Product Details Uses QuickMix™ Tile Adhesive (361) is a normal polymer modified cement based adhesive (C1) with slip resistant (T) property, compliance with EN 12004:Class C1T for wall and floor tiling work. It is suitable for internal and external applications over concrete, brickwork and rendered surfaces. It is also ideal for installing ceramic tiles, homogenous tiles and mosaics.
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 between points of contact does not excedd 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™ Tile Adhesive with approximately 6.25 litres of water. - Mix thoroughly with an electrical mixer for 3-5 minutes until the desired homogeneous mortar is achieved. - Allow the mixture to stand for 3-5 minutes and thoroughly re-mix before using.
Application - QuickMix™ Tile Adhesive 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 6 mm x 6 mm notch trowel for tiles size 300 mm x 300 mm and below; and 10 mm x 10 mm notch trowel for tiles 300 mm x 60 mm. - Do not spot fix or soak the tiles. Clean back of the tile with a damp cloth if it dusty. - Only spread enough adhesive so that the tiles can be fixed within the open time. Care should be taken to spread 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 proceeds, a tile should be removed occasionally to check that the maximum possible contact is being maintained with the adhesive. - As a general guideline, tiles size 300 mm x 600 mm, with high ribs, lugs, grooves or uneven back must be buttered flat or covered with 1~2 mm of adhesive before placing the tiles on the combed adhesive bed on the substrate so that the voids are filled.
Protection - Tiles installed with QuickMix™ Tile Adhesive 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™ Tile Adhesive: - 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 5 mm - On surface which need to be set to light foot traffic rapidly.
Packaging - QuickMix™ Tile Adhesive is packed in 25 kg bags.
Storage - QuickMix™ Tile Adhesive should be stored in a dry place free from excessive moisture. - It has a shelf life of 6 months in its original packing.
