1、Throw glazed tiles
Before paving, test the shop to see the color, the effect, to determine the best paving way. Followed the test to prevent bumps, so as not to damage the glazed, and finally in the paved tile surface must cover a thick protective layer to prevent paint pollution or scratches. To prevent thermal expansion and contraction to stay in the gap 1-3MM gap, with the US sewing agent treatment. Due to the low water absorption of laze products, better use tile adhesive paste to avoid falling off.
Before paving, test the shop to see the color, pattern, todetermine the best paving way. In order to prevent thermal expansion and contraction, stay 1-2MM gray stitch, using the mold sealant or US sewing agent. Construction process must cover the protective layer, to prevent paint pollution or scratches.
3、Antique brick paving
Before paving, soaking the tiles for at least half an hour. Paving according to the color, the effect, to determine the best paving way. In addition, according to the size and characteristics of the brick, leaving 3-5MM gray seam, using the mildew sealant, light gray, dark gray or white; with bumps, Clean the cement and stains on the brick surface during the construction process.To keep its antique taste, it is better not to cut the edge.
4、K crystal tiles / microcrystalline stone paving
Microcrystalline stone / K crystal tile its surface is crystal glass surface. put the paperbetween the film to prevent scratches or bumps. For cutting, need to use professional desktop sawing cutting, can not be cut by hand saw, or it will be easy to damage the glass surface; Beforepaving, put anti-fouling agent to prevent seepage; The tile surface must cover a thick protective layer to prevent paint pollution or scratches; After finished paving, clean and remove the tile surface protective film; In order to prevent thermal expansion and contraction, leave1.5MM gap with the US sewing agent treatment;
5、Indoor wall tiles
Before paving, you must remove the tile pieces into the water soaking for more than 2 hours, the water needs to exceed the brick surface. Pick up the need to remove the patch of dust, grease and other debris, to ensure that deeper paste; tile paving 12 hours after the need to hit the brick surface inspection, if found empty drum phenomenon, need to re-paving, paving immediately after cleaning the surface, remove all the bonding material;
6、Paving do not need to stay seam
Paving, this is the basic paving common sense. But there are always some customers and owners favor "seamless paving"
The reason customers want "seamless paving" is nothing more than:
1) seamless or slit paving effect more beautiful, make the wall looks smooth and clean
2) confuse the concept that "seamless brick" can not stay on the seam shop
3) After leaving the slot, the gap is easy to filth, and it is difficult to clean
4) lack of professional knowledge, that business suggested that the seam is because the quality of the tile is not good enough
Encounter customers who do not want to stay brick, how should we explain?
① stay can prevent tiles hollowing, deformation, cracking, jumping even fall off!
Tiles are bound to stay, not alarmist, is the objective demand! Tiles, although the physical properties of a more stable material, but it will still because of temperature and humidity changes in a variety of swelling phenomenon; paving cement mortar dry after the same Produce force. If the brick will lead to the role of the adjacent tiles, and hollowing, deformation, cracking, jumping even fall off and other issues, are likely to produce!
② stay seam paving can save material
Storing and laying in accordance with the actual size of the shop area to adjust the brick spacing, so that the corner as much as possible the use of the whole brick, both beautiful and time-saving materials.
③ tiles have errors, brick joints can reduce the negative impact of the error
All tiles have a certain degree of error, such as length, straight angle, edge straightness and so on. Specification error will make the already very thin suture more straight, flatness error will make a little bit of the wrong block, cross seam is not uniform. And the appropriate seam, to ensure that the brick surface patchwork neatly, to avoid the size of the brick caused by patchwork skew, affecting the overall paving effect.
④ appropriate stay more rich paving effect
Tiles are more in line with the aesthetic level of ordinary people, can greatly enhance the three-dimensional sense. Especially the pursuit of special effects of antique tiles, wall tiles, cultural tiles, etc., but also need to stay wide seam.
⑤ slippery more difficult to clean
Seamless paving, the gap between the tiles is too small, if it is more difficult to clean the dirt. And now paving tiles commonly used caulking materials, daily cleaning and maintenance is not difficult. Some cleaning tips, if not enough, you can also buy a special US sewing agent cleaning agent.
⑥ reduce the construction error caused by the joints are not straight
Paving tiles is a rigorous job, the technical requirements of the workers is very high, and the process of hand-tiling can not be completely accurate, even if the joints are not straight enough, leaving the seam operation can adjust the overall effect.
⑦ US sewing agent rich color, anti-fouling effect is also greatly improved
In the past, the tiles are usually white cement mixed caulking agent, the color is more single, and the white brick is also easy to show dirty. And now, continue to improve the sealing material, the color is more diverse, the basic to meet the tiles of color matching needs. Second, the anti-fouling performance is also greatly improved, sealing agent, the United States Department of sewing agents, the United States and other products are not easy to stick easy to dirty, easy to yellow, easy to mold and other issues.
7、Do you need to soak the tiles before paving?
The tiles are soaked because the tiles have a lot of fine inside the gap, and it is a certain degree of water absorption, if not soaked or soaked in water is not enough to shop directly, then the tiles will melt the moisture of the slurry, making tiles And the cement connection part of the gap, bonding is not strong, resulting in hollowing and tile off and other issues.
Which tiles need to be soaked?
High water absorption tiles are generally soaked, for example: interior wall tiles, small size antique tiles and other ceramic products close to the ceramic must be soaked; low water absorption tiles do not need to soak, because the low water absorption. The tiles of their water absorption are essentially equal to or less than 0.5%. Tiles are soaked, that is, the tiles are completely soaked into the water, it is generally recommended to use a larger capacity of the basin for soaking; need to pay attention not to use the water pipe to simply pour the tiles, because this way can not let the tiles soaked Post it is likely to be a variety of problems. Because of the different water absorption of different tiles, so the soaking time does not have a specific standard, but the end result is as much as possible to let the tiles to drink water until the tile surface no longer take the bubble so far.
