Thickness of the layer should be around 2 mm. It is recommended to start from top of the wall and work your way to the bottom.

Pressing.

Press the flexible Elastolith brick slip to the freshly applied adhesive and leave 12-14 mm space between the brick slips. You must carefully press over its entire surface to the adhesive immediately after the application.

Grouting
