Step by Step solution
Surface to be tiled should be sound and clean, free from dust, oil, loose laitance, grease, molds, or any contaminating material. Applicators must ensure that the tiles are clean, free from dust and contaminants that could impair adhesion. The tile adhesive must be totally cured before the tile grout application.
Tiling on walls:
If the walls are not properly aligned or of poor quality, it is necessary to reskim using weberpremix skim coat or weberep 360 FFR to ensure better results.
Tiling on floors:
It is particularly important to ensure a solid flat surface as a concrete floor on which tiling can be applied.
Method of application
Tiling of uneven surfaces can be done with webercol plus, webercol bond or webercol flex.
For large format tiles bigger than 900 cm², it is recommended to use the back buttering method.
For extremely large tiles bigger than 3600 cm², only a flexible tile adhesive like webercol flex should be used.
Back buttering the tiles is recommended.
It is recommended to have a minimum joint width of 2 mm around the tiles. Grouting should be done at least after 24 hours of fixing tiles, using weberepox easy, weberjoint perfect or weberjoint.
The faster problems are noticed, the easier it will be to replace or fix a misplaced tile, since after 24 hours tiles cannot be easily removed as the adhesive would have started to harden.
