PREPARATION & APPLICATION

Preparation:Substrates must be sound, free from oil, grease, and sufficiently dry. Cementitious substrates must be cured. Wipe the back side of tiles with water if dusty.Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes to mature. After 1-2 minutes remixing, the paste is ready for application.

Mixing: Pour 20 kg of YAPFİX Granite Adhesive into 5-6 litres of clean water slowly and mix to obtain a homogeneous paste free from lumps. A low speed mixer is recommended to mix. Do not add any additive which is not mentioned in the instructions for the application

Application: Spread the mortar onto the substrate with notched trowel of which notch size is appropriate to the tile dimension (See Notch Size Recommendation Table) To obtain a good adhesion first apply a thin coat of YAPFİX Granite Adhesive with the flat side of trowel, then notch with the toothed side of trowel.
Application of large tiles (greater than 40x40 cm), on existing tiles or which are subject to frost or heavy traffic, YAPFİX Granite Adhesive should be applied also on the back of tiles. (combined method)
Open time is 20 minutes. Install the tiles within this period with pressure. Unfavourable climatic conditions (high temperature, low humidity, wind, etc) can reduce this time to just a few minutes. If this period exceed, scratch and discard the mortar.
Dispose mortars of which pot life is expired. Clean tools and hands with water, surfaces with a damp cloth.
Tiles installed with GRANİTECH must not be subject to water for at least 24 hours

Warnings:Since contains cement, irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.

Indicated consumption is a general information. It may change depending on the application conditions and
