What does the manufacturer say about this?

Please complete your profile and do an intro BTW.

Too broad of a question. May want to consult your manufacturor like has been said.

I can tell you I do on average a couple of jobs a week with three different brands and dont have any issues.

Thats over new subfloor, skimmed vinyl, concrete, on stairs,whatever. Each brand is a little different and wants you to apply the adhesive in different ways . I found a little bit of adhesive primer , no matter what the substrate ,helps.

I dont use a paint roller anymore either. If the brand I am using calls for one to apply adhesive , I use a flat trowel or a really worn down VCT notch.

Plenty of air time and roll, roll , roll.

Some say to install in wet adhesive, some say dry. some say tape under the seams, some don't. Need to know what vinyl it is.

Vynl Flex Floor Concerens

I also say consult with the manufacturer. Ask for manufacturers direction on no glue for on the grade ,wood subfloor or a floating floor system that addresses your concerns with bubbling and movement.

If they ( the maker of the vinyl) do have a recommended adhesive, please use the adhesive manufacturer mastic and the same manufacturer floor primer.
