Premium 2600 Thin Set (Available in White & Grey)

Micro Milling Premium 2600 Thin Set is a blend of Portland Cement, Graded Sand and Special additives (Including redispersible polymers which are designed to improve adhesion, reduce water absorption, provide greater bond strength and enhanced resistance to shock and impact). It is an economically priced, premium thin set designed to be used with porcelain tile, glass and marble tiles which require greater bond strength. It is manufactured to meet the Tile Council of America’s American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard A118.4.

Coverage

This will vary according to the thickness of the tile bed required but using a ¼" x ¼" notched trowel on an evenly prepared surface a 22.5 kg/50lb bag will cover 30–50 square feet.

Tips & Usage

USES
For Installation of:

  • Porcelain tiles
  • Ceramic tiles
  • Brick Pavers
  • Quarry tiles
  • Cement tiles
  • Glass tiles
  • Marble

PREPARATION
The surfaces to be tiled should be dry, free from dirt, dust or curing compounds, and other loose or weak material that could affect a bond. Concrete substrates should be allowed to cure for 28 days. Where possible, substrates should be hosed or pressure-washed. Substrates should be even to optimize the coverage of Micro Milling Thin Set.

MIXING
Micro Milling Premium2600 Thin Set should be added to clean, cool, potable water at the rate of approximately 4.75 liters (5 US quart) per 22.68 kg (50 lb) bag. Mix thoroughly until smooth and let mortar slake for 5 minutes, then remix. If a mechanical mixer is used, it must be done at a low RPM (300 or less) to avoid entrapping air into the mortar. Do not add water or additional powder after slaking period. The proper mortar consistency is such that when applied with a notched trowel to the substrate, the ridges formed in the mortar will not flow or slump. Do not use mortar after initial set in bucket. During use, remix mortar occasionally.

Please note: do not use hot water; it will accelerate the mortar. Once the premium thin set is mixed properly, never be tempted to add additional water.

APPLICATION
Apply mortar liberally with flat side of trowel, using sufficient pressure to work mortar in good contact. Use proper sized notched trowel to ensure 100% coverage of mortar under tiles. Place tiles while surface is still wet and tacky. Spread only as much mortar as can be covered in 5-10 minutes or before surface dries. Place the tiles firmly into the wet mortar. Push the tiles back and forth in a direction perpendicular to trowel lines, to collapse the mortar ridges and to help achieve maximum coverage. Industry standards require approximately 3/32" to 1/8"mortar bed thickness after tapping in. A ¼"gap shall be left around all vertical surfaces to allow for structural movement.

Follow ANSI 108.5 specifications for installation. Normal grouting can be done 48 hours after installation.

EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS
Provide for expansion and control joints as specified per TCNA Detail EJ171

CURING
Minimum cure is reached in 24 hours. Heavy Traffic should be restricted to 7 days. Setting and drying time may vary according to atmospheric conditions.

PACKAGING
Micro Milling Premium 2600 Thin Set is packaged in 50lb (22.5 kg) multiwall paper sacks with a moisture barrier within to ensure longer shelf life.

STORAGE & SHELF LIFE
Store in dry conditions, off the ground in well-ventilated areas for the best life expectancy—up to six (6) months from the date of manufacture in unopened containers.

CLEAN UP
Clean hands and tools with warm soapy water before materials dry.

CAUTION
During mixing or application avoid contact with eyes and skin. In case of contact with eyes rinse repeatedly with water and call physician. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not take internally.

WARNING
Contains free silica. Do not breathe dust. May cause delayed lung injury (silicosis). Follow OSHA safety and health standards for crystalline silica (quarts).
