I have some cheapy B&Q vinyl floor tiles to put in a bathroom (customer supplied), on the pack it says to use a bonding primer?
What does this mean? I have 6mm ply as a base.

i fitted some awhile ago i just used p v a to help it adhere and they are still well down. they were the self adhesive ones. some people heat them up slightly it makes them more pliable and can help with adhesion

Yes they are self adhesive.

Might just use my Ultra tile primer.

I'd make sure the ply is bone dry afterwards BB, although it's outta my depth of experience.

Resilient flooring should only be undertaken by degree level qualified master tradesmen, only joking any one can do it the primer depends on the substrate give f.ball technical a call they will give you all the help you need
