PALACE ALL WEATHER is a white cement-based, thin-bed ceramic tile adhesive, which conforms to BS EN 12004 Type C, Class 1T and is suitable for fixing semi-porous ceramic and natural stone FLOOR and WALL tiles in interior & exterior locations. PALACE ALL-WEATHER offers an economical means of fixing semi-porous tiles onto solid, stable masonry surfaces and securely fixed & suitably rated Tile Backer boards. PALACE ALL-WEATHER gives excellent compatibility & bond strength with concrete, cement render & cement screed surfaces, whilst providing excellent water resistance. PALACE ALL-WEATHER WHITE is particularly recommended when fixing light coloured semi-porous natural stone such as Marble and Travertine.
- Fully water-resistant for Interior & Exterior use
- Excellent non-slip with extended pot-life > 4 hours
- Fixes ceramic, mosaic & natural stone tiles to semi-porous surfaces
- For fixing to heated sub-floors & areas subject to heavy traffic
- For use in pools, showers & wet areas including under full immersion
The substrate must be clean, firm and free of dust, dirt, oil, grease and lose flaking coatings. They must also be structurally sound and strong enough to support the weight of the tiles being fixed. PALACE ALL-WEATHER can be applied to dry or damp surfaces however moisture-sensitive materials must be dry and remain dry after fixing. Worn or porous masonry surfaces should be sealed with PALACE TILERS PRIMER] diluted as 1 to 3 with water. PALACE ALL-WEATHER can be applied to cement-based Tile Backer boards over-laid onto a fully rigid structure, such as well-braced 15mm waterproof ply-board screw fixed at 300mm centres to supporting battens. Do not apply onto bare, un-sealed gypsum plaster or anhydrite floor screed before first priming this type surface with two coats of neat PALACE TILERS PRIMER the first diluted 1 to 1 and the second neat.
PALACE ALL-WEATHER should be added to water in a clean container whilst mechanically stirring and mixed thoroughly to give a soft, slump-free, easily worked mortar. The recommended mixing proportions by volume are 1-part water to 3 parts powder [5 litres per 20kg sack of powder or the equivalent weight ratio]. The consistency of the paste can be adjusted with slight additions of water or powder at the initial mixing stage, however, the part-used adhesive should never be “freshened up” with later water. PALACE ALL-WEATHER will remain useable for about 4 hours and should not be applied in temperatures below 5’C. In ideal conditions (20’C), this thin bed adhesive will set after about 12 to 16 hours.
For fixing ceramic tiles or mosaics, use a notched trowel to give a ribbed mortar bed on the substrate, into which the tiles are firmly bedded with a twist and slide action to ensure full contact. Use a 3mm x 3mm notch at 6mm centres for mosaics and thin flat-backed wall tiling, a 5mm x 5mm notch at 10mm centres for general wall tiling and 10mm x 10mm notch at 16mm centres for floor tiling. The position of the tiles can be adjusted up to 10 minutes after initial fixing. The open time of the exposed mortar bed is approximately 30 minutes, depending on surface porosity and site temperatures. It is recommended that tiles with raised or studded back profiles, (or in situations where dampness is likely after tiling), should be back-buttered to ensure solid bed fixing. Do not trowel out an area of adhesive greater than can be tiled over within a 10-minute period. Surfaces, such as tamp-rutted concrete and masonry block-work, that are rough or uneven should be prepared with PALACE SELF-LEVEL floor smoothing & levelling compound and when sufficiently firm (24 – 48 hours later), followed by an application of PALACE ALL-WEATHER adhesive. Do not apply any cement-based adhesive onto bare, unsealed gypsum plaster or anhydrite screeds and do not allow adhesive residues to set & harden on the tile face. Do not mix or apply this adhesive when air or ground temperatures are forecast to be below 5’C or greater than 35’C at any time during the first 24 hours after application.
When fixing on a level, even surface using a 10mm notched trowel, PALACE ALL-WEATHER will cover at a rate of about 4kg per sq. meter for heavy-duty, studded tiles. When applying wall tiles, the product will cover at about 2.5 kg per sq. meter.
Grouting may proceed as soon as the tile bed is sufficiently firm, which for PALACE ALL-WEATHER will be after at least 24 hours at room temperature. This period however will be extended in cold conditions. When the adhesive is fully set, wall & floor joints can be grouted using PALACE COLOUR-LOCK GROUT or PALACE ANTI-MOULD GROUT, however, on wider flooring applications, joints of up to 20mm wide can be grouted using PALACE WIDE JOINT FLEXI FLOOR TILE GROUT.
