Directions for use:
Fiber-Lok may be applied to new and old rugs. Old rugs should be cleaned and dried. Remove any loose, flaky non-skid backing. Place rug, wall hanging or tapestry face down on a flat surface. (Protect workspace with newspaper or plastic sheet). Trim side selvage and corners to 1-1/2″ to 2″. Fold selvage toward back side of rug and secure with T-pins.
Simply brush the back side with a thin, even coat of Fiber-Lok. Two thin coats are better than one heavy application. Fiber-Lok will appear transparent when it is dry and ready to re-coat. The second coat should be applied within 12 hours of the first. Clean your brush with soap and cold water. Allow 1 week before washing rug. DO NOT dry clean rugs treated with Fiber-Lok or clean with a product that contains solvents. Fiber-Lok may slip on a wet surface.
Excellent product. Although the directions say to brush the material on. I did this for the first coats but since I had 4 rugs to do, the material starts setting up some in the brush and I would get another brush. It's very difficult to get all the little pieces out of the brushes. So...next day when I had the second coats to do I used a wallpaper tool and spatulas for patching drywall nail holes. Worked great!! It was quicker, easier on my wrists, and I would recommend this technique to anyone using the product.
I finally used it. I like it. My rug is now non-slip again. I like the rug but the non-slip backing pulled away. The Fiber-Lok held it all together & it now has a really stable non-slip back. I will buy this product again when the need arises.
Keeps rugs from slipping out from under your feet and causing a fall. It tended to dry in my brush will quick, making the brush hard to clean. The next time I wet my brush thoroughly and also thinned the product with a little water. Brush cleaned much easier. Product brushed on easier. Cheap poly brush is all you need. I tried it on everything from carpet samples, rugs with deteriorated rubber backing, to various weaves of rugs with no backing. It worked on all.
