INSTALLATION AND DOCUMENTATION
Architectural concrete slabs Creative Concrete
have been designed and manufactured so that they can be easily, quickly and economically installed. The innovative composition of the mix and special production conditions on the Polish market of architectural concrete make Creative Concrete Luxum so good and can be effectively, quickly and relatively cheaply installed, without the need for specialist solutions and a specially trained team. Thanks to Luxum solutions you save time and money.
It is also worth taking into account the fact that the concrete slabs from Luxum can be delivered to the construction site in Poland within 24 hours.
Creative Concrete concrete slabs are cut and machined like large ceramic tiles, and in the vast majority of cases are glued together.
Before installation, always read and observe the information and recommendations contained in the regulations and pass them on to the installer.
We also recommend Luxum’s authorized assembly teams, whose experience and knowledge in the assembly of concrete slabs will allow for flawless assembly.
Mount the plates evenly and keep them level. Use a spirit level and do not level the plate to the plate.
The final effect must be taken into account, not the episode. When the slab does not adhere to the slab according to the level, it can be properly ground. This is not a problem because they are concrete slabs. In addition, the edges should be wiped away from any dust and possible unevenness.
Luxum offers 2 types of adhesive for architectural concrete. Ask your consultant which adhesive is right for your planned installation.
Concrete slabs Luxum single-component adhesive mounting
Hybrid glue, waterless Invisible
290 ml cartridge – yield up to 1.5 m².
Decorative concrete slabs can be glued to:
Creative Concrete architectural concrete slabs can be glued with one-component adhesive up to a board thickness of 2 cm and a size of 120×60 cm, and the facade up to a size of 100×50 cm.
The maximum weight of the material to be fixed per square metre must not exceed 35 kg.
Remove oils, fats, dust and poorly bound paint or varnish coatings, as well as residues from previous adhesives, paints, etc. from the substrate.
In case of connections with highly porous and absorbent substrates, e.g. gas concrete, it is recommended to use a primer for hybrid adhesives. If in doubt, carry out an adhesion test.
The substrate should be load-bearing, seasoned, free from coats, weak plasters, paint coatings and wallpapers.
In the case of weaker substrates and gypsum plasters, it is recommended to align the walls with GK or unpainted OSB.
Stick concrete and stone slabs to the substrate within max. 8 minutes.
Determine the size of the joint with crosses and press evenly against the plate to be installed. For optimal durability, press the boards with the glue applied to the substrate so that a 2-3 mm ventilation gap is created between them. The spacing will ensure that the adhesive joint is able to transmit deformations well.
Fixing of concrete slabs on floors – silver glue by Luxum and glue Sika Bond-T8
Invisible installation method
Before installation, impregnate the concrete slabs with Luxum architectural concrete impregnate twice using the “wet on wet” method, evenly with a sponge roller or with a short bristle. Impregnate the front and sides of the board, as well as the cut areas.
25 kg bag – up to 5 m² capacity
Apply the reverse side of the concrete slab and the substrate with quartz sand primer, concrete-contact type, apply the adhesive with a trowel and trowel over the entire surface in accordance with the instructions of the Luxum adhesive manufacturer.
Determine the size of the joint with crosses and press evenly against the plate to be installed. In the case of large format boards, you can use levelling strips, e.g. Rubi System.
Luxum offers two types of glue for architectural concrete. Ask your consultant which adhesive is right for your planned installation.
Fixing the concrete slabs with screws
Visible, decorative way of installation
Mounting the boards on screws is a very simple, effective way of mounting with an elegant decorative effect. The screws allow to mount Luxum concrete slabs in any size and thickness.
Impregnate the Creative Concrete concrete slab byLuxum before installation or cutting.
Drill holes in the corners with concrete drills without impact.
Attach the plate to the ground and mark with a pencil the places where dowel holes are drilled. Drill holes for the expansion plugs in the substrate. Attach and fit the tiles to the ground. Tighten with screws without applying too much pressure to the floor. A flexible pad should be used on each side of the plate. Place the decorative stainless steel caps from the Luxum range on the screw heads.
Anchor mounting of concrete slabs
Invisible installation method, ventilated facades
Creative Concrete architectural concrete slabs can be anchored to standard, generally available stone anchors. This method of installation of concrete slabs is particularly recommended for the installation of large-size slabs 120×60 cm and larger with a thickness of 3 cm.
Anchoring is most often used for the assembly of concrete slabs on high façades and ventilated facades with insulation with a thickness of more than 15 cm.
Impregnate the concrete slab before installation or cutting.
Measure and drill holes in the façade and side of the concrete slabs.
Place the anchors in the mounting holes, secure with mortar and anchor to the ground. For complex facades, use stabiliser plates to fit in. Use only certified anchors.
It is also possible to mount it on visible decorative anchors with caps – interiors and facades.
Installation of concrete slabs for OSB and GK slabs
Creative Concrete architectural concrete in cladding is characterized by excellent quality, durability and strength, but this is not a guarantee that it will not be damaged during or after installation. Therefore, the installation of architectural concrete slabs must be preceded by a thorough analysis of the substrate on which the cladding will be glued.
The substrate should be sound and stable, compact, seasoned and clean
You cannot install concrete panels on weak or gypsum plasters. If a gypsum plaster is to be used as a substrate, it should be chiselled, the surface should be levelled with cement-lime mortar or a substitute substrate made of appropriate GK or OSB boards should be installed.
OSB chipboards or plasterboard are relatively cheap and easy to process and install. When bonding architectural concrete slabs to them, certain rules must be observed and appropriate products must be used.
It is a wood-based material made of coarse-graded chips, pressed onto sheets under pressure at high temperatures. The binder is a suitable resin, which reduces the adhesion of the adhesive. OSB, due to technical properties and conditions of use, are divided into classes:
OSB 1 – universal board, does not transfer loads, can be used inside the building, in dry and airy rooms. Not suitable for use as a base for architectural concrete.
OSB 2 – board capable of carrying a load. Use only in dry and ventilated rooms.
OSB 3 – load-bearing board, for installation inside and outside the building, in sheltered places, not exposed directly to moisture.
OSB 4 – a board with high parameters, carries high loads. Can be used under more difficult conditions, even in humid areas.
When installing Luxum architectural concrete slabs, OSB 3 and OSB 4 are used. They are successfully used as a substitute substrate.
OSB are easy to install, but can be a difficult substrate. Sometimes they twist due to factors such as humidity, excessive load, incorrect installation, etc.
Appropriate impregnation protects OSB and significantly extends its lifespan.
Architectural concrete wallcoverings on OSB can only be glued by a qualified professional. Starting with the lining, thoroughly clean the OSB from the layers that weaken the adhesion of the adhesive:
residues paints, varnishes.
The cleaned OSB should be wiped thoroughly (sanded) with abrasive paper and a primer should be used to increase the adhesion capacity. After the primer has dried, we start gluing concrete formats. The high formability of OSB boards limits the use of cement-based adhesives, except for high-plastic adhesives. The two-component adhesive for architectural concrete Luxum is a good choice here. It is characterized by high flexibility and excellent adhesion. The Luxum two-component concrete adhesive is white and does not cause discolouration when installing concrete slabs. It is important that both the substrate and the reverse side of the slab, i.e. the contact point between the concrete slab and the adhesive, is primed.
When OSB is installed in bathrooms – it is necessary to apply a high quality elastic foil to the subfloor. Flexible foil is best applied with a roller or brush, but not earlier than 8 hours after the application of the ground. The foil will protect the substrate watertight. It is best to apply the film twice in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. The second coat should be applied after the first one is completely dry, i.e. after about 3 hours. In expansion joints of walls and floors use sealing tapes – they should be glued into the fresh, second layer of elastic foil. After 24 hours, the installation of concrete slabs can be carried out in accordance with the procedures.
MFP boards, like OSB, belong to the family of wood-based boards and consist of wood chips, compressed and bonded with resins. They differ from OSB by the chip arrangement – in the MFP building board the chips are arranged in different directions in the entire cross-section of the board, which makes its bending strength equal along both axes.
Currently, instead of OSB 3 we recommend MFP building board, which has much better technical parameters and is easier to process.
Plasterboard As the name suggests, plasterboards are made of altered stucco gypsum, where a weak plasterboard is glued to both sides of the board. GK boards are produced by type:
GKB (standard – ordinary) – general purpose boards, used as dry plasters for walls and ceilings. It can be used in rooms where relative humidity does not exceed 70%.
GKBI boards (impregnated) – such a board is produced as GKB with additional gypsum hydrophobic protection, where the addition of silicates is used. Panels for use in rooms with humidity not exceeding 85% – provided that the surfaces are completely covered with materials resistant to moisture and only in ventilated rooms. After reinforced installation of the slab and proper preparation, it can be used as a base for architectural concrete cladding.
GKF (flame-retardant) – gypsum cardboard boards with fibreglass admixture. Their characteristic feature is increased fire resistance. They are often used as a protection against fire and in the construction of cold fireplaces. We use them in rooms where the humidity is below 70%. After a solid, reinforced installation, they are suitable for the Creative Concrete architectural concrete cladding from Luxum.
GKFI (flame retardant, impregnated) – a board containing glass fibre and hydrophobic substance (water repellent). The board has a significantly increased fire resistance and is used in rooms where moisture can occur – such as bathrooms and attics. In bathrooms, use with flexible foil. GKFI enjoys excellent opinions from experts. This type of plasterboard can be used after proper preparation as a substrate for architectural concrete slabs.
GKP (base board for plaster) – the board most often installed on the supporting structure of buildings. It is a type of GK board with a high cardboard absorptive capacity – which is a great base for plaster. Not recommended for installation of concrete slabs.
Composite slab – slabs manufactured with the addition of an insulating material such as polystyrene or polyurethane foam. It can be used in interior insulation with insulation thicknesses from 20 to 60 mm.
In order to prepare the ground for the lining of architectural concrete panels made of plasterboard, we prepare the surface similarly to OSB, but we do not grind it.
As in the case of OSB, carry out a joint inspection at the point of contact between the boards. Fill the visible gaps with filler mortar. No thickening may remain on the surface of the GK boards.
Bathrooms, spa, garages, kitchens, swimming pools etc. They’re damp rooms. We use green GK boards.
Please note that the green GK board is more resistant to high humidity in the air and will not degrade in direct contact with water. In a “wet” room, it is necessary to protect the substrate by applying double layers of elastic foil (liquid foil). In this way you will protect the green GK board from the destructive penetration of moisture, water and water vapour. Secure corners with a sealing tape, because the foil alone cannot withstand the stresses that are created in such a place. On the prepared surface it is possible to start gluing prepared, primed and impregnated concrete slabs. Glue with a high-elastic adhesive, ensuring high adhesion of concrete slabs, made of Luxum concrete to the surface.
When finishing with architectural concrete panels, e.g. bathtubs or plasterboard walls:
Apply a minimum of double layer of GK panels and significantly thicken the number of profiles used.
It is best to use reinforced door profiles instead of standard profiles for plasterboards. The substrate will then show greater stability.
OSB boards are more rigid and stable than GK boards. The thickness of OSB must not be lower than 22 mm, and in the case of OSB walls, a much thicker board and solid profiles must be used.
It is important to remember that GK and OSB, which are the base for concrete slab linings, absolutely must be installed professionally, which means solid and stable. The surface of the panels must be thoroughly cleaned. If the substrate is not prepared professionally, even the best adhesives can be used, which is the two-component adhesive for architectural concrete Luxum, which has the best opinions – it may not be completely satisfactory.
We encourage you to use the suggestions of authorized assembly teams during the assembly process.
*All installation instructions are for information only. More detailed information can be found in the regulations. The final decision on how and how the assembly should be carried out is made by the assembler or site manager.
