5-Step Easy Installation

Step 1: Installer should sweep the sub-surface and make sure that the sub-surface is free from oil, wax, and dust.

Step 2: Apply TAVY Thin-Skin #007 Glue to the sub-surface using a minimum 1/8" v-notched trowel.

Step 3: Install TAVY Thin-Skin Underlayment by unrolling the product into the wet #007 Glue. The Underlayment should be pressed into the #007 Glue with the flat edge of a trowel to remove all air and to ensure the bond between sub-surface and Underlayment.

No cure time is required moving from Step 3 to Step 4

Step 4: Mix a batch of mortar that is the consistency of syrup. This mortar is then used to Skim-Coat the Underlayment. The Skim-Coat is performed with the flat edge of a trowel. This procedure helps key-in the mortar to the Underlayment. The final dried result will be a surface that looks like a rough concrete floor.

Step 5: Start setting tile over the dry Skim-Coated Thin-Skin Underlayment according to industry standards as if you are tiling over any new clean tile-able surface or installed backer board system.
