  3. The waterproof Coating DOES NOT provide a wearing surface and is designed for use with ceramic tiling.
  4. Waterproof Coating will support a maximum weight of 32kg/m2.
  5. When applying to concrete, sand/cement screed and rendering plaster, allow sufficient drying times as follows: Concrete/concrete block walls/clay brickwork : 6 weeks *  Cement  sand screed : 3 weeks * Cement sand rendering : 2 weeks * Plaster : 4 weeks
  6. When applying to partition walls, plasterboard, fibreboard and timber floors, ensure that these are well braced with adequate ventilation from behind or below - and are sufficiently strong and rigid to support the weight of any tiling.
