Note when installing natural stone products:
We recommend that Artex Oy’s fastening products (X77 & X77S) be used in challenging applications such as saunas, outdoor applications, and in wet premises. Always use the same manufacturer’s solution and follow the provided mixing ratio exactly.
We recommend that Kivimestarin Kivi- ja Saumasuoja (Stone and Seam Protector) of the Aitokivi product family be used in wet premises such as saunas and bathrooms and in outdoor applications. The product is based on nanotechnology and contains silicon (Si) and water. The product creates a protective surface made of nanoparticles on top of the stone that is resistant to impurities.
Natural stone is made of minerals that can change their appearance due to changes in the surrounding conditions or if mounted using unsuitable products. Many stones contain iron that can be oxidized, leading to the appearance of rust on the surface of the stone. Please note! This happen mainly in wet premises and is a property of natural stone, not a defect. By following the importer’s instructions, changes in the appearance of the stone can be minimized.
