  • Socle insulation

    The problem of ground floor’s finishing usually involves two aspects. First, the desirability of an aesthetic view. The second, and more rational reason, is, naturally, the protection of a house from humidity and temperature variations. This manual demonstrates that anyone may finish a ground floor. It is simple because EPS boards (foamed polystyrene) are installed using a foam adhesive and boards are installed over the insulation using the same method.  Wish you a useful and interesting viewing and active discussion in the comments section!

  • Thermal insulation using foam adhesive and insulating plates

    An affordable, convenient and quick way to insulate the walls of a garage, house or shed using insulation boards and a special polyurethane adhesive.

    Polyurethane adhesive has good bonding and sealing properties. It is easily bonded with various building materials (all kinds of metal, wooden and stone surfaces as well as plastered, painted or varnished surfaces), except Teflon, polyethylene and silicone surfaces.

    The resulting adhesive joint is strong but sufficiently elastic.Wish you a useful and interesting viewing and active discussion in the comments section!

    Check out this great video on how Penosil foam sculptures are made. Foam skulptuures are made every year in cooperation with (NUKU) Estonian Youth and Puppet Theatre, many talented sculptors and artists. In 2012, in cooperation with NUKU and the students of the Estonian Art Academy three-dimensional sculpture letters we prepared. In total thousand cans of PU foam were spent on preparing them.  In 2011, the sculptures of singer Georg Ots, prime ballerina Kaie Kõrb, conductor Tõnu Kaljuste, wrestler Georg Lurich, actress Ita Ever, historian Jüri Kuuskemaa, poet Juhan Viiding and former president Lennart Meri were prepared. However, the first foam figure appeared into the town room during the Old Town days in 2010 when the figure of the nun Elsabe prepared by the design of the artist Kalju Kivi and based on the legend of Jüri Kuuskemaa was exhibited next to the Estonian Youth and Puppet Theatre.                     
  • Foam expansion pressure depending on foam type and application method

    At Masters Club we've decided to examine the foam expansion pressure depending on foam type and its application method.

    In order to do so, we have conducted the following tests, which are based on FEICA OCF TM1009 «Curing Pressure» the effective test method.

    Based on these tests we have concluded that unlike straw foam, a high quality gun foam will not deform door and window frames. However, the foam should be applied correctly.

    Applying it in a rush may impair the high-quality foam effect. See the video for more details.

  • Installation of log house windows with self-expanding tape

    Years ago, foam replaced hard material that was used for the installation of windows as a protection from wind and cold. Today, a new comfortable and efficient product has been introduced – self-expanding sealing tape.

    It is a special elastic polyurethane sealant with open pores, impregnated with a sealing solution. Thanks to its density and elasticity, it protects windows from wind, rain and external air movements. The sealing tape is also fireproof. Areas of application In addition to the installation of windows and sealing of log houses, the sealing tape is also suitable for:

    • sealing the panel joints and ventilation systems of big residential houses made from precast concrete slabs,

  • Carpet installation

    Make sure that you have all necessary tools and protective gear on hand before you begin: a large adhesive comb (4–6 mm between the teeth) to apply adhesive to larger surfaces and a small one (2 mm between the teeth) to apply adhesive to corners and hard-to-reach surfaces, a roller to even out bumps, and knee pads to ensure smooth progress of the work and reduce muscle fatigue while working.A suitable adhesive for installing carpeting is Penosil Premium Floor&Wall UniversalFix 619, which is also suitable for underfloor heating.Clean the surface with a vacuum cleaner.Mix the adhesive well before using it.Pour or apply adhesive to the surface and use an adhesive comb, if necessary. Do not use more adhesive than is necessary for installing carpeting.Move in the direction of your exit to avoid later applying adhesive while standing on carpeting.Apply adhesive evenly across the full width of the room, working in sections. Do not forget to apply adhesive to edges, corners and curved surfaces as well.Then, install pre-measured and pre-cut carpeting.Place carpeting on the floor with pre-applied adhesive and make sure that carpeting runs evenly along walls.Carefully smooth out carpeting to remove air bubbles and ensure that adhesive is in good contact with it. For best results, use a specially designed roller to install carpeting. Make sure that the full surface of the carpeting is in good contact with adhesive.When installing carpeting consisting of several sheets, press edges firmly together and use a roller. This helps to hide carpet seams and adds to their durability.Start with the next floor section, following the above steps.Repeat these steps until carpeting is installed on the entire floor.
  • Differences between straw and gun foam

    In this video, we demonstrate the use of two PU foams, each with a different dispensing method, in the installation of interior doorjambs. For one doorjamb, we use a straw applicator and for the other one, a foam gun. As we see, using straw foam is rather uneconomic in this type of joints. In comparison with gun foam, a considerably larger amount of straw foam had to be used.
