1. How to determine the thickness of the tile adhesive?
The minimum thickness of the tile adhesive is 2 mm, and the maximum is about 1 cm, in some cases up to 2 cm. The thickness of the adhesive layer depends on the weight of the finishing material. The heavier the material– the thicker the adhesive layer should be.
2. Is it possible to lay tiles in wet weather?
Yes. Laying tiles in wet weather is possible, because the surface on which the finishing material is glued must already be moistened. An important point: the surface should be damp, but without puddles of water.
3. How soon can I walk on the tile?
The average commissioning time of the vertical surface is 8 hours, the horizontal surface is 24 hours. Accordingly, you can walk on the tile in an average of 24 hours.
4. What is the shrinkage of tile glue?
The shrinkage of tile adhesive depends on the dry residue of the material. What percentage of the dry residue in the adhesive solution, this percentage will remain after the material has completely dried.
5. How to properly prepare tile glue?
To prepare a working adhesive composition, pour the dry mixture into a container with clean water and use a low-speed mixer to mix the composition until a homogeneous mass is obtained. Next, you need to leave the resulting mixture for 3-4 minutes, then re-mix it with a mixer for 1-2 minutes.
The tile, like other decorative material, must be laid on a flat surface.Read article
