CEMIX PRE-MIXED PASTE ADHESIVE is a flexible, water resistant, ready to use, white, tile adhesive, designed for fixing a wide range of tiles onto a variety of substrates.
CEMIX PRE-MIXED PASTE ADHESIVE can be used on concrete, cement renders, screeds, fibrous cement sheeting, plasterboard and CEMIX approved waterproofing membranes. Suitable for use in interior wall and floor applications, including bathrooms, toilets, laundries and kitchens.
• Ready and easy to use
Approximately 2m2 per litre of product.
All workmanship must be carried out in accordance with AS3958.1.
The substrate should be free of dust, grease, wax, oil, dirt, loose plaster, laitance, curing compounds, paint and all other friable materials and contaminants likely to prevent the adhesive bonding.
New concrete should be left with a wood float finish and sufficiently aged as per manufacturer’s recommendations. All substrates should be structurally sound, securely fastened and properly supported to eliminate any movement that may cause cracking.
CEMIX screeds, floor levellers, plasters and approved waterproofing membranes must be allowed to cure.
It is recommended to prime the surface with a CEMIX TILE BOND LATEX before the application of CEMIX PRE-MIXED PASTE ADHESIVE.
CEMIX PRE-MIXED PASTE ADHESIVE is also suitable for tiling over timber floors, provided that a fibre cement sheet tile underlay is initially installed over the timber floor.
No mixing required.
1. Stir before use.
2. Spread the mixture evenly overly the surface with a suitably sized notched trowel.
3. Install the tiles with pressure, twisting to ensure good adhesion between the substrate and tile.
Note: A minimum final bed thickness between 3mm to 10mm is recommended for walls, and 6mm to 10mm for floors. Do not spread more than 1m2 of adhesive at any one time as skinning may occur, affecting final adhesion. Ensure that the tiles are fully supported with the adhesive when being laid.
DRYING & CURING:
Once the tiles have been laid, they must not be trafficked upon or disturbed for a minimum of 24 hours at 20°C. If application is over a CEMIX approved waterproofing membrane or a non-porous substrate, allow for a minimum of 48 hours at 20°C. Note that the cure time will be delayed if the temperature is below 20°C, if there is insufficient air circulation or if application is over a CEMIX approved waterproofing membrane.
Clean tools with water immediately after use.
STORAGE & SHELF LIFE:
Up to 12 months when stored in the original, unopened packaging, in a dry place at 23°C and 50% relative humidity.
Not suitable for tiling directly over flexible substrate i.e. timber, plywood, particleboard, MDF and Masonite etc. Not suitable for use with porcelain tiles. Not suitable for water immersion applications i.e. showers, baths, swimming pools and spas etc.
