Hydraulic - Laying

- Cement tiles must be installed on a well levelled, clean and dry surface. Humid subsoil will cause fur deposits on the tile's surface.

- Apply the adhesive evenly on the surface the tile is being laid on, using a large-toothed comb trowel. Also apply adhesive on the back of the tile.

- Position the tiles with your hands (without hammering) leaving a thin gap (1 or 2 mm, thickness of a filling-knife) for the joint.

- Once the tiles are installed and the cemente adhesive dry, clean the surfaceby scrubbing it and clear with water. It will remove the thin layer of pigmented dust that can still cover the tiles.

Grouting

- Never use dyed grout. Pigments from the joint might stain the tiles irreversibly.

- Fill the gap between tiles using a filling-knife, without spreading the grout on tiles.

- The grout surplus must be cleaned immediately with a wet cloth/sponge.

- Never use acid (cement dissolver) to remove the excess or stains of groute.
