Konecto Website Instructions

I just wanted to note on here that I checked Konecto USA's website today and they changed the roller methods required. I have 3 copies printed out from their website from about a month and 1/2 ago and compared them. They now state both a hand roller and 100lb. roller are required. Before on my printed instructions it states one OR both are required. So now after all this time they state what should have been there from the beginning.

Noted that we did both anyway. Maybe not with an "approved installers" roller. But we did use a "hand" roller plus the 100 lb. roller and stacked weight and etc. etc. etc..... still not sticking.....

They heeded my suggestions....finally...
I have been telling all to use a hand roller with the primary install and then use the 100 lb roller.

The very first job we did of Konecto I went out and bought me and my crew brand new handrollers, the ones in the toolboxes had trash on them from years of use, now these rollers are only used for Konecto. My years in the trade and the fact Konecto has a pressure sensitive epoxy told me that and immediate roll while installing would create the best bond with the flooring, then the follow up with the 100 lb roller would enact the pressure sensitive qualities of the glue.

Jenny you are correct, they never specified the hand roller in the old instruction forms.
You have certainly done your homework
