Perma Marble Tile Adhesive

PRIMARY USES

Perma Marble Tile Adhesive (MTA) is especially developed for fixing marble slabs and tiles. Marble is generally loose grained and has a porous structure. Ordinary adhesives and grey cements have a tendency to leach into the marble surface with time and stain the surface. Because of this reason even the best selected marble shows the signs of becoming dull and grey and yellow very soon. Perma Marble Tile Adhesive not only helps in scientific fixing of the marbles, but also helps in maintaining the same luster of marble for years and years. Perma Marble Tile Adhesive makes the tiled area waterproof.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Ensure that the surface to be tiled is clean and free from dust, dirt, grease etc. Mix MTA with clean water in the proportion of 3.5 volumes of powder to 1 volume of water. Mix till a uniform consistency, smooth white paste is obtained. Leave the paste for ten minutes in the pan for the entrapped air if any, to escape and remix the paste. Apply the paste uniformly on to the surface to be tiled as well as on the back of the marble and press the marble in position. While using MTA wetting of the marbles or the surface to be tiled or curing is not required. Fill the tile joints with Uniwhite Perma C-Tone Filler after 24 hours of tile laying.
