Special Properties of “Hitech Tile Adhesive”:

  • Preparation is simple, just add water.
  • Although cement based, requires no curing.
  • It can be used in damp areas.
  • Excellent tensile adhesion strength.
  • Grouting is possible on the same day.
  • Polymer modified formulation enhances its durability.
  • Being ready to use, the product saves considerable time and labour.
  • Non-hazardous.

Areas of Use:

  • To fix wall and floor tiles, natural stones likes granite, marble etc.
  • Cementitious screeds.
  • Cement Mortar beds.
  • Bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Fixing the facades.
  • Swimming pools.

Surface Preparation:

The surface should be clean, dry, and free from dust, grease / oil and other contaminates.

Concrete Floors and Walls:

Allow at least 4 weeks for concrete to cure prior to tiling. Screeds must be 5-7 days old and properly cured. The surface should be properly leveled for best results of “Hitech Tile Adhesive”. Remove curing compounds, if any, from the surface.

Existing Tiles:
Existing tiles must be roughened mechanically with wire brush.

Painted Surfaces:
Oil-based paint should be removed by roughening mechanically and loose flaking paint should be removed completely. Allow the surface to dry after cleaning.

Fibre Cement Sheets:
Fibre cement sheets must be primed with water and all joints must be taped with PVC duct tape and fixed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Preparation of “Hitech Tile Adhesive”:

  • Take a small amount of water in a bucket and gradually add “Hitech Tile Adhesive” in it. Mix the product with water in the ratio of 1:4
  • Mixing can be done manually or by stirrer.
  • Mixing to be done till homogenous mix is obtained.
  • After proper mixing, leave the paste for 5-10 minutes for polymeric dispersion before application.
  • The paste should be kept away from direct sunlight and heat, and used within 60-90 minutes of preparation (after mixing with water).

Do’s about “Hitech Tile Adhesive”:

  • Before fixing the tiles, natural stones etc., clean the backsides of these with wet cloth to remove all dust particles.
  • Apply a layer of adhesive on the substrate and spread it by notch trowel.
  • Lay the tiles/stones and press firmly. Then knock properly with rubber hammer in order to spread the adhesive equally and for a good contact.
  • Remove any surplus adhesive on the face of the tiles.
  • Any adjustment should be done within 30 minutes and before adhesive starts hardening.
  • Wait for at least 12 hours before grouting for better contact.

Don’ts about “Hitech Tile Adhesive”:

Avoid very high speed mixing when electric mixing equipments are used.

Coverage: 55 – 65 sq.ft per 20 Kg. bag with notch trowel for a bed of 3 – 4mm thickness.

*Please note that coverage will depend upon the undulation of base substrate and thickness of material used.

Useful Tips:

  • “Hitech Tile Adhesive” should be stored in a dry place.
  • It is recommended that when fixing tiles, a minimum spacing of 3mm should be left around each tile.
  • Excess adhesive should be removed using a damp sponge or cloth before material has set.
  • Floors are ready to receive light foot traffic after 24 hours and may be put into full use after 48-72 hours

* Although “Hitech Tile Adhesive” is non-hazardous, following precautions should be adhered:

  • Keep out of reach of the children.
  • Avoid inhalation the dust.
