Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

To prepare the product mix 5 Liters of resin (component B) with 25 kg of powder (component A), mix until a uniform, lump free consistency mix is achieved. For mixing process, a slow speed drill (200 – 300 rpm) fitted with a suitable paddle is recommended.

Application

Spread SILIKRETE on the substrate to a uniform thickness using a toothed spatula, the first pass with its smooth part and the second pass immediately after, using the toothed part of the spatula.

SILIKRETE may be applied for thickness from 1.5 mm-10 mm.

Place the tiles onto the adhesive bed.

Apply sufficient pressure on the tile during fixing it with slight twisting movement in order to ensure good contact with the adhesive.

In case of large size tiles, it is necessary to spread the adhesive also to the backside of the tile and then place the tiles into the adhesive bed.

Apply enough material that can be tiled during the adhesive's open wet time. Spreading large areas may results in drying the adhesive before tiles can be fixed causing poor adhesion.

Finishing

Remove excess adhesive with damp cloth before the material has set. Joint grouting between tiles may be commenced 10 hours after tiles has been laid on the walls and 24 hours after tiles are laid on the floors.

Cleaning

Tools and equipment should be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened materials should be mechanically removed.

Recommendations

  • Do not use on walls or floors subjected to intense movement (chipboard, asbestos cement board or wood agglomerates etc.)
  • Do not use SILIKRETE for fixing green marble or similar colors
  • Stiffened mortar must not be diluted with water , component B or with fresh mortar
  • Do not use SILIKRETE on metal, wood or non-absorbing surfaces
  • Do not apply SILIKRETE in rainy weather, high winds and sand storms
  • Do not apply under direct sun
  • Keep equipment cool and use cold water
Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be sound, clean & uncontaminated. This preparation should leave an exposed concrete surface free from dust, loose particles, deletrious matter, oil, grease, chemical films & other contaminant.

All loose particles of mortar, paint, etc. must be physically removed.

Concrete or blockwork: should b allowed to cure sufficiently so that all shrinkage movements take place before fixing tiles.

Gypsum supports: must be treated with PRIMER A16. Should not have a percentage of humidity more than 10%.

The surface of substrates must be moistened slightly with clean water to reduce the absorption of water from the mortar. Do not moistened the tiles.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

SILIKRETE can be harmful to skin. During application, wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles, gloves and respiratory equipment if necessary.

In case of contact with skin, rinse with water and again wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice accordingly.

If ingested, obtain medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
