Carpet to Cushion Installation

When applying carpet to cushion, select the appropriate adhesive and trowel notch size recommended by the carpet, cushion and adhesive manufacturer.  If recommendations are not available, refer to the general minimum guidelines in Table II – Trowel Size Minimum Guidelines at the end of this document.  Spread adhesive uniformly over the cushion with the specified trowel or other application procedure.  


After sufficient open time, the carpet is to be placed into the adhesive and rolled with the appropriate roller. Proper open time is critical for a successful installation.


NOTE:  When spreading adhesive over cushion, excessive trowel pressure reduces effective adhesive coverage rate.
