(See figure 1.) • Very absorbent surfaces eg; untreated concrete, non-flooring grade chipboard or old floor boards may require the application of a suitable primer.

Application of Profloor Acoustic Mat • Measure and cut Profloor Acoustic Mat to the required size.
Note: The Profloor Acoustic Mat is to be measured and cut so that approximately 25mm is returned up around the skirtings. (See figure 2.) If sand/cement screed is being applied over Profloor Acoustic Mat the return should be to the depth of the screed. • Roll up cut length with foam side facing out. • Apply Probond AM with a suitably notched trowel 2mm x 6mm, or similar tool, to the prepared floor surface to cover an area that can be covered whilst the adhesive remain receptive. • Apply the Profloor Acoustic Mat foam side to the wet adhesive and smooth out. (See figure 3.) • Apply Probond AM to remainder of floor area to be covered by cut piece and cover with remainder of Profloor Acoustic Mat and smooth out. Press firmly over the entire area, repeat after 30 minutes. • Subsequent pieces of Profloor Acoustic Mat are butt jointed. (See figure 4.) • Continue to lay Profloor Acoustic Mat until complete floor area is covered. • Where possible Profloor Acoustic Mat should be left to dry for 24-36 hours. • Trim surplus Profloor Acoustic Mat from around skirtings. • Cover complete area with final floor covering eg; Vinyl+ (sheet or tiles), carpet or carpet tiles, flooring grade ceramic* or quarry tiles*. (See figure 5.) * Check with distributors before using ceramic or quarry tiles over Profloor Acoustic Mat. + Check with A. Proctor Tech Desk for specific advice and recommendations where Vinyl or Linoleum are to be used.
