Application Guidelines:

Surface Preparation:

  • All Surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned using stiff brush to remove dust and loose particles, paint residues, wood pieces and molds, Oily stains, grease, etc.
  • Concrete Surfaces should be properly cured with water before fixing tiles.
  • All Surfaces Should be pre-wet to ensure no moisture be absorbed from this Tile Adhesive during application.


  • It should be mixed with clean potable water only.
  • Mixing should be done in a clean plastic or non-corrosive metal bucket.
  • An electric mixer with low rotation speed (200-300 rpm) is preferred to achieve a good and homogeneous mix.
  • Mixing ratio is around 4.0 – 4.5 Liters of water per 20 Kg which can be adjusted as per site application conditions.
  • Mixing is to be done until a uniform lump free paste is obtained.
  • Once mixed allow the mix to rest for about 5 minutes and to be re-mixed again before commencing the application.
  • Care should be taken that further water should not be added to the mix once set. Also Hard and set paste should not be remixed or reused.


  • Apply TA11 evenly on the substrate with a uniform thickness using a notched trowel according to the size of the tile.
  • Apply the Tiles onto the Adhesive bed with a slipping movement with enough pressure to ensure all tile surface is in contact with adhesive bed.
  • Always follow the pattern of fixing Tiles from bottom to top.
  • Keep proper Tile Spacers between the tiles, once fixed.
  • TA11 is recommended to apply this on the substrate by areas of < 1 m² each which need to be tile fixed within a maximum of 10 minutes from application time at standard conditions. Spreading large areas of application without fixing tiles may lead to drying of the adhesive before tile fixing and eventually may reduce its bonding capability.
  • Upon finishing, excess adhesive need to be removed with wet cloth before it dries.


  • Care should be taken not to use set adhesive or remix with water.
  • Ensure to not use it on metal, gypsum boards, plasters boards and other non-absorbing surfaces.
  • It is preferable to make sure to clean the surface well before applying the adhesive bed as it contributes to final adhesion strength.
  • Refrain from application during rain, unstable weather conditions or under direct sun light.


  • Shelf Life: 12 Months from date of manufacture if covered well and stored in pallets, away from heat, Sun light and moisture.
  • Care should be taken that hard & lumpy materials are not to be used.

Health & Safety:

TA11 contains cement which becomes strongly alkaline upon mixing with water and this may cause skin irritation when exposed for very long time. Avoid contact with eyes and inhalation of dust. In case of skin/eyes contact, wash with plenty of clean water and seek medical attention immediately. It is highly recommended to use all relevant Personal Protective Equipment while handling it and work in well ventilated conditions while applying it. Keep out from the reach of children.
