Forum Title: Linoleum Adhesive
guys we pulled up the Linoleum in the kitchen and want to put down engineered flooring using Bostik Ultra Set Single Step. we scraped everthing up and i've belt sanded what was left. i can't tell if it's leveling compound or the glue they used to put the Linoleum in with. on the last job, we laid right across what was left and were fine. but don't want to take any, does this need to come up even if it wont by scraper or belt sander?? thanks rik

it may just be a stain from the adhesive

Yes, it says remove all sealers and bond breakers. Is this a concrete or wood substrate? If its concrete you can grind it off with a diamond cup wheel. If it's wood, ply or OSB get a scrape away or some heavy grit paper on a buffer. Or you could perform a bond test. But bond tests are only as good as the spot is prepped.
