Can be laid without the use of adhesives, fixing skirting around the perimeter only. Disadvantages. Carpeting on the basis of foam placed on the entire surface of the floor from baseboard to baseboard, because Rubber has a tendency to stick to the floor surface, and therefore the probability of moving coating without damaging the bases is very small. One word – carpet with this type of foundation is laid one time. Can not be laid on parquet floor, if not expected restoration of the floor surface, because after removal of the coating can remain * * whitish spots. Cause occurrence of these spots is the moisture that falls to the floor as a result of wet cleaning, and not always evaporating, leading to peeling clearcoat. 5-7 years after the installation of carpeting in the foam-based process begins Drying of latex – and rubber starts to crumble. The consequence is the emergence of indentation * tracks * on the surface.
It should be noted that the design life of coatings according to the manufacturers is 5-7 years, but these Data for Europe. In our country, covering exploited, as a rule, until the abrasion. It must be remembered that this type of foundation is very easily damaged during shipment and transportation, so the cuts of coverage must be very carefully packed. With 90 years of popularity-based coatings on foamed in Europe began to decline due to environmental considerations. Currently, such a substrate in coatings for home use successfully replaces artificial felt, and in contract (office) styles – carpet tiles (for pvc or bitumen-based) or a carpet on a textile backing.
