Application Steps


Ready to use – stir by hand prior to use


Read all installation instructions before installation. Ready to use the product, do not dilute and stir by hand prior to use. Fill all cracks with SikaTile®-200 Fracture Guard Rapid using a flat trowel. Apply SikaTile®-200 Fracture Guard Rapid to the surface with a trowel, brush, or roller. Normal coverage is approximately 80 sq. ft. per gallon at 30-35 mils thick. After SikaTile®-200 Fracture Guard Rapid has dried (approximately 1 hour depending on surface porosity and ambient conditions; cool and wet weather may delay drying time), tile or stone may be installed directly over the membrane using a polymer-modified tile setting adhesive.


Finish Surface Installation
Apply finish flooring in compliance with methods of installation over crack-isolation membranes. Do not install any defective, damaged, or finish flooring surface, not for its intended use. The installation of this product does not eliminate the need for movement joints, including perimeter joints with a tiled surface.  Provide for expansion and control joints as specified per TCNA Method EJ171. Do not cover expansion joints with mortar.


SikaTile® elastomeric membranes, when properly installed in accordance with the following installation guidelines, will provide years of protection for finish flooring installations. In addition to these instructions, installers shall also reference the most current edition of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installations, The Marble Institute of America (MIA) Dimension Stone Design Manual, NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association) and Manufacturer’s instructions of selected setting materials, substrates, sub-floors, or other manufacturers being used in total, or any part of, an installed flooring system with SikaTile®. Consult your selected manufacturer of these above-mentioned components to ensure selected products are compatible with SikaTile® elastomeric membranes.
