How does InstaLay work?

Our self-adhesive acoustic underlay InstaLay is transforming the way floors are installed.

InstaLay integrates our high performing acoustic underlay with a high grab dry adhesive. The unique self-adhesive layer means no drying time and minimum downtime for residential and commercial properties, making InstaLay the ideal solution for areas in constant use. The adhesive we use is pressure sensitive, so foot traffic on the floor actually improves the initial bond.

Our self-adhesive underlay saves time and cost, as InstaLay can be loose laid directly over existing flooring with no need to uplift floors or repair subfloors before installation. Dry adhesive makes the future lifting of flooring easier too, supporting recyclability.

  • The release film is peeled back and new flooring can be positioned and pressed directly onto InstaLay
  • Available with high-grab adhesive for permanent bonding, or low-grab for easy future lifting
  • Partners with solid, engineered and laminate wood floors, LVTs, ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles, carpet tiles and carpets
  • Use with unique floor coverings from Innov8floors to deliver a compete flooring solution
  • Ideal for private homes and housing with multiple occupants as well as hospitality, retail, healthcare, education and leisure applications
