Adhere Bonds Chennai

Excellent performance, highly polymer modified, high strength, flexible tile adhesive for fixing vitrified tiles and glass mosaics in interior and exterior situation. Suitable for walls and floors. ADHERE BONDS-005 is non-slip and water resistant.

FEATURES:

  • Suitable for indoor and tile on tile application.
  • Excellent adhesion and low shrinkage.
  • Curing not required.
  • Floor can be used after 24 hours.
  • Sufficiently flexible to accommodate physical and thermal movements.
  • Ready to use. Need only water to be mixed.

SURFACE PREPARATION:

Before starting any work ensure that the base is sufficiently flat to permit the specified flatness of finished tiling, bearing in mind the permissible minimum & maximum thickness of the bedding material. Suitable for tiling in the service conditions to which it will be exposed. Free from efflorescence, laitance, dirt and other loose material. Remove thoroughly by dry brushing. All tile and other non-porous surfaces should be cleaned down by washing with water containing detergent, then clean water.

MIXING AND APPLICATION:

Add clean water to ADHERE BONDS-005 and mix thoroughly until a lump-free mortar is obtained. A 25 kg bag will require approximately 7 litres of water.

  • The surface to be tiled should be clean and sound.
  • Spread no more than 1 m2 at a time, apply the adhesive to the wall or floor surface.
  • Comb the adhesive to the required depth (between 3-6mm) using a suitable trowel.
  • Press the tiles firmly into position with a slight twisting action, checking periodically that good contact is maintained with the back of each tile. Leave no voids behind tiles when solid-bed fixing.
  • Tiles should be fixed within 20 minutes of adhesive being applied, depending on the porosity of the surface and atmospheric conditions. Tiles can be adjusted up to 5-10 minutes after fixing. Touch the adhesive ribs periodically and if a skin has formed, remove the adhesive and apply a new layer.
  • Leave adequate joints between individual wall and floor tiles unless self spacing tiles are used.
  • Clean off surplus adhesive from the tile face and between joints.
  • Do not use in damp conditions.
