Additional information


Product based on high resistance cement, selected aggregates, additives and synthetic resins.
which give excellent bonding, good workability and resistance to ageing.

Features and applications

  • To be applied on indoor and outdoor ceramic flooring, indoor walls, and baseboards.
  • 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.
  • Swimming pool tiling.
  • Suitable for installing low-absorption ceramics (≤3%) in residential and publicly trafficked interior wall and floor tiles, provided that the length of the longest side of the tile is ≤30 cm.


  • Conventional cement-based substrates.
  • Suitable for installation on all types of laminated plaster partitions (type PYL).
  • Do not apply on clay or on paint.
  • 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.
  • On outdoor flooring, substrates must have a gradient equal or superior to 1%.

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).
  • Place the pieces on the fresh adhesive, pressing and moving until the grooves are completely crushed and the entire surface of the ceramic is properly adhered, periodically check the stickiness of the adhesive by lifting a previously laid tile, if a non-transfer film appears on the surface of the adhesive, or dehydration of the adhesive, proceed to remove the material and apply a new product.
  • Laying the tiles by a double glueing method outdoors, for formats greater than 900cm2, on floors of commercial or industrial use, if there is underfloor heating, when laying ceramic sheets, if using levelling systems or if the tiles have a relief such as that good contact with the adhesive is difficult.
  • Respect the construction joints (expansion, shrinkage, fraction, perimeter corner joints) and between tiles (minimum of 2 mm inside and 5 mm outside).
  • 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.
  • Under extreme weather conditions (gusty winds or high temperatures) drying may occur faster.
  • In floors and coatings with a surface greater than 50 m2 in interiors and 30 m2 in exteriors or in elongated surfaces of more than 15 linear meters it is recommended to leave partition or fractionation joints filled with a deformable material of the PUMALASTIC range.
  • It is recommended to leave a free perimeter expansion joint between the floor and the wall or pillar, hidden by the skirting board, of approximately 5 mm. These joints should be filled with a deformable material from the PUMALASTIC range.
  • Check that the gypsum board is firmly fixed before applying on it.
  • For plaster based substrates, use PEGOLAND ESPECIAL YESO, PEGOLAND PORCELANICO YESO or an adhesive from PEGOLAND PROFESIONAL range of products, avoiding slaked or poor plaster.
  • The swimming pool can be refilled after 7 days of applying the adhesive.
  • The watertightness of the swimmingpool must be guaranteed by the underlying concrete structure.
  • 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.
  • In case of tiles reinforced with fiberglass mesh on their back, please consult the technical department.
  • When working with tiles that can be stained due to their high water absorption should be placed with quick-setting adhesives. Use PEGOLAND FAST FLEX C2FTE S1.
