FMP (Face Mounted on Paper)
Papering is the conventional method used for assembling of mosaic. Under this method paper is glued on the face of mosaic (FMP). This is one of the universal ways of assembling mosaic into sheets.
BML (Back Mounted on Link)
‘LinkTec’ is the state-of-the-art innovative technology for assembling of mosaics through Robot. Under this method polyurethane links are created at the back of the mosaics (BML) for assembling them into sheets.
Advantages of “LinkTec” :
Enables better intactness

Floor coverings in areas that are walked on essentially with soft soled footwear or bare feet without scratching dirt. (e.g. Residential Bathrooms & Bedrooms without direct access from outside)
Floor coverings in areas that are walked on by soft soled or normal footwear with at the most occasional small amounts of scratching dirt. (e.g. Rooms in the living areas of homes but with the exception of Kitchens, Entrances and other rooms which may have a lot of traffic)
Floor coverings in areas that are walked on with normal footwear more often with small amounts of scratching dirt. (e.g. Residential Kitchens, Halls, Corridors, Balconies, Loggias and Terraces)
Floor coverings in areas that are walked on by regular traffic with some scratching dirt. (e.g. Entrances, Commercial Kitchens, Hotel, Exhibition and Sale Rooms)
Floor coverings in areas that are subject to severe pedestrian traffic over sustained periods with some scratching dirt. (e.g. Public areas such as Shopping centres, Airport concourses, Hotel Foyers, Public Walkways and Industrial Applications)
CARE & MAINTENANCE
Mosaic installed surfaces are easy to maintain. Regular cleaning is essential at different intervals, depending on the degree of soiling and utilization of the covering.
In general, you can use regular cleaning products for cleaning. Avoid cleaning agents containing hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid, ammonia, alkaline, bleaches, other hazardous/polluting compounds and cleaning tools like abrasive, wire brushes, etc.
Thorough rinsing and drying the mosaic surface is important after cleaning.
