Important notes

All products within the ABSOLUT POLISHED from Argenta Ceramica have rectified edges and are recommended for residential use. Make sure the grouts and adhesives are adequate for this type of product.Protect the polished surface adequately during the installation process to avoid damage via contact of construction or abrasive materials on site. Use a white rubber mallet (avoid darker colour ones) to ensure the correct laying and levelling of the tiles. After grouting, wash the material with a damp sponge before the grout hardens.

Clean the tiles with the materials Argenta Cerámica recommends for these kinds of products. Final cleaning of the site must be performed with an organic stripper or degreaser or simply with neutral detergents.
