    Default Rubber floor mats

    Replacing the rubber floor mats in ground effects (running boards). What type of adhesive is recommended?

    Welcome to the Gang from Western Colorado.

    I would try to get an answer from the manufacturer, but, I used this to put rubber step treads on my steps ... lasted clean through a winter ... even in the snow.

    CSC uses clear silicone to mount the rubber mats and it holds well and if they ever need to be replaced you wont have to use a grinder to get them off. Any good adhesive will hold rubber mats on, but some are near impossible to get off.

    I have tried reattaching them and not been successful. I have used 3M 77 adhesive which was recommended and worked ok. The problem comes in that you have to clean the surfaces (both the mat and the floorboard mounting spot) really well for it to work. (The floorboards can be cleaned spotless but the mats are next to impossible to clean properly.) And even then, it never really stayed attached around the edges and it picked up all kinds of dirt and small pebbles.

    It is also really messy and hard to keep in only the spots it needs to be. Then if you ever have to remove the floorboards for maintenance, the mats have to come off to access the top of the screws and you have to start all over reattaching the mats. Maybe silicone would work just fine. I would rather have some kind of velcro attachment so they could be easily removed and then reattached. Mine are currently off as I consider options...

    Last year I put new tread down and I couldn’t get the 3M to stick. So I used silicone and used a notched plastic trowel like the one used to apply thinset. (disposable) Bought at one of the lumber yards worked fine for me.
