It should be ensured that the reinforced concrete or plastered surface are totally cured, free of residues that will prevent adhesion and sound. If there are defects on the application surface, it should be repaired with 4001 Tamirart 5 or 4002 Tamirart 30 repair mortars. If there are structural cracks on the surface, 4004 Tamirart S40 should be used. Rough surfaces should be levelled with 4201 Mastar 10 self-levelling screed. Extremely absorbent surfaces should be moistened or 4505 Kalekim Astar (Primer) should be applied before application.
Tiling and Grouting
When bonding thin and large-sized ceramics, the combined method (both the application of the adhesive to the back and on the surface of the coating material) should be applied and the expansion joints should be left in large areas while avoiding the application of very little joint gaps in order to get a long-lasting application. Two-component, high-performance, highly flexible 1069 Technolight adhesive mortar should be used for the bonding thin and large size ceramic tiles (3mm-5mm). 1069 Technolight allowing to proceed with grouting by setting extra fast in 3 hours, is a cement based adhesive that provides the solution for bonding of the coating materials featuring fiber glass bearing nets at the back. In grouting applications, flexible material should be used just like in adhesives. 2500 Ultrafuga Flex is not only dirt resistant thanks to its water repellency brought by its silicone content, but also contributes to a long term use thanks to its flexibility.
In expansion joints, polyurethane based sealant 8021 Kalepolymas grouting offers ideal application and usage. In this way, the whole system will achieve full compliance with all kinds of ground movements.
