensitive Adhesives Easy to Use?
- No learning curve – PSAs require little to no training for workers to easily complete carpet tile installation.
- Ready to apply – PSAs come in uniform consistency, ready to apply to carpet tiles. Unlike liquid carpet adhesives, they don’t require you to calculate the adhesive amount for consistent coverage. PSAs already provide the adequate amount of adhesive needed.
- Quick application – Traditional carpet adhesives commonly require application by spray, roller or trowel. Spreading the adhesive over the entire floor can be time consuming. Using an adhesive transfer gun, pressure sensitive adhesive strips can be quickly applied to the carpet tile in several key anchor points.
- Fewer application points – Pressure sensitive adhesives, specifically strips, require only a single strip per anchor point be applied to the carpet tile. Many pressure sensitive adhesives require multiple adhesive sections per anchor point. Applying one strip eliminates having to count individual dots of adhesive during application, decreasing the chance of user error.
