Yes, of course. If one does not use the grooved Tycroc FX building board, the grooves can be cut to build rounded surfaces. Additional grooves may also be cut to the grooved board to achieve smaller radius. The best way to cut grooves is either by plaster knife or circular saw.
"IF ADHESIVE SEALANT HAS BEEN APPLIED TO THE GAPS, FASTENING WASHERS AND CORNERS, HOW LONG SHOULD IT DRY AND WHEN CAN THE TILING BEGIN?"
The adhesive sealant needs 24 hours to dry completely, but tiling can be started immediately for the tile adhesive does not prevent the further drying of the sealant or change its adhesive properties. There may anyhow be some minutes between finishing one stage of work and starting another and this time is sufficient for the sealant to develop a film. The sealant is immediately fully water- and moisture resistant.
"WHEN THE STRUCTURE OF THE HOUSE MOVES, HOW DO THE GAPS AND CORNERS INSULATED BY TYCROC PREMIUM FIX ADHESIVE SEALANT BEHAVE?"
As our adhesive sealant is very elastic (1MPa) and extends up to 250% by breaking, normal sinking and movement of the structure do not jeopardize the water-tightness of the gaps and corners. One advantage of the sealant is its elasticity and suitability for buildings with wooden framework.
"HOW ARE TYCROC BUILDING BOARDS PACKED, HOW CAN THEY BE TRANSPORTED?"
