  •  Substrate preparation

All surfaces must be clean and free from oil, Grease or loose materials.

Substrate should be  dimensionally  stable. Allow time for shrinkage and structural strain movements.

To ensure proper mixing, a mechanically powered mixer or drill fitted  with  suitable paddle should be used.

5.0 liters (for each 20 kg bags)of clean water should be added to a clean container. The powder is then added slowly to the water while mixing continuously with low speed mixer/drill (400-600rpm). Mixing should be continued for

3 minutes until a uniform consistency is obtained.

  • Application

Spread to a uniform thickness of 2 to 3 mm. Place tiles firmly over the applied area.

Do not apply large areas of adhesive that can not be covered within the open wet time of the adhesive.

  • Joints

Tiles should not be placed over expansion or contraction joints. Stop tiles on joint edges and fill joints with flexible sealant.

STORAGE

Shelf life is 12 months if stored at temperatures between 2˚ Cand 50˚C.

If  these conditions areexceeded in any

respect, technical department should be contacted for advice.
