I am going to do kitchen in my new rent and it needs a floor. I am going to be putting 18×18” self stick tiles. The existing floor was tore up, which originally was carpet glues to a plywood sub-floor. Now the floor has the carpet backer pattern on it ( in the old glue). I am not confident that self stick tiles will adhere to a base like that.

My question is will regular VCT glue ( for non-self stick tiles) work with the sticky type tiles? I would like to go with the glue for added strength. I choose not to use commercial VCT grade for a kitchen. This is a rental place so I will not use ceramic.

Any ideas, I’d like to try it but I am worried about glue compatibility, this is something I want to do once, it needs to last at least 3 years.

Hmm, I never use those kinds of products, but generally if you scrape down the old glues, you’ll do ok. There’s an article

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fcimag.com%2FArticles%2FFeature_Article%2F6988a17bbfced010VgnVCM100000f932a8c0____&ei=2wIwT58tkr7YBZ2R0eIO&usg=AFQjCNF4WBtaNeYXThcXAahcNhIdd5ojiQ

which talks some about installing VCT, but not specifically self sticking.

There were animals in this apt before so i think I am going to paint the floor. After thats all set I’ll install a new luan sub-floor. But my question still stands, Will vct glue stick to the self stick tiles, I am concerned with the chemical reaction preventing the stickyness.

That was a very helpful article and thanks for the good read.

If you have had animals in it then there were wet spots that soaked in and left an odor. I would get something like Activate Plus and spray the floor generously and then let it dry before painting it. This gets rid of the urine odor as well as anything I have used. This is bought in janitorial supply places. It is an enzyme that takes care of most odors.
