3. Hardness

The substrate should be both hard and resistant in order to avoid cracking or disbonding at a later stage.

4. Porosity

Cement-based substrates should have normal absorption in order to avoid premature water loss from the cement-based adhesive and to ensure that the bond can develop correctly.

5. Adhesion

The substrate has to be cohesive and resistant in order to ensure the cement-based adhesive bonds properly.

6. Cleanliness

The substrate has to be clean in order to ensure the adhesive bonds properly.
