Steel floated concrete floors must be mechanically roughened and washed thoroughly prior to tiling. Prime
concrete with PRIMER AND GROUT ADDITIVE. *KEMGRIP will adhere to most tiles, however when fixing
vitrified or non-porous tiles, additional bond is required by adding 1 litre of KEMCRETE to 20kg of KEMGRIP.
SWIMMING POOLS
Prime surface with a bonding slurry i.e. 1 part KEMCRETE to 2 parts cement.Add 1 litre of KEMCRETE per 20kg
bag KEMGRIP FLOOR & WALL/SUPER.Tile in cool conditions. Grout with KEMGROUT mixed with PRIMER

Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes and restir before use.
APPLICATION
Apply adhesive with a notched trowel (6mm x 6mm for walls and 10mm x 10mm for floors) or butter the back
of tiles 3-5mm thick.The final bed thickness must not be less than 2mm for walls and 3mm for floors. Spread
about 1 metre at a time.Tiles must be set in place while the adhesive is still wet on the surface. Press tiles firmly
into the adhesive using a slight twisting motion.Tiles must be firmly bedded into the adhesive so no voids occur
beneath the tiles.Adjustments can be made up to 20 minutes after fixing.
