Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Is IZOFLEX a safe, tested product?
YES,we have ITB TECHNICAL APPROVAL, HYGIENE ATTESTATION AND FIRE CLASSIFICATION (A2). All necessary documents are available in the DOWNLOAD section
2. Can the IZOFLEX tile be glued to horizontal surfaces such as a terrace?
No, the bick slips are not abrasion resistant, so you should not walk on it. In addition, the horizontal brick slips will get dirty faster.
3. How to clean dirty brick slips?
The best solution is water cleaning, eg pressure washer.
4. Do brick slips change color, eg under the influence of the sun?
No, the slips are UV-resistant, the color is preserved. However, the slip can be soiled as any other façade material by rain, mud plinths, etc. It is possible to clean the façade by pressure.
5. Are the brick slips in the winter falling off?
Our slips are the tested facade material and this means that it can be used at low temperatures such as acrylic plasters. If the façade has been well prepared before placing the slips, ie it is not moist, nothing will happen with slips. Even if it turns out that under the slips is water, then after the freeze the slip breaks point due to its elasticity. The whole panel will not fall off, as in the case of rigid slips such as clinker.
6. Are brick slips water resistant?
Yes, water does not damage the slips. The slip itself is suitable for facade materials, but the sdhesive, which is also fugue, is waterproof and frost-resistant. An important element of the installation is the accurate spreading of the adhesive between the slips so that the adhesive gently slides onto the edges of the slips thoroughly protecting the edges from the influence of water under the slip. If the water gets under the slip, winter will freeze and the slip will break.
7. Can the slips be used by the fireplaces?
Of course, not directly near fire. We can cover both chimneys and fireplaces.
8. Are the brick slips resistant to mechanical damage?
Due to its elasticity, the slip is less prone to mechanical damage but is not indestructible. The tiles are made of uniformly colored mass so that after the damage of the top layer does not change color.
9. During installation, the corner breaks or the slips are "in contact". What to do with this?
Every customer who orders corner slips also gets a free gift box with complementary mass in corner colors. This mass is used to mask any cracks or breaks that occur at the corner when the slips are joined without bending or contact. After drying the color is like a slip, and after cracks or joining there is no trace.
10. In what form are the slips sold? Are sold in linear meters? Do I have to cut myself?
The slips are sold on square meters of installation packed in boxes of 1 m2 or 5 m2. The slips are already cut to the right size. On our website we provide information on how many slips of the exact width are included in 1 m2. Many customers prefer to count pieces instead of meters. We then round to full meters “up” so that the customer does not run out of slips.
For example, the customer requested 350 pieces of 52 mm wide slips. We know that there are 66 pieces of slips per width (here: 52 mm), so counting 350 pieces / 66 pieces = 5.3 m2. The customer will get 6 m2 of slips.
11. On what surface can the slips be glued?
Virtually on any one that is dry and not impatient. Some surfaces, slippery, well matted and, if necessary, primed with Izoflex-Grunt. Slips are good for eg polystyrene (previously grid and adhesive), regip, OSB, etc.
12. Are the slips suitable for the kitchen?
The slips have a rough surface (similar to acrylic plaster). In the kitchen are exposed, among others. for fat etc. Such substances are hard to wash off. Often customers buy our slips (eg white) and either paint them in any color slippery, easily washable with acrylic paint or a colorless fleece, or put them behind the glass.
