1 Sawing

Suitable tools are hand saw, angle grinder and jack saw. A cutter can also be used for thinner ELEMENT construction panels (e.g. EL 4 – EL 10).

2 Notches

(e.g. for pipe ducts) – first cut the fabric down into the foam with cutter. Afterwards the hard foam can be scraped off e.g. with a cross slot screwdriver.

3 Gluing

If an absolutely even gluing surface is required, the edges of the hard foam support element should first be ground. For this, use an emery board.

4 Gluing

(with cartridge adhesives) – application on ELEMENT joints, uncoated edges. We recommend a snake-shaped application of cartridge adhesives.

5 Gluing

To achieve optimal adhesive distribution, the ELEMENT construction panels are rubbed against one another slightly when placed together.

6 Dowelling

with FIX/pre-piercing Use FIX-SD to hold the ELEMENT construction panels in position while the adhesive is drying. We recommend the pre-piercing of the dowel holes with a cross slot screwdriver.

7A Gluing

The fixing adhesive COL-AK can be variably used

  • Clots of adhesive (e.g. for height compensation)


7B Gluing

  • Application with a toothed trowel e.g. for thin construction panels)


7C Gluing

  • Application with a bricklayer’s trowel (e.g. for element joints)


7D Gluing

  • Application with a smoothing trowel (e.g. as a contact layer)


8 Dowelling

Before applying the adhesive, prepierce the holes for e.g. hammer fix plugs FIX-FID with a cross slot screwdriver.

9 Storage

All ELEMENT construction panels must be stored lying down straight in a dry place. If an ELEMENT construction panel should be slightly warped due to improper storage or other reasons, they can usually be straightened by light bending and pressing. Do not bring ELEMENT construction panels into contact with substances containing solvents.
