Instructions for use

Surface preparation

Surface must be clean and free from greasy matters or dust. Substrate should have been sufficiently cured in a way that any shrinkage has already occurred.Make good any unsound areas and remove flaky or peeling layers before tiling. Moisten slightly the substrate if it is dry at the time of application, never moisten the tiles.

Product preparation

Mix webercol max in the proportion of 3.5 to 3.75 liters of clean cool water per 15kg bag or 4.6 to 5L. per 20kg bag. 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 the adhesive onto the substrate covering up to 1 m2 at a time (or no more than can be tiled within 30 minutes at 20°C). Use a suitable notched trowel to achieve a uniform thickness. Apply the tiles on the substrate and press them firmly, while making sure that the paste does not slip from the tile sides. Large or studded backed tiles may need to have adhesive buttered onto the tile back as well. Leave appropriate clearance joints for grouting and make any adjustments within 10 minutes.

Cleaning

Carefully clean off any excess adhesive from the tiles and joints with a damp cloth or sponge, before it sets.
Clean the tools with water after use. Cured materials can only be removed mechanically.

Precautions

Apply webercol max on the substrate by areas of around 1 m² each, which can be tiled within a maximum of 30 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 max. Adjustments to the tiles should only be made during webercol max 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 deco.

Environmental and Safety

Safety precautions

The product contains cement powders which, when mixed with water, release alkalis that could be harmful to the skin. It is preferable that the application be done in a ventilated area, and to wear protective gear for hands, eyes and respiratory system and to avoid breathing of the dust. Splashes on the skin should be washed away by cleaning with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, wash thoroughly with clean water. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting, in both cases seek medical attention. The product is non-flammable
