Limitations to the Product
Do not bond directly to hardwood, Luan plywood, particle board, parquet, cushion or sponge-back vinyl flooring, metal, fiberglass, plastic or OSB panels. Not recommended for

interior and exterior pools and water features. Do not use to install resin-backed stone. Surfaces to be tiled must be structurally sound and subject to deflection not to exceed the current ANSI Standards. Substrates must be sound, free from oil, grease, and sufficiently dry. Cementitious substrates must be cured. Plywood flooring including those under resilient flooring must be structurally sound and meet all ANSI and deflection requirements. Ambient temperature should be maintained above 50° F (10° C) or below 100° F (38° C) for 72 hours to achieve proper bond. Expansion joints must be installed in accordance with local building codes and ANSI/TCNA guidelines. Refer to TCNA EJ171. Plywood floors, including those under resilient flooring, must be structurally sound and must meet all ANSI A108.01 Part 3.4 requirements. Maximum allowable deflection: L/360 tile L/720 stone. See TCNA F150-13 Tile Installations, TCNA F141-13 and F250-13 for Stone.

Curing of Product
Curing time is affected by ambient and surface temperatures and humidity. Use the following as a guideline. Allow 24 hours before grouting and light traffic, and 7-10 days before heavy or vehicular traffic.
