Installing a hardwood floor is easier, simpler and faster with Elastilon. Elastilon is a hardwood floor adhesive system which eliminates having to use other flooring adhesives, nailing guns, or spreaders. Instead, Elastilon hardwood flooring installation systems are more flexible and allow you to install flooring on just about any type of existing surface.
Elastilon was invented over 20 years ago by Fred van Bers of Osbe Parket Bv in the Netherlands. His innovative new product earned him international respect and success. Today, Elastilon is sold in numerous countries around the world. Elastilon helps both do-it-yourself people and contractors complete projects quicker and in a fraction of the time normally required to install hardwood flooring.
Elastilon is a roll out hardwood flooring installation system. The foam material has been coated with an adhesive for flooring. It is designed to work with all types of hardwood and laminate flooring products. There are even specialized Elastilon products on the market today that may be used over cork, concrete, carpeting, vinyl, and ceramic tile. The installation process involves three basic steps:
1.Prepare the Room: Remove furniture and wall molding. Next, sweep, mop, or vacuum the floor.
2.Roll out Elastilon: Once the room is prepped, roll out sheets of Elastilon over the existing floor covering.
3.Install the Hardwood Flooring:Place the flooring over the Elastilon working in small sections. Now, pull back the protective sheet on the Elastilon to expose the adhesive for wood flooring and press the flooring down.
There are slight variations depending on the existing floor covering and surface. For instance, if you are installing Elastilon over a concrete floor, it is recommended to use a 6 mil vapor barrier over all concrete surfaces and apply this first, before rolling out and using Elastilon.
No matter the type of project, there is an Elastilon product available to fit your needs. Elastilon Lock is perfect for installing hardwood flooring on stairs or risers. Elastilon Removable allows for multiple installations in situations where you want to put down and take up the flooring many times, like putting down temporary hardwood flooring for your tradeshow display.
