Prior to marine carpet installation:
- Insure that the pontoon boat deck surface is sound, smooth and level.
- The pontoon boat deck surface must be free from paint, varnish, oil, grease and/or any other contaminant
- Remove dirt and dust with vacuum.
- Secure loose boards by re-nailing, re-screwing or re-gluing.
- Condition the pontoon floor covering and carpet adhesive at a minimum of 65° F, 35% to 65% relative humidity 48 hours prior to use.
Boat carpet and carpet glue installation instructions:
- After proper pontoon deck surface preparation, unroll the boat carpet over the pontoon boat deck. Determine that the boat carpet roll is of sufficient length and width to cover your pontoon boat deck. Center the boat carpet and adjust for an equal overhang on all four pontoon sides. Pull out any boat carpet wrinkles or folds that may exist.
- Place a weighted object(s) at one end of the pontoon deck. Starting at the end opposite the weight, roll or fold the boat carpet back exposing at least half of the marine plywood pontoon decking.
- Open the carpet glue, pouring a portion of the carpet adhesive down the center of the pontoon marine plywood decking, in a serpentine pattern, to where the boat carpet is rolled back. The coverage rate for this carpet glue is approx. 65 square feet per gallon.
- Using a clean, medium nap paint roller, spread the carpet adhesive evenly over the marine plywood surface. The coverage of the carpet glue adhesive should represent a heavy coat of paint. Do not allow the carpet glue adhesive to puddle and do not leave any dry spots on the pontoon deck's surface.
- While the carpet glue adhesive is wet, unroll the boat carpet back to its previous position. Take precautions that the boat carpet is straight and wrinkle free. If a wrinkle does exist, slightly lift the boat carpet off the carpet glue adhesive to remove.
- Using a stiff push broom or carpet/vinyl core, apply pressure over the bonded area. This will assist to distribute the carpet glue adhesive evenly and provide consistent contact between the boat carpet and pontoon wood decking. If any exist, make sure all air pockets are pressed out from under the boat carpet.
- Remove the weighted object(s), roll or fold back the remaining boat carpet and repeat the process as described above.
Clean up any tools with warm soapy water.
Note: The boat carpet can be walked on immediately after installation. Excessive walking could cause wrinkles to occur. Use precaution and always inspect the area after contact.
In dry weather conditions and temperatures between 60° and 90°F, the adhesive will begin to cure after 3-4 hours. It is recommended that the adhesive be allowed to cure completely (usually 24 hours) before installing objects on the deck surface. Also, protect the uncured adhesive from adverse weather conditions prior to full cure.
