Easy and immediate to install, Tincastro tile can be placed on any kind of hard surface with little or no preparation, these systems will improve the quality of the poor, wornand moisture we athered flooring, as long as they are properly levelled. Our flooring system is applied as a floating floor on the existing flooring via an exclusive joint mechanisms which makes it very easy to install.
No particular tools are necessary: only a wooden or rubber hammer, a hacksaw and a striping tool will be used for the installation. It is advisable to start laying the floor starting from the center of the area moving outwards, following a circular trajectory.
For laying in areas with minimal temperature variations, it is advisable to leave a 5 mm gap between the tiles and the fixed point (such as well and/or machinery) in order to allow the tiles to expand and retract freely. In area with high temperature changes and in area in direct sunlight or characterized by hight temperature, we suggest using an adhesive.
The resistant surface of Tincastro is easy and fast to clean and it is particurarly suitable to be cleaned with nebulizer or rough sponges.
After the installation, in order of improve and mantain the look of the flooring, we suggest treatment with metal waxes. Do not clean the surface with solvents such as turpentine, acetone ect.
The prolonged stop of tyres can cause the formation of dark indelible stains on the floor; therefore in the areas affected by this problem (car showrooms) it is necessary to treat the floor in advance, and to continue the treatment with the specific latest generation waxes which guarantee a safe barrier against the transferof plasticizers and anti aging materials contained in the tyres compound.
