As discreetly glue joints linoleum
The variety of flooring allowschoose exactly the material that best suits the price, quality and appearance. Even the most demanding customer will be satisfied: and he laminate of different classes, and linoleum and parquet, and tiles. You can enumerate a long time, but it is worth noting that the good old linoleum does not give up its position and is widely loved by consumers. It is easy to operate, can simulate the desired and more expensive coverage. It requires attention the fact that in its styling is often raises the question of how glue linoleumFor example, in the junction.

When it is necessary bonding linoleum?
Foreign manufacturers have long offeredpopulation this floor having a width of 4 meters. It is clear that for most typical Russian apartments that would be enough to put linoleum completely without seams. In some cases, even have to remove the excess.
As for the domestic producers, thetheir products often has a width of 1.5 m. Of course, for small rooms it is enough, but what to do, for example, a living? Here in this case, and it is assumed laying linoleum strips that are glued together.
Obviously, a conventional adhesive is not suitable for these purposes. That is why today, developed technology of hot and cold welding of the floor covering.
Hot welding linoleum
It is necessary to immediately make a reservation, that the glue jointlinoleum by hot welding is inappropriate in a domestic environment. The fact that this process firstly involves the use of special welding gun, second, occurs at a temperature in the 4000? C.
None linoleum intended for domesticuse, will not sustain such a temperature. Not only did he not stick together, and melted. This method is ideal for bonding joints of commercial linoleum, which has a higher degree of strength and durability. Thus, hot welding bonding can be used for joints of floor material, laid in any supermarket.
Cool way to connect
Cold welding is a compoundlinoleum strips in places of their interface with the help of specially designed for this purpose glue. This chemical bonding has a number of advantages. It can be performed independently, ie without the involvement of professionals and specialized equipment. Furthermore, it does not require much cost and time. The result is high quality glued strips of flooring - the seam is noticeable only with careful study of the linoleum.
Today decided to allocate cold weldinglinoleum in a residential type A and C. The main difference is that technologies that welding type A occurs, if it is necessary to glue the joints linoleum recently acquired. Cold welding type C is ideal for the connection of the old floor cloths.
Thus, the adhesive composition when welding stackingthe first material is sufficiently fluid. This further reduces the visibility of the resulting weld. In carrying out the repair has operated previously used welding linoleum, characterized by a thick consistency. This is due to the fact that the old coating over an extended period of time to endure the high loads and cracks therein can be significant. Finished seams can reach 4 mm in width. Cold welding, wherein a large density allows not only to make the seam invisible, but actually form in its place the new linoleum.
The technology of cold welding
Firstly, you will need gloves, without which it is not recommended to work with an adhesive composition for the job gluing joints linoleum.
Secondly, you need to carefully prepare the floor for welding. For this purpose it is necessary in the future site of the seam to remove any moisture with a dry cloth and dust - cleaner.
Then, one-sided glued jointswide adhesive tape. Before filling the seam adhesive composition of the adhesive tape at the joint neatly prorezaetsya.Imenno this slot will be filled with a special glue that is squeezed through a narrow nozzle at the end of the tube.
After completing the welding seam must be coldwait for 10-20 minutes, after which you can gently remove the adhesive tape. About 30-40 minutes later on this floor can not only walk, but run. If you suddenly find droplets of welding on a clean surface floor covering, they should not be spread. It is necessary to wait for them to dry, and then remove with a sharp knife.
This sequence is suitable for laying new linoleum. If glued old cloth cover, then use adhesive tape is no longer necessary, because linoleum is already "lie down."
It is worth paying attention to two points:
- The shorter the seam, so it is stronger.
- Splicing can be carried along or across. It all depends on how the light falls on site.
Thus, to glue the linoleum is simple. It is only necessary to carefully consider this issue and to choose a suitable for your specific flooring adhesive composition.
