known that linoleum - a rather dense and not very malleable material, so regular glue will not solve the problem of disconnected joints.To provide for the spread of joints, it is necessary to use a special method of hot or cold welding (welding process depends on the type of linoleum).
If your flooring is a powerful commercial linoleum, then give preference to hot welding.And if the soft domestic coverage, the hot welding contraindicated, otherwise the joints melt and linoleum will be ruined.If you choose to connect the hot welding linoleum, then it is necessary to begin only after the coating stuck to the floor.This process requires a special tool, which is heated to 350-400 ° C, and the
At the junction of paintings linoleum need to cut a groove for the cord.The cord should fill in a special welding gun, the tip of which is quickly pressed into the groove.Cord instantly fused butt all over the web.Hot cut the seam on top of the arcuate knife and trim the, that he did not act on the surface of the coating.After cooling, the seam grind.After such work the seams and linoleum are one.
Cold welding, involves bonding linoleum paintings with special glue.Glue for such work is available in two types of A and C. A Clay - for newly laid linoleum adhesive coating for the already exploited.To seal the joints linoleum glue A need to connect fabric linoleum and secure with tape.Then it is necessary to cut the cling film with a knife, and a slit formed to fill the adhesive.Choose a tape, it will not only consolidate the good paintings, but also protect the rest of the coating.Adhesive tape must be removed after 10 minutes, and after half an hour, when the adhesive completely dried out, you can walk on the cover.
In the case of glue C - Scotch tape is not needed, the glue spread thick and not be.Technology of glue is the same as in the previous embodiment.An important factor in dealing with such adhesives, is to ensure a constant flow of fresh air, this is explained by the presence in their composition of volatile solvents.
Tip 2: How should I connect linoleum
modern technologies and materials for repairs are so simple to use and so effective that produce most of the housework easy and pleasant.And if you remember, and the tangible savings that you get by doing all the work yourself, it becomes even more joyful. Linoleum - beautiful practical material for flooring that combines many good characteristics.You can put it on a large area, edge quality cook it.
- - linoleum;
- - knife;
- - masking tape;
- - glue for PVC.
House you will be working by the "cold fusion" that is, using a special adhesive.You do not need sophisticated equipment and appliances.Adhesive compounds of PVC composition close to the composition of the linoleum, in contact with which it slightly dissolves and melts the edge.
working surface clean of dust and debris.Vacuum and wipe clean with a dry cloth.With adhesive work gloves since its components is quite aggressive.After work, be sure to ventilate the room.
edges of the material needed to align as much as possible, this can only be achieved by cutting two pieces of linoleum together.Pick picture and lay overlapping coverage.With a sharp knife for cutting linoleum cut the two layers at once.To the line was flat, put a straight board, the length of a ruler or a tailor's meter.
Linoleum stick to the floor so that he did not move and will not warp.Protect the edge of the fabric masking tape, it is especially important for high-gloss surfaces.Glue two strips if linoleum soft, and one, if the coating is tough enough.In the second case, just cut the scotch sharp thin blade.
Take special glue for PVC and spend spout tube seam.The tool will penetrate inside, come into contact with components of linoleum and cures.Adhesive can be applied alternately on the two pieces of material, and then dock.Proceed as you prefer.
In any case, the excess glue, acting on the surface of an adhesive tape, remove immediately.The welding process is still going on, and with the surplus can be removed part of participating in the work.When the vehicle is dry, cut it will be much easier.
cold welding can also be used if you have damaged linoleum.Adhesive Lead cut so that there will be no traces.
Adhesive for welding of PVC is of two types: A and C. Type A is used to connect the new linoleum, type C perfectly embeds the seams of the old material, which is a little dispersed and deformed.
C-glue is much thicker in consistency, as the old seal is sometimes a gap of a few millimeters.If you are dealing with exactly this problem, fill the gap C-glue.A glue will melt and cook the pieces of the new linoleum.
