How can luxury vinyl floor tiles be installed quickly onto damp and contaminated substrates?

With UZIN RR 185 and Sigan Elements Plus.

Substrates with high residual moisture or contamination from oil and grease usually require elaborate and expensive substrate preparation. This work can be bypassed by using the reinforcement underlay UZIN RR 185. Combined with Sigan Elements Plus creates an ideal system for luxury vinyl floor tiles.  

The metal-reinforced special adhesive system of Sigan® Elements Plus can counteract massive plasticiser migration and thus guarantees dimension stable installations. New floor coverings can be installed  easily without causing dirt, dust or noise. It is therefore ideal for use in retail environments because it causes little disruption. Sigan Elements Plus also leaves no residues when the floor covering is later refurbished.

Step by step guide:

Sigan Elements Plus in combination with UZIN RR 185 is a unique and innovative system for the perfect installation of luxury floor coverings onto damp or soiled substrates.
