  • The installation process is very simple and rapid to accomplish. However, great care should be taken so as not to damage tile surfaces and edges during installation process.

    a) The tiles should be laid on perfect flat surfaces. Leave a joint of 1-2mm between tiles in installation. After you prepare the concrete cover, the tiles retain almost 2cm height altogether.  
    b) The tiles can be installed by using either glue/adhesive or thin mortar layer bed. To have a good adherence of floors:

    •  Submerge tiles in a water basin before the installation

    •  It is necessary to trowel glue or mortar on both surface of leveled surface and at back of tiles by using a toothed paint scraper

    c) Laying tiles must be carefully handled to avoid of chipping out on edges. After laying the tiles, level tiles on floors by hands or rubber hammer and construction ruler.

    d) The exceeding adhesive cement on tile surfaces or edges has to be immediately cleaned on the surface with humid cloths. Otherwise such kind of stains will be very difficult to be removed later on.  

    e) Leave the floors untouched and protected until the mortar to be dried naturally enough before grouting.

    f) Fulfill the joints by grouting liquid. Color of this liquid should be white for the most suitable in any case. Other colors can be used on owner preference. Remove all excessive grouting materials before it is dried.  

    g) Wash the floors with soap and clean water and leave floors dried completely, then apply suitable penetrating sealer from qualified manufacturers to have the most expecting floor finishes. It is strongly suggested to test sealer with one single tile before apply the whole floor. 

    h) Depending on traffic frequency, repeat this sealing process every 6-12 months.
     
    TIPS
     
    •  Encaustic cement tile is handmade product and made from natural materials so the tiles are subject to contain color variations. It is  necessary to check tiles randomly before installation to have better distribution of tiles between laying areas to achieve the most uniform floors.   

    •  There will be some calcareous spots on tile surfaces as character of cement tiles to be naturally caused by reaction between chemical factors in cement and water. Those spots will be disappeared automatically from 1 to 2 months afterward of using

    •  Don't leave any space among the squares.  Adjust the squares to form the design well .

    •  A good leveling of your ground will facilitate its polishing.
