The CaberFix range, which can be used with many of West Fraser’s panel products, comprises three glue types and two choices of adhesive tape; having been developed for a wide variety of applications and performance requirements.
CaberFix D3 is a PVA adhesive created specifically for use along Tongue & Groove joints on West Fraser’s chipboard flooring range, especially in conjunction with CaberFloor P5, CaberDek and CaberAcoustic. Requiring no fillers, it is fast setting and forms a strong and rigid glue line – while it conforms to DIN EN 204 D3 and BS 476 part 6.
Solvent-free CaberFix D4, meanwhile is a one-component polyurethane adhesive for use with CaberDek, CaberShieldPlus and CaberFloor boards. It allows the user to see where a seal is made and is ideal for both bonding flooring boards to joists and securing T&G joints; as well as for sealing the edges of boards.
100% waterproof, CaberFix Joint & Joist is used to create a flexible, but strong and squeak free bond, which can be applied to the tongues and grooves between boards, as well as a variety of other materials including CaberDek boards. Resistant to temperature extremes, this PU adhesive can, usefully, be applied in damp conditions.
CaberFix Tape is a high-performance polyethylene-coated cloth tape, which is 100% waterproof and used for sealing exposed joints as well as perimeter edges. UV-resistant for durability, this easy-to-use solution seals CaberDek edges to walls, and also protects joints during construction phases, even on uneven surfaces.
Acrylic CaberFix X-treme tape has been specially developed for use in extreme weather conditions down to -21oC. The super-strong, scuff-resistant tape can be applied under damp conditions and will not lift when wet; while it also boasts a high tack point: meaning CaberFix X-treme tape has a high initial grab, and gains strength over time.
