The highly reflective surface of the polished porcelain tiles adds depth and dimension to a room. Because they are manufactured mainly in larger sizes, their application is suited to larger floor areas. Durability compares with the strength of natural granite. Polished porcelain tiles are available mostly in neutral tones. They add a striking complement to more modern, uncluttered interiors, sometimes interspersed with either matt or shiny mosaics, an elegant border or an elaborately contrasting rossone.

1. PREPARATION

  • Make sure that surface is dry, clean, flat and firm. Do not tile on old floor coverings like vinyl tiles.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Make sure there are expansion joints in the screed.

2. TILE PURCHASING

  • Buy enough tiles to cover the required area – get 10% to allow for cutting and breakages.
  • Make sure all the boxes have the same shade number, and that all the tiles,are the same colour, size and are clear of defects.
  • Tip: Mix 4-5 boxes prior to laying to minimize any possible shade variation.

3. BEGIN TILING

  • Start tiling in the middle of the area.

4. APPLING ADHESIVE

  • Make sure you’re using the correct adhesive for the application.
  • Check screen, substrate and foundation are set for tiling.
  • Apply adhesive evenly using a notched trowel. ( Apply 1m2 at a time)
  • Only mix enough adhesive to use within 1 hour.
  • Work over small areas so the adhesive does not dry.
  • Scrape away excess adhesive, separating each tile from the next.
  • All tiles must be fully embedded using a rubber mallet.

5. CORRECT SPACING

  • Start off by creating building lines in your work space. This will allow you to achieve straight lines.
  • Do not butt join tiles. Spacing is 3mm-6mm.( Please use spacers)
  • When tiling large areas. Create expansion joints to allow for structural movement.
  • This is done by using a flexible compound (such as silicone) between tiles.
  • Expansion joints should be made every 9m2.
  • The perimeter joint needs to be 5-8mm.

6. GROUTING

  • Make sure all the joints are clean.
  • Apply the grout using a rubber squeegee.
  • Grouting should be done 24 hours after the installation of the tiles to allow, the tile to set properly.
  • Once the grout has set the entire area must be cleaned,
  • With a damp cloth, Grout Off and Easy Clean, Cleaning agents are recommended.
  • Avoid walking on the tiles for 2-3 days to prevent loosening of the tiles.
