Installing XPO 2 mm AquaStop –

a step-by-step guide

Before installation, please note: Before installation, check the base in accordance with CEN/TS 14472 and ensure that the quality of the base is suitable for proper processing. In general, the base should be clean, level, dry, resistant to tension and compression and should not contain any substances such as plasticisers, solvents or other diffusing substances. It must be ensured that the base is in a state of equilibrium humidity and that the CM value is below 2.0 % (for cement screed) or below 0.5 % (for anhydrite screed and anhydrite flowing screed). The processing instructions of the flooring manufacturer are to be observed as binding specifications.

Cleaning the surface

Cleaning the surface

Step 1
Clean the surface thoroughly with a brush or vacuum cleaner. Remove any adhesive and paint residues completely.

Laying out the first panel

Step 5
Lay the laminate in the same orientation as the underlay. Do not place any load on the underlay. If necessary, place the laminate board under your knees/feet to distribute the load.

Finishing the installation

Step 6
Repeat steps 2 – 5 until the entire floor has been installed. Tape the joints with the Aluminium-Foil Sealing Tape to make them vapour-tight.
