INSTALLING & MAINTAINING

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.

Step 1: Prepare a perfectly level concrete surface to install cement tiles. It is not recommend to lay down the cement tiles directly on a fresh concrete or a layer compacted cement/sand. Over time, this incorrect technique will create uneven floor tiles that could easily become loose, crack or break.
Be mind to calculate 20mm below the line of the intended floor height (15mm for 20x20 tiles and 4mm for mortar).


Step 2: The tiles can be installed by using either glue/adhesive or thin mortar layer bed. To have a good adherence of floors:
     
 
Step 3: Laying tiles down. This step must be carefully handled to avoid of chipping out on edges. After laying the tiles, level tiles on floors by construction ruler and hands NOT rubber hammer to avoid of cracks. It is important to leave a very small gap (about 1mm) between the tiles.
    
       
 
Step 4: Immediately cleaned on the surface with humid cloths the exceeding adhesive cement on tile surfaces or edges. Otherwise such kind of stains will be very difficult to be removed later on, then leave the floors untouched and protected until the mortar to be dried naturally enough before grouting.
 

Step 5: 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.
 
   

Step 6: 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.
  
   

Step 7: Depending on traffic frequency, repeat this sealing process every 12-24 months.
