what should i do after removal of linolium?
i just remove linolium sheets today. there was blacfk rubber layer (bond?) between linolium and concrete floor.
i'm going to put pocilin tile with thinset. but i worry about
the thinset. i already remove all black rubber thing with scraper, but the surface is still shiny and feels like plastic coated.
I bought "versabond thinset". do you think it'll work?
if not, what should i do? sanding out all the rubber thing until i can see the clean concrete surface or put something else on top of it?
please help me out
You need to get that surface as clean as you can---without using chemicals---any chemicals will soak into the concrete and cause the thinset to fail.
The glue you are describing sounds like 'cut back'---tiling over that requires a stronger thinset than Versabond---
I use a powdered unmodified thinset mixed with liquid latex---Kerabond and Keralastic by Mepei is a good example---Some modified thinsets can be used over cutback--but Versabond is not one of them---
Go to the tiling section here--look for a 'sticky' called 'Mud what is it?' by Bud Cline---good information.--Mike---
