APPLICATION OF PRO GRIP FX WHITE:
Apply the adhesive to the required thickness (limits 3mm – 20mm) in areas up to 1 square metre at a time. For internal walls use a notched trowel to the following notch dimensions to provide solid rib lines:
Mosaic tiles: 3mm x 3mm at 6mm centres
General wall tiles: 5mm x 5mm at 10mm centres
General floor tiles: 8mm x 8mm at 16mm centres
For floors and external applications we advise to use the solid bed method. This involves applying a uniform bed of adhesive to the floor and buttering the back of the tile with the same adhesive. When the tiles are bedded with a twisting action, pressing firmly down it ensures 100% contact is made with both the floor and the tile.
When fitting tiles leave spaces between each of the tiles to allow for grouting (approx: walls 1mm – 3mm and floors 2mm – 12mm). Before the tile adhesive sets clean off the excess adhesive from the face of the tile and grout joints with a clean damp cloth or sponge.

POINTS OF NOTE:
The curing period for cement based tile adhesives will be affected by extremes in temperature. High temperature site conditions will increase the speed of cure therefore reducing the pot life and set times. Low temperatures will reduce the speed of cure extending the pot life and set times. It is therefore good practice to consider site conditions and storage of materials as essential factors in planning tiling installations.
All UltraTileFix adhesives are manufactured to meet the performance requirements of BS EN 12004 and the relevant classifications.
UltraTileFix would always advise that tiling installers follow the guidelines for tiling as laid down in BS EN5385. It is essential that expansion joints are built into the design of the tiling installation in order to prevent tension build up. This is a common occurrence which can result in tiles de-bonding.
