Just completed Armstrong Vinyl Tile installation and adhesive is being
forced up between the tiles.
Rather than purchase an expensive solvent mixture I wondered if others had
found a good means of removal.

Was it self stick tile or did you slather on the adhesive yourself? If
self stick, call customer service and gripe about it. Armstrong has
been my preferred product for years and I've never had any problems
with the self stick tile. If you have, it definitely was a bad batch.
If it was the latter case, they should know the proper solvent to use.
Here comes the bad news. It sounds as if you didn't wait for the
adhesive to completely dry before installing the tile. It will
never dry and will continue to ooze until you decide to pull up
the floor and replace. The only other thing that could cause the
problem you are seeing is moisture in a concrete floor. Again,
the only solution will be remove and replace. If it is a moisture
problem, there are very limited solutions.
