A silver-grey, highly flexible, high-coverage, extra-rapid-set, cementitious, thin, medium and floating-bed tile adhesive for efficient laying of tiles and discolouration-sensitive natural stone units with full rear-face wetting using floating method. Particularly suitable for large-format units and also on calcium sulfate screeds. With high crystalline water binding capacity. Low-chromate to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XVII.

Features and benefits:

  • Early high strength, walkable and groutable after only three hours (approximately).
  • Meets C2 EF S1 requirements to DIN EN 12 004.
  • Silver-grey adhesive colour, also suitable for light-coloured, translucent natural stone types.
  • For deformation-sensitive tiles.
  • For large-format units.
  • Ideal for use in conjunction with tile levelling systems.
  • Consistency adjustable for thin, medium and floating-bed laying.
  • EMICODE system of GEV (German Association for Control of Emissions in Products for Flooring Installation): EC1PLUS R (‘very-low-emission-plus’) rating.
  • CE marked (CRP-DE3/419-25.1.eng, EN 12 004:2007).

Applications:

  • Stoneware and fully vitrified stoneware tiles, clinker floor tiles, mosaic, light-coloured, discolouration-sensitive and translucent natural stone units, cast stone units, terracotta, dishing-prone, resin-bonded tiles, e.g. agglomerate tiles. Particularly suitable for large-format fully vitrified stoneware units. For fast-track refurbishment/ renovation on tightly scheduled projects. For use in private housing as well as in commercial and industrial facilities subject to high mechanical loads.
  • For floors, indoors and outdoors.
