Variety flooring allows you to select exactly the material that best suits the price, quality and appearance.Even the most demanding customer will be satisfied: and he was different class laminate and linoleum and parquet, and tiles.List can be long, but it is worth noting that the good old linoleum is not losing its position and is widely loved by consumers.It is convenient to use, and can simulate the desired coating is more expensive.Attention requires that when installing often the question arises as linoleum glue, for example in the joints.
When necessary bonding linoleum?↑
Foreign manufacturers have long offered to the population, this floor having a width of 4 meters.It is clear that for most typical Russian apartments that would be enough to put linoleum even without seams.In some cases, even have to remove the excess.
As for domestic manufacturers, their products often has a width of 1.5 m. Of course, for small rooms that is enough, but what to do, for example, the living room?Here in this case, and it is assumed laying linoleum strips that are glued together.
obvious that the usual glue is not suitable for this purpose.That is why today, developed technology of hot and cold welding of the floor covering.
hot welding linoleum ↑
worth outset that glue joint by hot welding of linoleum in a residential area is inappropriate.The fact that this process firstly involves the use of special welding gun, second, occurs at a temperature of 4 000˚C.
None of linoleum intended for domestic use, not withstand such a temperature.He not only did not stick together but will melt.This method is ideal for bonding joints of commercial linoleum, having a higher degree of strength and durability.Thus, hot welding bonding can be applied at the joints of floor material, laid in any supermarket.

Cold welding is a combination of strips of linoleum in the places of their interface with the help of specially designed adhesive.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 a high quality glued strips of flooring - the seam visible only with careful study of linoleum.
today decided to allocate cold welding of linoleum in a residential type A and C. The main difference between the technologies is that Type A welding takes place, if you want to glue the joints linoleum recently acquired.Cold welding of type C is ideal for connecting webs of the old flooring.
Thus, the adhesive composition of the welding material to be placed for the first time is quite liquid.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 during 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 higher density allows not only to make the seam invisible, but actually to form in its place the new linoleum.
cold welding technology ↑
Firstly, to carry out work on the bonding joints linoleum need gloves, without which work with the adhesive composition is not recommended.
Secondly, you need to carefully prepare the floor for welding.For this purpose it is necessary to place the future of the joint to remove any moisture with a dry cloth and dust - cleaner.
then glued joints on a single-sided adhesive tape.Before filling the seam adhesive composition of the adhesive tape at the junction gently 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 filling seam cold welding is necessary to wait 10-20 minutes, after which you can gently remove sticky 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 coverings, they should not be smeared.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."
should pay 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 in the room.

Thus, linoleum glue is easy.It should be a careful approach to this issue and choose a suitable for your specific flooring adhesive composition.
