Although this process is very basic and seems to be no technical content, it is very important.
2. The next step is to check whether the gap is dry. Tuck the paper towel into the gap to see if the paper towel is damp and soft. If it is wet, it cannot be constructed. Generally, it will be tested in several places to avoid uneven humidity.

5. Use professional pressing tools to press the joints with uniform strength, light and slow pressing over the joints, and do not repeat the pressing back and forth. The joint should be accelerated up to ensure that the joint is smooth. At the intersection, it is necessary to take the intersection as the starting point and extend outwards for repair. When pressing the cross buckle, the strength should be extra careful, the Angle of pressing joints should be lowered as far as possible, and the cross should be as smooth as possible, not too depressed.
