GUIDE FOR APPLICATION
Surface Preparation 
Prepare a good clean structural surface for bonding by removing all loose materials or disintegrated concrete, traces of oil greases, curing compounds, etc. should be removed by chipping out the affect (areas of concrete and finally sweep or blow off the surface so as to remove dust which will prohibit proper bonding.
Steel surfaces should be cleaned and free from any rust.
 
Mixing
The components of base and hardener shall be mixed until a uniform consistency is achieved; the filler is added gradually while mixing using a slow speed drill fitted with a mixing paddle until a uniform consistency is achieved.
 
APPLICATIONS 
The mixed adhesive paste should be spread over the surface using a serrated trowel. The tile shall be fixed during the open time.
 
PACKAGING
POLYTILE EP is supplied in 10kg pack consisting of the three components: Component A (Resin), Component B (curing agents), and Component C (filler). 
STORAGE
 
POLYTILE EP should be stored in dry warehouse away from any extreme temperatures.
 
SHELF LIFE
One year in unopened containers.
 
Equipment care
