I'm installing sheet vinyl on my basement floor and ran out of
adhesive with about ten sq ft remaining. I could buy a quart of
adhesive, but I've got some wall tile adhesive left over from a
kitchen remodeling job that will likely be discarded the next time I
clean out my storage area. Could I use this on my sheet vinyl floor?
Mike, I don't suppose anyone will say yeah, go ahead. They look
the same, they smell the same. I'd go for it, but that is not a
chemist speaking, nor anyone who has tried it before. Might call
the glue manufacturer's 1-800 number tomorrow. You already know
they won't give you a strong go ahead, but they could tell you how
dissimilar the adhesives might be.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
It sounds like you're not in a hurry (otherwise, you wouldn't be
willing to wait for an answer on usenet). I'd suggest applying some
on a piece of scrap vinyl and see what happens. If it's good after
a few days (a weekend project, maybe?), I'd go for it.
