Tiling onto emulsion

Sponsored Links
Rub down the walls with a very rough sandpaper, then tile as normal. It won't take too long at all if you use something like 40 grit sandpaper. Bal White Star is excellent adhesive and is recommended for use around a shower.

if you do steam it off it wont affect the plaster if its been up 5 weeks.
you wont need any primer, and run very fast away from anyone who EVER advises pva use

or as mr GC says sand it, but either way when finished dont prime, no need
guys thanks for your help.

if i have this right, i steam, sand a a bit to kep and then tile
if you steam you steam

if you sand you sand

absolutely no need to do both fella!
thanks jefoss, never done this before. i assume the paint will come off easily
you wont need any primer
If using a cement based adhesive onto plaster you need to use a primer or the two can react and not provide a proper bond. http://www.biscem.co.uk/downloads/Biscem-TilingOntoPlasterAndRender.pdf[/QUOTE]

the waterproof adhesives have a "built in" primer so you dont need to prime. no reaction!

i use weber wr, straight onto plaster never ever had a problem.
