This adhesive is not waterproof, however as long as you "tank" your bathroom with water resistant panels, such as Aqua Panels (product code 224658) and seal your Natural Stone Tiles with our Tile Sealer (product code 166071). This providing an adequate seal.

This product can be laid on plywood, the plywood would need to be at least 18mm thick and would not require sealing if you are using a water resistant plywood/exterior plywood (although you will need to seal any cuts made in the plywood).

You would need to use a 10-12mm notched trowel to get a 3-6 mm bed of this adhesive.

You can use our Tile Adhesive over existing tiles; however you will need to rough up the existing tiles so the adhesive can adhere to them. In order to achieve the best finish, the old tiles should be removed and the surface prepared.

Check out our Good Ideas Leaflet 37 for further information.

The weight and size of tiles you could use would depend more on the surface they are being used on rather than the adhesive. As a general rule plaster will take 20kg per m2 whilst plasterboard will take 32kg per m2. This would include the weight of the tiles and the weight of the adhesive.

The product is not suitable for use as a grout. We would recommend using our floor & wall tile grout which is cement based grout.

The recommended adhesive to use with these tiles is natural stone and porcelain tile adhesive.

Question
How to mix the product
I am buying some Flexible Rapid Setting Tile Adhesive 206-964 to use over my underfloor heating prior to putting ceramic tiles on top. I have been advised that this is the best product but to mix in to a pouring consistency. Please would you advise the mixing ratio to water for this purpose and how much it should cover at 6mm deep?
