Dry Sigaway® Roll Adhesives
This is the ultimate technology for installing floor coverings without wet adhesives. Sigaway® is a full-surface, textile re-enforced double sided self stick adhesive from the roll. Use for full surface installation of carpet, sheet vinyl, sheet rubber or tiles over glue -down carpet, solid vinyl sheet, tile, VCT, new or old concrete, or old ceramic tile. It has limited or restricted suitability over wood, epoxy or terrazzo. Ideal for renovation projects.
Textile re-enforced, double sided, self stick ESD conductive adhesive. Use for releasable full surface installation of ESD conductive vinyl sheet or tile, or sheet rubber over new or old concrete or ceramic tile. It has limited suitability over old wood, failed epoxy or terrazzo. It is also used to install new ESD carpet over old non-ESD glue-down carpet.
Sigaway® is a full surface textile re-enforced double sided self stick roll flooring adhesive. It is VOC free, free of odors, carcinogens, out-gassing and is totally safe for people. The adhesive is acrylic based, plasticizer resistant, contains no formaldehydes and has unrestricted waste disposal. Sigaway® has a lower adhesive strength to the old flooring and a high strength adhesion to the new flooring. Installations (i.e. carpet tile over access floors, trenches, or old carpet) are releasable. (See restrictions in detailed installation instructions).
WGPT39R, Sigaway Original Rolls 39.5″ x 82’6″ (1 m x 25 m)
WSIG-C1, Sigaway Electronic Rolls 39.5″ x 82’6″ (1 m x 25 m
Sigaway® may be installed only over dry (<3.0 lb/1000 sft.) structurally sound firm dust and oil-free surfaces, such as concrete, old glue-down carpet, VAT, vinyl composition tile, homogeneous vinyl sheet or tile, poured epoxy, ceramic, stone or terrazzo. It may be used over steel or HPL covered access floors. It may be used over wood and parquet, plywood and laminates only if these sub-floors are free of acrylic finishes and are not directly installed over on-grade or below-grade concrete without an air space between the concrete and the wood products (Moisture!!). Dry adhesive may not be used over gypsum patches. Not suitable for outdoor installations.
New Flooring, Sigaway Original
Sigaway® may be used to adhere carpet with jute, Action Bac®, SBR foam back, Unibond and carpet tile with glass fiber reinforced vinyl backings or bituminous backings. It is also used to install solid vinyl sheet or tile.
New Flooring, Sigaway Electronic
Sigaway® Electronic may be used to adhere ESD conductive AZO Berber carpet rolls or tile with an integral conductive backing. It is also used to install WSV conductive solid vinyl sheet, WPR 2-ply Rubber, and StatMat 200 Rubber .
Unsuitable New Flooring
Dimensionally non-stable flooring products, rubber sheet or tile, vinyl composition tile (dusty back), wood or laminate floors, cork, cocos are not suitable. Certain recycled rubber flooring has limited suitability. Recycled EPDM based rubber is not suitable.
Advantages of Installation with Sigaway® Dry Adhesive
Save the dust, debris, expense of disposal of old flooring and re-prepping of old sub-floors necessitated by tear out. Dry adhesive has no open time. It can be laid directly over old floors. Vinyl may be heat welded immediately. Installations may be subjected to rolling loads and heavy traffic without waiting.
Roll out Sigaway® perpendicular to new flooring. Overlap and double cut seams. For carpet over carpet use Siga construction tape to re-enforce perimeters and seams beneath the Sigaway®. Unroll new carpet or vinyl, seam seal as per manufacturer’s specifications. Roll and put into service.
Siga Circuit is a textile re-enforced double sided electrically conductive adhesive, 1.6″ or 8″ wide. Siga Circuit is used to electrically bridge conductive flooring which is installed over non-conductive Sigaway® Original.
Siga Copper Tape
Siga Copper tape is a 1/2″ strip of adhesive backed copper metal. It is used to bridge and connect conductive adhesive flooring installations to ground.
