The surface must be fully cured, structurally stable, level, even, clean, and free from contaminants such as dirt, dust, loose material, oils, and chemicals. The use of a spirit level bar is essential to ensure the levelness and/or plumpness of the surface. For painted surfaces, acid etch or abrade paint to ensure proper bonding.
Caution: Use only non-absorptive materials as mixing base (plastic pail or galvanized iron sheets). If absorbent materials such as plywood, wooden box, gypsum board, fiber cement board, or cardboard are used, it will affect the chemical properties of the product, which can result in bonding failure and poor product performance. Use ONLY non-absorbent materials such as plastic pail or galvanized iron sheet as mixing base. Pour water into a container and add ABC TILE ADHESIVE Original powder. Stir to attain a smooth, lump-free, and pasty consistency. Let it rest for 15 minutes & stir again briefly before use.
Dampen surface before application. Use a notched trowel to spread the mortar evenly over an area of 1m2 at a time to produce a ribbed thinbed.
Install tiles within the open time. Adjust and align tiles. Use a rubber mallet to apply pressure on the tiles. NOTE: Do random checks if the back of the tiles is fully covered with tile adhesive. Check if tile adhesive mortar still adheres to your finger to find out if the open time has not lapsed. If the open time has lapsed, DO NOT add newly prepared tile adhesive to a previously mixed batch. Remove the old tile adhesive layer and reapply a new one to avoid bonding failure. TIP: Use tile spacers for uniform grout lines. A tile joint width is needed to accommodate possible tile movement due to thermal deformation, substrate shrinkage, or tile expansion, thus preventing the tile from cracking.
