cork it



Step 1: Spread Cork it primer over the floor area, ensuring proper ventilation. If the project is extensive, you can complete this step in stages.

Step 2: Allow the primer to settle for 1 hour, then apply the Flat Tack adhesive. Wait for it to become tacky or dry.

Step 3: Once the adhesive has dried, you’re ready to lay the tiles. Begin at your chosen point and follow your desired pattern for the best visual result. Ensure the tiles fit snugly together.

Step 4: Use a Stanley knife to trim and secure the tiles tight against the walls. Once you have finished you can use a damp cloth to wipe away the dust and debris. NOTE: DO NOT SAND THE VENEERED CORK TILES. This will damage the top surface and cause discolouration with the polyurethane.

Step 5: Roll a coat of recommended polyurethane onto the tiles, covering the entire surface. Allow the polyurethane to cure for at least 24 hours. If applying a second coat, lightly hand sand the floor (400 grit) before wiping down and repeating the process.

Step 6: Leave the floor untouched for another 24 hours (longer if possible) to achieve the best results. Your cork floor is now finished!

CLEANING: Please avoid using solvent-based cleaners, as your tiles are water-based and require gentler cleaning products. A mixture of water with a small amount of vinegar or lemon is sufficient for cleaning your cork floor. Do not use a steam mop.

Cork is a sustainably harvested material. No trees are cut down and raw cork is 100% renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. Because cork is a natural product, there can be colour variation. Please check all tiles, prior to laying as no claims will be made once the tiles are laid.
