Floor Covering Laying Instructions The best possible tiles will not give satisfactory service without careful preparation of the underlying floor and the correct type of adhesive. It is vital that the floor should be clean, dry and level, without trace of dust, wax, grease, oil, solvents etc. Sheets of plywood or hardboard, at least 4mm thick, can be used to cover wooden floors prior to the laying of the tiles. Boards should be fixed with screws, counter sunk or serrated nails at approximately 150mm intervals over the face and approximately 100mm intervals along the edges. Moisture content of screed must not exceed 3%. This should be checked prior to installation. If in doubt consult adhesive manufacturers.

Self-Levelling Compound Pumpable (SLC P) Fast-Track Self-Levelling Screed. abe.®screed SLC P is a single pack, rapid hardening cement-based screed for levelling floors where the quick setting is essential. abe.®screed SLC P can be hand applied by trowel (0 – 20 mm) or can be pumped (4 – 20 mm). For pumped applications, an 8 mm average thickness would be a typical expectation on a reasonably level base. For fast track refurbishment and new construction where finishes such as carpets, ceramic tiles, vinyl, woodblock or cork need to be applied quickly. Used for smoothing floors in office buildings, dwellings, shops, public buildings, schools, hospitals and airports where a fast track, smooth underlay is required for the above finishes.
Tough Epoxy Paint abe.®cote 337 is a two component, solvent free, water-dispersed, polyamide cured epoxy.
SLATE: A fine: grained, foliated, metamorphic rock which splits along its parallel cleavage plains. The vast range of colours is derived from the minerals contained in the shale from which it was formed
LIMESTONE: Calcareous rock in the widest sense. In Anglo-Saxon nomenclature this term is often used to distinguish a non-crystalline marble, (namely a calcareous stone = limestone) from a crystalline metamorphic stone = marble).
Quartzite collection from Union Tiles: A metamorphic stone, 80% of which is made up of quartz which is often easy to split into slabs or sheets.
Sandstone: Calcitic sedimentary stone, made up primarily from fragments of detritus and mineral granules, having dimensions between 1/6mm and 2mm. There are a great number of types of Sandstone depending on the genesis, structure and composition: eolianite, arkose (feldspathic -quartz sandstones) and lithic arenites (which may also be calcareous containing calcite or aragonite), etc.
Travertine Collection: Carbonatic sedimentary rock of chemical origin, with a characteristic cemented of vacuolar structure. Travertine originates due to precipitation of calcium carbonate from saturated water which leaves voids in the stone which is a characteristic of all travertine. These voids are usually filled.
Union Tiles Marble Collection – Stone is the natural construction material par excellence: man has dealt with it from his origins, producing weapons, tools, trinkets, but also building shelters and fences for his protection. The millenary ties between stone and the history of mankind originated with an epochmarking passage, when stones lost their “natural shapelessness” and were “configured”, to follow the aspirations of a construction that was destined to become Architecture, Art, Symbolism and a Wonder for man. Throughout history, in fact, marble has been used in many applications, but one of its highest and most sublime contributions has been within the ambit of architecture, increasing numbers of architects and designers have a predilection for stone because of to the many aesthetic renderings it can take on: modern finishing, which is possible with the use of machinery that employs advanced technologies, allows man to satisfy even the most creative requirements.
