General Installation Procedure                 

                                                   

The following are only general guidlines for installing Flexistone panels and sheets.  The procedure will be very familiar to those involved in the tiling and decorating trades and will be very straightforward for them to install.

For very specific applications such as using Flexistone externally or on other substrates, please contact our office for further information.

Acclimatise the material by leaving unrolled for 24 hours in the area it which it will be used.

Always make sure that the surface is dry, stable, free of dust and flat.  Sand or lime surfaces must be sealed with an appropriate primer to stabilise.

Lay out veneers and arrange the order in which they are to be adhered.

Spread the adhesive evenly and generously over the area that can be covered in an hour.

Locate the first tile or sheet where required and level.  Firmly roll into place.

Follow this procedure with the rest of the tiles placing them in a butt jointed bond.

Do not let the adhesive to come through the joint, if it does remove at once and rake back.

To cut Flexistone:

Place the material face down on a clean ply board and cut through backing mesh with a stanley knife or similar and break.  If holes are required cut right through material.

To clean the cut edge heat with a hot air gun and press firmly.  If any cracks develop, again heat up and pull togeher with a wooden wedge or similar.

After installation, lightly brush edges or apertures that have been cut on site with a soft bristle brush and then paint on a seal with 2no coats of appropriate sealant.
