Apply adhesive to primed concrete or timber surface.
Using a notched trowel spread out the adhesive evenly.
Butter the back of each piece of stone with adhesive.
Leave adhesive to dry naturally. DO NOT force dry.
DO NOT cover stone. Covering slows curing and prevents the stone breathing.
Useful tools: Notched trowel, mixing trowel,mixing drill, adhesive whisk, bucket, sponge, electric wet cutter with diamond disc, grout float, 2mm spacers.
Dilute LTP Grimex 1:10 with water.
Apply to the surface and gently agitate using a mildly abrasive pad.
