Concrete – Drying time
I am about to install some tiles over a concrete slab on grade. I will be using a polymer modified thin set to apply the tiles directly to the concrete.
Because I am using a polymer modified, I want to make sure the concrete is dry enough for the thin set to work. Otherwise, the polymer modified thin set will not achieve a good adhesion because it needs to dry (and will not dry upwards because of the large ceramic tiles). (I am concern about this issue because of this reading https://www.buildingscience.com/documents/building-science-insights-newsletters/bsi-113-stoned).
So, my question is, how much time must I wait after poring until I install the tiles? I will be using a wet concrete cure.
Thank you in advance!
