Often in dry, hot weather, the glue suddenly ceases to glue the tile - on its surface an imperceptible film of dried admixture was formed. In this case, it is enough to collect the glue from the surface, stir again and continue to work.
It happens that the glue, applied with a coarse layer, still remains the same on the next day.
The reason is that the chemical additives contained in tile adhesives have the ability to delay the start of hardening of cement. The solution will definitely gain strength, but later.
Cheap adhesives for tile safely hold only on stable bases. Do not use them for work, for example, on drywall partitions.
The components of the mixtures have different dissolution and swelling times. Therefore, keeping the mixture of water mixed with water for 5 minutes and re-mixing is very useful.
Finishing plaster putty is easy to absorb moisture from the air. When stored in an open container quickly enough of the gypsum will react, and some additives will decompose under the influence of moisture. A week later such putty begins to harden literally in 5 - 15 minutes.
Lime plaster is unsuitable for gypsum plasterboard partitions - fresh lime "burns" paper and a layer of hardened plaster disappears. For the same reason, wallpaper on lime plaster should be glued as early as a month.
Traditional primer for lime plaster should not be used. The film of the formed polymer does not allow the lime to "boil" to the base and the plaster worse holds. Better walls just moisten with clean water.
It happens that in panel houses after glazing ceilings there are stains and places exfoliate putty. The reason is often the negligence of the manufacturers of plates, which lubricate the molds not a special drug, and any kind of improvised lubricant.
When creating a protective reinforcing layer in the system of thermal insulation it is necessary to pay attention to the density of the grid. It should not be lower than 140 g / m2. This grid is resistant to the aggressive effects of glue components. Lighter (cheaper) nets over time in the mass of glue "burn".
When creating a system of thermal insulation from extruded polystyrene, the adhesive should be applied to the entire surface of the slab or used for bonding a special foam.
Limestone paint from TM "Budmiks" does not contain substances harmful to health. Combining the advantages of lime (bactericidal, excellent coating ability) and the convenience of traditional paints, lime paint has its own characteristics:
With prolonged storage, the paint thickens, so before work it must carefully mix the mixer. The paint for the first (primer) layer needs to be diluted with water to the desired consistency (approximately 30% water). The second (final) coloring is recommended to do immediately, as the whitening base coat, preferably undiluted paint, from time to time mixing it in a bucket. Keep the paint bucket covered, as the lime reacts quickly with air and forms a crust.
The limestone paint can be applied with a brush, roller or spray. The roller is recommended to use with the shortest pile (velor).
When applying paint on the old coating (for example, whitewash), even if it is strong enough, it is better to use a soft brush - the roller can tear off the old coating, soaked with paint.
Carefully read the instructions on the dye - not any of them is suitable for lime paints! Some low-cost dyes have a sharp and unpleasant smell. "Vlupnjanka-Belaya" in coloring gives lighter tones and the received color may differ from the desired one - make a test painting on a small surface. Do not try to achieve dark, saturated colors - lime "bleaches" the dye. In addition, overdose of some of the dyes thickens the paint and reduces vapor permeability.
Paint based on highly active lime. Protect your eyes and skin when doing work! In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
