8 keys to installing Ezarri mosaics

Installing Ezarri mosaics requires a specific technique so we recommend following this brief guide that summarises the procedure in 8 steps

1.- PREPARATION OF THE SURFACE

The surface must be smooth and flat.  

2.- CHOICE OF ADHESIVE

As a general rule, Ezarri recommends the use of an adhesive with minimum characteristics of type C2TE, for concrete surfaces.

For installation on other surfaces you can consult us at info@ezarri.com.   

3.- SPREADING THE ADHESIVE

Spread the adhesive evenly with a 6mm notched trowel.

The manufacturer´s recommendations for use should be followed scrupulously.

4.- FITTING OF EZARRI PANELS WITH THE JOINTPOINT® SYSTEM

Fit the panels using the exclusive Ezarri JointPoint® system (https://www.ezarri.com/en/jointpoint) and press down with a rubber float so that all the tiles are perfectly attached. To avoid scratching the mosaic, do not use a metal trowel.

Correct alignment errors and remove excess adhesive.

5.- SELECTION OF THE GROUT

At Ezarri, we recommend the use of epoxy grouts classified as RG.

Coloured grouts that are well combined with the mosaic enhance the aesthetic possibilities and take full advantage of the numerous colours and effects. Ezarri always has a wide range of colours and effects in stock.

6.- APPLYING THE GROUT

Apply the grout using the soft rubber float, removing any excess.

7.- CLEANING

First clean with a special scouring pad to clean the epoxy joints.

This is followed by a second cleaning with a special sponge for epoxy joints.

Repeat this operation until confirming that the mosaic is clean.

At Ezarri we have both the scourer and the special sponge for epoxy that will make the cleaning task much easier.

Finally, allow the grout to dry.

8.- LAST STEP CLEANING OF THE FINISHED JOB

Twenty-four hours after installation, we recommend cleaning with a post-construction cleaning product for a perfectly clean finish.
