Installation & Resources
Answer: Alpha Systems’ Tuff-Ply Flooring is a TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) flooring membrane with a spun polyester (fleece) backing.
Answer: Alpha Systems only recommends Alpha supplied water base adhesives, 3080 or 3011 TPO adhesive, in the installation of Tuff-Ply Flooring. The adhesive is sold in one gallon pails, five gallon pails, 55 gallon drums, or 316 gallon totes.
Answer: Apply Alpha Systems’ adhesive to the porous substrate with a brush, roller, or trowel. Your surface should be free of dirt, oil, or other contaminants. Apply a coat of adhesive to the surface (16-20 mils) then mate with the Tuff-Ply Flooring membrane. The adhesive open time is 5-10 minutes. Use a 70 lb. linoleum roller (or equivalent) to apply pressure so that the adhesive can properly penetrate into the fleece. It is always a good idea to roll the membrane in both directions to eliminate all air pockets. Immediately following the rolling process, mechanically fasten the perimeter of the Tuff-Ply Flooring.
Answer: Alpha Systems currently has three different, but distinct flooring patterns to choose from. Tuff-Ply levant has an orange-peel textures and is popular in the marine industry.
