Using adhesives

Ensure you follow the directions on the adhesive’s packaging efficiently. Using a trowel with a notch size of 1.5x5m, spread the adhesive evenly. Avoid using trowels which are worn as rusted metal can get lodged into the adhesive and it will not work effectively.
For use of adhesive on tile, use a 45kg roller immediately after laying and prior to the adhesive setting completely. The timeline of this process will depend on the scale of the areas you are applying the adhesive to.
