Application Information
Instructions for use

Surface preparation

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

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

Concrete or blockwork: should be allowed to cure sufficiently so that all shrinkage movements take place before fixing tiles.
The surface of substrates must be moistened slightly with clean water to reduce the absorption of water from the mortar.  Do not moisten the tiles.

Metal surfaces must be free from greasy and rusty tracks.


Pour component B (hardener) into component A (base), and carefully mix with a low turns electric mixer (200 – 300 per minute) until a homogeneous mix is obtained. Then add component C (filler) and mix the product for few minutes.


Place the tile onto the adhesive bed. Apply the product onto the support with a toothed spatula, spreading it at first with the straight edge of the spatula, and immediately after with the toothed one.
Apply sufficient pressure on the tile during fixing it with slight twisting movement in order to ensure good contact with the adhesive.
If a tight waterproofing is required to the substrate, spread POXYCOL on the sub base with the smooth spatula and leave a thickness of at least 2 mm. After about 24 hours, apply the second coat of product for the tile fixing.
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 result in drying the adhesive before tiles can be fixed causing poor adhesion.


Remove excess adhesive with damp cloth before the material has set.  Joint grouting between tiles may be commenced 12 hours after tiles have been laid. Final hardening is about 7 days.


Clean tools with SOLVENTE 10, promptly before the material hardens. Hardened and cured material must be mechanically removed.


  • Do not apply during high winds and sand storms
  • Do not apply under direct sun
  • Keep equipment cool and use cold water

Water Cleanable Solvent Free Epoxy Adhesive

Monneli Primer A16

Synthetic Resin Primer

PRIMER A16 is used for the preventive treatment prior to laying of ceramic tiles with the cement adhesive on gypsum boards. Such application on the supports avoids the chemical reaction between the gypsum sulphates and the cement aluminates contained in the adhesives for ceramic tiles, which in case of humidity presence could provoke breakaway of tiles.
It can be also used at gypsum or very porous supports before painting with acrylic or vinyl paints, to avoid too fast drying.
PRIMER A16 is used on light weight plaster and other porous surfaces such as asbestos boards, on wood, hardboard, chipboard, and so on, before fixing ceramic wall and floor tiles in the usual way.
