TAL BOND should be used in place of water in cementitious powder adhesives and grout in the following
applications: areas subjected to thermal stresses, exterior and/or exposed areas, high traffic areas,
flexible backgrounds, swimming pools, showers, all permanently wet areas, coldrooms, and areas where
temperature changes are expected.
Replace the water fraction in the adhesive and grout mix with TAL BOND. (Refer to adhesive and grout
packaging instructions for correct mix ratios.)
Any water added to TAL BOND dilutes the polymer and will weaken the mix strength. Always
add the cementitious adhesive or grout to TAL BOND while mixing, and mix until a smooth, lump-free
paste is obtained.
(Note that the grout colour may become slightly darker with the addition of TAL BOND.)
Wipe the area with a DAMP (not wet) sponge before the adhesive or grout has dried. (See
manufacturer’s instructions for drying times.) Clean tools with water before the product dries.
