Pontoon boat carpet adhesive for rubber back marine grade carpet.
Specifically formulated to work with rubber backed, marine-grade pontoon boat carpet and marine grade vinyl flooring. Each gallon covers an 100sf or an 8'6" x 12' section. If you try to use less glue than is recommended your glue will not bond to the carpet or vinyl and it will come up; create wrinkles, lines or bubbles across your pontoon's deck.
NOTE: This adhesive will not work if you are trying to install vinyl flooring to an aluminum or fiberglass deck. You will require a solvent based glue for this application, water based glue needs to evaporate in order to form a bond and the vinyl with an aluminum/fiberglass deck will not allow the necessary airflow for bonding. You can find solvent based indoor/outdoor glue at any home improvement store.
Q: Why do I need to use marine carpet glue?
A: It is very important to use the proper type of carpet adhesive when you are working with marine-grade, rubber backed boat carpet. All marine carpeting uses a special weather resistant backing that can be damaged by most harsh adhesives. If you do not use a glue that is formulated for marine or indoor outdoor carpeting you run the risk of ruining the backing on your carpet. Harsh adhesives will eat and destroy the back of marine-grade carpeting. If for some reason you cannot buy our carpet glue be sure that the adhesive you use says for use on marine rubber backed carpeting or indoor outdoor carpet.
Q: How much marine carpet glue do I need?
A: Each gallon of glue will cover a 100 square foot area when applied with a medium nap paint roller. If you have a 16', 20' or 24' pontoon boat you will need 2 gallons of glue. For larger pontoon boats with 25' or more of deck you will need 3 gallons of glue.
