Transport, storage and acclimatization

The cartons should be transported horizontally and the tiles should be acclimatized at the job site 48 hours prior to installation. The temperature should be kept in a range between 18ºC and 28ºC (65ºF to 82ºF) and relative humidity from 35% to 65% during storage and installation.

Site inspection

Inspect the tiles in daylight for any visible faults or damage and also check the subfloor and site conditions.

Subfloor requirements

Wicanders Glue-down floors can be installed in interior installation sites, on or above grade, on concrete or wooden subfloors. The subfloor must be even, flat, dry and variations should not exceed 3mm in 2m (0.12" in 6.6 feet) and the temperature on the subfloor, when using radiant heated subfloor, should not exceed 28ºC (82ºF). Please consult the document “Subfloor preparation” for detailed information

Moisture protection

Subfloors must be permanently dry on concrete subfloors without radiant heat. Consider the maximum humidity less than 75% RH or conduct calcium chloride moisture tests to ensure that moisture emission levels are less than 3lbs/1000ft2/24 hours (USA and Canada), or CM Test: concrete (1,5% heated-2,0% nonheated), anhydrite (0,3% heated-0,5% non-heated).
