The size of mosaic tiles is generally 31cm×31cm, and there are also 30cm×30cm. The common specifications of mosaic tiles are 20×20mm, 25×25mm, 30×30mm, and the thickness is between 4mm-4.3mm.
The price range of mosaic tiles is very large, ranging from tens of yuan to thousands of yuan per square meter, mainly depending on the complexity of materials and splicing. Traditional ceramic mosaics are cheaper and suitable for large-scale paving; glass mosaics generally cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and are more used for decoration.
The laying process of mosaic tiles needs to pay attention to the following points:
1. Consider constructionthickness
The thickness of the mosaic itself varies, ranging from two millimeters to five millimeters. In addition, the thickness of mosaics and tiles is also different, so in order to make the wall as a whole flat, it is sometimes necessary to consider re-doing a leveling layer in a thinner area.
2. The construction joints should be evenly spaced
The gaps between the mosaics must be uniform, and the size of the gaps should be equal to the original gaps between the small mosaics, so that the entire wall is integrally formed, and it cannot be seen that it is made of a large piece. Block mosaic die collage.
3. Control the pace of construction
During the mosaic laying process, there may be phenomena such as slopping and slipping of the whole piece, which are generally caused by the failure to grasp the construction rhythm. A better way is to wait for the previous batch of cement to solidify slightly, and then paste the next batch on it, then the effect of paving will be more ideal.
4. Pointing with caulk
Now generally use caulking agent to pointing. Wipe it with wet white cement first, then use dry cement to let it solidify as soon as possible, and finally wipe it clean with a dry towel. The effect of the mosaic wall made in this way is more uniform, and the decorative effect is much stronger than that of the block material, because it cannot be seen. out construction joints.
