PALACE EASI–SET will fix ceramic, porcelain, vitrified and natural stone tiles and its’ extended pot life gives the fixer more working time when setting out mosaics & complex tiling patterns. PALACE EASI-SET meets the performance requirements of EN12004 C2TE-S1 and its’ polymer fortified flexibility develops the adhesion strength necessary for areas where slight movement or vibration is anticipated including over floors where sub-floor heating is installed and when fixing impermeable surfaces such as porcelain & vitrified tiles.
- Standard-setting with an enhanced 2-hour working pot-life
- Setting time allows walk & grouting to proceed after 6 hours
- Fixes vitrified, porcelain & natural stone tiles in wall & floor locations
- For fixing tiles over all types of heated sub-floor
- For Interior & Exterior & fully immersed locations
Surface Preparation: The substrate must be clean, firm and free of dust, dirt, oil, grease and loose flaking coatings. It must also be structurally sound and strong enough to support the expected traffic loading. PALACE EASI–SET can be applied to dry or damp surfaces however moisture-sensitive materials must be dry and remain dry after fixing. Worn or porous surfaces should be sealed with PALACE TILERS PRIMER] diluted as 1 to 3 with water. PALACE EASI– SET can be applied to Tile Backer boards over-laid onto a suitably rigid structure, such as well-braced 15mm waterproof ply-board screw fixed at 300mm centres to supporting battens. Applications over sub-floor heating should allow 28 days before switching the heat on. PALACE EASI–SET is not recommended for application directly onto tongue and groove timber floorboards or floating plywood floors. 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.
Mix Preparation: PALACE EASI–SET 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 (Approximately 5 litres per 20kg sack). 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 additions but should always be discarded once it appears to lose its’ workability. In ideal conditions (20’C room temperature), PALACE EASI–SET will remain workable for up to 2 hours at 20’C and then reach the final set after 6 hours, sufficiently well cured to permit grout application on both walls & floors.
Application Method: 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 open time of the exposed mortar bed is up to 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 30-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 EASI–SET adhesive. Do not apply any cement-based adhesive onto bare, unsealed gypsum plaster or anhydrite screeds. 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.
Coverage: When fixing on a level, even surface using a 10mm notched trowel, PALACE EASI–SET will cover at a rate of about 4.0 kg 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: Grouting may proceed as soon as the tile bed is sufficiently firm, which for PALACE EASI–SET will be after 6 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.
Storage & Packaging: PALACE EASI–SET is supplied in 20kg multi-ply, moisture-resistant paper sacks and has a storage life of not less than 12 months if stored in dry, unopened conditions.
