*Mix Tile Mate Floor & Wall with Bostik 425™ Multi-Purpose Acrylic Latex Admixture.
Apply a thin coat of Bostik Tile-Mate Floor & Wall with the flat edge of trowel to achieve a good mechanical bond to the substrate. Comb additional mortar with the appropriate size notched trowel. If any evidence of skinning or setting occurs, remove and re-apply fresh mortar. Apply mortar to an area no greater than can be tiled in 20 to 30 minutes. Apply tile using a twisting motion into a fresh bed of mortar to ensure maximum contact and bond. Periodically check back of tile to ensure proper transfer (interior applications—minimum 80% coverage; exterior, wet, or plywood applications—minimum 95% coverage). Temperatures must be between 50°F (10°C)-100°F (37.8°C) during installation.
