Base preparation

   The base surface should be strong, carefully cleared of dust, dirt, oils, and greases. Unstable and fragile parts of the base must be removed. Large unevenness of a walls, a crack, and a recess should be pre-aligned with one of the Plasters IVSIL. To correct uneven floors use one of self-leveling floors or screeds IVSIL TIE-ROD.

   Before the faceworking surface should be primed with IVSIL BAZOVAYA. Strongly absorbing bases (gaze and foam concrete, gipsum plaster, anhydrite floor) should be primed with IVSIL GLUBOKOGO PRONIKNOVENIYA (primer penetrator).

Mixing of mortar

   Dry mix is poured into a mixing bucket with clean water in the following proportion: 1 kg of dry mix for 0,22-0,25 l of water. Then it is thoroughly stirred, manually or with a mixing drill, until the mixture is homogeneous and elastic. The received mixture is left for 5 minutes and then stirred again. Prolonged period of this tile adhesive setting allows this mixture to be used within 5 - 6 hours.


   Adhesive solution is applied on basis with the help of a trowel and then is spread with a notched trowel. The size of notches depends on the size of a tile. Put a tile on the top of the mixture, which has just been applied, and press it to the surface. After being pressed, adhesive mixture should be covering not less than 65% of the tile’s surface, for ceramic tiles 20*20 and bigger and for all size ceramic-granite - 80%. When used for exterior jobs, to provide 100% of tile’s cover with adhesive and to guarantee gluing to the surface, it is recommended to apply adhesive to the reverse side of the tile as well before to put it on the surface covered with the mixture.

   A tile must be laid within 20 minute from application of adhesive on the basis. Correction of the tile position can be done within 20 minutes after the tile is laid. There is no need to soak tiles in water before use. The air temperature and the temperature of the basis must be from +5° to +30°.

   Grouting of wall tiles can be done in 6-8 hours, grouting of floor tiles in 24 hours. In bad conditions (strong wind, direct sunshine, high or low temperature, highly absorbing surface) lifetime of the prepared mixture may be decreased.

   When used for heated floor systems, the system should be switched off before to start tiling and can be switched on again after adhesion process is fully finished (28 days). All technical characteristics of the adhesive are fully active at the temperature of 18-20° and 60% humidity level.

Consultation on the pplication materials



   Strong tile adhesive IVSIL CLASSIC for professional tilling jobs.

   Tile adhesive for ceramic and ceramic-granite tiles, with strong fixation ability, cement based, includes mineral and polymer additives. It is suitable for all types of ceramic, porcelain tiles and ceramic mosaic for dry, humid and wet premises. It is frost resistant and water resistant tile adhesive, which can be used for interior and exterior jobs.

   It is also used for laying of standard ceramic-granite tiles, sized 30x30 cm, (interior use). It is used as a material for ceramic tiles of any size, including big size tiles. It can be laid over the following basis: concrete, brickwork, aerated and foam concrete, cement, cement-lime and gypsum plasters, gypsum and anhydrite floor, strongly fixed (not deformed) plasterboards of gypsum-cardboards and gypsum-fibre boards.

   Due to ability of fixing tiles on the surface and preventing them from sliding down, this adhesive is suitable for «top to bottom» tilling. It can be used in «heated floor» systems as a thin-layer composition to keep warmth of the basis. Thin layer of application minimises consumption of the adhesive, makes this material cost effective. Increased correction time (20 minutes) allows to speed up the process of tilling for big areas.

   Please pay attention to the following: professional strong tile adhesive IVSIL Classic is suitable for thin layer application (not more than 6 mm). If applied in thicker layers, it may result in increased period of setting and hardening. Uneven patches of the basis should be levelled by corresponding IVSIL materials for wall plastering or floor levelling. If you need to combine the process of tilling with the process of surface levelling, use thick-layered IVSIL MAXI PLUS.  

  Tile adhesive IVSIL Classic is certified in EU according to the standard EN 12004, class C1T. Click HERE to learn more about EU certification of the adhesive. The basic price of the strong tile adhesive is 217 roubles. To see prices of other tile adhesives visit the section «Price List».
