AM 47 LOW EFFLORESCENCE TILE ADHESIVE

AM 47
LOW EFFLORESCENCE TILE ADHESIVE

Is a low efflorescence tile adhesive made of a special cement that does not release Alkali Calsium Hydroxide/Ca (OH)2, during the drying process (hydration) preventing the sedimentation of efflorescence (white crystals) on the tile surface.  The tiles look more attractive, are clean and weather resistant. AM 47 is perfect for bonding natural stones that are frequently exposed to weather changes and wet areas.


ADVANTAGES 

  • Has a strong adhesive power so durable.
  • It has high water resistance for wet areas.
  • Has resistance to weather changes.
  • Does not cause white stains on the surface of natural stone. 

APPLICATION AREA 

  • Exterior and Interior.
  • Dry and Wet.
  • Floors and Walls.

TYPES OF TILES 

  • Homogeneous Tiles (water absorbency < 0,5 %).
  • Cer.amic Tiles (water absorbency  > 6%).
  • Natural Stones.
  • Marble.
  • Granit.

SUBSTRATES 

Concrete, Screed and Plaster.

1. PREPARATION STAGE

  • Surfaces 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

  • Water to AM 47 Powder mixing ratio =  1 part : 3 parts. 
  • Pour 3 parts of AM 47 Powder gradually into mixing bucket containing 1 part water, mix 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 surface of 60º.
  • 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.
  • Install grout filler with grout filler. For perfect results use an AM 55 and AM 57 grout filler.

NOTES:

  • Do not add other materials to the AM 47 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.
