Make and lay out tiles from the centre of the area to be laid so that cut tiles, if any, will be on the outer edges towards the wall.
The work size which we try to maintain for better technical performance is 600 X 600 mm on average. It is advisable to maintain a gap of 1 mm to 2 mm between every two tiles to allow possible expansion as per BIS/EN tolerance norms.
Complete the laying process by pressing the cut tiles firmly into place along walls / floors.
Allow 3-4 days of for bed curing after this period fill the joints with grouts. Usage of grout sealant is recommended for keeping grout free of dust.
Fifteen minutes after finishing the grouting process, wipe off excess grout with a damp sponge and polish the tiles with a soft and dry cloth for cleaned surface. The tiles can also be cleaned with mild acid ( However, Hydrofluoric acid and its derivatives should not be used).
Please note that the brand does not accept any liability in case of problems arising out of non-adherence to these fixing instructions.
