The Muhuhu blocks are tongue and groove and in good reclaimed condition. There is a layer of bitumen on the bases although this should not present a problem. The professional adhesives now available will adhere to the bitumen and stick successfully without the necessity for removal. You can buy our recommended adhesive – Sikabond 5500s on our website.

The blocks will require some preparation prior to laying, particularly along the edges. As a result this will give a tight fit and therefore a better finish. Also of course, after completion of the block laying the floor will need several good sanding passes.
