Follow the mixing and application procedure laid down. Use Expansion Joints . Tile Installations need an expansion joint to compensate for a natural movement that occurs within tile assemblies. Provide expansion joints as such - 10m in external applications 25m in internal applications The need to call for suitable mechanical safety anchoring must be evaluated by the designer for coverings with > 30 cm side. For coverings with > 60 cm, add to the mixing water a percentage of Adhesive admix to assess the function of the thermo-dynamic strain provided by the structure. Always apply a layer of adhesive directly on the back of the tile/stone as well as on the substrate Do not use the adhesive to correct surface irregularities greater than 12 mm. Save from harm due to direct rainfall for at least 24 hrs. The temperature, ventilation and absorption of the surface and covering materials to be fixed may cause variations in the adhesive workability and setting times. Use the right size of toothed trowel for application. NOTE* : 'An expansion joint or movement joint is an assembly designed to hold parts together while safely absorbing temperature-induced expansion and contraction of building materials, and vibration, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or seismic activity
