RENOPLAN SYSTEM 10

How can new floor coverings safely be installed over old, damp or contaminated surfaces? With UZIN RR 185.

Substrates that have, for example, high residual moisture content or contamination from oil and grease usually require laborious and expensive surface preparation. This work can be avoided by using the reinforcement underlay UZIN RR 185. The underlay has slip-resistant foam studs on the underside that separate the top covering from the substrate. Between the underlay and the substrate, there is a thin air-layer and traffic over it creates a pump-effect so that moisture can escape at the edges. High residual moisture no longer has a damaging effect on the flooring construction. As the reinforcement underlay is loose-laid, the flooring can be easily removed, leaving no residue, at a later date.

<p>Lay out the reinforcement underlay parallel
with the proposed direction of the covering
and roughly cut in. Off set the side-seams in
the underlay from those in the top covering
by at least 25 cm.</p>

<p>Pull back the sheet half way and using
a notched trowel suitable for the backing
structure of the covering, spread a event
coat of UZIN dispersion adhesive.</p>

<p>Place the floor covering into the adhesive
bed and rub down well with a cork rubbing
board. Recommendation for ventilation of
the substrate: fit ventilated skirtings onto
the top covering. Textile, PVC and cushioned
vinyl coverings can be installed. The limit
for point-loading is 3 N/mm².</p>
