Dry partitioning is a building system made up of rectangular plates with a natural plaster web bound to two surface sheets of cardboard, used in indoor distributions. These plates are assembled on a structure with galvanised steel plated sections.
Any vibrations and bending this system may suffer are to be considered when selecting the correct fixing material to ensure it guarantees that the ceramic tiles can be secured firmly.

PREPARING THE SUPPORT
Make sure that the system is stable by checking the plasterboard panels are firmly attached.
Check that the support is dry and clean. (Brush the surface if necessary).
Spread VAT® EXTRA over the support using the notched trowel, and check that the adhesive’s open time has not elapsed.
Fix the tiles ensuring they form a solid surface.
Leave a minimum grouting joint width of 2 mm and regrout after 24 hours using the grouting range BORADA® by PROPAMSA.
- For fixing large tiles (over 900 cm2) use the Floating and buttering technique.
- The dispersion adhesives ensure optimum adherence even when the plates move or deform.
- In very hot weather conditions, or strong winds, do not wet the support and use small cloths during application.
