The substrate must comply with VOB Part C, DIN 18 356 as well as with all local technical and national requirements and must be ready for installation. Moisture content of all floors must be measured before installation. Approved substrates: plywood (underlayment grade), OSB (underlayment grade), Kiesel recommended screeds, patching and levelling compounds, radiant heat flooring.
The surface must be sound and clean. Remove dirt, paint, oil, grease, wax and other contamination, which might act as a bond breaker. Grind and prime calcium sulfate screed according to data sheet BEB. If necessary, prime with Okapox GF /and silica sand spread, Okamul PU-V schnell and install within 24 hours. Prime absorbent substrates (cement-screed, calcium sulfate-based screed) with Okamul PV-Universal to reduce fine dust.
Moisture content in concrete sub floors must be below 3/24h/1,000 sq. ft. using the Calcium Chloride Test or below 75% RH using an in-situ probe. When used as moisture barrier up to 14/24h/1,000 sq. ft. using the Calcium Chloride Test or up to 92% RH using an in-situ probe may be achieved and is warranted. Bakit EK neu should be used as a product component together with other Kiesel floor installation system products.
Use appropriate trowel to apply the adhesive onto the substrate. Spread the adhesive with the appropriate notched trowel. Avoid unnecessary adhesive thickness by passing the trowel evenly through the adhesive at a 45 degree angle. Installation should begin immediately; no flash time required. Lay the flooring into the adhesive, correctly position it and press down firmly. Rolling is neither required nor recommended. Check the boards regularly to make certain good adhesive transfer from floor to flooring is accomplished. Apply only as much as adhesive as required and imbed within 40 minutes. Push the covering into the adhesive bed; plane into position and push until tight. Ensure even and thorough transfer of the adhesive. Remove adhesive residue on floor surface immediately with Bakit RT.
