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 0,24-0,27 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 30 minute from application of adhesive on the basis. Correction of the tile position can be done within 30 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 18-20ªC and 60% humidity level.

Consultation on the pplication materials



   Strong adhesive for ceramic-granite tiles, ceramic-granite IVSIL PROFIT is based on cement, fractioned sand and a complex of polymer additives. Due to specially enhanced fixation ability tile adhesive IVSIL PROFIT is recommended for materials, which subject adhesives to extra load, such as ceramic-granite of big size 600 x 600 or middle size natural stone.

   IVSIL PROFIT adhesive is suitable for all types of ceramic-granite, big size ceramic tiles and mosaics, middle size natural stone tiles. It is used in dry, humid and wet premises; suitable for interior and exterior jobs. IVSIL PROFIT adhesive can glue ceramic-granite to any basis: concrete, ceramic and silicate brickwork, aerated and foam concrete, cement, lime-cement and gypsum plasters, gypsum and anhydrite floors, plasterboards and gypsum-fibre boards, Old tilling surface.

   It is used as tile adhesive for hard conditions, including changes of temperature and humidity, highly demanding dynamic and static conditions (highly walked-over areas, office and industrial areas, balconies, terraces, basements). 

   This tile adhesive for ceramic-granite is of high elasticity and enhanced bonding ability guarantees perfect result of tilling facade, tilling for heated floors; it is suitable for any basis and for temperature changing conditions, it can sustain dynamic oscillation and it is designed for tilling of big size ceramic-granite 60*60. This tile adhesive is characterised by low consumption as it can be applied in thin layer. It is recommended for use in «heated floor» systems (floors with electric or water heating) together with thin floor IVSIL TIE-ROD - II or IVSIL EXPRESS-FINISH to minimise warmth loss.

   Prolonged time of setting period of IVSIL PROFIT allows to do tilling jobs on big areas: it is possible to do tilling within 30 minutes from application. The time for correction of tiles/ceramic tiles is also prolonged – it is 30 minutes as well.

   Please pay attention that IVSIL PROFIT adhesive for ceramic-granite is material for thin layer application (not more than 6 mm). If applied in a thicker layer, it will considerably increase time of setting. Uneven surfaces should be levelled with corresponding materials for plastering or IVSIL floor levelling mixes. In case you need to combine both processes of surface levelling and tilling, use thick layer adhesive IVSIL MAXI PLUS.

   IVSIL PROFIT adhesive for ceramic-granite is certified in European Union according to the standard EN 12004, class C2E! To read more about working with ceramic-granite and about requirements towards ceramic-granite adhesives, please read the article referring IVSIL European certification HERE. The basic price of ceramic-granite adhesive is 312 roubles.

Packaging and storage
The dry adhesive mix is delivered in 25 kg and 5 kg Kraft-bags. A storage warranty period in a dry premise in packaging materials of the manufacturer is 6 months from the date of the manufacturing, specified in packing.
The consumption
Average consumption of a dry mix of 1,3 1,5 kg on 1 2 surfaces at a thickness of a layer of a solution 1. Practically the expense depends on degree of flatness of the base, size of teeth of a spatula and a sort of an applied tile.
