CEMIX TILE BOND LATEX is modified copolymer latex specially formulated to be used as a primer for porous substrates, wallboard, cement sheets, concrete, screed, timber etc. It can also be used as an additive in place of water to fortify, modify and improve grouts, screeds and certain tile adhesives. It improves workability, adhesion, and resistance to frost and chemical resistance. It also imparts a degree of flexibility and hydrophobicity. Please contact CEMIX Technical support for more details for large commercial applications.
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 bonding. New concrete should be left with a wood float finish and sufficiently aged for a minimum of 28 days. Shiny smooth surfaces on old concrete should be acid etched or scabbled. CEMIX cement screeds/floor levelers must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 7 days. All substrates should be securely fastened and properly supported to eliminate any movement which may cause cracking. For further information, contact the Cemix technical support.
