AREAS OF USE
It is used for installing ceramic tiles, natural stone tiles and similar materials with normal absorption (Class BII, BIII) for interior, exterior and especially wet spaces (kitchens, bathrooms, wine cellars, basements, garages). It is applied on cement underlay such as: concrete, lightweight concrete, porous concrete, cement plasters, lime plasters, old plasters, cement screeds and underlays (with cement or dispersion). Combined with Weber.tec 822 underlay and Weber.color comfort or Weber.color will form the ideal underlay system for Weber.Hydro Basic.
PREPARING THE UNDERLAY
The underlay must be clean, non-deformable, dry, free of anti-adhering substances (grease, bitumen, dust etc.). Concretes must be cured, the screeds must have minimum 28 days curing period and plasters must have medium absorption. Layers with poor mechanical strength will be removed in advance. Irregularities up to 1 cm can be fixed with Weber.set H20 one day before cladding. The faces of the ceramic tiles must be clean, free from traces of grease, oil, dust or other impurities. If the underlay is treated with deep primer Weber GR100 prior to cladding, you should allow it to dry it completely.
PREPARATION AND DIRECTION OF USE
Pour the contents of a bag into approx. 6.5 - 7 liters of clean, cold water and mix with an electric mixer until a homogeneous mixture is obtained, without agglomeration. Leave it like this for approx. 5 minutes, then mix again. The resulting adhesive mortar is applied on the underlay using a grooved trowel. If the support is uneven, the adhesive will be applied to both the underlay and the tile. Tiles are attached to the contact surface by hand pressing, moving them onto the adhesive layer (if necessary using a rubber mallet) until a flat surface is obtained. Tiles should be laid in the adhesive layer within open time (before the crust forms on the surface of the adhesive). For ensuring a suitable contact surface, the adhesive must cover at least 65% of the back of tile for interior cladding and minimum 90% for exterior cladding. The joints will be grouted after minimum 24 hours, using the Weber.color grout range.
Apply the adhesive when the air and underlay temperature is between + 5 °C to + 30 °C; bad weather (rain, snow, strong wind, direct exposure to sunlight) should be avoided. Cladded surfaces will be protected against frost for 24 hours. Fresh mortar will be removed from the cured surfaces and joints during application, using clean water. Surfaces can be used after minimum 24 hours and can be exposed to medium stress after approx. 7 days. The used tools are washed with water immediately after use.
