AAT-390 is a solvent free, copolymer adhesive specifically designed for the professional installation of marine carpets and sheet vinyl. (This adhesive will not bond marine padding!!) You must use a solvent adhesive. We recommend using the Bird Song Adhesive. AAT-390 offers excellent resistance to moisture when fully cured. AAT-390 is compatible with most carpet backings and felt back sheet goods. AAT-390 is non-flammable, freeze - thaw stable (if allowed to freeze, thaw out at room temperature (70oF+) before using, do not stir adhesive while ice crystals are present). This adhesive is protected by the CleanGuard® two-stage antimicrobial. CleanGuard® is a specifically formulated broad-spectrum, anti-microbial agent that protects our adhesives and sealers from microorganisms, such as mold or mildew, in both the wet and dry state. AAT-390 Marine and Exterior Adhesive is recommended for the following installations: A. Marine and outdoor carpets with the following backings: a. Rubber-backed (Marine, waffle, foam) b. Non-backed (Tufted or woven) c. Woven polypropylene (ActionBac®) d. Latex unitary e. Jute f. PVC g. Polyurethane cushion (Enhancer®, Kangaback®) Not for use with carpets having urethane unitary backings.
Note: Aluminum surfaces must be sanded before adhering floorcovering to remove aluminum oxide which will weaken the bond. Aluminum and steel surfaces must be cleaned with a mild solvent (naptha or mineral spirits) before applying the adhesive to remove oils or greases. When used over rubber roof coatings, a permanent bond is formed. Fiberglass surfaces must be sanded and vacuumed. Make sure to thoroughly clean fiberglass surfaces with denatured alcohol or methanol cleaner and let dry. AAT-390 is NOT for use on pressure-treated wood. *Clean and abraded to provide for a mechanical bond
