  • Sand (300 KG)
  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) (2-3KG)
  • Starch ether (0.5KG)
  • RDP (8-15KG)

  1. Mix the dry ingredients (Portland cement and sand) together in a clean bucket or container.
  2. Gradually add the HPMC to the dry mixture while stirring continuously to ensure even distribution of the polymer.
  3. Slowly add the water to the mixture while stirring continuously. Mix until a smooth, homogenous paste is formed.
  4. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 to 10 minutes to allow the HPMC to hydrate.
  5. Mix the adhesive again before use to ensure that the consistency is smooth and even.

Note: The exact proportions of the materials may vary depending on the specific requirements of the application, such as the size and type of tiles being used, as well as the conditions of the substrate. The addition of other additives, such as latex or acrylics, may also be necessary to improve the adhesive properties. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and conduct proper testing before use to ensure proper performance and compatibility with the specific application.
