How to use

Surfaces

Cement/sand rendering, brickwork, concrete and aerated concrete. Paper-faced plaster boards, fibre-reinforced plaster boards. Timber boards in dry locations.

Surface preparation

The surface should be dimensionally stable, sound, and clean. Free from laitance, grease, and dust. There should be no blooms or crack formations. Residues from grease or soap can be removed with Alfix Deep Cleaner.
On absorbent surfaces apply Alfix Primer (Sealing Primer) or Alfix PlaneMixPrimer.

How to use

Apply Alfix ReadyFlex to the surface with a notched trowel, using the straight edge to spread out adhesive and subsequently the notched edge to produce a ribbed bed.

Fix tiles within 15 - 20 minutes by pressing them firmly into position in the wet adhesive with a slight twisting action. Ensure complete adhesive coverage!

When fixing marble, apply a thin contact layer to the back of the tiles before pressing them into the adhesive.

NB!

When used on dense surfaces or for non-absorbent tiles, setting time is extended.
Either surface or tile should be absorbent to ensure proper curing.
Switch off any underfloor heating.

Cleaning

Clean adhesive residues from tools and tiles with water before the adhesive sets. Once set, the paste can be removed mechanically or with solvent.
