Additional information

Composition

Product based on high resistance cement, selected aggregates and additives.

Features and applications

  • To be applied indoors.
  • Suitable for ceramic tiles with a medium-high absorption rate.
  • No need to wet tiles or substrates thanks to its high water-retaining capacity.
  • Non slip. Excellent initial adherence.
  • Long open time. Allows rectification.

Substrates

  • Conventional cement-based substrates.
  • Substrates must be resistant, stable, sound and clean, free of dust, demolding agents, organic products, etc.
  • All substrates must have the appropriate flatness. Otherwise, smooth down up to 5 mm with the same product 48 hours prior to bonding.In case of greater thickness should be used:
    • On floors: Depending on the particular need use 10R NIVELAND 10 R or PAVILAND RECRECIDO AUTONIVELANTE.
    • On walls: mortars with adequate tensile strength with drying shrinkage already completed.
  • In case of hot or windy weather conditions or when applying over absorbent substrates, it is advisable to wet the substrate and wait till the thin layer of water disappears.
  • Do not apply on clay or on paint.

 

Instructions for use

  • Add water and mix by hand or mechanically until it takes on an even and workable consistency.
  • Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes and remix.
  • Spread the mixed product on the substrate with a trowel to a maximum surface area of 2m2.
  • Spread with a notched trowel to adjust thickness (see chart).
  • Lay the tiles, press and make small rotation movements to ensure that the glue gets in total contact with both surfaces.
  • Observe construction joints (expansion, contraction, fraction, perimeter corner joints) and the joints between the cement slabs (minimum 2mm).
  • Joints should be grouted 24 hours after if on vertical surfaces, and 48 hours after if on floorings. Use the appropriate mortar from the MORCEMCOLOR range depending on the type of joint.

NOTE: For better results lay tiles as soon as possible after spreading.

Cautions and recommendations

  • Do not apply below 5ºC nor above 30ºC.
  • Do not apply when there is a risk of frost, rain, strong wind or direct sunlight.
  • Do not apply in areas where water may accumulate.
  • Under extreme weather conditions (gusty winds or high temperatures) drying may occur faster.
  • On floor areas larger than 30 m2, leave partition joints to be filled with a flexible material.
  • In case of Indoor floor tiled areas larger than 15 m² it is recommended to leave a free perimeter joint between the tiles and the wall or pillar of about 5 mm hidden by the plinth. These joints must be filled with a deformable grout among PUMALASTIC range
  • For gypsum based substrates, use PEGOLAND - GYPSUM, avoiding slaked or poor plaster.
  • In case of tiles reinforced with fiberglass mesh on their back, ask the technical department.
  • Do not use the technique known as by globs.
  • Working and setting times of the adhesive depend on the temperature, air streams, and the absorption of tiles and substrates.
