About this Product
weberset pro lite – rapid is a lightweight, rapid-setting, ultra-flexible (S2), low-dust, cement-based floor tile adhesive for interior and exterior use.
It is used to fix all ceramic floor tiles , porcelain, mosaic, quarry, marble, terrazzo and natural stone to most building substrates. It is particularly suited for situations where some movement, deflection or limited shrinkage is likely.

Preparation & Application
All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound, and free from grease, dust or any other contaminating barrier. Unsound areas should be made good before tiling. Flaky or peeling layers should be removed. Porous or dusty surfaces should be primed using a suitable primer and allowed to dry before tiling.
Gradually add approximately 4 parts of powder to 1 part of clean water (measured by volume), and mix to a smooth workable, stiff paste. Do not attempt to extend the pot life by adding more water.
Do not use if the temperature is below, or likely to fall below, 5°C. Apply the adhesive onto the substrate using a suitable notched trowel, covering up to 1m2 at a time (or no more than can be tiled within 10 minutes). Tiles with studded backs may also need buttering with adhesive. The tiles should be firmly bedded with a twisting or sliding action, leaving clearance joints for grouting. It is good practice to occasionally remove a tile to ensure that the appropriate contact is being achieved. Adjustments can be made for up to 10 minutes. Clean excess adhesive from tiles and joints with a damp cloth before it sets. Leave for at least 2 hours before grouting. Longer is required at lower temperatures or when tiling onto impervious or sealed surfaces.
Leave for at least 3 days to cure and ensure that the surface is dry and strong enough for foot traffic. Ensure anhydrite screeds are fully dry (moisture content <0.5%) and primed with weber AD250 or weber PR360.
Mastic asphalt (interior only)
Ensure the surface is sound, clean, dry, of adequate cohesive strength and of a flooring grade. weberset pro lite – rapid can be applied over small amounts of existing vinyl tile residue, providing that is clean and well attached.
Ensure that the surface is clean and free from grease. Remove any traces of rust and prime with a zinc chromate primer.
Cement/sand render or screed
Allow at least 3 weeks for screed and 2 weeks for render before tiling. Priming with weber PR360 may be required if the surface is very dusty or porous.
Allow at least 7 weeks before tiling onto new concrete. Surface should be clean and free from laitance. Scabbling is recommended to improve key.
Existing ceramic/vinyl tiles
Ensure that the substrate is strong enough to take the weight of extra tiling and that the surface is free from any wax or polish.
It is important that the surface is abraided and sealed by repeatedly coating with weber PR360 until the surface stops absorbing.
The heating must be off, and should be turned on gradually at least 5 days after tiling.
Ensure the floor is rigid and capable of supporting the expected load with minimal deflection. Brace any areas that need extra support with noggins between the joists. New WBP plywood floors should be a minimum of 18mm thick and all joints must be adequately supported. Existing boards should be screwed down to joists with two screws at each end and another two wherever they cross joists/noggins. For small floors with no noticeable deflection 9mm WBP plywood or suitable tile backer board can be used to provide a smooth surface to tile. If there is some limited deflection, a minimum of 15mm WBP plywood or equivalent tile backer board should be used to increase the rigidity of the floor. If there is still noticeable movement in the floor, another layer of plywood or tile backer board may be needed. New plywood boards should be primed on the reverse face and edges with weber PR360 and screwed down every 200-300mm. Slight gaps should be left between boards and at the perimeter for expansion. These should be filled with weberjoint silicone sealant.
Allowance for movement
Flexible joints should be incorporated to allow for slight movements due to change in temperature, humidity etc. as indicated by BS 5385:
a) Where the tiling meets other materials (e.g. floor perimeters).
b) Along all internal corners - vertically and horizontally.
c) Over existing movement joints or changes in background material.
d) Dividing large tiled areas into bays (every 8-10m on floors)
