It is composed of 8 mm Isorubber resilient layer bonded to V313 chipboard . ISORUBBER itself is a dense, durable low compression material with excellent impact and airborne sound properties. It forms the main acoustic component of six Robust Details. The system is designed to reduce the effects of workmanship error, that most frequently occur in refurbishment work and has a tested acoustic performance compliant with the Approved Document E requirements for refurbishment.

should prime every time. Firstly, priming reduces the floor’s absorbency. When wet smoothing compounds are applied to porous substrates, such as tamped concrete and timber, moisture can pass into the subfloor which in turn expels air. Secondly, priming increases adhesion! Correct priming serves as a bonding aid between the compound and the substrate. Thirdly, correct priming acts as an interface between materials preventing incompatibility or reaction. The use of a barrier primer will prevent this unwanted contact, avoiding a reaction and possible failure. The renowned Ultra Floor range from Instarmac Group includes Prime IT Multi-surface Primer, a moisture tolerant, water based acrylic primer, sealer and bonding aid, suitable for porous and non porous substrates.
