Details

It's the way we all did it in the past.... plywood was used for over boarding floorboards before laying or fixing ceramic tiles. However, this caused problems because if the grouting cracked or the sealant failed water would creep in and rot the plywood. There could also be the problem of fungal growth which often reacted with the adhesive causing the tiles to become loose. The ‘Pro’s’ amongst us thought that the problem could be overcome by using ‘Marine; grade plywood but the preservatives in this material migrated through the grout causing an orange stain to develop. A minimum of 15mm plywood has to be used for over boarding floorboards and this creates another problem... a potentially dangerous step up into the tiled room. Now there is a solution to eliminate all of these problems - a unique, easy to lay, water resistant tile backer board that is just as effective on walls as it is on the floor. Introducing the modern solution, No More Ply, the ultimate tile backing board.

OVERBOARDING TIMBER FLOORS

1) First prepare the site. Remove all old existing floor coverings. Next, screw down any loose floorboards (timber or chipboard) firmly and sweep the area clean. You are now ready to start with the boarding.

2) Run two small beads of Mega Strength Polyurethane Adhesive onto the back of the No More Ply sheet. Lay in position and screw down using 25mm No More Ply screws. Screws should be inserted with a cordless screwdriver and 8 screws per sheet is usually sufficient. Always stagger the joints.

3) Run a small bead of Mega Strength Polyurethane Adhesive onto the edge of the laid boards and lay the next board adjacent butting the two together. Screw this down as previously described. This method will help to seal and reinforce the joints.

WARNING: Mega Strength Polyurethane Adhesive is an amazingly strong and waterproof glue so always wear gloves and wipe off any excess glue quickly with an old cloth. Solvent can be used in cases of spillage

4) For straight cuts simply score with the No More Ply Scoring Knife and snap the board across a length of timber or other ridge. For curves or more intricate shapes a jigsaw can be used. For working around pipes a tile nipper can also be used.

Please note that the thicker 9mm No More Ply board may need 3 or 4 scores to ensure a clean snap.

5) When the floor is complete, sweep clean and you are ready for tiling. Priming the boards with SBR Multipurpose Primer (1 part SBR to 3 parts water) will improve adhesion on fresh board.

If underfloor heating is present or being installed, prime with 1 part SBR to 3 parts water before tiling.

OVERBOARDING CONCRETE FLOORS

1) No More Ply is ideal for covering dirty, cracked, worn out concrete floors. Always remove loose material, clean thoroughly and prime with 1 coat of SBR Primer (1 part SBR to 3 parts water) before laying No More Ply over concrete in order to seal in the dust and porous surface.

2) Make sure the floor area is clean and free from any loose materials. No More Ply boards must be primed both sides with 1 coat SBR Primer (1 part SBR to 3 parts water). For best results, lay No More Ply on single, part flexible, rapid setting adhesive ensuring that all joints are staggered.

3) For straight cuts score with the No More Ply Scoring Knife and snap the board across a length of timber or other ridge. For curves or more intricate shapes a jigsaw can be used. For working around pipes a tile nipper can also be used.

Please note that the 9mm No More Ply board may need 3 or 4 scores to ensure a clean snap.

4) When the floor is covered with No More Ply board allow the adhesive to set - please see the adhesive manufacturers guidelines on setting time for this. Cold or damp conditions will delay setting times. Sweep floors clean and you are ready for your tiling cement.
