AM 42
HOMOGENEOUS TILE ADHESIVE

Is a homogeneous cement based tile adhesive containing POLYMERIC BINDER™,  giving a stronger bonding ability. Practical, ready to use by just adding water. 


ADVANTAGES

  • Prevents tiles from exploding or popping up.
  • Perfect bonding without entrapment of air.
  • Practical. Formula ready for application, saves time and labour.                      

APPLICATION AREA

  • Interior.
  • Dry and wet (not submerged).
  • Floors and Walls.

TYPES OF TILES

  • Homogeneous tiles (water absorbency < 0,5 %). 
  • Ceramic tiles (water absorbency  > 6%).
  • Natural stones.
  • Marble (for interior floor and wall application). 

SUBSTRATES

Concrete, screed and plaster.

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

  • Clean water to AM 42 Powder mixing ratio = 1 part : 3 parts.
  • Pour water into mixing bucket.
  • Add AM 42 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

  • Repeat stirring with a cement spoon, then apply it to the application area.
  • Flatten with trowel sides are flat while pressed for a thin layer of adukan absorbed into the application field.
  • Add the mixture over the first layer, drawn with a jagged trowel side, tilt angle to the 60 ° surface.
  • Immediately put the tiles on top of the wet mixture, tap with a rubber hammer to stick well.
  • Clean the residue from the slit between the tiles (grout), so as not to interfere with the installation of grout filler.
  • Wait 24 hours for the tiles to be perfectly sealed.
  • Perform grout filler with filler material of AM 50 and AM 53.

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 aflexible border product such as silicon sealants

NOTES:

  • Do not add other materials to the AM 42 product.
  • Prepare a mixture to taste used up in a maximum of 60 minutes.
  • It is recommended to smear the surface of the application area per tile to prevent the adhesive from drying before the tile is installed.
  • Specially a wide tile type (> 60 x 60 cm) or an uneven rear tile, add an adhesive by smearing the back of the tile to make the tiles perfectly sealed.
  • Applications with trowels prevent air from getting trapped, making the tiles perfectly seal and preventing the lifting of the tiles (popping).
  • Store in a closed state, dry place and at room temperature.
  • For submerged areas it is recommended to use AM 30 - Extra Strong Tile Adhesives.
