Laying suggestions

The person in charge of installation must check all material before installing it. Place some tiles on the floor (approx. 3 m2) and check the overall technical and aesthetic characteristics with particular care.

 

LAYING

With adhesives for products with a low porosity. After grouting, remove any excess product as quickly as possible by repeatedly washing the area with a sponge and water. Then perform acid washing.

 

SUBSTRATE

Compact cement bed.

 

JOINT WIDTH

2 mm for rectified tiles and 4 mm for not ground tiles. The width of grout joints must be established by the installation supervisor, unless grout widths are regulated by national laying standards.

 

GROUT COLOUR

Grey or matching the colour of the tile. Before using fine-grain coloured grout on lapped, polished or brushed products, always perform a test. If the coloured pigment is very adhesive, it may be very difficult to remove.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
