Dal Cim 500 Crack Isolation Membranes
Care should be taken when using a scaffold because it should not touch the membrane. It should be placed over a stable, flat surface such as a concrete screed or two-inch level tape. Do not place the scaffold over the CIM because it will embed into the membrane and create a gap. If you want to install the scaffold over the membrane, the scaffold should first be nailed to the floor using a spacing pattern. If the scaffold is placed directly on the membrane, it can damage the membrane and compromise the crack isolation function. Finally, make sure to protect the membrane with a tarp or other sheet of plastic.

If the cracks are very small, it may be possible to use CIMs without a soft joint. However, this type of use is not recommended because the membrane is not intended to stop or slow down expansion of the cracks. Since the size of the joint or crack is unknown, the membrane may not be able to adapt to the movement, causing damage. To limit the expansion, a soft joint must be installed over the joint or crack, creating a soft joint.
2) Sand should be applied to the substrate surface so that the cement will be able to flow freely. After the cement dries for approximately 24 hours, the tile must be pressed into the substrate and pressed as hard as possible. While pressing the tile into the substrate, apply pressure to the back of the tile, not the front. If pressure is applied to the tile from the front, the cement will flow under the tile creating gaps. When the pressure is released, the tile will pop out of the substrate creating bubbles and cracks [url= wall tiles [/url]
