The procedure of big board tiles paving


1 Preparation

First of all, we need to prepare tile adhesive, three-hole glass suction, serrated plaster, gray spoon, rubber hammer, ruler, leveling pliers set, cleaning cloth.

2 Base surface treatment & Ground treatment

Remove stains such as ash, oil, etc. from the base layer to avoid affecting the adhesion of the tile adhesive. The inside of the base surface must be kept flat, and the unevenness or rough surface can be smoothed with cement mortar, while fully moistening the construction base to prevent empty drums.

3 Modification tile adhesive

Arrange the tile adhesive and water 4:1, stir with a ash spoon until the lubrication is uniform, no obvious block or paste agglomeration, the stirred slurry is allowed to stand for 5-10 minutes and then stirred for 1-2 minutes---tile adhesive ready.

4 Apply tile adhesive

Spread a layer of tile glue evenly on the ground to form a semi-dry layer. Fill the surface with the tile glue again, the thickness is about 0.5CM; meanwhile the tile adhesive can be evenly applied to the back of the tile and tile adhesive should be smeared plenty. When the tile is coated for the back side, the tile adhesive should be evenly smeared with a toothed plaster. It should be noted that when the glue is scraped, the base surface and the large plate need to be scraped in the same direction, which is convenient for air discharge, and avoids the cracking and falling off from the tile adhesive.

5 Handling paving stickers

Use a three-hole glass suction tool to lift the large plate to the construction position, and place it on the base surface of the tile adhesive. At least two workers are required to carry it; the larger area is transported by the mobile frame.

6 Flattening and pressing

The tile is laid flat on the base layer, and the tile is flattened with a rubber hammer to facilitate the discharge of air bubbles, tapping the brick surface, and allowing the brick bottom to be fully eaten, so as to avoid the phenomenon of empty drums. While using a wooden hammer to knock the brick surface flat, measure it with a ruler to ensure that the tile is laid horizontally. (Heyes suggested that in the process of flattening and pressing, try to use the vibrator as well)

7 Leveling

Insert the leveler base every 60cm around the edge of the positioned big board, insert the leveling wedge and clamp the leveler after checking the flatness, adjust the surface flatness of the adjacent big board, and adjust the gap of the big board to about 2mm for subsequent beauty treatment.

8 Empty drum inspection

After one hour of the paving, the rubber surface can be tapped with a rubber hammer to check for empty drums. We suggested that if you hear the floor tiles of "empty" sound, you must try to re-lay it. Caulking can be carried out after 24 hours of the tile paving.

9 Tile surface cleaning

After 24 hours of paving, caulking can be carried out, and the caulking should be filled with flexible or elastic materials. After the sealant has cured, clean the excess sealant with a cleaning towel to keep the tile surface clean.


Construction Tips:

1/When the slab is paved, it is recommended to use tile adhesive instead of cement. Cement paving is easy to cause empty drum phenomenon;

2 / tile adhesive tape thickness is 5-7mm is appropriate, if tile glue is too thick it’s easy to fall off later;

3/ it is recommended to use dry hanging method if pave height is more than 7.2 meters,;

4/ It is recommended to use a beautiful seam/porcelain grout to increase the overall aesthetics of the tile without mildew.
