To help form a stronger bond, lightly moisten the broken piece and the floor before applying the product.
Apply the product
Apply a generous amount of an all purpose glue (e.g. UniBond 100% Power Glue) to the broken tile in a zigzag manner to ensure enough adhesion.
Press the corner of the tile into position and carefully align it with the other part of the tile. Hold it for a couple of seconds to make sure it’s in the right position.
