.Loose Tile Repair
|Loose Tile Repair (LTR) - Re-adhere loose tile without removing them. Just inject LTR adhesive under the loose tile and it's as good as new. Cleans up with water.
LTR is specially formulated to re-adhere loose ceramic tiles by injecting the elastimeric adhesive underneath the hollow tile.
LTR forms a flexible bond. It should be used only on concrete or exterior grade plywood substrates. LTR is for use in interior applications only. Not for use in shower or wet areas.
Shake LTR well before using. Tap tiles lightly with a rubber mallet to determine that the tile has hollow areas.
Next, drill into the grout joint around the loose tile with a 1/8" masonry dril bit. Drill down slightly deeper than the thickness of the tile. Drill 4 to 8 holes around the loose tile. Be careful not to drill into the tile.
Use a vacuum or shop vac to clean away all dust and debris from holes and surrounding area.
Then use a caulk gun to apply the tile adhesive. Insert the tip directly into a drilled hole and inject adhesive with light pressure (if having trouble or in cold weather, soak the LTR tube in 70-90 degree water for 30 minutes). Tap the tile with the rubber mallet. Rotate the caulk gun to the other holes and inject until the adhesive begins to come up through the holes. Clean excess with damp sponge or rag. When done, close the cartridge cap with cap provided.
Place a weight, such as a bucket of water, on the reset tile and allow 24-72 hours for adhesive to cure, depending on temperature and humidity. Clean-up excess adhesive around the tile with a damp sponge or rag.
Fill holes in grout with matching caulking or grout.
