Installation
Preparation
For new substrate : 
The surface must be dry, flat, level and fully cured. It should be free of all grease, oil, dust, curing compounds, old adhesive residues and any other adulterant. Make sure water absorption of the substrate is at normal level. In case of new render or leveling , the substrate should be fully cured for 7 days or 168 hrs. per 1 cm thickness of adhesive before tiling.
For old substrate : Clean up the surface with high-pressure jet spray to remove dust, adulterant and any de-bonding tiles. Remove the left water before re-tiling.

  • Apply notched side at 60-degree angle in the same direction throughout installation surface.
  • Recommend to apply the product all over the back of tile to compensate bending, prevent gap under tile that may cause less compressive strength and easily to crack.
  • After placing tile on the prepared surface, slide it orthogonally to the notched lines and tap in order to maximize bonding.
  • Tiles can be adjusted for proper alignment within 15 mins after apply the products. Timing may vary depends on temperature. Recommend not to adjust further after setting.
