Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive is a water resistant cement based compound, designed to produce a tough and high performance bonding which ensures quick workability and permanent installation for various kinds of tiles.

Composition

Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive is cement based, polymer modified, with aggregate particles and chemicals in the inter-facial zone:

  • 401- which is to be used with most of the ceramic tiles
  • 402- To be used with natural stone, marble, granite and other larger format tiles.

Mixing of Tilemaxx

Empty a 25kg bag into a clean bucket and add 6.5-7 litres of clean water to form a homogenous thick paste. Leave the paste to stand for 10 minutes before application/use.

Tilemaxx Application

Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive is applied using a notched trowel to the application surface to an average thickness as required. If the wall or floor is not level, level it using the Tile Adhesive as needed. The application with a notched trowel is very important so as to ensure an even thickness bed and a complete coverage of the tile application surface.

Packing and Coverage

Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive is available in 25kg bags with a waterproof polyethylene lining. One 25kg bag should cover approximately 5- 7sqm with a minimum application thickness of 3mm using a notched trowel.

Shelf Life

Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive has a shelf life of six (6) months when unopened. Once opened, the Tilemaxx Tile Adhesive should be used immediately.
Merits

Because of the grooves formed during application using a notched trowel, the following are some of its benefits.

  • High adhesive bond strength ensures permanent installation.
  • Good open wet time of the adhesive ensures better workability.
  • No soaking of tiles in water is required.
  • Has inbuilt flexibility and prevents crazing and shedding of tiles. It supports tile-on-tile, tile-on-wood and tile on metal.
  • Saves manpower, material and installation time. It also costs less than the traditional method of cement and sand plaster.

Surface preparation

Remove all adhesive remnants, dirt and foreign materials from inside the joints of the coated surfaces after adhesive is dried. Moisten the joints if the surface is exposed to high ambient temperature, sun and wind.

Mixing

Empty a 3kg bag into a clean bucket and add 1litre of water at a slow pace. Mix thoroughly until you obtain a homogenous paste.

Merits

  • Cement based with built-in durability and high bonding strength.
  • It's water resistant and ideal for use in wet areas and swimming pools.
  • Doesn't crack and is resistant to stains.
  • It's suitable for a joint width of 1-5mm.
  • Contains microbial antibacterial protection for hygienic and germ free floors.
