For you guys who also do laminate, just finished a job with that stuff. Fun 3 1/2 in wide, random ( 3 lengths) . Looks like a Uniclic system but the dang end joints would keep popping loose. And I was not hitting it hard. Maybe it was how that was stored in their warehouse. Accliamated for five days.

That reminds me about accliamation in wrapped boxes. How does that rh work? :mrgreen:

It's in the lit, if it's in the literature that there is a rh/temp requirement how is it that the reccomended accliamation time allows for the product to gain or lose moisture content? That goes for all wood as well. It's a catch 22 in a box with the installers name on it. lol

Installed a ton of Nirvana. Never had that problem with the 7 1/2" square edge. But then they came out with that 3 1/2" beveled. The stuff has a super loose lock on the ends ( you can literally kick um loose). At first I was taping the ends, what a PITA. Tossing out that idea....I was able to tap the ends in with zero hydraulicing, ( is that a word?). Not easy to do, even minute hydraulicing kicks the ends out.

I was told the pin holes in the plastic wrapping is suppose to let the product acclimate. I think it's voodoo bs.

Voodoo accliamation policy's? LOL Yet another good topic.

I also noticed bannana planks, lots of them, particularly on the longer ones. I thought it may be the smaller width allowing them to twist easier. I'm charging double on the next one. :roll:
