Recommendations for Quartz Tile Installation
From£º Date£º6/15/2013
Tile installation for quartzs can be a nightmare if you don't read the necessary recommendations. Why? Because quartzs have very low porosity, if you don't use the correct adhesive, one thing that can happen to your beautiful quartz tiles is several tiles popping up from the floor or wall. Engineered quartz tiles are made of 90-95% natural quartz and bonded together with polyester resin. As we all know, polyester contracts and dilates more than natural stone itself, therefore the whole tile installation for this type of material should have this in mind.

What most producers recommend, for tile installation is as follows:
1.    Clean the surface: where the tiles are going to be installed, make sure the area is free of cracks, stable, clean (without dust and other debris), smooth, guarantee the perfect setting for the tiles

2.    Preparing the Adhesive: make sure it's the proper adhesive, basically it should be a two component adhesive without water, or better uses latex liquid. The mix should follow this sequence: first the liquid latex component and second the powder component, don't switch this order.

3.    Spread an even flat layer of the adhesive on the tiling area, not thicker than 5 mm

4.    With the notched side of the trowel, comb the flat even layer of adhesive to help the tiles fit in perfectly and securely

5.    To get better results, you should also spread some adhesive on the back of the tile before laying it in place. Make sure you time these operations correctly, make sure the adhesive is not too dry ...

6.    Use rubber mallet to help adjust the tile when fitting it into place

7.    Use flexible cement based grout for the joint area
