ECO PRE-INSTALLATION CHECKLIST:

A successful installation requires proper preparation of the sub floor. Read and understand all applicable guidelines and technical data sheets before beginning installation.

Follow industry standards and flooring manufacturer’s recommendations for subfloor moisture content, design, layout and application of flooring materials.

All slab constructions must meet the specific BCA requirements for the floor covering to be installed. Sub Floor Examination prior to starting, the subfloor must be checked according to ATFA and BCA installation guidelines. It must be flat, dry, clean, free of divots, loose debris, structurally sound as well as pressure and tension resistant.

When used in conjunction with a 6mm notched trowel a floor moisture barrier is created. Sub Floor Preparation is critical cracks and dips must be filled with suitable fillers unless they are expansion joints, all humps or high points should ground down.

Avoid excessive overuse of ECO Step adhesive thickness by pushing the trowel evenly through the wood floor adhesive at the correct angle of 45 degrees.

Installation should begin immediately laying flooring by dropping the board and meeting the tongue and groove on 45-degree angle directly over the line of the previous board to avoid pushing adhesive between the two boards and creating possible gapping in the flooring.

Adjust the board correctly into position and press down firmly. Do Not Roll ECO Step Adhesive as a method of application. Be sure to check the boards regularly to ensure good contact transfer from Subfloor to flooring. Any bowed or springboards should be weighted down until ECO Step adhesive sets.

Do not install solid timber below grade. Do not use on concrete with curing agents or sealers. Do not install wood flooring with a moisture content of above 14%. Do not use adhesive as a self-levelling compound.

This adhesive will not prevent moisture-related damages to timber flooring caused by flooding, busted pipes etc., or where moisture conditions are in excess of limitations outlined in the Sub Floor Examination. This adhesive is mold and mildew resistant and waterproof when fully cured and will not dissolve if it gets wet.

However, it will not prevent moisture-related damages to timber flooring unless it is used as a moisture barrier within the limitations set forth in the technical data sheet.
