Many are interested in the possibility of sticking to the ceiling tiles in the whitewashed ceiling, can we do it?The unequivocal answer to this question does not exist, as the glue to whitewash the ceiling tile can only under certain conditions.(See. Potlochnaya Seamless tile) once it is possible to mention that we will focus on the ceiling whitewashed with lime mortar, not a paint.
methods sticking ceiling tiles
First of all, let's understand how the very process of gluing ceiling tiles.When applying any adhesive on the tile and pressed it to the ceiling adhesive dries slowly and the process of adhesion or bonding.That is, when the glue there is an interaction of heterogeneous (solid and liquid) bodies at the molecular level (see. How to wash whitewash from the ceiling?).
If a solid body is not strong enough it can happen cohesion process or separation of the molecular layer due to compression of the curable adhesive that is frozen
Council.Tiles on the ceiling whitewash izvёstkoy convenient glued only adhesives that do not have a water base.(See. How to clean the ceiling tile from the whitewashed?) Water-based macerates izvёstku, and tile, and it eliminates the need to adhere to for a long time until the glue dries.
What whitewash for sticking tiles?
- First of all, to understand how pokleit ceiling tile on the whitewash, you should understand that in this very dried mortar and will stay glued tiles .That is, in order to to whitewash anything kept - should hold itself whitewashing .
- Whitewashing will not be held on the ceiling in the event that over time accumulated several layers of lime, and a reservoir necessarily fall off from the concrete slab.Status whitewash easily check hard spatula - just scratched him ceiling in suspicious places, that is, where there are hairline cracks, bumps or chips.
- ceiling is also unsuitable for gluing tiles, if carried out frozen lime whitewash.In this case, a dried mortar will crumble like dust pritrushenny.It is only natural that the curable adhesive is not zone setting and tiles will disappear.
- If lime is applied to the surface of the plate netolstym layer, and it does not crumble, it is still before the assembly should be washed, as the glue to whitewash the ceiling tile can only be the case if the whitewash with a monolithic concrete slab.
- Make sure that the ceiling lime well kept, and this places a spatula scrape suspicious.If the layer is beginning to fall behind - take it off before the volume until the spatula can not be his hook.Also check whitewash hand - during her hand on the ceiling should not be lime (if remains - need to remove the entire layer).
- ceiling should first sweep with a broom or brush, then wash with a wet cloth.Some suggest doing this in stages, ie, stick one tile, and then wipe the ceiling for sticking the next, but, first, it is not aesthetically pleasing, and secondly, the whole ceiling to be priming after washing.
- Once the ceiling is dry after washing, apply a coat of primer on it and let it dry again.
- Now to ceiling tiles in the whitewash is flat, seam weld, you have to mark the ceiling and it can be done by using a metric tape measure and choklayna (paint line) .First, determine where you will place the average number of tiles and it needs to carry out simple mathematical calculations.
- Count how many tiles as many as will fit in a single row, and the rest of the distance, divide by two and you get the width at the tiles.The layout is better to start from the middle of the ceiling.If you got an even number of tiles, the ceiling will fall on The middle joint of tiles.If an odd number - the center of the tile.
- Since the indicative line should be carried out along the seam, in the case of an odd number, move the reference point on the edge of the middle tile and repel choklaynom line across the entire ceiling.Exactly the same procedure to perform the transverse side of the ceiling.
- tile usually has 50 × 50cm, so every meter repel control lines and all seams are obtained smooth, since the extruded and stamped tiles geometric proportions are usually violated.
- Fixing tiles to the ceiling
- After you have marked out the entire ceiling, you can start the installation as ceiling tiles stick to whitewash can be exactly the same as inany other suitable substrate.
- better start from the middle of the ceiling of the control line, and if the start does not contain the whole tiles, then start with a piece of the desired size.Ceiling tiles of any kind can be easily cut with a knife construction.
- tiles should be pressed against a sponge or cloth, so as not to dirty his hands as traces remain even if wear gloves, as gloves do you also certainly smudge.
- Clay should not be applied across the tile, and the dot, if any, on the edge, since there are so subtle patterns that will educate and cured, the material will be seen through the surface.The edges have thin tiles are usually rounded and slightly thicker, so the glue will not be noticeable.
- adhered extruded and injection tiles are gaps between the panels due to violation of the geometric proportions of the products.These cracks easily removed with a solution of a rare finish putty, striking her in the finger joint.
- For gluing foam skirting boards is also better to use putty finish, not glue, as between tiles and profile relief necessarily remain gaps that are easily sealed with satengipsom.
Council.After all installation is often the question arises as to whitewash the ceiling tile, if it relief?Yes, indeed, paint roller can not do this, and there are only two reliable way - is spray paint it, and then have to wash the whole room, or use a soft maklavitsu whitewash.
course, installation of ceiling tiles in the lime can not be called high-quality repair European level, but then the material is also not the best.And if you take this into account, we can say that sticking to whitewash the ceiling tiles can be quite a decent option repair ceilings in your home.
