In this course we examine the differences between construction adhesives based on their core chemical makeup. We will compare and contrast VOC regulations and restrictions for indoor air versus those for outdoor air. We will also discuss the challenge for specifying adhesives posed by LEED v4 design restrictions. The presentation will compare the most commonly referenced subfloor adhesive performance specifications, identify their similarities and differences, and point out how lab conditions can differ from “real world” field conditions.
