Please note that samples of this product are available in store only.
Please note this product is a natural stone and therefore you will find colour and pattern variations in the tiles due to the way the product is made. We recommend laying out your tiles before fixing to ensure you get a good mix of shades across the area. For very large areas please ask our experts in store for further advice.
Most slate will vary in thickness. (This is an inherent property of slate and adds to the rustic look.) To obtain a finish with all the tiles at the same level the tiles will need to be examined and laying should begin with the thickest tile, the remainder tiles should then be brought up to the same level..
PREPARE: After grouting for an initial clean, use diluted residue remover for honed and polished stone. Allow the residue remover to sit on the tile at least 10 minutes to allow the grout residue to be broken down. The use of an emulsifying pad will aid with removal of grout residue. Sometimes, particularly on a textured surface, after using residue removers there is still some residue which may be due to the polymer within the grout. This needs to be softened with an alkaline detergent. Use Tile and Stone Stain Remover in the same way as the residue remover.
PROTECT: Use an unpolished protector, 2 coats are required. Apply with either a brush or a roller and allow each coat to dry thoroughly. A colour intensifier may be used after the initial coat if desired.
CLEAN: To prevent the build up of deposits it is important that the correct cleaner is used, to maintain the tiles we suggest Tile & Stone Cleaner diluted.
Acidic or highly Alkaline cleaners are not recommended for maintenance of this tile as they will damage the life of the sealer .
