EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET

EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET is a relatively fast moisture-curing hybrid elastomeric sealant.
It can be used for the laying of all types of parquets.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET is a flexible adhesive which meets requirements of NF EN 14293 standard.
Its viscosity, its softness and its adhesion allow to correct floor defects, avoid parquet floor creaking and transmission of impact noises.
Extrusion is easy, even at low temperature.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET has a very good resistance to wet or hot environment.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET contains neither solvents nor silicones nor isocyanates.

APPLICATION AREAS

EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET allows high performance bonding for high traffic areas, sport floors, school and public buildings.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET adheres very well on all species of wood flooring, paving woodblocks, varnished parquet flooring, plywood parquet flooring, engineered flooring and on all types of substrates : concrete slabs and screeds, ceramic tiles, plastic slabs, metal, wood, chip boards.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET is suitable for bonding of floor battens on the substrate and of parquet on floor battens, of wood steps on concrete stairs.
EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET also allows bonding of threshold bars and skirtings (wood, aluminium, inox). For PVC tresholds, it is necessary to perform preliminary tests.

MANUAL

Substrate preparation :
The substrates must be clean, dry, free of dust and grease.
Paving or flooring should not in any way be likely to expose parquet to rising or seepage of moisture.
Do not work at temperatures below 15 °C or when the relative humidity exceeds 65 %.
If necessary, heat and ventilate the room.
The surface should be even (maximum tolerance : 5 mm under a 2 m ruler).
The humidity of the parquet flooring should be between 7 and 11 %.
Substrate humidity level: < 3 % (< 0.5 % for anhydrite screeds).
On anhydrite screeds, it is necessary to rub down beforehand.
For difficult substrates, contact us. Apply primer EMFIPRIM PU MONO or EMFIPRIM EPOXY with a roller before laying parquet or before levelling with self-levelling P3 compound.

Application :
Apply EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET with a caulking gun in beads or strips onto the subfloor or the parquet.
The beads of sealant have to be applied perpendicularly to the parquet lathes and spaced approx. 10 cm apart. Do not adjoin the lathes and respect a gap of 10 to 20 mm all along the walls.
This product should be used within 24 hours of opening the sausage protection ; otherwise, the sealant could harden inside. Do not apply at a temperature under 15 °C or if parquet humidity is above 11 %.
Parquet laying with EMFIMASTIC PS PARQUET is not possible on bituminous substrates.

Cleaning :
Tools can be cleaned with EMFICLEAN AL cloth, EMFINET 683, methylethylketone or acetone before the sealant has completely cured. After curing, mechanical cleaning is required.
