FIXING TILES ON FLOORS WITH CONCEALED HEATING (HOT WATER SYSTEMS)

 
ADVICES PREPARATION APPLICATION FINISHING

How to deal with mechanical stresses and diffusion of heat that occurs in the bond line of this type of flooring ?

 

Type of heating :

*Hot water systems that conform to the NF DTU 65.14 specification.

*Floors with in-built hot and cold water pipe that conform to the CPT specification 3164.

Recommendations:

If there is any micro-fissuring in the concrete substrate : use CERMIFACE bond breaking system.

Jointing: we recommend using CERMIJOINT SOUPLE. or CERMIJOINT TX admixed with CERMILATEX


SUITABLE SUBSTRATES
Substrates should conform to the CPT n° 3267 Specification *
- Slabs on an earth platform
- Flooring
- Slabs or screeds

CONTROLS BEFORE APPLICATION
- Drying of embedding concrete: minimum 14 days.
- Bring the system progressively up to its operating temperature over ± 10 days, 14 days after applying the concrete (please refer to the DTU Specification), in order to check its correct operation and the stability of the slab flooring.
- Check that the concrete is in good condition. 
- Switch off the heating at least 2 days before laying the tiling.


Application of coverings

- CERMIFIX HP: please refer to the technical data sheet for suitable formats.

- Use a U9 or E10 notched trawel, depending on the format. Please refer to the technical data sheet.

CONTROL JOINT:

- expansion joints : as for embedded concrete

- Peripheral joints: minimum 5mm.

 

- Wait at least 24 hours after fixing the tiles before doing the jointing with CERMIJOINT COLOR, CERMIJOINT TX.

However, we recommend using CERMIJOINT SOUPLE or CERMIJOINT TX admixed with CERMILATEX.

 

- Renovation: see advice sheet n°41 and 42. - Water proofing: use CERMITANChE and CERMIPROOF.


Wait at least 24 hours after fixing the tiles before doing the jointing.                      

SWITCHING ON THE HEATING

Wait at least 2 days after jointing before switching on the heating
