General Surface Prep

USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.

Exterior and wet areas must have proper sloping to drains. All surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from contaminants that would prevent a good bond. Newly prepared concrete must be troweled smooth and textured to a fine broom finish and cured for 28 days. Existing surfaces must be scarified and leveled, and all defects must be repaired. Cracks exceeding 1/8" (3 mm) should be treated in accordance with TCNA F125 or TCNA F125A.

Movement Joint Placement

Do not bridge joints designed to experience movement. Carry these types of joints through the tile work. Clean the joint and install an open or closed cell-backer rod to the proper depth, as outlined in the Tile Council Handbook, EJ171. Next compress sealant into the joint, coating the sides and leaving the sealant flush with the surface. When the sealant is dry, place bond-breaker tape over the joint. Install the tile work onto the membrane, but do not bridge the joint. After the tile work is properly set, follow the architect's and manufacturer's instructions to fill the joint with a specified color sealant.
