Suitable Substrates

General Surface Prep

All grease, calcimine, loose scaly paint, wallpaper, dust, and dirt should be removed before MASTIK 500 is spread. Painted enameled walls and floors must be thoroughly scored or sanded to ensure bond to original base wall and floor.

The adhesive, tile and room should be at least 72° F (22° C) for 48 hours before and after installation. Installations where constant dampness or hydrostatic pressure is present are not recommended.
