WARNINGS FOR LAYING WHITE-BODY WALL TILES
Glue-laying with class C2TE adhesives according to EN 12004 is recommended.
Laying on non-masonry walls (e.g. plasterboard walls) is not recommended. Lay the tiles with glue and directly without wetting them. Seal the joints with a waterproof liquid mortar. If the joints are not completely watertight, moisture can be absorbed by the substrate
of the tile causing visible stains through the glaze. White-body double-fired white-body coatings are produced with an intentionally convex surface because, having >10% absorption, with dwell and depending on atmospheric characteristics,
they take on a standardized flatness over time. At the time of laying, if the tiles have not yet assumed their flatness, the use of self-levelling agents is recommended, which will make it possible to obtain a perfectly flat laying
WARNINGS FOR LAYING VALID FOR ALL TECHNOLOGIES
CALIBER: when laying mixed formats, balance differences in calibers with joints.
THICKNESS: even out any differences in thickness between backgrounds and/or decorations by using more glue under the thinner elements.
JOIN: for proper execution of the work, a joint of at least 2/3 mm is recommended. It is not recommended to lay with a plain joint.
QUALITY: upon receipt of the material, and in any case before laying, it is important to carefully check the tone, caliber and choice of material, as no claims can be accepted on material already laid whose defects were visible before laying.
PRECAUTIONS: when laying, it is necessary not to mark the material on the surface of use with pencils (graphite) or indelible markers, especially for sanded products.
UNDERGROUND: laying with glue is recommended. Please note that, at the time of laying, the subfloor must be stable, dry and mature, not frozen and not excessively hot, and in any case it is necessary to follow the instructions of the manufacturers of the subfloor materials and adhesives
specifi c used.
DILATION JOINTS: In large rooms it is absolutely necessary to place expansion joints regularly; while, for small rooms it is suffi cient to leave a slight gap between tiled and perimeter walls. It will then be the skirting board that will cover the gap giving a fi nishing appearance. However, please refer to the advice/suggestions of the designer or site manager.
