Additional information

Composition

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 interior walls and floors or on exterior floors.
  • Suitable for all types of ceramic tiles.
  • No need to wet tiles or substrates thanks to its high water-retaining capacity.
  • Non slip. Excellent initial adherence.
  • Long open time. Allows rectification.
  • Superb adherence and correct setting with low-porosity materials such as porcelain stoneware.
  • Suitable for pavements with intense traffic.
  • Suitable for up to 40 x 40 cm pieces in exterior claddings, and up to 3 m high.

Substrates

  • Conventional cement-based substrates.
  • Indoor ceramic cladding and flooring.
  • Ceramic flooring.
  • 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. For greater thickness, use traditional dry mortars or levelling paste. 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, paint or on elements prone to disintegrate.
  • 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).
  • 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 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.
  • Tiled areas of walls and floors above 50 m² indoor and 30 m² outdoor or elongated more than 15 linear m it is recommended to divide them with joints filled with a deformable grout (PUMALASTIC-PU).
  • 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 (PUMALASTIC-PU).
  • On floorings with underfloor heating, apply when substrate is at room temperature (between 5ºC and 30ºC).
  • On floors with underfloor heating; this should be switched off at least 48 hours prior to use and should be switched back on again gradually after at least 7 days of installing the flooring and pointing operation.
  • When using on plasterboard, ensure the substrate is fixed well to avoid any movement.
  • For slate and substrates that are sensitive to humidity use PEGOLAND FLEX RECORD.
  • For gypsum based substrates, use PEGOLAND ESPECIAL YESO, PEGOLAND PORCELÁNICO YESO or an adhesive from LINEA PEGOLAND PROFESIONAL, 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.
  • 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.
  • On ceramic pavements (overlays), remove the badly adhered pieces and fill the gaps with mortar the day before the application of the new tiling. Ensure that the old ceramic is free of traces of fats or waxes, if necessary proceed to the milling of the enameled surface until the loss of brightness of the old ceramic. In case of doubt, make a preliminary test to establish the suitability of the solution provided
  • When working with tiles that can be stained due to their high water absorption should be placed with quick-setting adhesives. It is recommended the use of PEGOLAND FAST FLEX C2FTE S1.
