Save Time with New Long-Reach Applicator for AdvanTech Subfloor Adhesive

AdvanTech Subfloor AdhesiveStaying up to date on the most efficient building practices is critical to meeting construction deadlines. The search for better building practices is leading many builders to make the switch to AdvanTech™ subfloor adhesive for its greater yield and ease of application over traditional cartridge adhesive. The speed and ease of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive was recently put to the test in a third-party study conducted by Home Innovation Research Labs.

The study revealed that when AdvanTech subfloor adhesive is applied using the new long-reach 28-inch gun applicator, the subfloor adhesive application process is 40% faster compared to the conventional polyurethane-based cartridge adhesive method.

One 24 oz. can of AdvanTech subfloor adhesive yields approximately 400 linear feet of gel adhesive at 1/2-inch bead compared to applying a 28 oz. cartridge adhesive at 3/8-inch bead. Coverage will vary based on bead size and weather conditions.

“Builders consistently give feedback that AdvanTech subfloor adhesive saves time on the job,” said David Wescott, accessories product director for Huber Engineered Woods. “This study provides substantial evidence that our spray-foam adhesive and new long-reach gun applicator are the fastest choice compared to cartridge adhesive options.”

Home Innovation timed simulated subfloor adhesive applications on 2-by-10 joists at 16 inches on center (OC) with adhesives at room temperature and at 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Timed tests were recorded for AdvanTech subfloor adhesive with the standard 12-inch spray foam gun applicator and the new long-reach 28-inch gun applicator. For comparison, timed tests were also recorded for a popular polyurethane-based cartridge adhesive and a common solvent-based traditional cartridge adhesive. Tests were conducted with third-party installation crews who are familiar with commonly used subfloor adhesive application methods and tools.

“Builders appreciate the gun applicator because it saves the extra work for forearms that cartridge application requires — especially under cold conditions,” Wescott said. “We found through this study that the new long-reach AdvanTech subfloor adhesive gun not only provides greater efficiency by extending the installer’s reach and a safer option to avoid stepping out on joists, but it also recorded the fastest application times.”

    Where can I get this product in Ontario, Canada?

    Do you offer a longer spray gun. We are starting a new build, first time using product. I would like to invest in a longer nozzle and a gun that’s not made of plastic.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Nicholas.

      The 28″ long reach applicator in the article is our longest available applicator. It’s long enough to where most people can reach a 4-foot line with minimal bending. The barrel and basket are steel for added durability – but it can bend if you try hard enough.

      The long reach applicator is currently available on Amazon, if you’re interested. If you have any questions on applicator maintenance or cleaning, you can find videos on the AdvanTech flooring YouTube channel. Feel free to reach out on tryadvantechsfa.com and we’ll be happy to walk you through it.
