What can I add to the concrete so it will stick to porcelean pavers
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community, Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about porcelain pavers.
Would it be possible for you to post a photo of your porcelain paver and in what area are you trying to install it? This will let our members have a better understanding of what you are trying to do and will allow us to provide you with a comprehensive recommendation.
Please keep us updated, we look forward to seeing your photos.
I am trying to lay the 600*400mm Tuscan Porcelain paver that Bunnings sells on a mortar bed for an outside terrace. I have read that you need to apply a primer to the back of the paver to make it stick to mortar. Overseas they use a Pro Joint Porcelain Primer Slurry to do the job.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find a similar product in Aust. Maybe someone knows a similar product.
Sorry, had trouble with photo, hope this will do.
If you are putting the Tuscan Porcelain Paver onto an existing cement base, I suggest using the Dunlop 15kg Floorfix Tile Adhesive. This adhesive dries hard and is ideal for cement-based installation. It is formulated to be used both inside and outside the home. I recommend having a look at Bondall 1L BondCrete Cement Additive as a possible additive to mortar.
