tool for laying linoleum
Video presented above, tells the tool that professionals use when laying various types of commercial linoleum on the floor: you can not only find out which tool is, but also to see how theyuse.For laying linoleum need:
- knife (usually sharp end or a special flooring);
- ruler, tape measure, square, label marking, scissors;
- spatulas (normal and gear);
- hot welding equipment;
- Rink for linoleum.
consumables (glue, nails, etc.) and the coating are selected based on specific tasks.
Technology laying linoleum
Always styling commercial linoleum is more suitable than, say, a semi-commercial ;sufficient reason for this is, at least, the lifetime of such a linoleum - 10 years (especially in the bath and other places where the coating has a large resistance value).Although the styling for different types of floors - on the concrete, on a wooden floor on fiberboard, chipboard on for OSB, a substrate of another kind - has its own characteristics, the general order of installation are identical.However, if, for example, stacking antistatic linoleum, the procedure may be supplemented by stacking copper strips one along each strip of material to be laid.In addition, the laying of anti-static linoleum imposes additional requirements for compliance with the electrical conductivity of the floor space and certain SNiP'am.
measure is necessary to make the premises: need the large size of a particular room, or better yet create a drawing, which celebrate all the right sizes.
linoleum Laying without glue is the fastest and in some cases (when the multi-layered linoleum, for example) it is appropriate to cheaper;but in this case, and in all other lists must be deployed and give them time to finish.In places where the linoleum is not able to kill himself, it should be forced to use this heavy objects.
When the concrete floor to increase the adhesive force between the floor and linoleum, apply primer on it.While laying on the wooden floor, these rules are not necessary, but for the safety of the floor it may be necessary.
incision purchased linoleum is made only when it is already clear picture of the direction of stacking pattern linoleum.Keep in mind when laying linoleum is made without the use of glue, fit the strip overlap and linoleum on thresholds must be fixed later.Area where the linoleum laid without glue, must not exceed 12 meters.
on the finished surface of the adhesive is applied and evenly distribute it with a spatula.Methods for applying the adhesive and endurance before direct contact is given in the instructions to him.In this application to the OSB plate or concrete floor can produce a variety of settings for the adhesive.An alternative is the use of the adhesive double-sided tape, but in this case the right, that is a completely flat floor and the filigree work of the master are the keys to success.
finishing work on laying the welding seams of linoleum, which can be both hot and cold.Traditionally, hot welding is considered to be more reliable, and it is used where the mechanical load on the commercial linoleum will be relatively high.With homogeneous kinds of linoleum can be used cold welding.
laying linoleum on different surfaces
consider options for laying linoleum on different types of surfaces:
laying linoleum on the wooden floor
is considered one of the easiest optionsstyling and often carried out without laying glue, if the floor is enough flat.An essential condition is that the serviceability of sex.If the floor is old, and there are cracks and holes, it is relatively easy to "fix", covering, for example, chipboard or thick plywood.
laying linoleum on the concrete floor
If the new floor, the problems with the laying of heterogeneous linoleum should not be.The only thing that may need priming the concrete surface to remove dust and ensure uniform gluing of linoleum.However, when using multi-layer linoleum, it is possible to do without the use of glue.
laying linoleum on the old linoleum
quite practical option if the old linoleum was preserved well.Too often over the old linoleum laid another that is much thicker.In this case, almost no additional work is required.
laying linoleum on plywood
In most cases, an additional coating plywood, that quickly and reliably align any floor, the base of which is firmly.Available laying linoleum as glue and without it (depending on the density of linoleum coverings and conditions of use).
