It can be used to bond a variety of different tiles to a variety of different substrates. It is fast setting, meaning you can commence grouting 16-24 hours @ 20°C after completion of tiling. Advantages „ Complies with ISO/AS13007.1:2013 - Class C2S1 „ Internal / external on wall and floor surfaces „ Used for fixing low porosity tiles „ Fast setting Description Emer-Proof Tilebond Flex is a premium grade, rubber modified, flexible white cement based tile adhesive. It is designed for bonding all types of ceramic, stone and mosaic tiles with the exception of moisture sensitive stone like marble, onto a variety of substrates like concrete, render, rendered brickwork, block work, Gyprock, plasterboard, fibre cement and particle board surfaces. Emer-Proof Tilebond Flex can be used to fix tiles over most water based waterproofing membranes. However it is advisable to contact the manufacturer prior to commencing. Properties Appearance: Off-white powder Bulk Density: 1.18 +/- 0.05 Open Time: Approx 20 minutes @ 20°C Drying Time @ 20°C: Approx 16 hours Pot-life: 45 minutes @20°C Standards Compliance Emer-Proof Tilebond Flex has been tested in accordance with ISO/AS13007.1:2013 and passes its requirements. Application Instructions „ All tiling should be carried out in accordance with April 2014 Page 1 AS3958.1:2007 - A Guide to Tiling „ Once the surface has been appropriately prepared in accordance with Parchem’s instructions, then apply the adhesive onto the substrate using a notched trowel. „ For floor tiling use a 10 mm x 10 mm square notched trowel for tiles up to 300 mm x 300 mm. For tiles 300 mm x 300 mm and larger, use a 12 mm x 12 mm square notched trowel. For mosaic tiles use a 6 mm x 6 mm square notched trowel. „ For wall tiling use a 6 mm x 6 mm square notched trowel for tiles up to 150 mm x 150 mm. For larger tiles than 150 mm x 150 mm use a 10 mm x 10 mm square notched trowel. „ Emer-Proof Tilebond Flex should be applied into the substrate at a rate of 1m² at a time. Application rates greater than this can result in the adhesive skinning. „ Once the adhesive skins, do not lay tiles into it, but remove it and apply fresh adhesive. „ When placing the tiles into the adhesive, press them in by sliding the tile back and forth at least 20mm across the trowel lines. Ensure no voids occur and full coverage of adhesive is under the tiles. „ For tiles 300mm x 300mm or larger, or tiles with lugs, grooves or uneven backing, it may be required to butter the back of the tile with the adhesive in addition to trowelling the adhesive onto the substrate. Apply a 1mm coating across the whole back of the tile. „ The final bed thickness of the adhesive should be at least 2 mm for wall tiling and 3 mm for floor tiling. „ Once the tiling is completed do not disturb the tiled surface for at least 16-24 hours at 20°C. „ Emer-Proof Tilebond Flex can be directly adhered to Emer-Proof 250, 695 and Emer-Proof 750 provided that the Emer-Proof 750 has been sand blinded and installed as per the current Technical Data Sheet. Preparation „ All concrete slabs must be allowed to cure for at least 7 days and have a wood float finish. „ All rendered surfaces must be allowed to cure for at least 24 hours prior to commencing tiling. „ The maximum variation in the plane of the concrete must not exceed 5 mm in 3 metres for floors and 4 mm in 2 metres for walls. „ Steel Trowelled or smooth dense concrete should be mechanically abraded. „ Ensure all surfaces are sound, dry and free from excessive movement, paint, oil, grease, wax, curing compounds, release agents and any other loose materials.
