Eagle Bond Universal Thin-Set Mortar Français
Description
EAGLE BOND is an high quality thin-set mortar that only needs water to install all types of natural stones and tiles on inside concrete surfaces. This thin-set is formulated for ceramic tiles, vitrified or not, either on horizontal or vertical surfaces. Excellent for residential and light commercial applications. Mixed with its polymer EAGLE BOND PLUS, it will give the highest results in the industry for interior or exterior installations of natural stone, glass, porcelain and ceramic tiles, etc. EAGLE BOND gives an excellent adhesion on more demanding jobs. Take note that rigorous attention must be taken to execute surface preparation conform to trade practices and Eagle Black’s surface preparation guidelines.
Surface Preparation
All surfaces shall be structurally sound, clean and free from traces of dust, oil, grease, paint, curing agent, coatings and loose particles. They must also be exempt from any trace of acids, alkalis or any other material that can reduce adhesion. When Eagle Bond is mixed with Eagle Bond Plus, the only recommended wood substrate for residential floors is exterior grade plywood installed in an interior dry area. All concrete substrates shall be completely cured and at least 28 days old, free from hydrostatic conditions and/or extreme humidity problems. Remove completely all traces of paint, coating, loosely bonded toppings. Ambient surface and product temperature must be superior than 10ºC (50ºF) and lower than 35ºC (95ºF) during the installation and for the first 24 hours.
Application
Spread and scratch mortar with flat edge of trowel. Quickly add mortar and use notched side , spread mortar uniformly, taking care to trace ridge lines in the same straight line direction. Prepare only the quantity that can be apply in less than 15 minutes. If ridges have slightly dried and there is skin formation at the surface, there will be no adherence, mortar will have to be removed and a fresh coat applied. Press tiles firmly with a back and forth motion across ridges to obtain full mortar transfer at the back of tiles at 1/3 of their thickness in mortar. Never wet tiles prior to their application, if so, it must be advised by tile manufacturer.
Mixing
In a clean container, pour exactly 330 ml of Eagle Bond Plus or 260 ml of fresh and clean water per kg of Eagle Bond by adding gradually the powder while mixing with a low-speed drill and mixer. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes scraping recipient walls and paddle to obtain a homogeneous trowelable consistency. Let mortar sit for 10 minutes, than remix without adding any more water or powder. Apply immediately. Occasionally remix while using it, with no water addition.
