HOW TO USE IT:
Regupol Sonus Underlayment and the flooring material must acclimatize, in their sealed packaging, in the room where they are installed for at least 48 hours, at temperature of at least 65ºF. Before starting installation make sure the sub floor is permanently dry and free of dirt, dust, grease and other foreign matter. Concrete must be free of efflorescence and not subject to hydrostatic pressure. Sub floor moisture percentages should not exceed the flooring manufacturers or Regupol’s recommendations of 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet over 24 hours or RH at 85%.
Wood Floor Construction: Sub floor should be properly leveled, structurally sound and clean. Plywood sub flooring should be of a good grade. Variations in floor level over 1/8” within 3 feet span should be leveled before installing underlayment. Any nails or other protrusions should be pounded flat or removed. Sub floor should have L360 for deflection.
Concrete Slab: Inspect concrete sub floor for any open cracks and fill with a high grade patch. Remove any excess concrete lumps or residue that may interfere with the installation of Regupol Sonus. The concrete slab should be permanently dry. A good quality concrete waterproof sealer may be required if moisture in slab is too high.
Installation of Tile: Regupol Sonus underlayment needs to be adhered to the sub floor. Acceptable bond-coat adhesives: Regupol TRUESET use 1/16” x 1/16” x 1/16” square– notched trowel (note a larger trowel size may be required based upon site condtiions). Periodically check and see that you are getting 100% transfer of adhesive. Start in a corner and roll out Regupol Sonus installing it flush to the walls. Roll up the roll halfway and apply adhesive on exposed area, roll back over adhesive flat trowel any air pockets, continue with other side the same way. Continue rolling out and gluing down Regupol Sonus in the same manner until the entire area is covered. Make sure the edges are tightly butted together, both side by side & end by end. Use a 50—100 lb roller to fully bond the Sonus to sub floor. Install perimeter isolation strips vertically on walls or leave a 3/16” gap around all perimeter walls (this gap can be filled with a latex caulk but NOT grout). After 8 hours or when adhesive is fully cured install tile/ stone flooring using a latex modified thin set (we recommend Laticrete 254). The thin set must be burned or keyed into the Sonus to insure proper bond. Grout and trim isolation material flush with floor, hold trim board 1/16” off floor to avoid flanking paths.
Installation of Hardwood: 1. Glue Down Hardwood - Regupol Sonus underlayment needs to be adhered to the subfloor. Recommended adhesive: Regupol TruBond. Use 1/8" x 1/8" x 1/8" sq.– notched trowel (check for 100% transfer of adhesive and adjust to a larger trowel size if conditions require it). Install Sonus rubber in opposite direction to the hardwood floor. Start in a corner and roll out Sonus rubber installing it flush to the walls. Roll up the roll halfway and apply adhesive on exposed area, roll back over adhesive flat trowel any air pockets, continue with other side the same way. Continue rolling out and gluing down Sonus in the same manner until the entire area is covered. Make sure the edges are tightly butted together, both side by side & end by end. Use a 50—100lb. roller to fully bond the Sonus to sub floor. After 8 hours or when adhesive is cured install engineered hardwood flooring using Regupol WoodBond Urethane adhesive or recommended and approved adhesive (contact Regupol for list) and follow manufactures written instructions. Install baseboard slightly off floor to avoid flanking path. 2. Floated Hardwood Installation - Install Sonus rubber in opposite direction to the hardwood floor. Start in a corner and roll out Sonus installing it flush to the walls. Continue the next row in the same manner until the whole room is covered. You can tape the seams but it is not necessary. Install the floated engineered hardwood per manufactures written instructions. Install baseboard slightly off floor to avoid flanking path.
