Application Procedures

Surface preparation

Surface must be prepared thoroughly before commencing application. All substrates must be structurally sound, stable, dry, and clean. Rough surfaces are to be evened or filled first with one of repairing products before setting. Building surfaces must be constructed to manufacturer’s recommendations and relevant building standards in force at tile of membrane application. Structurally unsound layers and surface contaminants are to be mechanically removed by abrasive blasting, blast tracking grinding or equivalent methods.

Mixing Instructions

Add AL BUSTAN TILE GLUE bag into a container of 4 ltr. (for 20 kg white adhesive) or 5 ltr. (for 25 kg grey adhesive) of clean water or and mix until a uniform lumps free consistency mix is achieved. For mixing use a slow speed mechanical mixer (200-300 rpm) fitted with suitable mixing paddle. Allow product to settle for approximately 5 minutes then lightly re-stir before use. If product is left undisturbed in external conditions is may thicken, therefore it is recommended to regularly stir during use.

Application Instruction

Before fixing tiles, ensure the backs of tiles are clean and free from dust. Saturate the concrete substrate with water prior to applying AL BUSTAN TILE GLUE,Select an appropriate notched trowel for selected tile size and ensure 100% coverage of adhesive is achieved. Once tile is placed an even adhesive bed should be formed between substrate and tile back. This is particularly important on membrane surfaces, preventing empty voids between the sealed surface and tile backs. Spread AL BUSTAN adhesive evenly over the substrate using notch towel, the first pass with its smooth part and the second pass with the toothed part. While adhesive is in a wet state. Press and slide the tile at night angles to the notched line of the adhesive to ensure 100% coverage to tile backs. For large tiles with deep rear keys or patterns (e.g. quarry tiles, terracotta tiles etc) and in order to achieve higher bonding it is recommended to spread the adhesive to the minimum spacing of 2mm be left around each tile (depends on type and size of tile). Remove excess adhesive from tile surface and joints using damp cloth before the adhesive dry. Joints grouting between tiles may be recommended after 24 hours of tiling for walls and 48 hours of tiling for floors, be sure that
