Tips & Usage

USES
For installation of:

  • Ceramic tile
  • Brick Pavers
  • Quarry Tile
  • Cement Tile
  • Clay Tile

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. Where possible, substrates should be hosed or pressure-washed. Substrates should be even to optimize the coverage of Micro Milling Thin Set.

MIXING
Best results are achieved by mixing with a paddle whisk so as to activate all the ingredients of the Thin Set. Hand mixing can be used with water at the approximate strength of 3.5 litres per bag added until a smooth consistent mixture is achieved. Please note: do not use hot water; it will accelerate the mortar. Once the 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 15-20 minutes or before surface dries, place tiles with a twisting motion and firmly tap tiles in with a rubber mallot to ensure 100% coverage. Industry standards require approximate 3/32" to 1/8" mortar bed thickness after tapping in. A 1/4" 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.

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

CURING
Minimum cure is reached in 24 hours. Traffic should be restricted to 72 hours. Setting and drying time may vary according to atmospheric conditions.

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

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