Application Procedure

Clean loose particles, dirt, grease and traces of foreign material from the surface, if necessary by using wire brush/sand paper or by chipping. For loose plaster areas, remove the defective material and re -plaster the area with BuildWell Ready-Mix Plaster. For floors/ walls, which are not even, re-plaster with BuildWell Ready-Mix Plaster to make them even. New Construction: Before tiling the new construction should be cured for 6 weeks. Old Construction: Remove all loose portions and make good with sand cement slurry bonding coat prior to apply BuildWell Ready-Mix Tile Adhesive.

Take clean water as per the water demand in a clean bucket. Add 1 kg BuildWell Ready-Mix Tile Adhesive. Stir continuously by hand to obtain a homogenous lump-free paste. Tile Adhesive should be creamy like butter. Allow the resultant paste to stand for about 5 minutes for the additives to dissolve. Re-mix again for about 2 minutes. The mixture is now ready for application. Use the mix within 30 minutes.

Dampen the surface to be plastered with clean water, Allow excess water to drain off. The tiles should be immersed in water for about two hours before fixing. Using a steel trowel/ blade, apply the above mix to a thickness of 2-3 mm either on the wall or on the back of the tile (but not both). Using a notched trowel remove excess material, Put the tile in place and tap gently with a wooden hammer. Remove excess mixture from the tiles by using a damp cloth or sponge.

BuildWell Ready-Mix Tile Adhesive contains only eco-friendly fillers and additives. However, being cement based, it is alkaline and hence it is advisable to avoid direct eye and skin contact with this. In case of eye contact, kindly wash with clean water at least for 15 minutes and seek medical help and keep it out of children reach
