DimaMat

Installation of Final Finishes

Timber Floors

The DimaMat system is suitable as a substrate for engineered timber boards.

Laminated, engineered timber floors, can be laid as a floating or bonded floor (refer to manufacturer’s recommendations).

Moisture and humidity conditions should always be taken into account when installing timber products.

Primers, sealers and adhesives with lower water content are recommended and applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

It is recommended that the underfloor heating is switched off when installing floor finish.

Carpets

Use a suitable primer when laying self-adhesive carpet tiles and water-permeable floor coverings.

Carpets can be secured with strong double-sided adhesive tape.

Gripper rods can be adhered to the DimaMat. Tacking is not recommended due the ultra-thin nature of DimaMat.

If a carpet is to be bonded over an entire area a peel-off adhesive system is recommended so that the carpet can be removed in once piece in the future.

When laying non-permeable floor coverings, a reactive resin-based adhesive rather than a dispersion-based adhesive is recommended.

DimaMat should cure flat and level enough to accept thin carpets, PVC, marmoleum etc without the requirement for further levelling compounds.

It is recommended that the underfloor heating is switched off when installing the floor finish.

Ceramic tiles and stone floors

Tiles should be installed using a ‘thin-bed’ method. ‘Thick-bed’ methods are not recommended. Should thick bed be required a suitable decoupling system should be employed.

A tile adhesive conforming to BS EN 12004 Class C2S1 should be used when adhering tile and stone to the DimaMat system.

Tiles should be laid with open joints and never with tightly butted joints.

Only grout tiles when tile adhesive has fully hardened.

It is recommended that the underfloor heating is switched off when installing floor finish.
