  1. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of wax, grease, scaly paint and foreign matter. Concrete surfaces must be fully cured (normally 28 days) and free of excessive moisture and alkalinity.
  2. All materials should be at minus 50-degrees for 24 hours before and 48 hours after installation.


Spread adhesive to substrate with trowel recommended for the material being set (see side panel of the container) hold the trowel at a 45-degree angle with the flat side of the trowel to ensure a good mechanical bond. Then re-trowel over by using the properly notched trowel. Apply no more adhesive than can be covered in 15 to 20 minutes depending on temperature and humidity. Press or twist tiles firmly into position (do not slide). Tap tiles with rubber-beating block to assure 100% contact with the adhesive. Do not set tiles after skin has formed.


Under normal conditions wait 24 hours, then grout with SGM formulated wall or floor grouts.
