TILELOC No More Chipping Away At Painted Or Smooth Surfaces To ‘Key’ Them!

Ever had the frustration of trying to get rid of old tiles that have been cemented in? Don’t spend hours wasting time, just use TileLoc®. TileLoc® is a specially formulated additive that is easy to mix into a cement and plaster sand slurry. This is then applied onto the smooth and solid surface (old tiles) that will be tiled over, leaving a rough finish that will easily hold tile cement and tiles.

MIX CEMENT & SAND

TILED OVER OLD TILES!

MIX SLURRY

• Once the TileLoc® slurry is applied to the surface you want to tile, merely wait for it to dry and tile as normal. • The adhesion quality of TileLoc® will ensure a strong grip that will last as long as the substrate does! Here’s how it is done: • Mix cement with plaster sand • Add TileLoc® and mix thoroughly into a slurry • Brush mixture onto surface with block brush • Wait to dry • Tile over application • For an even stronger adhesion, mix TileLoc® with your tile cement • Always test for subtrate integrity! NB: • Surfaces should be free of loose particles, scaling or flaking material prior to applying slurry.

APPLY SLURRY

• Wire brush and rinse if necessary!

TileLoc®

Available in 1, 5 and 25 Litres
