Step by Step
Pour Polybit CM 11 into the precisely measured amount of clean water (6L to 6.5L for 25kg bag) and mix with a drill and mixer until a homogenous mass without lumps is reached. Leave for 2 min. and then mix again. Apply the mortar with a suitable notched trowel. For indoor use, the mortar coverage (wetting) on the tile backside must be at least 65%. The floating-buttering method shall be used for larger tiles and for outdoor applications (i.e. additionally a thin layer of the mortar should be spread on the tile’s backside, wetting equal or more than 90%). Place the tiles only during the open time of the adhesive. Do not lay tiles butt jointed! Fresh excess mortar can be removed with water; hardened material can only be removed mechanically. Grouting on the wall can be done after 8 hours and after 24 hours in floor using Polybit grouts. Walkability is reached after 24 hours. Expansion joints, joints at the corners of walls and floor and around sanitary equipment shall be filled with silicone sealant.
