Laying of mosaic, tiles and panels on LUX ELEMENTS®- ELEMENT

The same material is generally always used for production; whether the client later applies large-sized tiles or mosaic. The later type of use must be taken into consideration by the architect or tiler during the planning phase, because it is then that a decision is made as to whether mosaic is possible or not. In case of horizontal application we recommend e.g. a size of at least 10 x 10 cm is used for wheelchairs or walking frames, due to the high pressure load resulting from such use. Mosaic can be used in conventional household applications, as our material absorbs a pressure load of at least 0.1 N/mm2.

We recommend the use of our COL products. For mosaic, marble and other materials, please contact us for information.
