PORCELAIN OUTDOOR TILES

Installation Guide of Outdoor Porcelain Paving Tile

Our 20mm Porcelain tiles are an alternative to traditional paving stone. With rectified sides and corners the Porcelain can be installed quickly and precisely. It comes with numerous advantages such as anti-slip, non-porous, easy to maintain and does not suffer from any UV light fading. Because it is stain resistant, sealers are not required.

Installation
As with natural stone paving, a well compacted layer of hardcore is needed, unless the Porcelain tile is going directly onto concrete. We would recommend a full bed of mortar (sand/cement mix) to lay the Porcelain tiles on.

If your Porcelain tile is going onto a concrete base, we would recommend using Botament Multistone Adhesive.  In conjunction with this you should also use the Botament D11 Primer for the underside of the Porcelain tile.

Cutting
All cutting of the Porcelain tiles should be done with a diamond tipped blade. Cutting is more difficult with Porcelain than natural stone but with the right equipment/tools and patience you can carry this out.  

Jointing

To joint the Porcelain tile we would recommend Ultrascape Flowpoint Smooth grout or Botament Multifuge grout. Ultrascape Flowpoint Smooth grout is a neutral colour and is ideal for 3-15mm joints. Botament Multifuge grout is a high performance indoor/outdoor tile grout available in colours Sand Grey (no.15) & Concrete Grey (no.20).  

 

Please note the following:

Advisable to create gradients during levelling/compacting to ensure optimal drainage of the floor

Advisable to lay the tiles with a minimum joint of 3mm.

Advisable if laying in staggered format use 1/3 offset pattern instead of a ½ offset pattern.

Any query on any of the above, please ask our sales team.
