POWERGIPS

POWERGIPS is the glue for cementing gypsum tiles and other facings in closed spaces. It is characterised by very good adhesion and creates a firm joint. It is especially recommended for gluing the gypsum tiles STONES.

 

PREPARATION OF THE BASE: POWERGIPS can be applied to any firm base such as: concrete, brick, silicate blocks and plates made from cardboard and gypsum. The base must be clean and dry and grounded if necessary.

 

PREPARATION OF THE GLUE: The glue should be tempered in a clean bucket (free from any old glue residue which would case quicker binding). Pour the glue into water (5 kg of glue to 1,9-2,1 litres of water) and mix it accurately by hand or by means of a mixer. Mix it again after approx. 2 min. The glue should be used up in 45 minutes.

 

GLUING: Spread the glue point-wise on the tile edges (to a thickness of approx. 5 min) and while pressing a tile against a wall remove the excessive glue which could obstruct joint pointing.

 

TOOLS: Clean bucket, mixer, and spatula for spreading the glue.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS: Before gluing it is necessary to perform tests in order to eliminate any unforeseen problems which could appear during the whole operation of gluing.

 

STORAGE: The glue should be store in originally closed containers in the dry room for the period of 12 months from the date given on the top of product.
