EPOMIX MG 450

EPOMIX MG 450 ADHESIVE FOR FAÇADE CERAMIC TILES (POWDER+LIQUID), up to 75 m. height

Product Description

Nanotechnology cement acrylic based facing tile adhesive, grey color, two-component, including specific polymeric additives providing excellent results, frost-proof, capable to bonding at high altitudes, enriched with mixturesenhancing potential of the product usage.

Adhesive conforms to the requirements of AZS 039-2000 (TS-11140 - 1993) standard “Adhesives – cement based (hydraulic conjunction), suitable for glazed, ceramic, and floor tiles”.

Fields of Application

This ceramic adhesive can be applied in the following areas:

Adhesive bonding of differently sized ceramic, porcelain ceramic, cotto tiles, marble, granite, and other natural stones, decorative bricks and other similar facing materials onto building faces at different altitudes.

Adhesive bonding of facing tiles, such as marble and granite, having dimensions 60 cm x 60 cm at 8 meter altitude; facing tiles having dimensions 40 cm x 40 cm at 15 meter altitude, and facing tiles having dimensions 15cm x 30 cm at 15-75 meter altitude onto such building face surfaces as concrete, plaster, and floor plaster.

Advantages

Can be used in different weather conditions;

High quality adhesive for bonding ceramic and other facing materials onto vertical and horizontal surfaces at high altitude;

No sliding along vertical surfaces;

Easy preparation and use;

Resistant to freezing and warm weather conditions.

Application procedures

Preparation of the surfaces. Please pay attention to the surface to be used: it should be firm, dry, clean, and should have required dimensions; the surface should be totally free of fat and paraffin residues deteriorating adhesive force. In case the surface has 5-6 mm deep cracks or pores, they should be filled with EPOSEMENT mixture the day before use. In addition the surface to be used should first be dampened or primed with EPOLATEX primer.

Preparation of the mixture. Carefully pour 25 kg of powder mix into 7 liters of the liquid and mix till it is entirely homogeneous. Give the mixture 3-5 minutes to set, mix again before application.

Application. Apply thin coat of the mixture onto the surface using flat side of the trowel. Then trowel over the applied mixture with toothed side of the trowel according to the tile dimensions. It is recommended to use combined method of gluing for large-size tiles (according to this method adhesive is applied onto the surface and combed, and it is applied also onto the back side of the facing tile, whereupon the tile is pressed to the combed surface).

The right moment for gluing the tile onto the surface with applied mixture is defined by fingertip control (pressing) of the mixture. If the mixture sticks to the finger the tiles can be applied to the surface. This period should not exceed 30 minutes. In case the mixture applied to the surface has been coagulated, it should be scrapped, and tiles should be laid after repeated application of the mixture and combing it with toothed trowel.

When using large-size facing materials apply the adhesive in horizontal direction, and do not start to lay the next row before the previous completed row has achieved initial resistance force. Leave one spacing gap each 35 m in vertical direction.  Prepared mixture should be used within 3 hours. We do not recommend to use the mixture after this period expired and crust formed. Filling of joints can be executed on walls in 24 hours after application of mixture, and in 48 hours on floorings.

Recommendations. If at the time of application of EPOMIX MG 450 adhesive the environmental temperature exceeds the limits of +50C- +300C range, the required temperature should be provided. The adhesive should not be used in warm (above +300C), rainy and windy weather conditions. Ceramics having high moisture absorption degree should be saturated with water before use. After the useful life expiration the EPOMIX MG 450mixture in no case should be diluted with water or fresh powder mix. After use all hand tools and devices should be cleaned with water. After hardening the EPOMIX MG 450adhesive can be removed from the surface by mechanical means only.

Shelf Life and Storage Method

The powder component can bestored during 12 months packed in original sacks in dry conditions on wooden racks, maximum 10 sacks per rack. The liquid component can be stored during 12 months in plastic containers placed one upon the other in three layers.

Warnings

taking into consideration cement base and complex composition of the EPOMIX adhesive mixture, immediately wash it with water in case of contact with skin or eyes;

do not add to the mixture any substances not mentioned in the method of application;

parameters indicated above have been received on the basis of laboratory tests conducted in the ambient conditions of +230C±20C temperature and 50% + 5% humidity. Depending on the actual ambient conditions these parameters are subject to change.
