Surface Preparation

Tiling should be carried out according to the guidelines given in BS5385. Surfaces to be tiled must be clean, dry and sound. Timber floors must be structurally sound and braced securely enough to support the likely load without the risk of excessive deflection. All timber substrates must be dry, sealed on exposed edges and primed with EVERBUILD SBR BOND diluted 1:4 with water and allowed to dry before tiling. Floorboards must be screwed to joists and free from all obvious deflection prior to tiling. Timber boarding must be exterior/­marine grade or waterproof rated, 15mm minimum thickness and screwed, not nailed to sub floor at no less than 150mm centres. All boards must be level, free from all release coatings and showing no edge protrusions. An expansion gap of 0.5-1mm must be left between boards and around perimeter of room to allow for subsequent expansion. For large floors, expansion joints must be fitted in line with recom­men­dations given in BS5385.

Cement based substrates should be primed with EVERBUILD SBR BOND as detailed above. Screeds must be a minimum of 4 weeks old and be protected by an effective damp proof course. Level uneven screeds with EVERBUILD SELF LEVEL FLOOR COMPOUND and allow to dry.


As an adhesive: Stir adhesive well before use. Substrates must be porous. Do not apply below 5`C.(surface or ambient tempe­ratures). Apply using flooring grade board notched trowel (10mm x 10mm notch at 16mm centres) to give an even ribbed bed of adhesive on substrate. Bed the tiles directly into the surface of the adhesive and secure with a slight twist action to remove voids. It is good practice to periodically remove a tile and check that at least 75% of the tile is covered in adhesive and that the adhesive bed is no more than 3mm thick, otherwise adhesive will not achieve its full cured strength. If this is not the case, remove old and apply fresh adhesive and reposition. Do not comb out more than ca. 1m2 of adhesive at a time. Always position tiles within 10 minutes of combing adhesive onto sub floor, ie before adhesive skins over. . Clean all adhesive residues on surface of tile within 10mins. Do not walk on floors after tiling for 24 hours minimum or until adhesive has set. For cool, low porosity surfaces, this may be up to 72 hours.
