  • Remove the plastic covering before installation or cutting, the covering is only for protection during transit.
  • Preferably use adhesives instead of conventional cement mortar.
  • Leave a gap of 5-8 mm underneath the skirting to counter any structural movement and thermal expansion.
  • It is mandatory to leave an expansion gap of 8-10mm every 5 meters wherever the expanse is large.
  • The joints should not be filled immediately. Wait for the bed to dry and then fill up the gap with a high quality resin.
  • To clean the composite surface use lukewarm water or some good quality stone cleaner. DO NOT use phenyl or Harpic kind of cleaner, it will stain the surface permanently.
