Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

For the preparation of mortar adhesive, pour into a container 4.6-6.6 liters of water for each 20Kg bag of Vetoset CA540.

Add the powder to the water and mix for 3-4 minutes using a low- speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle, until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and remix briefly without adding further water.

Application

Apply the mixed mortar adhesive in a thin layer and firmly press it onto the surface that will be tiled, work with the flat edge of the trowel. Comb the adhesive with a suitable notched trowel horizontally to achieve a bed thickness of 2 - 5 mm. Spread the mortar adhesive to a manageable 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.

Use the back buttering method for large tile format applications. Apply and comb the adhesive on the surface to be tiled. Also, add the adhesive to the backside of the tile with/without combing.

Allow the installed tiles to remain undisturbed for at least 24 hours.

Mortar adhesive must not rise between the tile joints higher than halfway the thickness of the tiles. It is recommended to use Vetofill CG550 to fill the joint gaps after 2 days of tile installation.

If more deformability is required to reach S2 specifications, the mixing water is either completely replaced or partially replaced by 2.5 liters of Vetobond AB432 depends on the flexibility needed.


Cleaning

Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use. Remove the hardened material using mechanical means.

Surface Preparation

The substrate should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt, curing compound, or any other substance that might impair the quality of bond with the substrate.

Concrete, hollow blocks, and cement-based substrates must be sufficiently cured and irrigated by water 1hour prior to application. The surface should appear damp with no water pooling.

Gypsum boards, plasterboards, anhydrite screeds, must be sufficiently dry and free from dust.
