Bonding Tiles onto Tiles
Beautiful tiles are a good solution in many areas of the house – whether in the bathroom, kitchen or living rooms.
You can only find the matching PROBAU quality products for your tiling project in your BAUHAUS centre.
This is how it works:
A bit past its prime: Cold tiles up to waist height and above this wallpaper. This must be removed and the upper wall area coated with PROBAU Cement Mortar to the level of the tiles.
Once cleaned, the old tiles can be sanded for better adhesion. Here they are being sanded using a machine.
The upper tile border is marked onto the wall. A new border is to be provided here.
Apply the ready-for-use PROBAU Flexible Emulsion Adhesive evenly with the trowel, and comb through with a notched trowel.
Now lay the tiles into the adhesive bed and press in. Leave spaces for decorative tiles. Tile spacers are useful (see image 10).
Realigning the horizontal is possible as long as the "working time" still permits corrections.
The crowning glory: The decorative tiles are placed in the spaces allocated for them.
Good to know: Tiles onto tiles requires secure adhesion and thorough subsurface preparation: Old tiles must be cleaned and degreased. Any detergent residue is removed most effectively with vinegar, or commercially available acidic cleaners.
