APPLICATION PROCEDURE

SURFACE PREPARATION

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from any contaminants such as dust, oil, wax, grease, curing agents or other substances that may affect adhesion performance. Building debris such as offcuts, sawdust, nails, screws, plaster, wood etc., must be thoroughly cleaned with the help of wire brush - vacuum cleaner - damp sponge.

MIXING

Use only clean tap/rainwater to mix FIXOBOND powder. Pour approximately 21 -29 % (depend up on product and atmospheric condition) of water in a clean vessel/container and gradually add 20 kg of adhesive whilst mixing. Using a mechanical mixer at medium to high speed, mix powder and liquid additive together until smooth paste consistency is achieved. Allow to set a few minutes, remix before applying. Adhesive should not slump when combed out using the appropriate size notched trowel.

APPLICATION METHOD

  1. i. Spread adhesive over prepared surface/substrate using an appropriate notched trowel.
  2. ii. When installing wall and oor tiles, lay one tile over adhesive then lift tile up again. Finished bed thickness should be a minimum of 3-4 mm for wall tiles and 3-8 mm for oor tiles.
  3. iii. Ensure all tiles are fully supported by adhesive and that no voids are present.
  4. iv. Inspect the underside of tile for complete bedding adhesion
  5. v. Clean away any excess adhesive from the joints and face of the tiles whilst the adhesive is still wet.
  1. vi. Ensure minimum grout joints of 1.5 – 3 mm spacing between tiles. Larger joints required for quarry / stone tiles. Refer to tile manufactures specifications.
  2. vii. Allow to dry undisturbed for 24 hours prior to foot traffic and grouting.

SUBSTRATE

Compatible with most solid substrates such as concrete, masonry, plaster board, fibrous cement sheeting, renders & screeds. All substrates should be pre-tested to ensure suitability.

CURING

Adhesive begins to set after an hour and is trafficable approximately 4 - 6 hours (longer if temperatures do not exceed 10°C) after installation depending on air and substrate temperatures. Grouting generally is best 24 hour after tiles have been installed. Optimum performance level is reached after 28 days of curing.

CLEAN UP

Remove excess adhesive from tile face and tools using a damp cloth whilst material is still wet. Wash all tools in warm soapy water immediately after use.

* Kindly follow the required health and safety precautionary measures. (Refer our Safety Data Sheet for more details)
