Substrates should be constructed and prepared to British Standard guidelines

Only mix small quantities at a time until you have become accustomed to the fast setting nature of the product

Always mix powder to water and mix to a smooth and lump free consistency. Never add water after initial mixing, as this will impair the strength of the adhesive

As an appropriate guide for powder to water ratio, 20kg of powder requires approximately 4.4-4.8L of water

The surface to be tiled should be primed first with Thompson's SBR Waterproofing Bonding Agent by following the instructions on pack

When fixing large format tiles: It is highly recommended to skim the back of the tile with a thin 1mm layer of adhesive. This will significantly improve the bond strength

Rapid Set Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive is suitable for use with natural stone tiles, but suitability with very porous natural stone tiles must be tested prior to use

Application – Thin Bed
On flat, even substrates where dry conditions exist, apply adhesive to substrate as a thin floated coat at a uniform thickness of 3mm and then rib using a notched trowel or spreader

Bed tiles into adhesive using a twisting action ensuring full coverage of adhesive between tile and substrate ensuring there are no hollow spaces or pockets of air.

Where tiling is subject to frequent wet conditions, such as in showers, in addition, apply as a solid bed a thin layer of adhesive to the back of the tile before applying to the substrate.


Application – Thick Bed
Where substrate conditions do not allow thin bed fixing, Rapid Set Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive can be applied to a maximum bed thickness of 12mm.

Apply adhesive to substrate as a floated coat and then rib using a notched trowel or spreader

Bed tiles into adhesive using a twisting action ensuring full coverage of adhesive between tile and substrate also ensuring there are no hollow spaces or pockets of air

It may be necessary to apply additional adhesive to the back of the tile

When applying tiles that have deep studs to the back, we strongly recommend covering the studs with adhesive.

Grouting

Do not start grouting until the adhesive has set. This time is usually 3-4 hours depending on the substrate and atmostpheric conditions
