The methods of application of Cemento non Cemento slabs are superimposable to those used for wooden “boiserie” and must be chosen according to the state of the wall to which they must adhere.
In the case of healthy walls, without moisture problems, which do not crumble, which allow a good adhesion, the Cemento non Cemento slabs can also be glued directly to the wall, possibly helped, to maintain the precise position until complete crosslinking of the adhesive, from some nail without head or pin, possibly also using a nail tool if properly calibrated in power to avoid dents in the surface.
In case of specific needs, for example in the presence of walls that exude humidity or very irregular and problematic walls,Cemento non Cemento slabs can be applied on supporting frames that allow the creation of ventilated walls. The frames can be made of any material that is considered suitable for the situation of the wall to which it must be applied, also evaluating the properties of reaction to fire where the installation is in a context that requires non-flammability specifications. For the anchoring of the slabs to the frame, since it is possible to grip the self-tapping screws, most of the common coupling systems of commercially available boiserie can be used.
An effective and economical method is to use common hanging bars, applying one on the back of the slab, using self-threading screws of consistent length so as not to pierce or dent the surface of the panel and better if helped by some Concreo Conclad Special glue Adhesive, and by hanging the slab by fitting the bar to another bar applied upside down to the wall. When choosing the length of the screws to be used, evaluate to penetrate the slab at a distance of at least 5 mm from the surface.
Finally, if Cemento non Cemento is in contact with wet or very damp floors, it is necessary that they remain detached from them and that the edges are waterproofed to avoid the formation of moisture stains.
