Tile adhesive, cement-based product (C), deformable, elastic (S1), composed of high quality carbonate and marble sands, synthetic resins and specific additives with improved adhesive strength (2), resistant to slipping (T) and with long opening
time (E). It is characterized by an excellent workability, high resistance to humidity and uniform durability.It is applied for layers with a thickness up to 15 mm. Classified asC2TES1 adhesive according to EN 12004 standard.
FIELD OF APPLICATION
Suitable for the adhesion of ceramic tiles in cement-based supports, gresporcelain, clinker, marble, stone tiles, mosaic tiles with low absorption and high shim, for external and internal floors and walls in humidity presence. Recommended for high facades, terraces, for central heating facilities, for facilities that are part of the ongoing vibrations pressures, also suitable for adhesion of tile on tile (in this case tiles should be fixed and stable). Ideal for swimming pools, industrial environments, for unstable and undulations supports (as a result of high elasticity and high rate of deformation) Suitable for adhesion of tiles with the dimensions 5-300 cm.
PREPARATION OF THE MIXTURE
Mix 25 kg STRONGKOLL with 7-8 liters of cleanwater through an electric mixer, until is achieved a homogenous mass and without grains. Leave the mass at rest for 10 minutes and mix it again before usage. Workability time, in normal temperature conditions (20°C) is 2-3 hours.
PREPARATION OF THE SUPPORT
Cement based supports should be regular, resistant and stable, cleaned, without oils, and without paint residues, and must have reached the time of maturity. Approximately, the traditional cement-based floors with normal induration time should have maturation time at least 28 days; supports with traditional plaster should dry for at least 14 days.If the support has cracks should be adjusted in advance. All types of the supports must be cleaned before the application of the product, mechanically.
Initially, it is recommended to apply the product with the smooth part of the screed to have a more uniform distribution and then with the serrated part. For the application it is used a suitable screed depending on the type of the tile that the product is applied. Tiles are placed by using a slight pressure on tile in order to make sure that the surface of the tile is covered with adhesive. Opening time of the product under normal temperatures is 35 minutes for 23°C. Weather conditions may affect the drying time of the product. Take care because the adhesive should not create a surface of film. Otherwise it is necessary to pass once again the screed into the adhesive. It is not advisable to lay the tiles with the joint grouts. Tiles are placed in such a way as to be suited to their dimensions.
