Ceramic And Tile Adhesive
Ceramic and Tile Adhesive cement-based, single-component, polymer-added and highly flexible adhesive mortar with high performance and stability. APPLICATION AREAS: Used for Indoor and outdoor applications, Vertical and horizontal surfaces, ladding big-sized ground and wall ceramic tiles, granite, granite-ceramics, marble, clinker and all kinds of coverings from natural stone, Areas like offices, shopping malls, school and hospitals exposed to high human traffic, Floor heating systems, Covering ceramic tiles over old granite and marble surfaces. ADVANTAGES: Offers highly flexible and strong bonding. Resistant to water and frost, not affected by sudden heat changes. Offers high stability, does not make sagging in vertical applications. Allows top to bottom cladding. PREPARING THE SURFACE: Ensure that the curing of the application surface is completed. Ensure that the application surface is clean and free from dust, grease, paint, silicon, curing material, detergent and other contamination reducing the bonding. Ensure that the application surface is heated and dampened. Make application after priming the surface if the surface’s water absorption is high. PREPARING THE MORTAR: Add 25 kg of Asvil Ceramic Adhesive Mortar into 5.5-6.5 liters of water and preferably mix by low speed mixer or by a trowel until a homogenous mixture without pellets obtained. Rest the prepared mortar 5-10 minutes for maturation and use it by mixing. Consume the mortar in the container in 2.5-3 hours of mixing. APPLICATION DETAILS: Compose a contact layer by compressing hardly the adhesive mortar over the application surface, first. Then dredge the product by a notched trowel which fits to the tile size. Ensure that the adhesive mortar is in contact with in minimum %80 percent of rear side of the ceramic tile. Depending on the cladding boards used and flatness of the ground, apply the adhesive mortar both on rear side of the ceramic tile and on the application surface, by double-faced pasting method, if necessary, and fix the boards so as to dredged sides are in two perpendicular directions. Finish the application by exerting force by a rubber tamper to ensure good bonding.
