SikaBond 5500s – no bitumen removal*


Bitumen removal from parquet blocks?

  *This SikaBond 5500s adhesive does not require total bitumen removal. Most experienced reclaimed floor fitters use this professional product for laying down reclaimed parquet with bitumen on the underside. There may be occasions when this does not work but in most cases it does. Coverage is approx 1kg per 1 sq m. 2 x Sikabond 16 kg tub (minimum order) = £350.00 plus delivery £115  including VAT (London) or £95  including VAT- to most mainland UK postcodes, for any number of tubs above the minimum of 2, except the Scottish highlands and Islands - POA *flat rate for 2 or more tubs (delivery by licensed haulier - as this is a solvent).

Before buying your parquet we recommend that you request a sample so you know what to expect.
