Tiling Directly Onto Timber Floors

  1. Make sure the background is clean, dry, flat, and strong enough to support the tiling
  2. Roll the Permalayer matting out and cut to size
  3. Now you’re ready to start mixing the adhesive to lay the mat. Pour cold water into a mixing bucket to the required level for the weight of powder. Stir as you go to make a smooth, lump free consistency. Only mix the amount of adhesive that you will be able to use within 30 minutes
  4. Apply a thin layer of adhesive over the floor. Firmly press the matting into the adhesive with the smooth side of a trowel,  making sure the adhesive is keyed into the mat
  5. The adhesive should show through to the surface of mat
  6. Leave to dry. Once dry, you’re ready to start tiling
  7. Mix another batch of adhesive as before
  8. Spread the adhesive using a suitable notched trowel
  9. Firmly press the tiles into the adhesive ribs with a slight twisting action. Lift a tile now and again to check the coverage
  10. The adhesive is rapid setting, so you can begin grouting the tiles 3 hours later
