LAYOUT PATTERNS & CUTTING

Preparation of the area to be covered and the layout of the FINO Slate sheets is the same as for natural stone or tile.

Cutting straight lines and curves is best done using long nosed tin snips. Stone Art can also be cut with a metal shear, wet saw, or table saw with carbide blade.

SEALERS & ADHESIVES

It is best to pre-seal FINO Slate sheets prior to installation. This protects and seals the face from adhesives and grout during installation and handling. Stone Panel can be sealed with the same sealers used for slate, stone tiles, and wood.

All adhesives should be tested prior to any installation including consideration of moisture and temperature in the planned environment. If the application is outdoors, consideration to thermal expansion needs to be taken into account. Since Stone Art is a veneer it must expand and contract with the substrate or delamination may occur.

HAND ROLLERS / TROWELS

A hand roller is recommended to remove air between the FINO Slate and substrate. For best results of adhesive to substrate, a 3/16” notched trowel is recommended. Use a straight trowel for back-filling of voids. Any bumps in the back surface should be sanded flat prior to back-filling.

TILING, GROUTING & JOINING

FINO Slate can be used to create a tiled effect by leaving a grout joint between cut pieces. Sheets may also be butt-jointed for the look of a smaller seam. Due to the thin nature a 1/8” to ¼” grout joint will produce better results. Test show the use of water based epoxy and acrylic premixed grout work well to fill between the cut panels.

During the sponge-off process, the epoxy will seal the surface of the panels as well. These grouts are also available in several colors to match the existing décor.
