Is a two-component tile adhesive containing Synthetic Latex – Styrene Butadiene Rubber, giving an extra strong and flexible bonding ability, resistance to vibration and submersion.
Laying new floor tiles without removing existing tiles.
Vibration resistant at locations near heavy-load traffic.
Prevents tiles from exploding or popping up.
Practical. Instant application formula, saves time and labour.
Exterior and interior.
Dry, wet and submerged.
Floors and Walls.
Swimming Pools, Ground Water Tank, Bathrooms, Factories, and Heavy Load Traffic Area.
TYPES OF TILES
Homogeneous Tiles (water absorbency < 0,5 %).
Ceramic Tiles (water absorbency > 6%).
Marble and Granite.
For wall application : note height and tile sizes (stone, marble, granite).
Concrete, Plaster and tile on tile.
1. PREPARATION STAGE
Surface should be as flat as possible to ensure economic
use of tile adhesive.
Clean substrate of dust, paint, oil, fats and other dirts.
Moisten substrate using moist sponge/cloth.
Substrate of plaster should be at least 7 days old.
28 days old will give maximum result.
Notes : Tiles do not have to be soaked in water.
2. MIXING STAGE
AM 30 liquid to AM 30 powder mixing ratio = 1 kg : 4 kg.
Pour AM 30 liquid into mixing bucket.
Add AM 30 Powder gradually, mixing with a cement paddle then mix thoroughly with a mixer. The well-mixed substance should be a paste.
Leave for 5 minutes to allow full activation of the polymer and additive.
3. APPLICATION STAGE
Mix again to a paste, then spread on the surface area using a cement paddle.
Smoothen the paste at the application surface with a smooth edged trowel.
Spread a thin layer of paste, using some pressure to ensure the paste fills the surface thoroughly.
Apply a second layer of paste using a notched trowel at a 60° angle.
Immediately lay the tiles on the wet paste, tapping with a rubber mallet to obtain good bondage.
Clean excessive adhesive at the tile joints before it dries.
After the tiles are laid, do not step on them for 24 hours, then proceed to grout the joints.
4. EXPANSION JOINT
Locations for Expansion Joints must be designated at the planning stage of the building. Expansion Joints should be located at every 5 meter section of the floor, at all corners of the rooms, or at locations where the floor borders different material. The Expansion Joints must be clear of any excessive adhesive material and filled with a flexible border product such as silicon sealants.
Do not add other materials, such as cement, sand, water.
The tiles do not have to be soaked in water beforehand, as this will alter the mixture composition.
It is advised to prepare an amount of paste mixture just enough for 60 minutes application.
Spread the adhesive to the substrate area tile by tile to prevent the adhesive from drying before all tiles are laid.
For large tiles (60 x 60 cm) or tiles with uneven backs, spread adhesive also to the back of the tiles for optimum bonding.
Application using a trowel will prevent air to be trapped between substrate and tiles, ensuring a perfect bond and prevent tiles from popping.
