Throw out the nails and glue, because there’s a dynamic
new way to install solid and engineered hardwood floors.
Elastilon®, a patented resilient underlay membrane, allows virtually any hardwood floor up to 1” to
be installed over any surface, even above and below grade concrete. The new, 1/8” thick peel-and-stick
membrane can cut installation time by more than half and simplifies the installation process dramatically.
Elastilon takes your hardwood floors into every area of the home, even the bathroom or basement.
No subfloor is needed – Elastilon’s elastic, impermeable polyethylene construction can handle up to
3.9% moisture content in the floor underneath, and a higher M.C. with a 6 mil poly vapor barrier. It is
suitable for under-floor heating systems and can be used with any type of hardwood flooring, including
woods with high-expansion characteristics, such as bamboo.
Elastilon helps prevent the gapping, warping or buckling that can occur with nailed or glued floors,
and accommodates the wood’s natural expansion and contraction.
Elastilon works with your wood floor, not against it.
