It is known that linoleum is pretty thick and not very pliable material, so the usual glue will not solve the problem of disconnected joints. To anticipate the spread of the joints, it is necessary to apply a special method of hot or cold welding (welding depends on the type of linoleum).
If your floors powerful commercial linoleum, then give preference to hot welding. But if a mild household surface, then hot welding contraindicated, otherwise the joints will melt, and linoleum is hopelessly flawed. If you decide to linoleum hot welding, then proceed to her only after the coating stuck to the floor. This process requires a special tool, which is heated to 350-400 ° C, and a cord.
The junction of the webs of linoleum it is necessary to cut a groove for a cord. The cord should fill in a special welding gun, the tip of which quickly push in the groove. Cord immediately sealed butt all over the place. Hot top curved seam cut with a knife, and align that it is not performed on the coating surface. After cooling, sand the seam. After these works, the seams and the linoleum will be one.
Cold welding involves bonding the webs of linoleum with a special glue. The glue for such work is produced in two types A and C. As the Adhesive for newly laid linoleum, glue for existing coverage. To seal the joints of linoleum glue And need to connect linoleum cloths and secure with tape. Then you need to cut the tape with a knife, and formed in the slit pour glue. Choose a wide adhesive tape, it is not only good fixed blade, but will protect the rest of the coating. The tape should be removed after 10 minutes and after half an hour, when the glue is completely dry, cover can walk.
In the case of adhesive tape is not needed , the glue is thick and will not spread. Adhesive application technology is the same as in the previous embodiment. The important point in working with such adhesives is to ensure a constant flow of fresh air, this is due to the presence in their composition of volatile solvents.
