You should use the adhesive that is specified by the manufacturer of the flooring.  Failure to do so will often void the warranty.

Hey Flea1978,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

In short, no you cannot use AcrylPro, as this is used an adhesive for tile, not vinyl sheet flooring (aka linoleum). 

What you will need is to use a rated adhesive, which your local Home Depot does sell in stock, as well as the proper notched trowel to get the job done.

Look for a Vinyl Sheet Goods Adhesive sold by Roberts, unless the manufacturer of your new floor states otherwise. However, this adhesive works well for linoleum, and is easy to apply.

Best of all, this adhesive covers way more square feet per gallon than the AcrylPro, and it won't fail. 

Just always use the right materials for the job, and you'll thank yourself in the short and long run.
