will this adhesive work well on self stick vinyl tile? I put self adhesive tiles on top of old adhesive tiles but they keep sliding instead of drying.

Answer: 
you cannot lay new tile over old without using a self levelor product over the old tile or scuffing the old tile for adhesion. Or you can do some real work by removing the old tile.

This tile adhesive will NOT work well when applied to an existing tile floor. Yes, it can be used with self-adhesive tiles and it works quite well when the bonding capabilities of the self-adhesive tile alone is insufficient. However, as I stated in my opening sentence, it will not work well when applying self-adhesive tiles over existing vinyl tiles. My recommendations are to either remove the existing floor tile so you have a good beginning point for a proper tile installation or apply a thin layer of sub-floor over the existing vinyl tile to allow for a surface better suited to apply self-adhesive tiles (with or without the tile adhesive).

Use "Goo-Gone", but DO NOT spray or poor the goo-gone directly on the tile or floor.

Remember this, Goo-Gone can remove tile adhesive so you MOST certainly DO NOT want to soak the floor with it because if it gets underneath the tile it will ruin the tile adhesive which is currently bonding the tile to your floor. Less is more when using Goo-Gone and NEVER apply it directly to the floor, use a clean cloth or heavy duty paper towel with very small amounts of Goo-Gone on it. As you remove the adhesive frequently switch to a clean unused section of the cloth/paper towel to avoid smearing the very adhesive you are removing back onto the tile. Read Less

Answer: 
While it is wet, use hot, soapy water. We kept a wet rag next to us while we were laying the tile and it worked pretty good. It is inevitable that you will end up with some dried residue, as the adhesive has a tendency to seep before drying. A little mineral spirits on a rag will soften and remove this residue. Be sure to dispose of the used rag in a metal container.

Answer: 
If you use a 1/16 x 1/32 x 1/32 "U" notch VCT or VET trowel, on a level not overly porous surface, the approximate coverage is 225 to 250 square feet of coverage. The exact coverage varies greatly depending on variables such as, the type and size of the notch of the trowel, the surface being applied to (i.e. very porous surface, uneven surface, concrete, lauan, etc.), and the thickness and evenness of Read More

Generally, if the adhesive is applied evenly with a 1/16 x 1/32 x 1/32 "U" notch trowel on a fairly level and not overly porous surface you will achieve the coverage range indicated above.

Answer: 
Andy-
Depending on the trowel you are using will determine the coverage of square feet per gallon. I have attached a picture to show the square footage per gallon by flooring type and trowel size. I hope this helps, should you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you for choosing Roberts!

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's Sticky! We used this, just this past weekend and boy oh boy is it sticky! I recommend wearing disposable latex gloves through the entire process. I don't know how, but I always somehow managed to get it on my hands, even when being so careful. just opening the lid it transferred to my fingers. Use a trowel, small notches and a roller to flatten them out. or better yet, use a putty knife and scoop some out onto the floor, working in a 5'x5' area use the roller to spread it out in a thin even layer. Let it dry until it dries to a dark amber color. DO NOT place your tiles down if it's still cream colored. Once you can touch your finger to it, about 30 min, without it transferring to your finger it's ready to accept your tiles. If any gushes out the sides, you likely used too much. With the method I described above we didn't have any oozing. I recommend going ahead and spreading adhesive in your next area to be placed just before laying your ready area. By the time you finish setting your tiles your next area should be ready to accept your tile. This stuff stays sticky for a VERY long time! You've got at least 8 hours of set time to stick your tiles. So, there's no rush with this stuff. Just be sure you're aware, you'll have to wait for it to turn dark amber before you set your tiles and don't use too much. If you do the glue won't dry! A thin layer, like you'd roll out for painting a wall, is about all you'll need. We used thin smooth coat roller, not the sponge kind, and it worked great! May 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not made for rookies I am a rookie with this type of adheasive, I should have picked something else, but it gets everywhere and there is no tool that works stellar with this product and no glove you can wear that wont make things worse. It may be a good product, but for me it was a nightmare, I do contribute this more to my lack of experience with it. April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Use a proper trowel and follow the directions and this stuff works great. Put on too much, and not follow the directions, and this stuff will take forever and a day to dry. February 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awful product When installing the tile in my 2 bedrooms and bathroom, it took between 12-24 hours for it to finally be "tacky" to begin installing the tile. After that, the tile went down easy and holds very well. After about 2 months with no problems, the glue started to ooze out the sides, ruining a couple rugs and staining the edges of our white tile brown. 4 months later, I'm still cleaning up glue from the same edges EVERY DAY and it seems like its never going to stop. Would never use again. Terrible product. December 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Easy to Use The principle of this product is simple. Apply it to a clean level surface, allow it to dry (become tacky to the touch), and begin installing your tile; it truly is that simple. If you rush the installation of tile by not allowing the adhesive to properly dry (become tacky to the touch without the transfer of wet adhesive to your fingers) your tile will not adhere properly, and the installation will be messy. I had to use this adhesive on self-adhesive (peel and stick) tile because the peel and stick simply would not adhere entirely and firmly to the floor. Yes, I cleaned, leveled, and prepped the floor with a bond enhancer/primer as recommended by the tile manufacturer (IT DID NOT WORK). Often, self-adhesive tiles simply do not have sufficient bonding capabilities on concrete floors. Being a contractor, I knew the vinyl tile adhesive would work well and enhance the bond of the peel and stick. For this project I installed 680 18”x18” Stainmaster self-adhesive vinyl tiles, spaced 1/8” to receive vinyl tile grout, using the tile adhesive. The entire bonding surface of every tile is fully and completely adhered to the floor (including those areas which were not 100% level). This product works exceptionally well when used properly, and it is very easy to use; no mixing required. Simply open the container, apply thinly and evenly to floor with a "v" notch vinyl floor tile trowel, allow it to dry before beginning tile installation. February 25, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD Purchase today Thought I love , but I like it ... I am sinclair I am laying tile floor to a kitchen ... I dont use a trowel I use my hand My fingers get places a trowel can't.. IT IS VERY VERY STICKY !!!! It is yellow dries beige.. But don't touch it .... I love the PRO BETTER its like cement .... July 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extreme tackiness!!! This tile glue is awesome! The only drawback is my clutsy behind stepped and sat in it a couple times and was glued to the floor! I used paint thinner(mineral spirits) to remove it from other tiles, my shoes and I threw away the shorts I wore! It comes off of your skin easily with a wet washcloth and pumice cleaner. We used it in a wet, humid, dirty, hairy pet grooming salon. I will update about durability after a few months of use. The directions say that the tile can be moved easily but that was NOT our experience. Once the tile was down, there was NO moving it or replacing it. July 16, 2014
