• How to apply a MORTEX coating to a wooden floor?

    OSB, MDF and similar boards.
    In an attempt to avoid cracks due to movement and/or expansion of the substrate, it is possible to place the MORTEX product on an OSB / MDF floor. To do this, we recommend gluing and screwing (stainless steel screws to prevent rust) two layers of OSB / MDF boards, crossing them (1st layer from left to right and 2nd layer perpendicularly), as shown below.

    Next, an uncoupling membrane will be pressed into the first technical layer of MC2-N. This will provide greater stability in your floor and reduce the risk of cracks, although there is no such thing as zero risk.

    It is of course the way in which these plates are placed and the quality of the work that will ensure the stability of this structure.
    Of course, you can never be sure to avoid a very large movement.
