Check subsurface for load-bearing capacity, remove the separating layers, check suction performance. If required, free from dust, premoisten and prime.
All ELEMENT construction panels must be stored lying down straight in a dry place. If an ELEMENT construction panel should be slightly warped due to improper storage or other reasons, they can usually be straightened by light bending and pressing.
Before applying the adhesive in dots, pre-pierce the holes for the dowels with a cross slot screwdriver.
Cuts and notches are made quickly and easily with the jig saw or a cutter knife.
Depending on the evenness of the subsurface, apply the fixing adhesive COL-AK pointwise on one side using clots of adhesive (6 – 8 pcs. per m2).
If ELEMENT-EL Baby 4 is used, always apply the fixing adhesive COL-AK over the full surface using a toothed trowel. This technique is also possible for thicker panels, depending on the substrate.
Apply the fixing adhesive COL-AK to the edges of the ELEMENT construction panels, thus bonding the individual elements together.
We recommend horizontal placing for ELEMENT. Draw alignment markings before application, if possible. Then press on the ELEMENT with the level and spirit level and check not only the individual but also the reciprocal vertical ...
... and horizontal alignment of the ELEMENT construction panels.

All element joints must be reinforced with glass fibre reinforcement strips ARM-100 SK.
Level out the reinforced element joints and the heads of the hammer fix plugs with COL-AK.
The surface is now ready for tiling. Further requirements (e.g. sealing for wet loads) must be taken into consideration in accordance with national directives.
