LUCE, A SUPERIOR PRODUCT:
 

The translucid body of Luce is made with a very high purity of raw materials containing special and high quality clays and feldspars.

As the body is pure white, the ink development is more advanced than other products.

Luce has a lower kiln cycle and temperature than conventional porcelain products.

When illuminated, Luce’s special body gives a soft glow and really transforms the design from a plain tile to a soft natural marble.

 

INSTALLATION

HOW TO FIX THE SLABS:

1. DIRECTLY ON LED


We recommend this option only in the case of the installation of a single slab or a cut piece.

  • Fix the led strip lights on a white wall.
     
  • Keep a gap of 4-6 cm between the LED strips and the slab in order to avoid seeing the dots of the LED strip light through the slab.
     
  • Fix the slab on the perimeter of the frame of the niche

  • Use a transparent adhesive according to the specifications indicated in the technical data sheet of the chosen adhesive.
     
  • Do not spread the adhesive in the central area of the slab.
     
  • Fix a frame or profile on the perimeter of the slab (top, down, left and right at your choice), in order to secure the slab and to cover the shadows of the adhesive if visible.

2. ON A TRANSPARENT HARD SURFACE

(Glass, thick plexiglass or light box)


We recommend this option in case of the installation of multiple slabs or cut pieces in order to avoid bending or visible interruptions. We also recommend this option when you need to install a single slab in a more stable and secure way.

  • Fix the LED strip lights or the light box on a white wall.

  • If you chose the led strip option, fix the glass, or the Plexiglas surface at a minimum distance of 2-4 cm from the LED strip lights in order to avoid seeing the dots of the LED strip through the slab.

  • Deeply clean the glass, or the Plexiglas, or the light box surface before the application of the adhesive.
     
  • Use a transparent adhesive according to the specifications indicated in the technical data sheet of the chosen adhesive.
     
  • Evenly spread the adhesive on the back of the slab by using a spatula in order to get a homogeneous layer of adhesive. Do not use rolls or other tools in order not to have a visible layer of adhesive.
     
  • Fix a frame or profile on the perimeter of the slab (top, down, left and right at your choice), in order to secure the slabs.
