Soft Stone Installation
All surfaces should be suitably prepared to ensure they are level, clean, dry and free of dust, grease and any loose material. Failure to prepare surface and protect it from dirt, debris and water during application may affect adherence and performance of adhesive.
Soft Stone veneer panels can be applied over existing wall linings and building skins including brick, timber, concrete, cement sheeting, in addition to non combustible building substrates that protect and seal building exteriors.
Storage: Keep dry and free from the weather to ensure proper contact and adhesion.
Cutting: Small diamond cutting blade, scoring with a stanley knife. Cornerpieces can be mitred with course sand paper as an option.
Adhesion: We recommend MAPEI KERAFLEX MAXI S1. This is a high-performance tile adhesive, which is available directly from Melbourne Brick in White and Grey. For internal applications, Mapei offers a range of construction adhesives fit for purpose.
Grouting/silicon: Grouting the corner joints or sheet joints (optional) can be done with MAPEI KERACOLOR FF. Applying to small areas and cleaning as per manufacturer is recommended.
Waterproofing/sealing: It is recommended the Soft Stone product is coated with a weather proofing stone sealer once installed. This is a measure to aid against airborne grime.
It is the responsibility of the customer/builder/professional specifier to ensure that the products selected are
suitable, fit for the intended purpose, and used in accordance with the National Construction Code.
The wholesaler will not accept any responsibility for any products which fail to perform in an application for
which they were not suitable or did not satisfy a relevant requirement of the National Construction Code.
