FLATBACKS & LISTELLOS INSTALLATION GUIDE
Textured Surface | Profiles & listellos
– Kwela products are handmade products cast in resin, marble dust, pigments, sand and oxides Porosity of 0.27%.
– Slight shading and colour variation is a natural feature of the product. New batches may differ.
– These are reconstituted marble products suitable for all walls.
– These products can be fixed using normal rapid set tile adhesive.
– For very heavy items, or where the listello may be subjected to load, we recommend the use of a latex based admixture.
– Care must be taken to avoid soiling the surface of the listellos with tile adhesive.
– Note that listellos from the “carved” ranges are only available in certain sizes, with repetitive patterns. This pattern should dictate the spacing between listellos.
– Avoid stretching the grout joints to match the tile size – rather butt joint the listellos if necessary to create a more pleasing horizontal flow.
– Due to the textured nature of some of these products the SELECTION AND APPLICATION OF GROUT IS VERY IMPORTANT, as the final appearance may be significantly affected.
– We recommend testing of a small section.
– We suggest that grout is applied lightly to the entire surface of the listello to enhance the design.
– The filling of pitting and holes will make maintenance and cleaning easier. On listellos that feature deep recesses a stiff bristled brush should be used for the application and removal of excess grout.
– After installation the listellos may be cleaned with a diluted acid solution or Grout Off to remove grout residue.
– Thereafter clean with Easy Clean. Avoid harsh chemicals.
