The construction process
The construction of cultural stone is very different from ordinary wall construction.
1. Clean the metope and make a rough surface, such as plastic wood, such as low water absorption smooth surface, must spread razor wire, and make a rough surface, fully maintain and then spread the paste.
2. Before sticking to the rock, make sure that the rock is arranged on the flat surface to match the best effect. After the best effect, the rock should be placed in the order of the arrangement, and the rocks of similar size, shape and color are not adjacent to each other.
More than 3, 425 white cement, Portland cement (the proportion of cement, sand, 801 glue for 1:2:0. 05), ceramic bonding agent (please note that the bonding agent instructions) both high performance special adhesive could be used as bonding agent.
Four, fully rock will be wet, in the middle of the rock at the bottom of the daub binder to pile up in the mountain shape (stick archaize brick brick can be coated thin layer at the bottom of the bonding agent) such as large area carelessly flyblown surface should be used after wash immediately with a brush.
5. Stick the corner first. Press sufficiently to make the rock around to see the adhesive extrusion (some products do not need to be turned).
6. If the construction needs, the rock can be cut to adjust.
7. Fill in the gap with plastic bag, pay attention to the depth, the deeper the gap the better the stereo effect.
Eight, caulking agent after the initial setting, use bamboo to remove redundant joint sealant, such as use touch water surface of the brush to repair cracks, such as accidentally rock surface with a small amount of caulking agent or adhesive, after being its dry, use a brush to remove. For the better. Some products need not be sewn.
Nine, rock used in outdoor, the shop is stuck, after being completely dry products and caulking agent can be protective coating protective agent processing (can be waterproof, antifreeze, resist ultraviolet ray, prevent FanJian, etc).
10. The required treatment of the seam is to deal with (1) random rock - the smallest gap is around 10mm, and the difference in the size of the shape is adjusted by filling.
