Features and applications

  • Ceramic application over TRADITERM CERAMIC (SATE/ETICS) System.
  • Product certified in accordance with DIT No. 605/14, for installing ceramic over the TRADITERM CERAMIC (SATE/ETICS) System
  • Non-slip. Excellent initial bonding.
  • Long open time, allows for the repositioning of tiles.
  • Highly Deformable. Type S2. 


  • External thermal insulation system TRADITERM CERAMIC (SATE/ETICS).
  • The base coat of the system to be treated with ceramic, must have been previously cured for at least 48 hours.
  • In case of hot or windy weather conditions it is advisable to wet the substrate and wait until the thin layer of water disappears.

Instructions for use

  • At least 48 hours after applying the last Traditerm mortar base coat, the ceramic is applied to the system with TRADITERM CERAMIC adhesive.
  • The  TRADITERM CERAMIC adhesive product consists of two components: a bag of mortar and a container of liquid resin, which must be mixed mechanically in its entirety without any other additives, until a uniform consistency has been obtained.
  • Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes and remix.
  • Spread the mixed product onto the substrate (TRADITERM CERAMIC (SATE/ETICS) System) with a trowel to a maximum surface area of 1 m2.
  • Spread with a notched trowel to adjust the thickness (see chart).
  • With the aid of a trowel, spread the product over the surface of the ceramic tile (using the double bonding technique).
  • Lay the tiles, pressing and moving them to ensure total and correct adhesion to the grooves and correct adhesion with the entire surface.
  • Respect the construction joints:
    • Expansion Joints.
    • Partitioning Joints – Carry out every 3 vertical metres and 4 horizontal metres. Subsequently seal with the Pumalastic Range.
    • Joints between tiles – Minimum thickness of 4 mm. After at least 24 hours after fixing the tiles, grout with the Morcem Colour Plus Range.
