Instructions for use

Surface preparation

Surface must be clean, sound, and free from greasy matters and dust. Substrate should have been sufficiently cured in a way that any shrinkage has already occurred. Moisten slightly the substrate if it is dry at the time of application, never moisten the tiles.

Product preparation

Mix the two components of webercol flex by pouring the powder in the liquid progressively while stirring the liquid.
An electric mixer with low rotation speed (< 300 rpm) can be used. Mix until a uniform lump free paste is obtained. Let the paste rest for a few minutes before starting the application.

Product application

Apply webercol flex evenly on the substrate. Use a notched trowel to have a uniform thickness of 2 to 3 mm minimum. Apply the tiles on the substrate and press them firmly,while making sure that the paste does not slip from the tile sides. webercol flex can also be applied on the back of tiles to ensure full adhesion on the entire surface.

Cleaning

Clean the tools with water after use. Cured materials can only be removed mechanically

Precautions

Apply webercol flex on the substrate by areas of around 1m² each, which can be tiled within a maximum of 25 minutes from application time at 20°C. After that time, an outer skin may form thus preventing the tile from adhering properly to weber.col flex. Adjustments to the tiles should only be made during webercol flex’s open time.
It is recommended to leave a minimum width of 2 mm around the tiles.
Grouting the tile joints should only be done at least 24 hours after tiling, using weberjoint perfect or weberjoint (Carrojoint).
For immersed areas, allow 21 days curing for webercol flex before filling with water.
Clean the tools with water after use.

Environmental and Safety
