The surface on which the brick slip is to be applied must be clean, dry, porous and strong. Brick slips may only be applied using the special accompanying Elastolith adhesive. The adhesive also shows the colour of the seam.
The special adhesive sticks to many different surfaces. Nevertheless, the use of a primer might be advisable in certain situations to guarantee a perfect, lasting bond.
Brick slips can be cut to size with scissors. As the product is so thin, pointing is unnecessary. Brick slips can be applied on a (slightly) rounded corner.
