Workability and bonding strength.
Tensile Adhesion: > 1.00 N/mm2.
Aggregate Size : 1 mm max.
Coverage : Approximately 3 kg/ m2 depending on substrate and backface of tile applied.
Pot Life : 3 hours.
Open Time : 20 minutes.
Mixing Ratio : 26% water on dry material.
Packing : 25 kg.


The substrate should be sound and free from grease, paint and other contaminants. Mix CMI TILEGRIP 185 into approximately 6.5 liters of clean water until a slump free consistency is attained. Allow mixture to stand for 10 minutes before mixing again. Spread mixture with a notched — trowel onto substrates or by buttering backface of tile. For heavier tiles or tiles with high grooves or ridges, combination of both is recommended. Do not spread adhesive more than 1 m.sq. at a time and ensure that tiles should be fixed immediately or within 10 minutes. The tiles should be firmly pressed onto sub-base and immediately knocked into position. In case of long delay, remove the existing adhesive and comb out a fresh layer. Ensure that backface of the tile is in good contact with the adhesive for best results.

Important : Tiles must not be soaked in water.


Storage life is approximately 6 months if stored in a cool and dry place.
