High Performance Tile Adhesive SW-800 (White)
High performance, white, water resistant cementitious ceramic tile adhesive with extended open time and reduced slip.
Fields of Application
— Interior and exterior ﬂoor and wall bonding of all types and sizes of ceramic tiles, granite, marble, natural stones, porcelain ceramic, cotto, clinker on cementitious renders, cementitious screeds and concrete.
— Bonding of tiles on existing ceramic tiles or marble.
— The substrates must be notched or primed with SIMENTEK BETONEX before bonding of tiles on existing ceramic tiles.
— Bonding of tiles on places subject to heavy trafﬁc like shopping malls, hospitals, schools.
— Perfect adherence.
— Can be applied on vertical surfaces even for bonding of heavy tiles without sagging.
— Easily trowellable.
— Substrates must be sound, free from oil, grease, and sufﬁciently dry. Cementitious substrates must be cured.
— Use SIMENTEK SGP500 in case of uneven substrates to get a sound and ﬂat surface.
— Wipe the back side of tiles with water if dusty.
— Pour 25 kg of SW-800 into 5.5-7 litres of clean water slowly and mix to obtain a homogeneous paste free from lumps. A low speed mixer is recommended to mix. Do not add any additive which is not mentioned in the instructions for the application
— Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes to mature.
— After 1-2 minutes remixing, the paste is ready for application.
— Spread the mortar onto the substrate with notched trowel of which notch size is appropriate to the tile dimension (See Notch Size Recommendation Table) To obtain a good adhesion ﬁrst apply a thin coat of SW-800 with the ﬂat side of trowel, then notch with the toothed side of trowel.
— Application of large tiles (greater than 40×40 cm), on existing tiles or which are subject to frost or heavy trafﬁc, SW-800 should be applied also on the back of tiles. (combined method)
— Open time is 20 minutes. Install the tiles within this period with pressure. Unfavorable climatic conditions (high temperature, low humidity, wind, etc) can reduce this time to just a few minutes. If this period exceeds, scratch and discard the mortar.
— Dispose mortars of which pot life is expired. Clean tools and hands with water, surfaces with a damp cloth.
— Tiles installed with SW-800 must not be subject to water for at least 24 hours.
— Since contains cement, irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.
— Indicated consumption is a general information. It may change depending on the application conditions and surface properties.
— Store in dry medium. Do not stack more than 10 bags on top of each other.
— 25 kg multi-ply paper bags.
