Instructions for use

  1. Add water and mix by hand or mechanically until you obtain a smooth paste of a workable consistency (8,5l-9,5l).
  2. Leave the paste to stand for 5 minutes and mix again before applying.
  3. Spread the paste on the surface in sections of a surface area no larger than 2 m², combining with suitable trowel. If double gluing is required, spread the mixture over the back of the tile as well.
  4. Put the ceramic tiles on top of the freshly-laid adhesive, pressing lightly to ensure that the whole tile surface comes into contact with the adhesive, filling any grooves.
  5. Leave a joint of a width of at least 1.5 mm between indoor tiles and at least 5 mm between outdoor tiles. Wait 24 hours before grouting wall tilles and 48 hours before grouting floor tiles.
  6. Respect all perimeter and structural joints. Place one partition joint every 50 m² for indoor floor tiling, and one every 30 m² for outdoor floor tiling.
