Porcelain Paving

Introduction

  • Manufactured from the finest raw materials, under strict controls allows us to obtain the exceptional technical characteristics of full-body unglazed porcelain paving.
  • Anti slip surface resistance.
  • Mode Textured = Class 3 / R12/ Group C.
  • Mode profiled and Aspero = Class 2 / R11 / Group B.
  • All other porcelain paving = Class 3 / R11 / Group C.
  • We recommend Bradstone jointing compound for pointing link to jointing compound.
  • Do not use white cement nor materials containing black pigments.
  • Finishes are intentionally manufactured with slightly uneven colour tones and surface decoration, these subtle variations set these products apart for a more authentic look.
  • The use of slurry primer to the reverse of each paver is essential to the overall performance of Bradstone porcelain paving and for this we recommend link to Bradstone Bradbond.
  • Applied to the underside using a stiff brush, it provides an exceptional bond between paver and the full wet bed underneath. Mixed to the manufacturer's instructions and applied with care it forms an immediate bond which prevents the pavers from lifting or potentially moving in the future when correctly laid.

Cutting

  • Our Porcelain Paving can be cut on site and mostly to any size required.
  • With a hand held saw fitted with a power cut off facility and a good quality diamond blade suitable for porcelain pavers, they can be cut on site and mostly to any size.
  • Ensure the blade is water fed to reduce dust, then score the product on low power and finally wet it and cut through.
  • Scoring the product first and sawing from the face downwards will help to alleviate the potential risk of edge/surface chipping.

Cleaning

  • Bradstone porcelain paving can easily be cleaned by applying a suitable cleaner. We recommend the finished laid area be thoroughly cleaned/washed down to help remove any dirt, grout, residue and grease deposits that may be present. Periodic cleaning with a porcelain cleaner will also help to keep the paving looking its best.
  • There are a wide range of cleaners available and the most suitable is dependent on the type of stain/surface residue present. We recommend seeking specialist advice but do check the manufacturer's instructions first before applying to any test area. Visit www.unitedstonecare.com for more info.
