  6. Tap the slab with a rubber trowel for a complete fixing, ensuring the air is expelled. It is recommended to start from the center of the slabs and then to move towards the edges.

  7. Complete the laying operations using a suitable sealant, while keeping at least a 3mm joint through the use of spacers. To make this task easier, use the special device for pulling over the slabs, available on the market.

  8. Leveling wedges at each linear meter of the slabs are recommended.

Wall installation

For wall cladding, follow the same procedure as previously shown in the floor installation section. Remember to apply the adhesive using a 15mm U-notch or a 10mm V-notch trowel, and spread towards one direction only. Complete the laying operations using a suitable sealant, while keeping at least a 3mm joint through the use of spacers (7,8). For outdoor laying, keep a 5mm wide joint. Leveling wedges at each linear meter of the slabs are recommended also for wall cladding.
