areas of use
Use
High-elasticity laying of ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, marble and natural stone, on floors and walls, on absorbent and non-absorbent,
deformable substrates.
Substrates:
- mineral screeds Keracem® Eco Pronto e Keracem® Eco Prontoplus
- screeds with mineral binders Rekord® Eco and Keracem® Eco
- cement-based screeds
- prefabricated concrete or fresh concrete castings
- cement plasters and cement-lime mortar
- floors and walls in polyurethane resin, glazed tiles, cement-based and resin floor tiles, porcelain tiles
- wood, metals, rubber, PVC, linoleum
Flooring and walls, for internal and external use, in domestic, commercial and industrial applications, for street furniture, heated subfloors also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.
Do not use
In contact with polystyrene or on substrates which are not fully cured and subjected to moisture rising.
Superflex Eco Code: P325 2011/11 UK
Materials:
-
porcelain tiles, low thickness slabs, ceramic tiles, klinker, cotto, glass and ceramic mosaic, natural stone, marble, granite and recomposed materials also subjected to staining or deformation due to water absorption and thermal expansion
Instructions for use
Preparation of substrates
Substrates must be compact and consistent, free from dust, oil and grease, free from any rising damp, with no loose, flaky, or imperfectly
anchored parts. The substrate must be stable, without cracks and have already completed the curing period of hygrometric shrinkage.
Uneven areas must be corrected with suitable smoothing and finishing products.
Preparation
Superflex Eco is prepared by mixing together parts A and B from the bottom upwards, using a low-rev (≈ 400/min.) helicoidal agitator, respecting the preset ratio of 6,4 : 1,6 of the packs. Pour part B into the bucket containing part A, being careful to mix the two parts uniformly
until a smooth, even coloured mixture is obtained. The user must mix a quantity of adhesive which can be consumed within 1 hour at +23
°C / 50% R.H. Packs of Superflex must be stored at a temperature of ≈ +20 °C for at least 2/3 days prior to use.
Application
Superflex Eco must be applied with a suitable, toothed spreader of the type and dimensions most appropriate for the format and type
of tiles used. Using the smooth part of the spreader, apply a fine layer of product, pressing down onto the substrate in order to ensure
maximum adhesion. Press down each tile to allow for maximum coverage of the surface. In environments subjected to heavy traffic, in
external applications and wherever high-elasticity laying system is required, use the double-spread technique to ensure 100% application of the product to the rear of the tiles.
Cleaning
Residues of Superflex Eco can be cleaned from tools and covered surfaces with water and alcohol while the adhesive is still fresh. Once
cured, the adhesive can only be removed by mechanical means.
Special notes
To waterproof a monolithic concrete substrate, a surface levelling coat of ≈ 2 mm thickness must be applied with the smooth part of the
spreader. Then, adjust the thickness with the toothed side and apply a layer of Superflex Eco also on the back of each tile before laying.
