Filling joints

stamping is the construction phase in which the technical work is completed and we go to the protection and maintenance stage

WARNING: another is “do not leave a joint” and another “we do not stick”! the stamping is technically necessary and is not an aesthetic choice but a necessary work on any type of tile
leave a joint up to 1 – 2 mm on the tile, because if a wider joint is left, there is a risk that the pattern may be disturbed and perhaps we may have damage to the edges of the tile, while leaving as much vacuum as possible to penetrate the mortar as deeply as possible
select tile tiles uncolored white or light gray
under no circumstances we place in ariary (sparse white cement paste)
if the tiles are lining a wall that is not in a humid place and does not come in contact with water we can leave it in the dark
if you want to stock with colored stucco we have to apply just a layer of light water-soluble grout release,
leaving expansion joints where required if the floor is of a large surface because there is a risk of tile cracking
thoroughly clean the joints before applying the mortar to prevent entrapment of deposited materials and no mortar entering the joints locally
spread the stucco with a rubber spatula and press thoroughly so that the wicks are well filled
clean the tiles continuously to keep the putty from getting wet while it is still fresh
leave at least 3 days the joint to dry and thoroughly clean the tiles with successive mops
