THE FOLLOWING STEPS MUST BE FOLLOWED COMPLETELY FOR THE GUARANTEE OF THE BATHROOM FITTINGS WITH 3M ADHESIVE TO BE VALID.
THE WALL WHERE THE ACCESSORY IS GOING TO BE PLACED MUST BE COMPLETELY SMOOTH: TILES, PORCELAIN, MARBLES, GRANITES, CRYSTALS, POLYESTER OR MELAMINE WOOD.
IT CANNOT BE USED ON NON-SMOOTH SURFACES: UNEVEN OR ROUGH TILES, SLATES, GRESITES, TILE JOINTS, PAINTED WALLS OR VARNISHED
THE STRAIGHT RAIL: is only for hanging towels and must not be leaned on as it cannot support additional weight. It can break if excessive force is used when removing towels.
If you have to remove the accessory once it is positioned on the wall, you must be very careful and use a trowel to lever between the accessory and the wall until it is completely removed. You may also use nylon thread. If there is something left on the wall, you can clean it with a cloth soaked with acetone.
Step 1 : First, clean the surface where the accessory is going to be placed with alcohol, either by itself or dissolved with water; and then, dry that surface with a clean cloth. Never use other liquid to clean the surface.
Step 2 : Mark the wall where you want to position the accessory measuring and centring precisely, using a level if necessary.
Step 3: Apply the (STICK 3M PRIMER 94) to the surface of the wall where the accessory is going to be positioned, pressing in the centre of the (STICK) until the liquid comes out and moistens the sponge of the (STICK). You must leave 4 to 5 minutes until the wall is totally dried before positioning the accessory. THE STICK IS NOT AN ADHESIVE, BUT A PRIMING TO PREPARE THE WALL.
THE ADHESIVE OF THE ACCESSORY CANNOT BE TOUCHED, OTHERWISE IT LOSES ITS ADHESIVENESS AND WILL FALL OFF. The liquid of the STICK does not stain the wall where it is placed; any rest which may be left must be cleaned with a cloth soaked in alcohol.
Step 4: Remove the backing paper from the adhesive taking care not to touch it with your fingers. If the aforementioned adhesive is touched it loses its adhesiveness and will fall off the wall.
Step 5: You must always heat the adhesive of the piece (once the red protector is removed) as well as the wall where the accessory is going to be placed with a “HAIR- DRYER”. It is suggested that the room temperature at the time of the placing of the bathroom fittings should be over 15º C.
Step 6: Evenly place the bathroom accessory in the spot you have previously marked in the wall, pressing hard with your fingers for 60 seconds making sure that the accessory bracket is completely stuck to the wall. If the accessory has got two brackets with adhesive (e.g. towel holders, sponge holders, shelves) we must press each of the brackets for 60 seconds. It may be useful to get a second person to help stick accessories with two brackets . ONCE THE ACCESSORY IS POSITIONED ON THE WALL, YOU SHOULDN’T TOUCHED IT OR PULLED OUT FROM IT TO CHECK THAT IT HAS BEEN STUCK SINCE, ALTHOUGH IT MAY BE NOT NOTICEABLE, WHEN TOUCHING IT THE ADHESIVE LOSES ALL ITS ADHESIVENESS AND WILL FINALLY FALL OFF.
The aforementioned accessory must be left for 72 hours without using it, pouring water or placing on weight so that it remains in perfect conditions
For accessories placed over 1.40 or 1.50 metres high from the floor (wall shelves, sponge holders, double hangers, single hangers, etc.) a stepladder and a second person must be used. If you attempt to stick an accessory at this height without assistance and a ladder the pressure applied will be insufficient to stick the accessory securely. It will fall off.
