    MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Add 5 litres of water to suitable container.

    2. Slowly add 20 kg of tile adhesive.

    3. Mixing with an electric drill and paddle will ensure thorough mixing.

    4. Mix to a creamy consistency.

    5. Use within 3 hours.

     

    SURFACE PREPARATION

    (These recommendations are in accordance with the SABS standard SANS 10107:2011 - The design and installation of ceramic tiles.)

    1. Ensure that surfaces to be tiled are sound (no cracks or crumbling), clean, free of dust, release agent, fungi, or any surface dampness. Fungi must be removed and the spores killed with the use of an effective fungicide. (a dilution of household bleach is sufficient)

    2. New walls and floors must be allowed to cure for minimum periods as listed below to ensure that movement due to shrinkage does not affect the installation

    a. Direct bedding onto new brick walls and concrete surfaces: 6 weeks

    b. New plaster walls: 2 weeks

    c. New screeded floors: 4 weeks *This guideline only serves as a basic manual for the surface preparation, product selection and installation procedure for this type of application. Each installation needs to be assessed on merits and the products used and the procedures followed should be in accordance with the SABS code for the design and installation of ceramic tiles (SABS 10107:2011).

     

    3. Very smooth surfaces such as steel trowelled and off-shutter concrete must be acid washed to remove laitance and then rinsed thoroughly with cold water. The surface must then be primed with a mixture consisting of two parts PRO GRIP BASECOAT ® mixed with one part PRO GRIP KEYCOAT ® and allowed to dry prior to tiling.

    4. Painted surfaces, gypsum plasters and surfaces that have old bitumen adhesive on them must be chipped in order to expose at least 80% of the substrate. The surface must then be primed with a mixture consisting of two parts PRO GRIP BASECOAT ® mixed with one part PRO GRIP KEYCOAT ® and allowed to dry prior to tiling.

    5. Highly porous substrates can negatively affect the bond strength of the tile adhesive. Check the porosity of the substrate by applying a small quantity of water. If the moisture is completely absorbed within one minute, then the surface is too porous and will need to be sealed with a mixture of two parts PRO GRIP BASECOAT ® mixed with one part PRO GRIP KEYCOAT ® and allowed to dry prior to tiling.

     

    APPLICATION

    Only apply sufficient adhesive to an area as can be tiled within 10 minutes. Use a suitable notched trowel to maintain a minimum bed height of 6-7 mm for floor tiling and 3-4 mm for wall tiling. The recommended trowels are as follows: Application

    Trowel Size (height x width x gap)

    Wall tiles

    6mm x 8mm x 5mm

    Floor tiles smaller than 400mm x 400 mm

    10mm x 10mm x 6mm

    Floor tiles larger than 400mm x 400

    17mm x 22mm x 6mm
