5.1 Selection of or development of a carpet adhesive, for direct glue or adhered applications requires knowledge of the adhesive's ability to perform adequately when it is found necessary to correct an installation concern, such as bubbles or wrinkles, by re-rolling or application of dead weight to the affected area without the application or injection of additional adhesive.
