Preparation
The substrate must be clean and dust free. All contaminants such as friable material, grease and oil should be completely removed.

Pre-soak the substrate but ensure that no standing water remains.

Mixing
SpECtite FXTA is a one-component flexible cementitious tile adhesive C2. 4.75 to 6.00 litres of water are required for each 25kg bag of SpECtite FXTA depending on the consistency required.
Pour the measured volume of water into an appropriately sized plastic or metal drum. The powder should be added to the water slowly whilst mixing with a spiral paddle attached to a slow speed electric drill. Mixing should continue for a minimum of 5 minutes until a uniform, lump free consistency is produced. Allow the product to stand for 15 minutes. Remix for 2 – 3 minutes prior to using.

Application
Apply SpECtite FXTA at a depth of 3 – 6mm into a working area not exceeding 1m².

For ceramic floor tiles, decorative stone cladding and in wet conditions in general, solid-bed fixing is recommended. In other situations, the adhesive may be combed with a notched trowel prior to fixing.

Press the dry tiles into place using a twisting action to ensure good contact with the adhesive. Tapping with a rubber hammer ensures good contact with the adhesive. Remove any excess adhesive from the surface of the tiles with a damp cloth prior to the material setting. For better and full adhesion, apply SpECtite FXTA on back of the tile and the substrate (buttering technique).

Allow the SpECtite FXTA to cure for a minimum of 24 hours before attempting further grouting of joints between ceramic wall/floor tiles. After fixing ceramic floor tiles, no traffic should be allowed for a minimum of 4 days @ 25°C.
SpECtite FXTA is supplied in 25kg packs.
