Before you lay the tiles, it is recommended to be lined area on the wall further processed primer composition whereby improved adhesion construction compositions and materials are guaranteed to be securely bonded to the surface.Primer before gluing tiles must be completely dry.

glued ceramic tiles in the tile adhesive or "liquid" nails - adhesive composition is selected depending on the surface quality of the wall.If the wall has a small flaws or irregularities, it is best to use a tile adhesive."Liquid" as nails can be used only with a perfectly flat surface.

adhesive on the back surface of the tile is applied very carefully.If a solution of cement or gypsum-based, its excesses must be removed immediately, and it is better to try that it does not protrude beyond the tile boundary.

very important to ensure that the tile was laid exactly horizontally.Monitoring of these parameters should be carried out with the help of a construction level constantly during tiling.

  • ease of installation elements, which will be easy to do yourself.
  • sufficient resistance to mechanical influences with careful operation.
  • easy to care for, as the material does not accumulate dust and easy to put in order with a damp soft cloth.
