Application Information

Cure Time

SikaTile®-100 Moisture Guard is dry when it turns light blue, with no visible dark color as applied. Typically, drying time is 2 to 4 hours; depending on ambient conditions.  Extreme cold and humid conditions will extend drying time up to as much as 12 hours. After the second coat is applied and both coats are fully cured, the application area can be flood tested.

Drying Time

2 - 4 hours*

*When cured at 70 º F (21 º C) and 50% RH.  Ambient conditions may speed or slow drying times.



50 sq. ft. per gallon at 30 mils thick

Application Steps


All surfaces must be between 40º F (4º C) to 90º F (32º C) and structurally sound (deflection not to exceed 1⁄360 of the span), dry, clean, and free from oil, grease, wax, paint, old adhesives, sealers, and curing compounds.
Any contaminates which inhibit proper bonds must be removed.
Substrate preparation should be completed following ANSI A108 AN-2 “General Requirements for Sub-surfaces”.
All substrates should be plumb and true, surface deviation should not exceed 1⁄4" in 10’.
Patching, leveling, or areas requiring a mortar bed should be prepared using SikaLevel® Underlayments. Movement (Expansion) joints should be provided to comply with TCNA method EJ171.
Concrete must be free of any negative hydrostatic pressure and/or excessive moisture.



Concrete Substrates:
All concrete substrates should be cured for a minimum of 28 days.
Smooth steel troweled floors should be roughed up using mechanical chipping, scraping, or shot blasting.
Dampen porous or dry concrete prior to installation of tile. Do not leave puddles or standing water.
Rough or uneven surfaces should be made smooth with a Latex Portland cement underlayment to provide a wood float or better finish.
Do not level with asphalt-based products.
Concrete should be tested for both moisture vapor transmission and hydrostatic pressure, by use of a Calcium-Chloride (CaCl) test.
Consult technical support if test readings indicate a reading greater than 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. in 24 hours.
Existing joint openings larger than 3/16” must be prepared and filed with approved caulking or sealant prior to the application of primer and elastomeric membrane.


Patching, Self-Leveling Compounds, and Lightweight Gypsum Concrete: Should be cured to the minimum manufacturer’s requirement for moisture-sensitive installations.

Plywood and OSB Substrates:
Must be a minimum of two (2) layers of 5/8” exterior grade plywood (EGP). Plywood shall be securely fastened in accordance with industry standards.
Maintain a 1/8” gap between plywood sheets and all surfaces they abut.
Joints in the top layer should be offset from the joints on the bottom layer.
Maximum joist spacing should be 16” on center and the deflection of the floor structure and sub-floor must not exceed L/360 of the span under combined live or dead loads.


Other Substrates:
All other substrates and or sub-flooring systems shall be installed in a manner approved by both the product manufacturer and using appropriate installation methods.


Clean tools and tiles with water before the material dries.
