1. PREPARATION STAGE
Application of joint filler should be done after the cement / tile adhesive is dry, in accordance with instructions for each product (minimum 24 hours).
Excessive cement / tile adhesive at the joints should be cleaned.
Make sure the tile joints are clean free of dust.
Moisten the joints with a wet sponge/cloth before application (especially for porous tiles or in hot areas).
2. MIXING STAGE
Mixing weight ratio = 330 ml water : 1 kg AM 50
Volume ratio = 1 part water : 2,5 parts AM 50.
Excessive water may weaken the joints.
Pour AM 50 Powder gradually into mixing bucket containing water.
Mix thoroughly to a paste.
Leave for 5 minutes to allow full activation of the polymer and additive.
3. APPLICATION STAGE
Repeat mixing to a paste before application.
Fill the joints using a clean rubber trowel, applying diagonally. Make sure the joints are firmly filled and smooth.
Clean remaining joint filler from the tile surface, do not re-use.
In half-dry condition, press the joint filler with a joint leveller to obtain a strong and perfect joint.
To increase bonding strength of joint filler in wet conditions or submergend areas, it is recommended to use AM 54 - Joint Filler Strengthening Liquid in place of water in mixing the joint filler.
For best results in water tanks or pools, wait 7 (seven) days after applying before filling with water.
It is recommended to prepare an amoun of mixture, just enough forapplying within 40 - 50 minutes.
Cleaning should be done soon after applying (10 – 20 minutes), before excessive filler dries on the tile surface.
Do not wet tiles during the drying process Floors can be stepped on after 24 hours.
