Step by Step

Preparation and mixing

CE 47 adheres to all solid, load-bearing, clean and dry surfaces free of substances which can cause separation. The surface, thin-bed mortar or bedding mortar must have set sufficiently hard, and joints must have been uniformly scraped. CE 47 is supplied in two components in either a single container or two seperate containers. Add hardener (component B) to the base solution component A) and mix with an electric drill and mixer attachment at approx. 400-800 rpm until completely free of lumps. It is absolutely necessary to lift off the complete tin lid, using e.g. a screwdriver or trowel, and to scrape the hardener (component B) with a spreader or trowel completely out of the upper into the lower container (component A = resin) where the 2 components are mixed until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. When using only partial amounts, it is necessary to remove them by scraping from the two containers. Afterwards they can be closed again. Ensure a uniform, homogeneous colour of the mixture.

Application

Screeding technique: Apply the CE 47 mixture with an epoxy grouting board to the dry and clean ceramic coverings, filling the joints completely and without any cavities. Then remove any excess material by skimming it diagonally off the tile surface. 

Cleaning

Emulsify any access CE 47 on the tile surface by making circular movements with a coarse sponge pad and very little water. Wipe off the resulting slurry with a soft sponge (hydro sponge). Then wipe again using a clean, soft sponge and very little water. Frequently rinse the sponge in clean water. Do not begin cleaning the surface before CE 47 has started to set. For final cleaning wait at least 3 but no more than 6 hours to remove the remaining film from the tile surface with a soft sponge. Cleaning is facilitated if approx. 10 % spirit is added to the cleaning water. Warm water also facilitates cleaning.
