The experimental measurements were performed per EN 12004, in the Chemical Laboratory of DUROSTICK and were confirmed by the measurements of initial type from the ZUS institute(No 0100-28453/28692). The following instrumentation was used: • Flexion-compression: CONTROLS MCCC66 • Detachment: BRAIVE DYNATEST
• NOTE: The product exceeds on average the statutory requirements for C2 adhesive by 65%.

PROPERTIES

Cementitious, flexible white tile adhesive, fortified with acrylic resins.
Distinguished for its strong adhesion, its zero vertical slip and resistance to moisture and frost. Its high thixotropy allows for coatings in thicknesses of up to 15mm without ‘sagging’ while it has a extended open time.
Classified C2TΕ S1 per ΕΝ 12004 and per EN 12002.
The measurements for the certification were performed in the accredited European institute ZUS (No 0100-28453/28692).

APPLICATIONS

GOLD is suitable for bonding low and non absorbent tiles like granite, glass mosaic, cotto, klinker, porcellanato, porcellanato smaltato and decorative bricks, regardless of their dimensions (pic. 5-6).
It is ideal for every kind of stable substrate, such as cement screeds, brushable cementitious substrates, prefabricated concrete walls, existing tiles, terrazzo and marble. Distinguished for its endurance to expansions and contractions indoors, associated with radiant heating (pic. 3), and outdoor open spaces with intense temperature variations, such as balconies and terraces. It provides excellent adhesion in areas with permenant moisture, such as athletic and swimming pools (pic.4), fountains, bathrooms (pic.2), showers etc. Its high thixotropy allows for wall tile installations top down. It is suitable for heavy traffic areas such as car showrooms, airport terminals, shopping malls, super markets, as well as catering halls (pic.1), and public areas in general. Adding DUROSTICK ACRYLIC EMULSION in the mixing water, at a ratio of 1:1, improves its technical characteristics, so as to meet the requirements of S2 class (highly deformable adhesive), per ΕΝ 12002.


USE

1. Surface preparation
The application surface have to be sound, clean, free of loose materials, dust, paint, grease and oil. The surface have to be soaked before the application.
It is necessary to prime all absorbent substrates and aircrete, using DUROSTICK ACRYLIC EMULSION or D-20, at a mixing ratio of 1:1 with water.
It is necessary to prime all drywall using the DUROSTICK micromolar stabilizer, AQUAFIX or SOLVENT BASED PRIMER. Lightweight or else, unstable cement screeds, must necessarily be primed with DUROSTICK ACRYLIC EMULSION or D-20 at a ratio of 1part additive to 2 parts water or 1 part DUROMAX to 5 parts water.
Follow all balconies, terraces, bathrooms, showers and swimming pool applications by coating the substrate with HYDROSTOP FLOOR, at 2-3 successive, crosswise layers to ensure the waterproofing of the substrate.

2. Application
Empty the adhesive into a clean container with cool water at a ratio of 2 parts water to 5 parts powder (7-7.5lt water to 25kg powder or 1.4-1.5lt water to 5kg powder) and mix with a low speed, electric mixer until a lump free, homogenous mass is created. Allow the mixture to mature for 5-10 minutes. During use mix periodically, without adding extra water. Apply the adhesive using a notched trowel, and spread on the substrate. Then, coat as much surface as is required to work for the next 15-30 minutes (depending on  weather conditions), thus avoiding skin formation. Finally, install the tiles in the selected position by tapping softly with a rubber mallet.

 

CONSUMPTION



3-5kg/m², depending on the size of the notch of the trowel, the smoothness of the substrate and the dimensions of the tiles.

CLEANING

Clean all tools with water, immediately after use.

STORAGE

Store in tightly closed packages, in dry and shaded places for a minimum of 12 months after production date.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

The product contains Portland cement. Before using, refer to the cautions on the product’s package or the Material Safety Data Sheet.

PACKAGING

Carton box with 4 pcs. of 5kg each one
Paper bag of 25kg on 1,200kg pallet

NOTE

On outdoor surfaces, it is highly recommended to create expansion joints every 16-20m². Prime the expansion joints with PRIMER-PU, to improve grip, and seal them with the polyurethane sealant, DUROFLEX-PU. Similarly, seal all the joints (5-8mm) at the junction of the tiles and vertical surfaces throughout the perimeter. Alternatively the application of DS-POLYMER sealant, available in 32 shades (same ones with the grout colors of DUROSTICK), ensures sealing without cracking at the junction of the tiles with the skirting and above it as well. On floors with radiant heating, it is recommended to create expansion joints every 20m² and fill them with DS-POLYMER sealant, available in 32 shades.
