WITH CEMENT BASED POWDER ADHESIVES
Apply a slurry coat - 2 parts
cement and 1 part Tile-Loc (by volume)- to the prepared area and while
the slurry coat is still wet continue to tile in the usual manner. Tile-Loc
can be added to the adhesive mix to obtain a stronger bond. (10% of water
Apply Tile-Loc with a brush to the prepared surface, allows the Tile-Loc to become tacky then continue tiling in the usual manner.
In addition to the normal preparation it may be necessary to use a mechanical scabbler to remove all unsound material, or to etch the concrete with diluted Hydrochloric Acid followed by a thorough washing with clean water to remove all traces of acid. Thoroughly dampen floor prior to application of slurry coat.
Apply a slurry coat - 2 parts cement and 1 part Tile-Loc (by volume) to the prepared area using a stiff broom and continue screeding in the normal manner (while the slurry coat is still wet).
