Application

Apply FAP Cermofix to a uniform thickness of 3 mm to 6 mm on the support to cover the slots on the back of the tiles on an area of not more than 1m2 at a time. For horizontal applications a solid bed fix is recommended as well as for heavy duty vertical applications. For other vertical applications use a toothed spatula to comb horizontally to remove excess. The trowel should have 6 mm notches at 25 mm intervals centre to centre. Apply the tile, press it, and smooth out carefully so that the mortar is spread evenly. If the bonding is perfect, the tile will not slide. The joint can be filled with FAP Tile Joint.
