Product Details Uses QuickMix™ ReadyFix (360) is a modified cementitious adhesive for installation of ceramic tiles on walls and floors.It is suitable for internal and external applications over concrete, brickwork and rendered surfaces.
Advantages - Consistent quality - Pre-packed for convenience in handling, mixing and application - Good bonding strength - Weather resistance and high durability
Surface Preparation - All surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, free from dust, oil and any trace of foreign materials that may affect bonding. - Brick, block and concrete walls/floors must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to tiling. - Cement render and screed must be allowed to cure for at least 7 days and finished to semi-smooth finish with a wood float. After curing, a thorough check on the soundness in adhesion of the screed and render should be carried out. Cracks should also be properly rectified. - Painted surface must be roughened with a wire brush and flaking paint removed, to expose a clean and sound background suitable for direct fixing. - The trueness of the background surface required for adhesive beds should be such that, when checked with a 2m straightedge, any gap under the straightedge, any gap under the straightedge between points of contact does not exceed 3mm. When the gap exceeds 3mm, local correction of the background by dubbing out up to 6mm thick using the same adhesive can be done.
Mixing - Mix one bag (25 kg) of QuickMix™ ReadyFix with approximately 6.0 litres of clean water. - Mix thoroughly with an electrical mixer for 3-5 minutes until the desired homogeneous mortar paste is achieved. - Allow the mixture to stand for 3-5 minutes and thoroughly re-mix before using.
Application - QuickMix™ ReadyFix is applied to the prepared surface with a trowel and then combed through with a suitably sized notched trowel onto the surface. As a general guideline, use 6mm x 6mm notched trowel for wall and 10mm x 10mm x 10mm notched trowel for floor tiling. - Do not spot fix or soak the tiles. Clean back of the tile with a damp cloth if it dusty. - Only spread enough adhesive that can be completed before the surface of adhesive begins to form a skin. After spreading the adhesive, press the tile firmly into the tile faces with a damp sponge before the adhesive sets. - As fixing preceeds, a tile should be removed occasionally to check that the maximum possible contact is being maintained with the adhesive. - Tiles with high ribs or lugs, grooves or an uneven back must be buttered flat or covered with a layer or adhesive before placing the tiles on the combed adhesive bed on the substrate so that the voids are filled.
Protection - Tiles installed with QuickMix™ ReadyFix must not be subject with running water or rain for at least 24 hours. - Grouting can be carried out 24 hours after completion of tiling. - Light pedestrian traffic is allowed 4 days after completion of tiling and grouting. - Heavy pedestrian traffic is only permitted 14 days after completion. - Impact vibration and hammering on adjacent and/or backside of walls are prohibited for as long as proper curing of materials requires. - At all times, the floor and wall tiles should be kept clean and free from all materials likely to cause stains, e.g. oils, grease, paint. - Appropriate types of sheets, boards should be laid loosely over the floor for protection. - Access to the completed works should be restricted during the curing period.
Do not use QuickMix™ ReadyFix: - Over wood, timber and gypsum surface. - On concrete slabs subject to strong shrinkage and other movement. - With large size tiles. - For installation of tiles that require an adhesive thickness greater than 5mm. - On surface which need to be set to light foot traffic rapidly. - For continuous water immersion and swimming pool application.
