    Exclusive Adhesives Enable More Homeowners To Experience Benefits Of Lumber Liquidators Solid Hardwood Floors

    ~ New testing shows adhesives hold up to 3/4-inch flooring in place; opens up installation options

    Sep 29, 2014

    TOANO, Va., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Over time, homeowners who couldn't nail into concrete subflooring haven't been able to enjoy the rich looks and extensive benefits of solid hardwood flooring. They just couldn't trust an adhesive to hold the thick flooring in place.

    Lumber Liquidators.

    Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL) offers a solution to the issue. The largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America is carrying an exclusive selection of Bostik adhesives that are warrantied to secure up to 3/4-inch solid hardwood flooring from lines including Bellawood, Builder's Pride, Casa De Colour, Clover Lea, Mayflower, Virginia Mill Works and Rio Verde.

    Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our uncompromising focus on quality includes working with partners that share this value. Bostik was able to identify a missing link that solved a frustrating issue for a very specific customer niche. Collaborations like this will continue differentiating Lumber Liquidators in the marketplace."

    The warrantied adhesives include Bostik UltraGrip™, Seal-N-Grip™ and DuraGrip™. UltraGrip™ eliminates the need for moisture vapor emission testing because of an advanced, proprietary chemistry called AXIOS™ Tri-Linking™ Polymer Technology that provides unlimited moisture vapor protection. In addition, Bostik's Thickness Control™ Spacer Technology, found in UltraGrip™ and Seal-N-Grip™, allows installers to work planks into place during installation without worrying about squeezing out adhesive from under the planks, ensuring that the proper adhesive membrane thickness and moisture protection is achieved.

    "Extensive research and testing have empowered us to make great strides in adhesive technology, and we back our products with a best-in-class warranty," said Eric J. Kurtz, Market Manager for Bostik. "We feel privileged to offer innovative solutions that expand capabilities and complement Lumber Liquidators' high quality flooring."
