How To Install Coconut Tile and Teak Mosaic Tile
Teak mosaic tile and coconut tile are natural wood or fiber panels and they are suitable for use in indoor environments. They can be applied a feature walls, ceilings, furniture panels, back splashes and the teak tiles can even be used as light traffic flooring.
Here is the installation guide to apply the panels:
1. Open the boxes for 24 hours before installation to let the tiles adapt to the installation temperature.
Prepare the tools and equipments. The glue that you need is silicon sealant for use in glass, windows, ceramics etc. We recommend Dow Corning sealant.
2. Clean up the walls and ceilings that you want the panels to be applied.
3. Apply the silicone glue on the panel’s back-side surface, to form in 8 x 8 even grids.
4. Paste panel onto the wall and press it for 5 seconds to make sure the panel’s backside is flatten against the wall. For the next panel, make sure that its position is well aligned with the previous ones. You may give a spacing gap of 3 mm between the tile for grout (if you don’t use grout, you leave the spacing gaps to 1-2 mm).
When done, use grout to fill up the spacing gaps (you can use sealant if you choose spacing gaps of 1-2 mm). And remove unnecessary overflows by damped clothes.
Towards the end of walls, if coconut panels are too big and need to be cut, tear along a glued joint, and then use a grinder to shorten further to the desired size.
Note: Our coconut tile and teak mosaic tile panels are 100% natural, and all processes are made by hand. No two panels are identical. The variation from panel to panel should not be considered as defects; rather it amplifies the true nature of the world we live in.
Panels are easy to maintain.
Clean regularly with a mop or by vacuum cleaner.
When necessary to wash, washing should be performed with damp cloth, or using a neutral detergent diluted with water.
Panels are easy to store.
The products should be stored in a horizontal position, stacked to a maximum of ten boxes.
Must be stored in dry environments, airy and preferably on pallet.
