Step 4
Touch the bottom of molding to the stair riser and carefully roll the
stair nose in place. Make any final adjustments before you push
the molding all the way down. Once it’s in the final position, press
down firmly with your hands and make your way down the entire
stair nose. It may take 2 or 3 passes to set it firmly in place.

Release Paper
Preparing the floor & molding as outlined is mandatory
to achieve the required bonding strength
1. Use a damp cloth (water only) to clean both surfaces of loose
particles or surface films.
2. Roughen the surfaces with sandpaper (100-150 grit),
sanding sponge or metal brush. For flooring, only roughen
up area that will be covered (1.25” to 1.5”).
3. Degrease both surfaces to remove all traces of oil, grease,
dust, and fingerprints by using a solvent such as methyl
ethyl ketone (MEK), acetone or isopropyl alcohol.
4. Let both surfaces dry thoroughly before applying adhesive.

Let the adhesive cure for at least 4 hours before any walking on it.
For exposure to full traffic, wait 24 to 48 hours.
NOTE: Complete cure takes 48 hours.
Install the riser flush to the stair. Glue down flooring planks
(for more details see manufacturers recommendations).
Then, clean flooring and molding as directed below:
Turn stair nose over and roughen the inside surface of the molding
to increase bond by means of 60 grit sandpaper, sanding sponge,
or a metal brush. Then, gently peel the release paper all the way
off the adhesive tape.
Next, apply a generous bead of a Premium Polyurethane
Construction Adhesive along the entire inside corner.
Be sure to overlap the tape with the adhesive
