The Answer

Hello Peter

Plaster walls should always be primed with Mapei's Primer G before tiling commences using either the Keraquick or the Mapeker, Mapei adhesives.

It is worth noting that the Split Faced Slate cladding panels can vary from approximately 30-42kg/m2 in weight depending on which range you choose. Although, we are aware that tiling onto plaster surfaces with these products has been done previously, the overall weight/m2, is considered too heavy and therefore not recommended. The best surfaces for tiling with the Split Faced Cladding panels would be cement render, brick/blockwork or suitable tile backer boards.

Further information on maximum tiling weights can be found on the Tiling Association website, alternatively please call our office on 01283 730388 where our friendly Sales Team will be more than happy to help.
