Parquet floors stand for warmth and comfort. To preserve their beauty and elegance over a long time, high-quality adhesives are used in manufacturing and during installation. If underfloor heating is in place, using the right adhesive in the parquetry plays a key role for good long-term results.
We can help you find the right adhesive for your parquetry and also provide a number of excellent services.
The production of two-layer parquet is usually carried out in automated production processes. The base layer of the parquet element fulfills purely structural purposes and can consist of solid strips or wood-based panels. The visible layer glued on top is then made of particularly high-quality wood. In addition to other types of adhesives, PUR hotmelt adhesives, which are applied to the top and bottom layers in bead form, are used in particular for excellent and long-lasting bonding results. Due to the bead shape, PUR hotmelts are able to compensate for tolerances.
For the production of 2-layer parquet, we offer our reactive PUR hotmelts in the 705 and 702 product series. They offer the following benefits:
inline processing and gluing possible; i.e. the pressing times are only a few seconds long
very high temperature and moisture resistance due to the chemical crosslinking process
flexible glue joint even after crosslinking (no creaking under load strains, etc.)
high aging resistance
In three-layer parquet board manufacturing, three material layers are glued together to form a composite. However, since essentially flat materials are bonded together, adhesives should preferably be applied as a closed film. PVAc dispersions or EPI systems are frequently used. However, modern system concepts rely on PUR hotmelts, which can significantly reduce throughput times.
In floating installation, the parquet floor is not glued to the subfloor, but laid loosely on the subfloor. The necessary stability is provided by the tongue and groove joints in the parquet elements, which in turn may be glued together.
For a long-lasting and visually sophisticated installation of floating tongue and groove parquet, we offer a special adhesive. KLEIBERIT 351.0 fulfills the stress group D3 according to DIN EN 204, is colorless and results in a hard-elastic glue line. The product has been popular with craftsmen and installers for decades.
Full-surface bonding of parquet flooring
When laying parquet flooring over the entire surface, it is important to work cleanly and use the right adhesive. Several factors determine the choice of the right parquet adhesive. In general, a distinction is made between absorbent and non-absorbent subfloors. A true all-rounder is a parquet adhesives based on STP - KLEIBERIT 583.5. This adheres to almost all materials without pre-treatment and provide excellent results. It is easy to process and has impact sound absorbing properties. Furthermore, it is considered very low-emission according to GEV Emicode and has the EC 1 Plus seal of approval as well as the emission class A+ according to French VOC regulations.
Full-surface bonding on mineral surfaces
Screed is considered an absorbent subfloor. For top results, the synthetic resin dispersion KLEIBERIT 350.0 should be used. KLEIBERIT 350.0 can be used pure for bonding small and mosaic parquet. In some cases, sealing the screed provides even better results. For this purpose, the 1C PUR coating product KLEIBERIT 555.3 should be used. It is even easier with our STP adhesive KLEIBERIT 583.5. Pre-coating is usually not necessary with these products.
Stone and ceramics are either absorbent or non-absorbent, depending on their nature. With the right parquet adhesives, you can bond both types without any problems. Our parquet adhesive based on STP - KLEIBERIT 583.5 - ensures the best results here – let our experts advise you, and take a look at our product table.
Full-surface bonding on wood
In some cases, the parquet is also bonded to wood-based panels, such as OSB or chipboard, over the entire surface. For this purpose, we offer PUR systems as well as low-emission STP systems. The choice of adhesive depends on the individual circumstances, requirements and personal preferences. Contact us for advice and find the right product for your needs.
