Instalation of Granito tiles and slabs

- Place on a levelled concrete slab using standard cement adhesive. Double bonding (apply on floor and back of the tile) to properly set the tiles. Thin grout lines (1 to 2 mm) filled with liquid cement based grout. Leave a thicker gap for under-floor heating and outdoor installations (min 2mm). With unicolour tiles, coloured grout in the same tone as the tiles may be used if an abrasive polishing is carried out at the end of the installation.

Abrasive polishing to level and enhance finish

- Abrasive polishing of the surface with a fine grain disc is recommended after installation. This will level the tiles (if necessary), clean the installation, bring out tone consistency and shine to the floor. This process is similar to the abrasive polishing of marble, natural stone or terrazzo. It should be carried out by a marble or natural stone specialist. It should be followed by sealing with an impregnator. For more shine, the floor may be buffed with a buffing machine and wax.
0:50 minGranito Tiles Sealing (Mosaic Sealer) - video

Domestic floors - Sealing is necessary

- A sealer is an impregnating liquid that fills the pores in the surface of the tile. It is usually applied once after laying and on a clean and dry floor. The sealer limits the absorption of liquids and grease, helping protect the tiles against stains. Apply lightly with a brush or a wool roller, as the tiles saturate quickly. Once absorbed, remove any excess of sealer and even out the distribution with a cloth. Excess sealer left on the surface will dry and leave shiny or yellowy residues that can only be removed with a soft abrasion.

Heavy traffic floors: Crystallise and strengthen Granito

- Crystallisation is a mechanical/chemical process that attaches fluorosilicates (of sodium or magnesium) to the crystals in the surface of limestone type floors, hardening and waterproofing surfaces. Marble, travertine, sedimentary stones, Terrazzo and Granito can all be crystallised, after the installation or at any time during the life of the floor, to restore and regain the original look. A professional natural stone and marble care expert should carry out the crystallisation using a single disc machine, a stainless steel or bronze wool disc and fluorosilicate based products.

Crystalliser for houshold use

- For domestic use, Mosaic offers a more practical and non-toxic crystalliser (without fluorosilicates). This product is best applied using a buffing machine with a steel or fibre disc. Contact a representative for further information.

Cleaning and daily maintenance

- Mop with water and PH neutral soap. Natural PH neutral soap cleans and nourishes the Granito while protecting it. Do not use harsh cleaners or acidic and alkaline products that attack limestone based floors. Colourless wax for marble can be used as part of maintenance from time to time. It will help enhance colours, create a patina and protect the floor.

Daily cleaning and maintenance

- Mop, water and neutral soap. Natural soap cleans, disinfects and nourishes the terrazzo while protecting it. Do not use harsh detergents or acid or alkaline products. The addition - from time to time - of neutral wax to the cleaning water enhances the colours, creates a patina and protects the floor.

    • PROPERTIES - Mosaic Sealer is a liquid impregnator that limits absorption of water and oils into porous materials. It penetrates the pores of the tiles and does not affect the natural finish of a cement floor. This solvent and resin based product is to be applied with a brush, cloth or roller on a clean and dry surface. One or more successive applications until the tiles are saturated. Ensure the room is ventilated and avoid applying in excess. Any sealer not absorbed within a few minutes will remain on the surface. You may buff the surface with a fine cloth to remove any excess and avoid a shiny or patchy finish. Always try the sealer on a loose tile before applying it on the entire surface, in order to measure the grade of absorption of the tiles.

    • Cleaner2
    • Litre: 0,75L
      Price: £12.5 Excl. VAT
      Add to cart
    • PROPERTIES - Soft acid-based liquid cleaner that acts on calcareous elements and residues from installation.It will also dissolve a thin layer of the tile surface and help with cleaning. The product is sprayed over the floor. It may be used pure or diluted, depending on the level of cleaning required. Upon spraying, the acid reacts with the calcareous elements, producing gas bubbles and a coloured sludge. A few seconds after spraying, the acid is no longer acting and the chemical cleaning process must be immediately completed with mechanical abrasion using a buffing machine with a fibre disc (or a green scouring pad). If necessary, add water prior to buffing. Rince immediately and thoroughly with clear water to remove the residues and sludge.
