Webercol Fix | Tile Glue
Webercol fix is a ready-mix cement-based tile adhesive for internal use. Webercol fix is water resistant and has a strong bonding effect.
SCOPE OF USE:
Webercol fix can fix a wide range of ceramic tiles. Can be used to tile directly onto the following substrates: • Concrete • Stone walls (cleaned and prepared) • Cementitious plaster and renders Gypsum substrates are not advisable. Webercol fix can be used for tiling in: • Bathrooms • Regular rooms • Kitchens • Stairs

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE SURFACE PREPARATION:
Substrate must be clean and free from greasy matters or dust. It should have been sufficiently cured in a way that any shrinkage has already occurred. Moisten slightly the substrate if it is dry at the time of application, never moisten the tiles.
Mix fix in the proportion of 5 to 6 liters of clean cool water per 25 kg bag (or 20 kg with 4 to 4.8 liters of water). An electric mixer with low rotation speed (< 300 rpm) can be used. Mix until a uniform lump free paste is obtained. Let the paste rest for a few minutes before starting the application.
Apply Webercol fix evenly on the substrate. Use a notched trowel to have a uniform thickness according to the size of the tile. Apply the tiles on the substrate and press them firmly, while making sure that the paste does not slip from the tile sides. Webercol fix can also be applied on the back of tiles to ensure full adhesion on the entire surface. In case exceptional performance is required, each bag of 25 kg of col fix should be mixed with 1 liter Weberad 225 MB (styrene butadiene latex bonding agent) + 4 liters clean water. For 20 Kg bag Webercol fix, use 1 liter Weberad 225 MB +3 liters of clean water.
Clean the tools with water after use. Cured materials can only be removed mechanically.
Apply col fix on the substrate by areas of around 1m² each, which can be tiled within a maximum of 15 minutes from application time at 20°C. After that time, an outer skin may form thus preventing the tile from adhering properly to Webercol fix. Adjustments to the tiles should only be made during its open time. It is recommended to leave a minimum width of 2 mm around the tiles (or as designed). Grouting the tile joints should only be done at least 24 hours after tiling, using Weberjoint perfect or Weberjoint (Carrojoint).
12 months after manufacturing date in original and non-open packaging, under cover, in dry condition, away from humidity, protected from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.
