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: 3354) 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 40%.

 

PROPERTIES

Cementitious, white adhesive for ceramic tiles and granite, fortified with acrylic resins. Its high plasticity and thixotropy distinguish the product for its bonding properties and zero vertical slip. It allows for coatings of up to 12mm without ‘sagging’ and has an extended open time. Suitable for installations, indoors and out, of large tiles and thin slabs with exceptional resistance to moisture and frost. Classified C2TE per EN 12004. (MIRTEC/Cert. No. 3354).

APPLICATIONS

PLUS is suitable for installing low and non absorbent tiles and granite of all types (pic. 3-6), in bathrooms (pic.1), showers, fountains, outdoor areas with high levels of humidity (pic. 2) and floors subject to intense stresses. Suitable for heavy traffic areas such as car showrooms, airport terminals, shopping malls. Recommended for installations on existing mosaic floors or floor tiles. 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.

 

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. ApplicationEmpty 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) 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 the 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 INSTRUCTIONS



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

PACKAGING



Paper bag of 25kg on 1,500kg pallet

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.
