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 of a swimming pools or showers, a crack, and a recess should be pre-aligned with cemen-based plaster IVSIL GROSS. To correct uneven floors use cement-based self-leveling floors IVSIL TIE-ROD-IIEXPRESS-FINISH or screed IVSIL TIE-ROD-I, EXPRESS-BASIS.

   Before the faceworking the surface of basin or swimming pool must be waterproofed with IVSIL VODOSTOP.

Mixing of mortar

   Dry mix is poured into a mixing bucket with clean water in the following proportion: 1 kg of dry mix for 0,21-0,23 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 4 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 also 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 10 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



   Water resistant tile adhesive for swimming pools IVSIL AQUA is based on high quality cement and fractioned sand, it contains a set pf polymer additives. This tile adhesive is used for tilling of swimming pools, fountains and other reservoirs with water. It can sustain chlorinated water. Its high bonding strength and high resistance towards water guarantees good results of using IVSIL AQUA in the areas of constant contacts with water, including tilling in the areas, which need to sustain water pressure.

   Water resistant and frost resistant tile adhesive IVSIL AQUA can be used together with water resistant grout IVSIL FUGA not only for swimming pool tilling. IVSIL AQUA can be used for tiling with ceramic tiles, natural stone tiles, ceramic-granite tiles in standard conditions and in the conditions of recurring contact with water (shower rooms), including opened areas with a high risk of flooding or recurrent precipitation with the following freezing (terraces, basements). This adhesive can be applied to most of solid basis: concrete, brick, cement walls and floors and also on top of old tiles (technological method of «tile over tile»). The price of tile adhesive for swimming pool tilling can be found in the section of «Price List».

Packaging and storage
The dry adhesive mix is delivered in 25kg 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 1,3 1,5 kg of a dry mix on 1 m. of a sq. surface at a thickness of a layer of a solution of 1 mm. Practically the expense depends on degree of flatness of the base, size of a teeth of a spatula and a sort of an applied tile.
