Applicate an adhesive to the foundation using a teeth trowel (3-5mm) and attach Terrawell tiles onto the wall with your hands. Complete an area of 1m² at a time.
It is recommended to make slight gaps (around 0.5mm) between tile pieces. (Lessens damage from external shock, deformation and etc.)
When you would like to redo, insert a spatula carefully behind the tile piece, then rip it off gently. This operation should be done immediately after the first attachment. Please be careful just in case tiles fall off.
* Please press tile gently with your hands when attaching.
* Please do not hit Terrawell with a tool such as a stick. Unlike standard tile, Terrawell can crack and break.
* Joints cannot be filled; joint filler is unavailable.
If the adhesive sticks out to the tile surface, get rid of it with a spatula immediately after attachment.
To finish, wipe the surface powderiness with clean wet sponge/cloth wrung out tightly.
Please do not use a dirty sponge/cloth. It might cause tile getting dirty.
Place a Terrawell piece on a flat bench. Carve a deep scribe line on its back side with a cutter, then place a wood block there (as a cutting guide) and push it to cleave the tile. You can use a diamond cutter as well.
Polish the fracture surface with a electric sander (Sandpaper: #40-#80) to finish.
Terrawell is "non-fired" tile. It is made of raw clay harden with specific natural materials, and it gains strength after installation by absorbing CO2 in the air.
As its strength is lower compared to normal fired tile, please handle with care.
Minute attention is needed especially when unpacking and installing.
