Glue processing principles to the parquet
In general, the substrate must be level, load-bearing and free of substances which impair the adhesion of the parquet adhesive.
The following points should be checked before laying the parquet:
- Type of substrate: concrete, cement, calcium sulfate screed, quick-drying screeds, etc.
- Flatness of the underground
- Substrate maturity (moisture)
- Joints and joints
- surface finish
- Check for cracks
- Clarify whether (with screed with floor heating) screed was heated correctly and heating is switched off
Type of underground
Mineral substrates such as screed or concrete must be sanded and dedusted. In the case of rapid screeds, attention must be paid to floating the plastic components in the screed. These can have a negative effect on the adhesion of the parquet adhesive.
Primer / moisture barrier
Primers have the advantage that they reduce the absorbency of the substrate and bind any dust residues. In addition, this reduces the consumption of the parquet adhesive.
Lay parquet and glue parquet
If it fits in the room, you should start with the parquet laying on the wall opposite the front door. This avoids point loads during the hardening of the parquet adhesive and larger Dirt. Ideally, the first 3 rows of parquet are prepared by laying the parquet dry and adjusting it to the course of the wall. In this case, if necessary, color shades of individual Mix parquet planks, if necessary recognize and sort out damage of the parquet and to adapt wood type typical grain correctly to the overall picture of the parquet floor.
The adhering parquet surface is marked by means of a chalk line, and after the resumption of the parquet planks can be glued to the parquet. The removal of the parquet adhesive from the container is preferably carried out with a trowel or a spatula. Then the parquet adhesive is spread over the surface with a notched trowel and evenly distributed.
