HANDY ADHESIVE HINT
Use CERCOL F.55 stone slip adhesive and prepare the wall 1 day in advance with primer F.28.
Corner pieces are not required
Because they are made from natural stone, the slips are coloured through and through. Just apply a little impregnating agent or wax onto the cut edge and the colour of the edge is fixed in no time at all. By the way, corner pieces are not required. The slips can be joined ‘cold’ on the outside corners (=without leaving any space).
Only 5 to 10 mm thick (or 10 to 15 mm)
Practical size Z-shape circa 40 x 12 cm and most of the slips are only 5 to 10 mm thick. Easy to install. TESU natural stone cladding is always installed without joints. Just stick them on the wall and you are ready!
Also suitable for outside use
TESU natural stone cladding can also be used outside. The only difference is that you have to put a layer of adhesive on the entire wall and press the slips into it. Outside use is endorsed by the manufacturer, but the responsibility for professional handling and the risk of, for instance, frost damage, remains with the end user. You can make the stone water-repellent with SEALGUARD. This also minimises the risk of frost damage.
When ordering TESU natural stone cladding please take into account that handling and cutting the slips will lead to breakages. In addition, some slips may get broken during shipment. However, there is no need to panic, because even broken pieces can be used. The slips are installed half-brick, so you also need uneven pieces, without running short. We advise to order around 5 to 10 % more than the area you have measured.
Example: length 3.00 and height 2.50 is 3 x 2.5 = 7.5 m² plus 10% is 8.25 m² required.
The slips are sold by the box. By placing the items in your ‘shopping basket’, you will get an overview and total price for your order. Slips are always sold by the box (depending on the thickness there are 7 or 8 slips in each box).
