SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

The substrate should be free of dust, grease, wax, oil, dirt, loose plaster, laitance, curing compounds, paint and all other friable materials and contaminants likely to prevent the adhesive bonding. New concrete should be left with a wood float finish and sufficiently aged for a minimum of 28 days. Shiny smooth surfaces on old concrete should be acid etched or scabbled. Cemix cement screeds/floor levellers/ renders must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 7 days. All substrates should be structurally sound, securely fastened and properly supported to eliminate any movement that may cause cracking. CEMIX WALL & FLOOR TILE ADHESIVE is suitable for tiling over timber floors, provided that a fibre cement sheet tile underlay is initially installed over the timber floor. All substrates that are suitable for tiling should be primed using undiluted CEMIX TILE BOND LATEX. For further information, contact the Cemix Technical support.
