So I am installing a 5 mm glue down vinyl plank from a company that will remain nameless and I am having some issues. The primary floor is 3/4 plywood with 3/8” subfloor over top. Adhesive is Henry 695 being put down with a 1/16 square notch trowel. I usually let the adhesive flash off till it’s got some good legs before installation. My problem is that I am getting a few corners that are not going down. The product is cupped up a bit straight out of the box. I am by no means new to flooring, but there is a few too many corners that aren’t stuck down for my liking. It has a been a bit since my last flooring seminar, but I seem to remember that there could be issue with the layers of the vinyl plank not being put together evenly? This is the start of a large job, so I really don’t want to be fixing corners for the next 3 months. On the last unit I let the adhesive fully flash to pressure sensitive and it seemed to help a bit. First pic is dry laid, second is an example of a problem corner.
