In the fast pace world of floor covering, there are many changes with style and design. There are also new ways that products can be installed. Karndean has offered K91-A as a tack set vinyl tile and plank adhesive as a great way to install your Karndean floor for the past several years.

Now Karndean is introducing a one coat-roller applied LVT adhesive called DrySet.

DrySet is a solvent free, easy to use advanced aqueous adhesive suitable for interior installations of luxury vinyl tile (LVT). The adhesive is applied using a 3/8” nap paint roller and dries quickly to facilitate fast installation times. Coverage is approximately 350-450 square feet per gallon. That’s a lot!


  • Roller-applied with a 3/8” nap roller • Dries fast in as little as 15 minutes
  • Outstanding shear resistance


A roll-on application method is recommended to achieve a smooth even full-spread coating. Spread rate and drying time of the adhesive will depend on the porosity and texture of the substrates and the ambient temperature and relative humidity.

Note: For applications over very porous substrates or profiled floors or membranes, a second coat of DrySet should be applied, with the second coat being applied after allowing the first coat to dry completely (the dry film will have slight residual tack). It is not freeze/thaw stable and the safest way to ship is on our truck.

Dry-Set Adhesive is available in 1-gallon and 4-gallon pails. For more information contact your Territory Manager today.
