What is perimeter bond vinyl?

A perimeter glue down vinyl is a vinyl flooring specifically designed for that purpose. A perimeter glue down floor is usually floated over an existing floor, and the adhesive is applied around the perimeter of the room, and after installation the new floor shrinks to a tight fit.

Just so, should vinyl flooring be glued down?

Not all vinyl has to be glued to the floor. Heavy duty 'stay flat' vinyl doesn't shrink or lift, so you can lay it without using adhesive. If you're laying cushioned vinyl, you should glue it around the edges and at joins. Thinner, non-cushioned types need to be stuck down all over.

One may also ask, can you staple vinyl flooring? The sheet vinyl is cut to size. Staples from a regular heavy-duty shop staple gun are driven into place every two inches all along the perimeter. Keep the staples as close the edge as possible, but not so close that they might tear out. Be careful: these staples are hard to remove without nicking the flooring.

Regarding this, can you put linoleum down without glue?

Glue can help even these out slightly, so if you're not using glue, ensure that the floor is level and flat before laying the linoleum by filling indentations with putty and sanding high spots. A plywood underlayment is ideal for linoleum, although you can use backer board or other underlayment products.

Can Gorilla Glue be used on vinyl?

No you cannot. Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane glue used on wood, stone, foam, metal, ceramic, glass and other materials according to the company. If this company's other products can be judged by the quality of its original glue, I wouldn't trust them either. There are actual kits sold to patch vinyl air mattresses.
