Marble is the classic for timelessly beautiful living with a certain measure of luxury. Especially for kitchens, this noble material is currently being hyped like never before!

With the particularly elegant-looking d-c-fix® Marble Black adhesive foil, you can now quickly, easily and affordably bring that sense of luxury to your kitchen with a marble look!

Start by determining the dimensions of the surface that you want to redesign in marble effect. For this purpose, add the height (thickness) of your worktop plus approx. 1-2 cm to make sure you can completely cover around the edges later.
Next, transfer the overall dimensions of the surface to be covered onto the backing paper of the d-c-fix® Marble Black. adhesive foil.
Then, turn over the cut foil with the decor face up and pull off part of the protective film. Apply the now exposed adhesive surface to one corner of the work top, taking into account the edge overlap and excess foil, and apply the adhesive foil by pressing with your hands.
Following this, use the smoothing blade to smooth down the foil, applying firm pressure. Finally, affix the entire sheet of foil onto the worktop section-by-section, repeating the steps described above.
If small air inclusions form during application, you can pierce them with a fine pin and gently smooth them out using the smoothing blade.
A “hot” trick for application: Use a hair dryer at the lowest temperature setting to carefully heat the foil. This makes the adhesive foil softer and even easier to apply.
After first applying the d-c-fix® adhesive foil onto the worktop, progressively pull and fold back the backing film (in the direction of the as yet unaffixed foil) as you remove it. This allows you to apply the adhesive foil precisely, centimeter by centimeter, as bubble-free as possible.
