Bitumen removal from parquet blocks?
Answer: no more conflicting advice on the internet - bitumen removal is not necessary (the exception is if you have a very thick layer of bitumen on the blocks, normal levels can be left on and the adhesive will stick it down).
This SikaBond 5500s adhesive does not require total bitumen removal. Many experienced floor fitters use this professional product for laying reclaimed parquet.
