Travertine is reportedly one of the most popular natural materials for interior and exterior decoration projects. Besides being a unique material with its undefined pattern or the porous structure, travertine is also available in a wide range of shades. Moreover, travertine is a natural stone that reinvents itself to be able to adapt to the new design and architectural concepts, totally integrating with any design style approached.
Peach Travertine is a daring material, amazing due its fire-like shade, highlighted by its porous surface and amazing texture. Peach Splitface Travertine, 5 cm width, 2 cm thick and free lengths is an ideal material for natural and simple settings, both interior and exterior. This material is highlighted by a raw beauty resulted from the splitface finish - the cutting process of stone tiles by striking edges with a hammer-type device.
This type of travertine can be used for interior and exterior claddings – from the walls of a beautiful kitchen, the living room and even the fireplace. For exteriors we recommend using the tiles for cladding the facade of building, fence or the home base.
Tips for installation:
This is as important as choosing the stone best suited to your decoration project
We recommend using the Weber Set Marmo Plus adhesive for fixing the tiles, a fast setting solution also suitable for the exterior;
For exterior cladding we recommend Weber GR 100 primer, together with the adhesive, this way the assembly will be much stronger
The surface must be 100 % covered with adhesive for a very good fixing
The underlay could be: concrete / thermos system / drywall
For projects up to 3 m high, install the product directly over thermo system
For projects over 3 m high, it is compulsory to use welded wire mesh and several dowels for fixing the thermo system
If you want to install over the drywall, it is compulsory to use post rabitz
Weber Color Perfect grout joints will be applied after tiles installation for highlighting the natural stone; you have 30 shades to choose from
For a correct installation we recommend hiring an expert in natural stone installation
Tips for natural stone aftercare
Travertine is a hard and durable stone, yet for an extended lifetime you should keep in mind 3 steps: cleaning, sealing and aftercare
Even when installed on the exterior, travertine has to be cleaned after installation and before being sealed with LTP Grimex
We recommend sealing the surface with LTP Mattstone; for enhancing the color of natural stone without having a “just washed look” use LTP Colour Intensifier
This procedure seals the micro pores, preventing the penetration of water into the fabric, so the stone will not stain so easily
For cleaning and aftercare following the installation you can use LTP Waxwash cleaner that will not influence the sealed surface
For difficult stains, use LTP Power Stripper and for dust stains used LTP Grout Stain Remover
