How to Apply Glue to a Laminate Flooring Plank

Even though laminate flooring is a glueless, floating-floor installation system, glue is used as a barrier to prevent moisture from seeping into a joint and penetrating the core where two laminate flooring planks come together. By the way, this does not mean that you don’t have to blot up spills immediately. Even with glued planks, you need to mop up fluids as soon as possible.Where to apply glue? You might consider gluing planks in a mudroom where you come in with snow on your boots, or an area five feet immediately around a water source like in a bath, dishwasher or sink.What kind of glue do you use for laminate-flooring planks?Always use a PVA Type II Glue. Some wood glue has too much moisture in it. Choose one in a bottle that allows you to regulate the amount that comes out because you’ll need very little glue to get the job done.Where do you apply the glue to a laminate flooring plank?Apply the glue on top of the tongue – not in the groove. This limits the amount of glue you need. By being closer to the surface, it also acts as a barrier to topical moisture.”See the diagram to correctly locate the tongue on the plank and where to apply the bead of glue – on top of the tongue.What if you make a mess gluing laminate flooring?Some glue will ooze up and that’s perfectly natural. You can you can just wipe up or let it harden and then scrape it off with a plastic putty knife. (If wiping it up, make sure you get all of it so you don’t leave a glue haze.) On a bevel-edged product, be sure to get the glue out of the bevel. Let it dry for 24 hours and you’re done.

Direct Pressure Laminate (DPL)   VS  High Pressure Laminate (HPL)

Direct Pressure Laminate (DPL)


Direct Pressure Laminate flooring is most prevalent in the consumer laminate flooring market. DPL is created by using anywhere from 300 to 500 pounds per square inch (PSI). There are typically four separate layers which are all pressed together at the same time during production: the wear layer, the decorative sheet, the high density fiberboard and then the balancing layer on the bottom. DPL laminate floors are typically priced lower on the spectrum and are available in more colors and styles. In general, laminate floors constructed with DPL mostly land within an AC3 to AC4 Rating.


High Pressure Laminate (HPL)


High Pressure Laminate is constructed a bit differently than DPL, creating a tougher laminate floor and offering maximum durability. HPL is created with the same materials as DPL but with the use of additional kraft paper sheets treated with a phenolic resin, which makes the kraft paper more stiff during the manufacturing process. Additionally, 1300+ PSI is used to fuse the layers together, which is significantly more pressure than used in the DPL manufacturing process. HPL is fused together using a combination of heat and pressure and the layers of HPL are put together in multiple stages rather than all at once like the DPL. You can see the difference the treated kraft paper sheets make in the stiffness and durability of HPL in the pictures below: 


The increased durability of a HPL offers more impact resistance, dent resistance, moisture resistance, heat resistance, wear resistance and edge chipping resistance during installation. The harder sheets of kraft paper also offer a more balanced laminate construction overall. In general, HPL laminate constructions lead to a thicker overall floor, which offers better sound reduction properties than with a thinner DPL laminate floor. In most cases, laminate flooring created with HPL will receive an AC5 Rating and are suitable for applications in heavy commercial settings.
