Substrate Requirements

Concrete substrates must be installed well and in accordance with the screeders / product guidelines. It is also required that the substrates be flat, dry and level and any underfloor heating systems installed are fully commission before our installation. The compressive strength on the concrete substrate should be minimum 25- 30 N/mm2, flexural/tensile strength 1.2 N/mm2, with moisture content at time of resin installation not greater than 4%.

Timber substrates normally one layer of 18 mm tongue & groove moisture resistant chipboard or marine plywood cross laid over any existing floor boards. It is required that that the boards are counter sunk and screwed securely at 100 mm centres throughout each board.

This would be followed by the application of 6mm cement boards (glued and screwed) to ensure the surface is rigid and movement free.

Lastly installation the screw heads should be filled in accordance with the Resin Floor Co guidelines along with any joint gaps in the boards.
