Transport, storage and acclimatization

The cartons should be transported horizontally and the tiles and the adhesive should be acclimatized at the job site 48 hours prior to installation.
The temperature should be kept in a range between 18ºC and 28ºC (65ºF to 82ºF) and relative humidity from 35% to 65% during storage and installation.

Site inspection

Inspect the tiles in daylight for any visible faults or damage and also check the subfloor and site conditions.

Subfloor preparation

The key to success when installing Hydrocork as Glue Down is to achieve a good bond between the subfloor and Hydrocork. Therefore, proper preparation of the surface is the most important factor in achieving this bond.

Subfloor requirements

Hydrocork as Glue Down can be installed in interior installation sites, on or above grade, on concrete or wooden subfloors and also in almost all domestic areas and in most commercial areas, except in saunas and persistently wet areas. It is also possible to use Hydrocork as Glue Down in other areas like bathrooms or areas where spillages frequently occur since it will not swell when exposed to water.

For Hydrocork as Glue Down the temperature of the subfloor must not exceed 28ºC (82ºF).

Moisture protection

Hydrocork as Glue Down requires sealing against rising damp if there is no basement. Water-repellent concrete, crawl spaces or similar materials are not sufficient to prevent the migration of humidity into the subfloor.
