LAYING WITH ADHESIVE ON A CONCRETE SCREED

INSTALLATION SEQUENCE

1. The concrete platform must be built to a high standard of workmanship and structured adequately in relation to the specific features of the site, the expected loads and type of traffic, in accordance with the standards of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the Portland Cement Association (PCA), and in compliance with ANSI A137.1, EN197/1-2000 regulations and any and all regulations in force in the area where the site is located.
2. Depending on the size of the paved area, expansion joints may need to be provided in the underlying screed. It is essential for the screed joints to be created in correspondence with the joints of the ceramic slabs.
3. Spread the adhesive or mortar evenly to ensure the pavers will lie flat.
4. Always use Kronos plastic spacers for the 3/16” (0,45 cm) joints, inserting T-shaped spacers around the edges.
5. For the spaces between pavers corresponding with the expansion joints, gaps up to 3/8” (1 cm) wide may be necessary.
6. Carry out careful cleaning after laying in order to remove all traces of adhesive and any joint-filling material from the surface of the pavers.
