Application

Surface Preparation

  • For new substrate: it should be flat, hard, level, dry, and clean with normal absorption.    
  • For old substrate: scrape off any peel-off coatings or remove any de-bonding tiles and do the re-tiling.
  • Clean the surface until free from grease, dust, or any stains.
  • In case of new screed or render, the substrate should be fully cured for 7 days per 1 cm thickness of concrete before tiling.
  • In case of flexible or bendable substrates; gypsum board, gypsum-fiber board for instance; it is recommended to frame and brace them with screw for every area of 900 cm2 (30 x 30 cm.).  

Tiles Preparation

  • Tiles should not be immersed in water because it will decrease bonding strength of the adhesive.
  • Ensure that tiles are clean, dry, free from grease, dust, or any other contaminations.

Application

  • weber.fix plus is a ready-to-use tile adhesive, no water required. Just mix the product until a homogeneous paste.
  • After proper mix, the product should be left for 3 to 4 minutes before using in order to get the complete chemical reaction.  
  • Apply some paste adhesive on the wall, and then use a notched trowel to equally spread the adhesive horizontally on the area of 1 - 2 m2.  
    • The depth of the notched trowel is to control the constancy and quantity of adhesive. 
  • In case of tile size exceeding 25 x 25 cm (10" x 10"), it is recommended to have adhesive buttered onto the tile back in order to ensure the overall covering of the adhesive onto substrate and also to prevent voids after fixing tiles on the substrate, which could make tiles being fragile and allow water permeation. 
  • Lay tiles on the paste adhesive and press firmly or knock gradually with rubber hammer in order to spread the notch of adhesive equally and ensure a good contact.  
  • Leave clearance joints, at least 2 mm, for grouting. 
    • Carefully clean of any excess adhesive on the tiles and joints with a damp sponge when the adhesive is still wet. 
  • Any adjustments can be done within 10 to 20 minutes before weber.fix plus sets. 
  • Wait for 24 hours before grouting to let the adhesive dry. 
    • Weber grouting products are available in many ranges of color and applications depending on the joint width and working conditions.

Application Property

  • Open time: 30 minutes after opened or close the bucket every times after use
  • Adjustment time: 10 to 20 minutes
  • Time before grouting: at least 48 hours depending on substrate and tile 
  • Setting time: 8 to 15 days depending on climate conditions
  • Recommended thickness: 0.5 to 4 mm  

Recommendation for Use

  • Avoid applying the adhesive in lumps (as shown in the picture) at the tile back.  This will create voids underneath the tiles, which could lead to the tile fragility and water permeation.
  • Avoid using the adhesive on red-hot substrates or the substrates exposing to direct sunlight.  
  • To maintain straight joints, spacers should be used (as shown in the picture).  The joint width is controlled by the width of spacer.
  • To avoid water leakage into underneath tiles and to avoid tile movement when there is foot traffic, the joint width is recommended to be at least 1.5 mm for wall and at least 3 to 20 mm for floor.
