Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Consideration

  • Do not apply at temperature below 5ºC.
  • For heavy traffic areas, it is good practice to back butter the tile back surfaces with the adhesive to ensure 100% coverage.
  • For large format and heavy tiles where the weight of the tiles cannot be supported by the adhesive, the installation method shall follow a bottom-up approach, and If more than two rows of tiles are to be fixed simultaneously, the tiles are to be mechanically supported using temporary anchor nails in between tile gaps or by using inclined support stud.

Mixing

Add to the mixing container 10-11 liters of water for each 50 Kg bag of Vetoset CA541. 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. Vetobond AB432 can be used to enhance the performance of the product and reach S2 classification.

Application

Apply a 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 4- 20 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.


Cleaning

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.

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.
