For any product to meet warranty claims and perform as it was intended you must use all items as instructed by the maker of the membrane. Using any type of primer would invalidate any warranty.
I suggest you obtain the correct materials and make sure the area is water tight.
Oh and if the tilesafe membrane you have is not sticky enough i suggest it could have been stored for a while because its one of the stickiest things i have known.
Tiesafe primer is what they supply and that is what you must use to meet their warranty requirements. I have used it before with no problems.
You will need the corners fitted 1st, You will need the tilesafe membrane on roll which is laid along the floor and up the wall and then lay the main floor. Alll joints overlaid with jointing tape and the supplied silicione type stuff (NOT SILICONE SEALANT, as this will destroy the membrane). The putty is used around any pipes you should have protruding through the membrane and then tape around the hole.
It sounds as you dont have a full kit.
you might have to trail around your local tile shops today if your tiler is booked tomorrow. Give him a ring today, He might be able to tell you where to go or worst senario he might have a 'fill in' job to give you more time to sort it so no one loses time and money!
