Questions about handling KORTE mouldings

How are KORTE Concave Mouldings glued?

We recommend gluing the mouldings to the floor to form a shear-resistant joint using 2- component epoxy resin adhesive and filling the joint with the wall with 1-component polyurethane adhesive, ensuring that a gap is formed in accordance with DIN 18540, where applicable.

How are KORTE Drip Strips glued?

We recommend gluing the mouldings with 1-component polyurethane adhesive. The layer of adhesive should be no more than 1 mm thick and cover the whole area to be glued. (Allow for a hardening time of 24 hours per mm.)
The mouldings must be glued with 2-component epoxy resin adhesive on fresh concrete and in areas exposed to salt spray.
