USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.
Surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, sealers, adhesives or any other contaminant that would prevent a good bond. Concrete or plaster must be fully cured for 28 days and accept water penetration. Concrete must be free of efflorescence and not subject to hydrostatic pressure. Plywood flooring must be structurally sound and meet all ANSI and deflection requirements (no flex or movement). Surfaces and materials should be maintained at a temperature above 50° F (10° C) or below 100° F (38° C) for 72 hours.
Contains Petroleum Distillates. If ingested, do not induce vomiting and call a physician immediately. Use with adequate ventilation. Nonflammable. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY.
As an Adhesive
Using flat side of trowel, apply skim coat of adhesive. Immediately apply additional adhesive with notched side of trowel held at a 45° angle to the surface, combing in one direction. Press tile firmly into place in a perpendicular motion across ridges moving back and forth. With some tile, back-buttering is advisable. Adjust tile promptly and beat in with a beating block and rubber mallet. Periodically pull up a tile and check the back to ensure complete coverage with the adhesive. Do not apply more adhesive than can be covered with tile in 30 minutes. If adhesive starts to skin over (not sticky), retrowel before setting tile. Maintain temperatures above 50°F (10°C) until adhesive cures.
As a Grout
Tile must be firmly attached and adhesive cured 24 to 48 hours prior to grouting. Lightly dampen absorptive, porous tile with clean, cool water. Holding a rubber grout float at a 45° angle, force grout diagonally into joints ensuring joints are completely filled. Remove excess grout using edge of float held at a 90° angle. Work on an area about 5 to 10 square feet (.46 to .9 M2) at a time. Shaping joints and clean-up must begin immediately using a damp, small pore grout sponge in a circular motion. Use clean water and sponge, changing water frequently. Wait 4 hours before removing haze from tile with a soft, dry cloth. If a haze still exists after 24 hours, remove it with TileLab® Grout & Tile Cleaner or Aqua Mix® Non-Cement Grout Haze Remover.
At least 24 hours.
Typically 24 hours for temperatures above 50F (10C), allow 3 days for water exposure on shower walls and 7 days before water exposure on shower floors.
Clean tools and hands with water before material dries.
Keep from freezing.
Clean with a neutral cleaner such as Aquamix AquaKleen or Tilelab Grout & Tile Cleaner
