KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic is a highly adhesive asphalt cement expressly designed for mastic use in cold application of wood block flooring.
Preparation & Application
The temperature of KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic when applied should be above 70F. If necessary, KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic may be warmed by storing containers in a heated room prior to application. Concrete floors must be dry, sound, level, clean and at least 30 days old, with a good wood float finish or equal. Grease, oil stains and dust must be removed, and high spots levelled. Low areas should be filled with concrete patching mix. Let dry thoroughly after cleaning or patching. Dusty or very porous surfaces should be primed with KARNAK #108 Asphalt Primer at the rate of 1/2 to 1 gallon per 100 sq. ft. KARNAK #108 Asphalt Primer must be fully cured, (dry to the touch), before application of KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic.
Karnak #79 Wood Block Mastic should be applied directly from the container. Spread at the rate of 1 gallon per 40 to 50 sq. ft. using a 1/16 inch serrated mastic trowel with a sawtooth pattern. Apply the KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic only at recommended rates of coverage. An inadequate amount will result in poor bonding, while an excessive amount may cause bleeding of the mastic between the blocks. KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic must be allowed to dry a minimum of at least 2 to 3 hours or until the surface is dry to the touch. Installation of the wood blocks to the KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic may be safely delayed up to 24 hours if desired. Drying is hastened if adequate ventilation is provided. Do not apply blocks to wet or excessive KARNAK #79 Wood Block Mastic. Application instructions of the wood block manufacturer take precedence and should be followed in close detail to ensure a satisfactory application.
