Mixing

For the preparation of mortar adhesive, pour into a container 7.5-8 liters of water for a 25kg bag of Pool Fix. Add the powder to the water and mix with a low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes, until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and remix briefly without adding further water. 

Blend Pool Fix manually for small quantities but ensure to maintain the correct amount of powder to water.

If required, add 0.5 Ltr of Saveto Bond 2 to the mixing water followed by the addition of powder. Use the mixed material within 2 hours.

Do not add water to the mixture once the mortar adhesive starts hardened.


Application

Spread the mixed mortar adhesive and firmly press it onto the surface that will be tiled, work with a notched trowel. Spread the mortar adhesive to an area that can be tiled within 10-15 minutes. Press the tiles firmly over the mortar adhesive and immediately knock into the desired position. Adjust the position of the tiles, if required, within its adjustability time of  10-15 minutes after installation.
