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.
