How to apply
- Ensure the substrate is clean and free from impurities like dust, dirt, debris, oil, grease, curing agents, loose plaster etc.
- Clean the back of tile for any dust or coating
- Clean & dampen the surface and remove the excess water. Let the substrate dry completely before applying the adhesive.
- Ensure the area is shaded from sunlight. The adhesive shall be applied with the flat side of the trowel using a scraping motion to work the material into good contact with the surface to be covered.
- Additional mortar is then applied with the notched edge of the trowel.
- When installing large tiles, spread adhesive onto back of tile in addition to troweling material over a surface to be tiled. Select proper type of notched trowel.
a) Thin Tiles upto size 300 X 300 mm (1’X1’), use a square notched trowel of size 6mm X 6mm to provide a total thickness of 3mm
b) Large Porcelain Tiles upto 450 X 450 mm with ribs, use a square notched trowel of size 6mm X 6mm and back butter the tiles with the same adhesive to a thickness of 1-1.5mm to provide a total thickness of 4.5mm
c) Large Porcelain Tiles upto 600 X 600 mm (2’X2’) with ribs, use a square notched trowel of size 6mm X 9mm and back butter the tiles with the same adhesive to a thickness of 1-1.5mm to provide a total thickness of 6mm
- The most important standard to keep in mind is to ensure that the piece of tile is completely bedded in the mortar or adhesive with 100% coverage.
- The joints between two metal sheets must be brought through to the surface of tile. At no point of time the adhesive should enter the joint between two metal sheets.
- Rear face of tiles (especially Porcelain tiles) should be cleaned with the damp sponge to clean all the dust. Do not saturate in water.
- Excess mortar on adhesive shall be cleaned from the surface of the tile with wet cloth or sponge while the mortar is fresh.
- Resin-backed Tiles
