FAP LATEX TILE ADHESIVE is a specially formulated two component system used for fixing tile, stones, slabs, marbles, etc. in interior and exterior wall and floors. Due to the combination of latex and powder, the mixed material after complete curing exhibits excellent water resistance, flexibility and high bond strength.
FAP provides a comprehensive technical support service to specifiers, end users and contractors and is able to offer on-site technical assistance.
Surface Preparation : Prior to tile fixing, ensure the background surface is clean, dry and free from all dirt, dust, debris and any loosely adhering materials.
Mixing: Mix Part A with Part B completely. Using a slow speed drilling machine mix thoroughly and ensure its uniform mix. If required add more water to the required quantity for the purpose of consistency. Hand mixing is only acceptable for very small quantities and in general is not recommended.
Application: Apply FAP LATEX TILE ADHESIVE on to the background surface-floor or wall using a suitable trowel and fix the tiles immediately after the material is trowelled. With a slight twisting action to an angle of 45º adjust the tiles so that the material is spread on to the complete area of the tiles and fix it to the required position. Once the tile is fixed, remove the excess material immediately and finish it neatly. This ensures hundred percent coverage of the material on to the tile and to the background surface. Continue laying the tiles as required in this manner.
Do not apply the adhesive to an area that is of a size that cannot be completed within its open time.
Approximately, for a 3mm bed thickness of tile fixing the coverage may be 4kg/m², provided the background surface is smooth and free of undulations.
FAP LATEX TILE ADHESIVE is supplied in 30 kg units and it has a minimum shelf life of 12 months provided it is stored under cover, out of direct sunlight.
