Instructions for use

  1. Add water and mix by hand or mechanically until you obtain a smooth paste of a workable consistency.
  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, combing with 10 x 10 x 10 mm 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 tiles 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.
Warnings and recommendations
  • Do not exceed heights of 2 m on outdoor renderings.
  • Do not apply when frost or rain are forecasted, or at temperatures below 5 ºC or above 35 ºC.
  • Do not apply in areas where there is a risk of standing water.
  • In extreme weather conditions (wind or high temperatures), the product will dry more quickly than usual. This will result in a shorter open time.
  • In high temperatures, windy conditions or if the application surface is very absorbent, it is advisable to moisten the surface and wait for the film of water to disappear before applying the product.
  • Check, periodically, that a surface film has not formed on the adhesive paste once it has been spread onto the surface. If a film has formed, remove the product and apply a fresh coat.
  • Check that the paste is sticky enough by periodically lifting one of the tiles already in place to ensure that it is well stuck down.
  • Use within 1 year of date of packaging. Store the product in its original packaging in a dry, covered place protected from humidity.
