1)Create a cement-based footing before proceeding with installation.

2)A good cleaning of the substrate improves installation.

3)Uniformly spread the adhesive onto the surface to make it completely planar.

4)Spread 1mm layer of adhesive onto the back of the slab and remove excess using a 2mm teethed spatula.

5)Hithick slabs are squared and mono-caliber therefore it is possible to allow for a minimum grout line of 2mm.
6)During installation, it is recommended to check the planarity of the tiled surface.
7)Once grouting procedure is complete, it is recommended to immediately remove cement residue. For an accurate cleaning use a solution of water and buffering acid (following the manufacturer's instructions) and rinse with abundant water.
8)The footing installation with Hithick makes the floor carriageable at low traffic, safe and non-absorbent.
