Outdoor porcelain tiles tilling construction process

Before paving, you should do a good job of cutting and smoothing treatment. Cut according to the design requirements or the actual size. In order to ensure the accurate size, it is appropriate to use the cutting machine to cut. You need put the tile with good size on the operating platform with pulley, and use the machine to cut the tile. After to order to make the edges smooth and fine, it is appropriate to use a portable grinder to polish the edges.

Before tilling, the color should be matched, spelled out and numbered.
1. According to the design requirements of the order of arrangement,
2. the parts of the paving plate, the actual situation of the project for trial spelling,
3. check the floor, ground plane size is in line with the requirements,
4. and the natural pattern and tone of granite selection arrangement.

Trial spell will be good color plate discharge in conspicuous parts, color and specification of the poor paving in the more hidden. As far as possible to make the floor, the ground of the overall figure and tone of harmony and unity, reflecting the advanced art effect of granite finish building.

Surface paving before the bullet line to find the square, should be connected to the room grid line, and pop out the floor, ground elevation line, in order to control the surface flatness of the surface. After the line, should first lay a number of dry line as a benchmark, the role of standard tendons. Generally first from the middle of the room to both sides to take a step back method of paving. Plate in the paving should be wet before soaking water, dry or wipe dry spare. Combined layer and plate should be laid in sections at the same time, paving to be first test pavement, to be suitable, the plate will be uncovered. And then evenly spread on the combined layer of a layer of dry cement surface and water once, can also use cement paste for bonding, while sprinkling water on the back of the plate, to the back of the wet surface dry, before the official paving.

Leveling layer using 1:2 (volume ratio) of dry cement mortar, paving consistency of 2.5 ~ 3.5cm, that is, to the hand into a ball, the ground is suitable for flowering. In order to ensure the bonding effect, the grass-roots surface wet, but also brush with water-cement ratio of 0.4 to 0.5 cement slurry, and with the brush with the floor, paving mortar length of more than 1m, width beyond the width of the plate 20 ~ 30mm, thickness of 10 ~ 15mm. paste paving slabs before, should be in the leveling layer evenly sprinkled with a layer of dry cement powder, and brush dipped in water to play once, while brushing water on the back of the slab, and then the slab will be formally set in the slab. And then the slab formally set on the ground. Formal paving, the board to the four corners at the same time a smooth drop, align the vertical and horizontal joints, with a rubber hammer lightly knocked vibration, and leveling with a horizontal ruler, the seam should be based on the pull out of the seam control line, and to pay attention to the specifications of the board, the size of the same, the board specifications should be within 1mm of the long width error. After 24h of laying, grout the joints with 1:1 diluted cement mortar (cement: fine sand). After the cement in the joints is set, the surface layer is cleaned and the placement of heavy objects is prohibited for 3 days.

If there is a rupture, epoxy resin or 502 adhesive can be used to repair the bonding. When bonding, the bonding surface must be clean and dry. When using epoxy resin glue, two bonding surface coated with glue thickness of about 0.5mm, in more than 15 ℃ ambient temperature bonding, bonding agent in 1H; using 502 glue, inject 502 glue in the bonding surface, slightly pressurized bonding. After bonding, care should be taken to maintain. Maintenance time: when using epoxy resin, room temperature at 20-30 ℃ should be 7D, room temperature at 30-35 ℃ should be 3D; when using 502 glue, room temperature at 15 ℃ should be 24H.

In order to maintain the clear and brilliant finish of the surface layer, the paved surface should be refurbished and treated.

Use wet gauze to clean the surface, if pollution available harder sheep felt block wrapped aluminum oxide powder for dry polishing, or polish with sand wax.

Due to incomplete specifications and cutting edge surface is not flush; or due to the bonded repair panels and other common problems, the surface should be smoothed or surface treatment.

Plate refurbishment treatment, generally using a variety of different types of oil stone grinding flat polished, can also use 400 or 500 water sandpaper with soapy water for rubbing.

Rough grinding should be carried out first, and then fine grinding, until it reaches the grinding flat polished.
