For the preparation of mortar adhesive, pour into a container 6.0-6.5 liters of water for each 20 Kg bag of Vetoset CA546. Add the powder to the water and mix with a low speed  (200-300 rpm) electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved. 

Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and briefly remix without adding extra water.

Place the tiles onto the fresh adhesive mortar and firmly press them with a slight twist; immediately knock them into the desired position. Adjust the position of the tiles, if required, within its adjustability time of  10-15 minutes after installation.
