Questions & Answers
If I have 200 sq feet to tile how many containers of the #007 glue do I need?

I removed linoleum from concrete bathroom floor. There is a thin layer of linoleum glue left on the concrete floor. It is very thin (like a paint) and difficult to remove. Can the first "primer" coat of Tavy Thin-skin Glue be applied directly over the linoleum glue remaining or do I need to remove or rough up the glue residue prior to putting the first coat of Tavy Thin-skin on it?

I am highly allergic to epoxy glue, is this an epoxy product?
by Gail 6/19/2020 12:48:18 pm
This is water based but does contain some epoxy per the manufacturer. We would recommend staying away from this product if you are highly allergic to epoxy glues.
Some of the tavy glue got on the thin skin when I was applying to the floor. I cleaned off the glue, but it’s a little sticky.. will this mess up my skin coat of mortar and not allow it to adhere to the thin skin?

No, this will not mess it up as your thinset will still adhere to the surface.
Ratings & Reviews
Amazing product. My project involved tiling the insets on the front of my kitchen island. I could not use a thick backer board on the painted wood.
Tavy was the perfect solution. Very easy to use. The adhesive is thin enough to spread easily and evenly. Just follow the directions. Use a 1/8" inch v-notched trowel for a thinner application. The adhesive is extremely tacky (in the best way) so use disposable gloves. I masked off the areas around my work area.
This product is the perfect compliment to the Tavy paper and adheres really well. Odor is minimal. Drys pretty quickly.
So glad I found this product. It truly is the best solution when you have to keep the substrate more shallow
I have used the Tavy System several times with 100% success.
