Can I glue vinyl to vinyl?

Yes – provided the existing flooring is well-adhered to the subfloor and is clean and free from dirt and grease.
Two possible solutions –
1. Use Bostiks Best as an ‘impact adhesive’. Allow the adhesive film to dry and then lay the vinyl rolling well. Remember the floorcovering must be positioned correctly from the beginning and cannot be repositioned.
2. Use either Extra-Lay or Duo-Lay tape to adhere the floorcovering to the subfloor.
