EN 1308:2007 - Adhesives for tiles - Determination of slip

1 Scope
This European Standard specifies the method for the determination of the resistance to slip of a tile applied to an adhesive on a vertical surface.
This European Standard applies to all ceramic tile adhesives for internal and external tiling on walls.
This European Standard does not contain performance requirements or recommendations for the design and installation of ceramic tiles.
NOTE Ceramic tile adhesives can be used also for other kinds of tiles (natural and agglomerated stones etc.), if they do not adversely affect the stones.

3 Sampling
Take at least 2 kg sample of the adhesive in accordance with EN ISO 15605 and EN 1067.
4 Test conditions
Standard conditions shall be (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % relative humidity and the speed of air in the testing area less than 0,2 m/s.
5 Test materials
5.1 General
Condition all test materials for at least 24 h under standard conditions.
The adhesive to be tested shall be within its shelf life, where this is specified.
5.2 Ceramic tiles
The tiles shall be checked prior to conditioning to ensure that they are new, clean and dry.
5.3 Concrete slab
The concrete slab shall comply with EN 1323.
6 Apparatus
6.1 Steel straight edge
6.2 Clamps
6.3 Masking tape
A 25 mm wide masking tape.
6.4 Notched trowel
A notched trowel having 6 mm x 6 mm notches at 12 mm centres.
6.5 Spacers
Two (25 ± 0,5) mm x (25 ± 0,5) mm x (10 ± 0,5) mm thick spacers made from stainless steel.
6.6 Weight
A mass capable of exerting a force of (50 ± 0,1) N with a cross-sectional area of less than (100 ± 1) mm x (100 ± 1) mm.
6.7 Vernier caliper
A Vernier caliper accurate to 0,01 mm.
7 Mixing of the adhesive
The amount of water and/or liquid admix required for preparing the adhesive shall be as stated by the manufacturer in parts by mass, i.e. liquid to dry powder (in the case where a range of values is given, the average shall be used).
