Pegoland® Fast Flex C2 FTE S1

Cementitious adhesive made of mixed bonding agents, fast hardening and drying properties, with reduced slippage. Suitable for indoor and outdoor cladding on floors and walls. Once hard, does not contain soluble salts that stain the stones or cause efflorescence to exterior facings.
Especially suitable for fixing to façades, large areas of flooring, floors with underfloor heating and whenever a fast turn around time is required.
It permits bonding all types of ceramic tiles or elements with similar characteristics.

Additional information

Composition

Product comprised of high-performance hydraulic bonding materials, selected aggregates, additives and synthetic resins that provide a high-bonding strength just a few hours after applying. Excellent manageability and resistance to ageing.

Features and applications

  • Excellent initial adhesion.
  • Long open time, allows for the repositioning of tiles.
  • Reduces the risk of stains appearing on the stones or surface area.
  • Turn around time of just 6 hours after applying.
  • For bonding all types of interior and exterior floors and walls.
  • For bonding all types of ceramic materials. Especially suitable for exterior fixing of marble, granite and natural stone as it does not contain soluble salts and it is fast drying and hardening.
  • Bonding of large surfaces with heavy traffic, floors with underfloor heating systems, cooling chambers and overlays.
  • Highly recommended for restoration work where a fast turn around time is required (shopping centres, airports, hospitals, etc.).
  • Deformable. Type S1. Complies with standard UNE EN 12002
  • Swimming pool coverings. Suitable for immersion.
  • Suitable for fixing to any type of laminated plasterboard.

Substrates

  • Conventional cement based substrates.
  • Suitable for fixing to any type of laminated plasterboard.
  • Substrates must be resistant, stable, sound and clean, free of dust, demolding agents, organic products, etc.
  • All substrates must have the appropriate flatness. If not, a screed should be made using the same product up to a maximum of 5 mm at least 12 hours prior to bonding.
  • For a larger thickness use:
    • On screeds: NIVELAND 10R levelling paste or PAVILAND SELF-LEVELLING SCREED, according to substrate and requirements.
    • On facings: levelling mortars with appropriate tensile strength and curing retraction already finished.
  • In case of hot or windy weather conditions or when applying over absorbent substrates, it is advisable to wet the substrate and wait until the thin layer of water disappears.
 
  • Do not apply on plastered or painted surfaces.

Instructions for use

  • Mix the adhesive with 5-6 litres of clean water per bag. Mix manually or mechanically until a uniform consistency has been obtained, without any lumps.
  • Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes and remix.
  • Spread the mixed product onto the substrate with a trowel to a maximum surface area of 2 m2.
  • Spread with a notched trowel to adjust the thickness (see chart). Never apply product using the "spot bedding" technique
  • Only apply to the surface that can be faced within the product's open time in order to allow for weather conditions at that moment. On external walls it is recommendable for the adhesive ridges to be horizontal.
  • Lay the tiles, pressing and moving them to ensure total and correct adhesion to the ridges and correct adhesion with the entire surface.
  • For formats above 900 cm2 or for exteriors, it is recommendable to use the double bond method
  • Respect the construction joints (expansion, contraction, sealing, corner joints) and placing between bricks (minimum 2 mm inside and 5 mm outside).
  • Joints can be sealed after 3 hours.  Use the appropriate mortar from the MORCEMCOLOR RANGE, according to joint type.

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

Cautions and recommendations

  • Do not apply in conditions below 5ºC nor above 30ºC.
  • Do not apply when there is a risk of frost, rain, strong wind or direct sunlight.
  • In extreme weather conditions (strong winds or hot temperatures) drying may occur faster than normal.
  • On flooring and facings with a surface area greater than 50 m2 for interiors, and 30 m2 for exteriors, or for elongated areas over 15 lineal metres, it is recommended to leave separation or sealing joints filled with a deformable material (Pumalastic-PU).
  • Underfloor heating systems should be switched off at least 48 hours prior to use and should be switched back on again gradually at least 7 days after installing the flooring and pointing operation.
  • When using on plasterboard, ensure the substrate is fixed well to avoid any movement.
  • On interior floorings larger than 15 m2, it is advisable to keep a free perimeter expansion joint between the floor and the wall or pillar, hidden by a skirting board (of approximately 5 mm). These joints should be sealed with a deformable material (PUMALASTIC RANGE)
  • On façades and external cladding, the material should always be fixed with anchors or mechanical fixings, when some of the following conditions apply: format above 2400 cm2, one side of the largest piece is larger than 60 cm, weight above 40 kg/m2 or higher than 3 metres.
  • For use on cooling chambers, these should remain switched off until the correct adhesive curing has been obtained, at least 4 days depending on ambient conditions. 
  • Swimming pools can be refilled 7 days after applying the adhesive.
  • The water-tightness of a swimming pool must be ensured before using the product on it.
  • For elements reinforced with fibreglass meshing on the back, please consult our technical department.
  • The manageability and setting times of the adhesive can vary according to the temperatures, ventilation, substrate absorbency and covering materials used.
