* Depending on the type of floor covering that you will be installing, you can either cover the cables with a polymer-modified mortar or with polymer-modified self-levelling underlayment.
**Before turning your system on it is important to respect the adhesive manufacturer's recommended adhesive curing time. Curing time may vary from 7 to 28 days. Consult the technical datasheet supplied by the manufacturer of the adhesive product you are using.
