How Are Brickslips Made?

We pride ourselves on offering our customers the best product and service possible. This is the precise reason we only offer brick slips made from genuine clay bricks! Alternatively, we could offer brick slips made from cheaper material such as acrylic. However, acrylic brick slips do not offer the same genuine brick wall feeling you get from clay brick slips. To make our brickslips we cut the two faces off of a real brick. This then leaves you with your two slips. No two bricks are the same nor are two of our slips. Furthermore our brick slips are handmade. This helps to keep them from all becoming uniform which takes away from the real brick wall illusion.

Can I Install Brick Slips Myself?

Installing brick slips is far from rocket science. If you follow our installation guide to a tee, I am confident that you will be able to install the your brickslips yourself. The key to it is the preparation and knowing your limits. It’s of paramount importance that your surface is dry and clear of any debris before you begin installing. This gives your adhesive a good surface to work with. It also eliminates the risk of your slips falling off the wall. In terms of knowing your limits, the adhesive we supply is rapid setting. This means if you prepare too much at once, you risk it setting before you even get the chance to use it to apply your brickslips to your wall. As long as you take your time with the whole process, I am sure you’ll find installing your brickslips to be a walk in the park!

Is Brick Slip Aftercare Necessary?

Of course, you are free to decide whether or not you want to provide your brickslips with any aftercare at all. However, we would highly recommend it especially in areas that will experience high traffic. This includes areas such as your kitchen, bathroom and external projects. One of the great things about brick slips is how long lasting they are, but if you choose not to provide them with proper aftercare then you may find they don’t last as long as you’d like. Unfortunately, brick slips are not immune to attract dust and dirt and if you leave your slips unsealed these can be quite difficult to clean off. Especially on slips such as our Euphoria as if you allow too much dust to gather you may find yourself brushing away some of the gold dust that is part of the character of the brick.

Brick Slips Sealer

The most important part of your brick slip aftercare is to seal your brick slips. Before sealing your slips, it’s very important that you’ve given the adhesive and mortar time to cure. As our brickslips are made from genuine clay you will also need to give any salt time to present itself. If you do not give them time before sealing, you may be left with stains and salt ‘locked’ into the surface of your brick once you have sealed them. Once you’re sure your brick slips are looking exactly how you want them to feel free to seal them. For this, we recommend our USP-100 brick slip sealerthat is supplied courtesy of TBS Cladding Solutions. It’s the market leader in terms of brick slip aftercare. This sealer resists moss and lichen as well as preventing surface deterioration due to repeated freeze/thaw cycles making it perfect for exterior projects!

Do I Need To Use Mortar On My Brick Slips?

Although we would definitely recommend it, using pointing mortar on your brick slips isn’t absolutely necessary. However, It definitely adds to the illusion if you are trying to give off the impression of a real brick wall. Mortar is used in building projects using real bricks as an adhesive to hold the bricks together. When you are installing brick slips, you have already stuck your slips to the wall meaning the pointing mortar is being used for aesthetics. We have seen some great projects completed without the use of mortar. So if you feel like ditching the mortar for your next project, go for it. We’d love to see the finished results so please don’t forget to send them in!

Is Brick Slip Mortar The Same As Grout?

You would be forgiven for thinking that brick slip pointing mortar is the same as grout. After all, once the mortar has been applied and dried, the appearance is indistinguishable from that of tile grout. However, it is very important that you don’t treat the mortar as grout. If you try and apply the mortar in the same way you apply grout you will ruin your brick slips. Grout is a highly viscous substance compared to mortar which is significantly thicker. Because of this if you spread mortar over your brick slips in the same way you would with your tiles it will leave nasty stains on your brick slips that can be quite difficult to remove. As brick slips are often referred to as brick tiles you may hear the mortar be referred to as grout. However, it is absolutely imperative that you know the difference!

How Do I Use SlipFix?

Pour half of the bag of SlipFix adhesive into a mixing bucket. Then slowly add approximately two and a half litres of cold clean water making to sure to mix periodically. You should continue to mix until you have a smooth and consistent mixture. It is recommended that you use a a mixing paddle attachment in order to achieve this easily. This should take around three minutes however you can take as much time as you need. Once the SlipFix adhesive is ready, spread it over a small area of your wall. From here, you take your slip and press firmly and evenly into the adhesive. Our SlipFix adhesive is rapid setting. Meaning it will need to be applied within 25 minutes so ensure you only mix what you will be able to apply within this time frame.

Is SlipFix Adhesive Suitable For Me?

As it is a cement based adhesive, SlipFix is suitable to be used on most projects. The cement base also makes it cheaper per square meter than most other alternatives. For most people, cement based adhesives are the way to go however, this is not always the case. If you are installing slips to a non-porous surface you are probably better off using an epoxy based adhesive. This is opposed to a cement based adhesive. This is because, cement based adhesives rely on small irregularities and pores on the surface and use these to form a strong bond.  Non-porous surfaces such as porcelain present a closed smooth surface where the bonding effect may be difficult.

Things To Consider Before Using SlipFix Adhesive

Before you start to use your SlipFix adhesive there are a few things you’ll want to make sure of first. First you’ll want to make the surface you want to apply your SlipFix adhesive too, is dry, clean and in suitable condition to apply adhesive to (.i.e. not falling apart). If you don’t check for these things, you risk your slips ‘floating’ down the wall. Whilst watching brick slips ‘float’ may sound like fun, I can assure you it is not. In fact, after spending time and money to create your perfect brick slip project, seeing your brick slips ‘float’ down your wall is the last thing you’ll want to see. So make sure you use your SlipFix adhesive correctly!

Brick Slips And Their Terminology

When buying brick slips online it can be a somewhat confusing process and that is due to brick slips really only just taking off in recent times and becoming a staple for interior design, due to this, there are many terms used to describe brick slips so when buying brick slips online its important to understand the terminology and variables to look at when it comes to brick slips, below is a breakdown of some of the alternative names for brick slips and what to look out for to make sure your getting the desired product when you choose to buy brick slips online.

Brick SlipsBrick Slips is the most widely known term and it is exactly that a brick slip which can be one of a few things, with us it is a product create by cutting a 20mm slither from the face of a brick so you get the brick colour, texture and size but only 20mm thick so you can then apply this to your desired surface without loosing too much space but having a completely authentic brick finish. Generally across the web brick slips are all the same although some may be casted which means rather then be cut from an actual brick, they may be

Brick Tiles – Again this can mean brick slips genuinely though when the word tile is involved it would suggest a ceramic or porcelain finish or structure if you will, however more and more companies are labelling brick slips as brick tiles as tiles is a more commonly known term so we may refer to our product as both brick slips and brick tiles. The key element to look out for if you want a true brick finish is to check what material they are made from and their size. A brick slips should measure around 215mm x 65mm and are made from clay. If it is made from porcelain or ceramic and are under 14mm thick it is simply a tile that has had a brick design printed on it and will be lacking both texture and authenticity so do check this out when viewing brick tiles.

Brick Effect Tiles – Very similar top the above but one that will be found option, brick effect tiles is a term used to advise you that the product you are buying has a brick effect finish. The same rule as above applies with this term. We may refer to our brick slips as brick effect tiles and in our case that is a cut brick effect tile cut from an actual brick with no repeating design. On other sites, if it is offered with the same name but the material is porcelain or ceramic and the measurements won’t match that off a brick which is 215mm x 65mm. So when you opt to buy brick effect tiles online, just check the material to stay safe and ensure your selecting the best product 🙂 if you need any other advise regarding brick effect tiles you can always speak to us on live chat.

Brick Veneer – This is a more modern term that is being used more and more often, Brick veneer is probably the most direct explanation of the product. A veneer being a thin slice of something. In our case Brick Veneer is a thin slice of brick used to decorate either and internal or external wall. Our range of brick veneer stretches across over 30 products with many variations with thicknesses ranging from 14mm – 21mm and colours from red to grey and everything in between. When looking to buy brick veneer online. We believe we are the best option as we are the direct importers of the brick that veneer is created from.

How Are Brick slips Made?

Our Brick Slips, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the best product and service possible. This is the precise reason we only offer brick slips made from genuine clay bricks! Alternatively, we could offer brick tiles made from cheaper material such as acrylic. However, acrylic brick slips do not offer the same genuine brick wall feeling you get from our clay brick tiles. To make our brick slips we cut the two faces off of a real brick. This then leaves you with your two slips. No two bricks are the same nor are two of our slips. Furthermore our brick slips are handmade. This helps to keep them from all becoming uniform which takes away from the real brick wall illusion.

Can I Install Brick Slips Myself?

Installing brick slips is far from rocket science. If you follow our installation guide to a tee, we are confident that you will be able to install the your brick slips yourself. The key to it is the preparation and knowing your limits. It’s of paramount importance that your surface is dry and clear of any debris before you begin installing brick tiles. This gives your adhesive a good surface to work with. It also eliminates the risk of your slips falling off the wall. In terms of knowing your limits, the adhesive we supply is rapid setting. This means if you prepare too much at once, you risk it setting before you even get the chance to use it to apply your brick tiles to your wall. As long as you take your time with the whole process, I am sure you’ll find installing your brickslips to be a walk in the park!

Is Brick Slip Aftercare Necessary?

Of course, you are free to decide whether or not you want to provide your brickslips with any aftercare at all. However, we would highly recommend it especially in areas that will experience high traffic. This includes areas such as your kitchen, bathroom and external projects. One of the great things about brick slips is how long lasting they are, but if you choose not to provide them with proper aftercare then you may find they don’t last as long as you’d like. Unfortunately, brick slip and brick tiles are not immune to attract dust and dirt and if you leave your slips unsealed these can be quite difficult to clean off. Especially on brick slips such as our Euphoria as if you allow too much dust to gather you may find yourself brushing away some of the gold dust that is part of the character of the brick.

Brick Slips Sealer

The most important part of your brick slip aftercare is to seal your brick slips. Before sealing your slips, it’s very important that you’ve given the adhesive and mortar time to cure. As our brickslips are made from genuine clay you will also need to give any salt time to present itself. If you do not give them time before sealing, you may be left with stains and salt ‘locked’ into the surface of your brick once you have sealed them. Once you’re sure your brick tiles are looking exactly how you want them to feel free to seal them.

Do I Need To Use Mortar On My Brick Slips?

Although we would definitely recommend it, using pointing mortar on your brick slips isn’t absolutely necessary. However, It definitely adds to the illusion if you are trying to give off the impression of a real brick wall. Mortar is used in building projects using real bricks as an adhesive to hold the bricks together. When you are installing brick tiles, you have already stuck your slips to the wall meaning the pointing mortar is being used for aesthetics. We have seen some great projects completed without the use of mortar. So if you feel like ditching the mortar for your next project, go for it. We’d love to see the finished results so please don’t forget to send them in!

Is Brick Slip Mortar The Same As Grout?

You would be forgiven for thinking that brick slip pointing mortar is the same as grout. After all, once the mortar has been applied and dried, the appearance is indistinguishable from that of tile grout. However, it is very important that you don’t treat the mortar as grout. If you try and apply the mortar in the same way you apply grout you will ruin your brick slips. Grout is a highly viscous substance compared to mortar which is significantly thicker. Because of this if you spread mortar over your brick slips in the same way you would with your tiles it will leave nasty stains on your brick tiles that can be quite difficult to remove. As brick slips are often referred to as brick tiles you may hear the mortar be referred to as grout. However, it is absolutely imperative that you know the difference!

How Do I Use SlipFix?

Pour half of the bag of SlipFix adhesive into a mixing bucket. Then slowly add approximately two and a half litres of cold clean water making to sure to mix periodically. You should continue to mix until you have a smooth and consistent mixture. It is recommended that you use a a mixing paddle attachment in order to achieve this easily. This should take around three minutes however you can take as much time as you need. Once the SlipFix adhesive is ready, spread it over a small area of your wall. From here, you take your slip and press firmly and evenly into the adhesive. Our SlipFix adhesive is rapid setting. Meaning it will need to be applied within 25 minutes so ensure you only mix what you will be able to apply within this time frame.

Is SlipFix Adhesive Suitable For Me?

As it is a cement based adhesive, SlipFix is suitable to be used on most projects. The cement base also makes it cheaper per square meter than most other alternatives. For most people, cement based adhesives are the way to go however, this is not always the case. If you are installing brick tiles to a non-porous surface you are probably better off using an epoxy based adhesive. This is opposed to a cement based adhesive. This is because, cement based adhesives rely on small irregularities and pores on the surface and use these to form a strong bond.  Non-porous surfaces such as porcelain present a closed smooth surface where the bonding effect may be difficult.

Things To Consider Before Using SlipFix Adhesive

Before you start to use your SlipFix adhesive on your Brick Slips there are a few things you’ll want to make sure of first. First you’ll want to make the surface you want to apply your SlipFix adhesive too, is dry, clean and in suitable condition to apply adhesive to (.i.e. not falling apart). If you don’t check for these things, you risk your slips ‘floating’ down the wall. Whilst watching brick slips ‘float’ may sound like fun, I can assure you it is not. In fact, after spending time and money to create your perfect brick slip project, seeing your brick slips ‘float’ down your wall is the last thing you’ll want to see. So make sure you use your SlipFix adhesive correctly!
