The experimental measurements were performed per EN 12004, in the Chemical Laboratory of DUROSTICK and were confirmed by the measurements of initial type from MIRTEC (Cert. no: 3353) 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 25%.

PROPERTIES


Cementitious, white adhesive for ceramic tiles, fortified with acrylic resins. Distinguished for its high initial and final bonding strengths, as it offers strong adhesion. After its final curing, it is resistant to moisture and frost. It has an extended open time.
Classified C2E per EN 12004. (MIRTEC/Cert. No. 3353).

APPLICATIONS


ACRYLIC is suitable for small and large size tile installations, even ones of low absorbence, on floor cement screeds and plastered walls, both indoors and out. Adding DUROSTICK ACRYLIC EMULSION in the mixing water, at a ratio of 1:1, further enhances its characteristics so as to meet the requirements of S1 class (deformable adhesive) per EN 12002. The improved (as per its flexibility) adhesive, is suitable for outdoor spaces that are exposed to adverse weather conditions or vibrations that generate, either from digging equipment working in adjacent areas or light earthquakes.

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 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 (6.5-7lt water to 25kg powder or 1.3-1.4lt 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.

ΝΟΤΕ


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, in 32 shades (same with the grout colors of DUROSTICK), ensures sealing without cracking at the junction of the tiles with the skirting and above it as well.
