When asked what the manufacturer is doing to up its environmental game, Phillip Pitts, marketing manager for hardwood and rubber flooring adhesives, responded, “Nothing. We haven’t done anything because we’ve been ahead of the curve.” He said Bostik set the bar to earn LEED credits and all its products are compliant with South Coast Air Quality Management District regulations as mandated by the California state government.

Its new UltraSet Single Step streamlines the installation process as a multi-functioning adhesive, moisture vapor barrier with acoustical sound reduction. “It features zero VOCs and post consumer-recycled content from used rubber tires,” Pitts said.

With environmental and technological demands from today’s consumer, Bostik’s adhesives—particularly those for hardwood—continue to sell very well. “When most end users think of hardwood flooring, they desire traditional floors like in Grandpa’s house,” Pitts explained. “The perception is that when you walk on a floating floor, it feels hollow, like a temporary situation. It doesn’t sound or feel the same.”
