                                    The proper slump range will ensure TufTiles maintain a solid connection
                                    with the cured concrete.

                              3.    For Radius or Connected Tiles, see below. For normal tile install, do not remove
                                    protective plastic covering from TufTile until it’s installed and concrete is
                                    fully cured.
