Project Description

TYPE

CEMENTITIOUS TILE ADHESIVE WITH FIBRES, CLASS C1 TE In compliance with the requirements of Standard EN 12004

COMPOSITION

Portland cement, fractionated quartz sand, polymer additives, fibers.

APPLICATION

For adhesion of porous ceramic tiles on concrete, cement plasters, and other mineral substrates in dry and humid places indoors. It is suitable for adhesion of tiles with dimensions up to 30 x 30 cm to vertical and horizontal surfaces.

PROPERTIES

Good strength, enough open time, decreased slipping when laid on vertical substrates,
water- and cold resistant.

PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE

The substrate must be clean, dry and sound, without cracks. Primer must be applied beforehand on highly absorbent surfaces.

PREPARATION OF THE MIXTURE

Mix a bag of 25 kg of adhesive with 5.5 L of water. In a suitable container add the dry mix to the required quantity of water and mix with a mixing device until a homogeneous consistency is attained. Leave the mixture to stay for 10 min., then mix again and the product is ready to use. Important – re-stirring the mixture increases the strength indices of the product.

LAYING

Apply the adhesive with a square notch trowel with notch size from 4 x 4 mm to 8 x 8 mm depending on the size of the tile. First apply a thin contact layer on the substrate and then using the notched side of the trowel, comb out the still fresh adhesive. Lay and press the tiles on the fresh adhesive. When laying non-porous tiles, tiles with large sizes, or laying tile on tile, apply adhesive on the substrate and on the back of the tile – this will guarantee maximum adhesion between the tile and the adhesive.

RECOMMENDATION

Addition of other materials in the ready mixture is not allowed. The recommended temperature range of use is from +5°C to + 35°C.

CONSUMPTION RATE

From 2 kg/m2 to 5 kg/m2 depending on the size of the notches of the square trowel and how even the surface is.

STORAGE

To be kept in a dry and well ventilated place.
