  • Best Practices for Bostik Hydroment Color-Poxy

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      SURFACE PREPARATION (AS AN ADHESIVE) All surfaces must be structurally sound, clean and free of dust, grease, oil, curing compounds and any foreign material which may inhibit proper bond. All surfaces to receive ceramic tile or stone should have a deflection of <L/360 (1” in 30 feet). Contact Bostik’s Technical Service Department at 1-800-523-6530 for installation instructions for hard to bond and unusual installation requirements such as bonding to steel, glass, plastic laminates and vinyl flooring. Carefully tape off all areas that Color-Poxy will not be applied to (i.e. cabinets, walls, fixtures, appliances, etc.). It is the responsibility of the user to determine the suitability of all substrates prior to installation.

      Plywood: Loose floor boards should be screwed or nailed tight. Follow TCA Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation instruction (Detail F143).

      Concrete: Concrete/must be fully cured (at least 28 days after placement), free of excessive moisture and hydrostatic pressure. Remove any contaminants that may prevent proper bond.

      SURFACE PREPARATION (AS A GROUT) As a grout, ensure that all tile and stone surfaces are firmly bonded, clean, free of dust or any other contaminants that may affect the performance of the grout. Many highly porous tile and stone materials may require the use of a grout release agent or sealer to aid in the removal of grout haze. N O T E : For vertical installations, Cab-O-Sil TS720 may be required as an admixture to reduce sagging. (Cab-O-Sil is manufactured by Cabot Corp.

      for more information please call 1-800-222-6745.)

    2. Application

      APPLICATION (AS AN ADHESIVE) Apply a thin coat of Color-Poxy using the flat side of a trowel. Comb adhesive with the recommended size notched trowel (refer to Trowel Chart). Mix and apply no more Color-Poxy than can be used in 60 minutes. Press or twist individual tile, sheets of tile or stone into the combed Color-Poxy. Occasionally check the back of the tile or stone to ensure 95% coverage. For ceramic mosaic an average bed thickness of 1/16” (1.6 mm) is required. Quarry tile, paver tile and packing house tile require an average bed thickness of approximately 3/32” (2 mm). Do not walk on floors set with Color-Poxy for at least 24 hours. Low temperatures delay the cure of epoxy adhesives and grouts. It is the responsibility of the user to determine if the epoxy material has cured sufficiently for traffic. All epoxies take up to 3 days to fully cure. Do not open freshly installed floors to heavy traffic (vehicular, forklift, or other heavy equipment) prior to this time.

      APPLICATION (AS A GROUT) Do not grout until tile has set for 48 hours. Slightly moisten tile surface with damp sponge prior to grouting. Spread epoxy grout mixture over the face of the tile using a hard rubber epoxy grout float. Work the grout back and forth with short strokes always at a 45°angle to the grout joint. This will ensure complete filling of the joints. Remove excess epoxy from the face of the tile using the edge of the rubber float (held at 90° to the surface of the tile). While applying pressure, pull the float diagonally across the face of the tile.

    3. Mixing

      The temperature of all Color-Poxy components must be 50°F to 90°F. Warmer temperatures will improve workability. IMPORTANT: Thoroughly mix resin (Component A) before adding the hardener (Component B). Add contents of Component B to Component A pail and mix with a low speed mixer (<150 RPM) for at least 5 minutes and remove all lumps. Add the appropriate number of colorant tubes (Component C), and mix until colorant is fully dispersed. Helpful Tip: To ensure complete removal of colorant, cut open bottom of tube. Add 2 tubes to a 15 lb. unit, 4 tubes to a 30 lb. unit. Do not add color tubes to epoxy that is being used as a setting adhesive. Re-mix thoroughly to ensure complete dispersion and removal of all lumps. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the mixing pail at least once during the mixing process. NOTE: For best results, use a low speed (<150 RPM) drill mixer and avoid entraining air into the mixture. High speed mixing can generate heat which will shorten pot life. Most epoxy failures are the result of improper and insufficient mixing. Mix thoroughly.

    4. Clean-Up

      Immediately clean tools and equipment with soap and water. Cured epoxy is extremely difficult to remove. Cured epoxy grout can be removed by softening with a heat gun.
