GUIDELINE

SGG FEELING is installed in the same way as ceramic tiles.
• It is designed exclusively for wall cladding in internal areas except for swimming pools and industrial areas.
• It is recommended that it is installed in front of a surface that is uniformly coloured (a light colour for light tiles).
• In a kitchen, the product must not be in direct contact with flames or sources of intense heat (oven, hotplate, very hot utensils).
• A slight difference in colour shade may occur if the tiles are exposed to a temperature higher than 50°C for a long period.
• Installation must be carried out in accordance with best practice and in compliance with regulations (in the UK BS 8000-11.1, BS 5385-1 and BS 5385-4).

Cutting and drilling
• Use diamond cutting tools that are suitable for glass: tile cutter, cutter disk, drills and hole cutter type tools.
• The tiles are cut on the glass face on a work surface which is clean and free from abrasive particles (glass) in order to reduce the risk of scratches.
• Drilling must be carried out with water cooling, either before or after installation.
• It is essential to smooth the cut edges (grinding stone).

Fixing
SGG FEELING can be fixed using adhesives and mortars suitable for wall installation and in particular*:
- Weber & Broutin: Fermaflex Technic, Fermaflex Record, Fermafix Plus
- Bal : Mosaic Fix, Single Part Flex, Wall White Star
- Mapei : Adesilex P24+, Kerabond+Isolastic
- Botament / Eurocol : please refer to the producer for exact references of the adhesives
• Epoxy resin based adhesives must not be used.
• In all cases it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

* the list of adhesives is not exhaustive (please contact SAINT-GOBAIN GLASS for more information).

In case of any doubt concerning the compatibility of the adhesive, please tests its reaction with the product.
• To obtain the optimum visual appearance:
- it is essential to apply an additional layer of adhesive to the reverse of the tile around the edges (buttering)
- place the tiles in position by pressing them together edge to edge and then slide them until the joints are obtained (2 mm minimum)
- use adhesive and grout of similar shades

Grouting
• There must be a grout of at least 2 mm between the tiles.
• Only use a grout for earthenware wall tiles (epoxy based grouts or quartz sand based grouts must not be used).
• Observe the adhesive drying times recommended by the manufacturer before grouting.
• Ensure the base of the joints is completely filled, for example using a grout bag.

Maintenance
• Clean using a clean, soft cloth (do not use abrasive pads) and a standard glass-cleaning product.
• Do not use agents with a high alkaline concentration (soda, potassium) or agents containing abrasive particles.
• Do not clean with a high-pressure water spray.

Storage
The tiles must be stored in covered, dry, frost-free areas.
