Application Information
Instructions for use


Add to the mixing container 6-6.5 liters of water for each 20 Kg bag of Vetoset CA540. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical mixer or low speed heavy duty electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes, until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved.


Apply a thin layer of the adhesive onto the substrate using the flat edge of the trowel. Comb the adhesive with a suitable notched trowel horizontally to achieve a bed thickness of 2 - 5 mm. Place the tiles with firm pressure to ensure proper contact with the adhesive.

It is always better to work in a manageable area that can be tiled within the open time of the adhesive. Leave the tiled surfaces for 24 hours before grouting.

If more deformability is needed to reach S2 specifications, the mixing water is either completely replaced or partially replaced by 2.5 liters of Vetobond AB432 depending on the flexibility needed.


Tools and equipment can be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened materials will require removal by mechanical means.

Surface Preparation

Substrate should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt, curing compound, or any other substance that might impair the quality of bond with the substrate. 

Concrete, hollow blocks and cement based substrates must be sufficiently cured and irrigated by water 1hour prior to application. Gypsum boards, plaster boards, anhydrite screeds, must be sufficiently dry and free from dust. These substrates must be primed with Vetobond AB432.

Any skin contact should be washed with soap and water. In case of eyes irritation, immediately wash with copious amount of clean cold water. Seek medical advice.
