ADHESIVES FOR TILES, MARBLES – GRANITES / GROUTS

  • FLEXIBLE POLYMER MODIFIED TILE ADHESIVE  (C2TES1)
FLEX 2000
FLEXIBLE POLYMER MODIFIED TILE ADHESIVE (C2TES1)
Strong adhesion, lasts for a lifetime.

Description

Cementitious white adhesive for all types of tiles, based on high-strength Portland white cement (I-52.5), reinforced with polymer resins, selected white marble aggregates and special additives to improve adhesion of tiles to difficult, non-absorbent surfaces, where flexible and strong adhesion is required. Proven particularly resistant to  humid environment.  

Usages

Strong adhesion of all types of ceramic tiles, including non absorbent ones, on floors  or walls, in dry or wet areas (baths, swimming pools  etc.), on floors with underfloor  heating  etc.   You can use it on various substrates such as: plaster, concrete, aerated concrete, brick wall  etc.   For adhesion on gypsum boards or cement sheets, you should first  prime  the surfaces  with MARMOLINE MST 11 acrylic water based primer.

Advantages

  • High strength
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Flexible
  • Moisture and frost-proof   
  • Incomparable quality of raw materials
  • Easy to apply - excellent workability
  • No vertical slip of tiles 
  • Indoor and outdoor use

Application Mode

  • Check that the substrate is clean, dry and free from loose particles and other materials.
  • If the substrate is unstable or crumbles, it is recommended to prime the surface with MARMOLINE MST 11 acrylic water based primer.
  • Mix with the necessary quantity of water using an electric mixer at low speed, until a homogeneous, lump-free mixture is obtained.
  • Leave the mixture to set, for five to ten minutes and stir again
  • Spread with a notched trowel; choose the size according to the type of tile and the substrate.
  • Tiles must be fixed within 20-30 minutes after applying the adhesive and definitely before it skins-over.
  • Fix the tiles  by pressing them gently and then level them
  • The adhesive remains workable for 3 to 4 hours depending on the season, temperature and humidity in the environment. When the adhesive begins to set, you must stir again without adding water.
  • Proceed to joint-filling after 24 hours for floors and 12 hours for walls.
  • Mixing water: For a 25 kg bag, add  approximately 7 liters of clean  water
  • Application temperature +5°C  to +35°C
