Elastacrete-FLEXIBLE ACRYLIC ADDITIVE FOR KEMGRIP, CEMENT AND MORTAR
ELASTACRETE replaces water in portland cement and mortar mixes to make an adhesive that has flexibility,
high strength, improved bond strength and is chemical, vibration and shock resistant.
Bedding and bonding ceramic tiles, granite, slate, glass tiles, stone, marble and terrazzo tiles or slabs vertically or
horizontally to interior or exterior surfaces of cement render, brick, block, compressed cement sheeting.
Use for thin or thick bed fixing. It is unaffected by high humidity and can be used in immersed applications.
ELASTACRETE’s high shear tensile and bond strength make it ideal for areas subject to damp and humid
conditions, vibration and thermal movements.
Surfaces must be free from dirt, dust, grease and other contaminants. Steel floated concrete floors must be acid
etched prior to tiling.
6lt per 20kg bag KEMGRIP STD/FLOOR AND WALL.
Exceeds the performance requirements of AS2358 and BS5385 Shear Bond Strength 34kg/cm2 (3.33Mpa)
The ceramic tile adhesive will be a premixed flexible acrylic cement and mortar additive that conforms to AS2358
and BS5385 and has a minimum shear bond strength of 34kg/cm (3.33Mpa) such as ELASTACRETE manufactured
by Construction Chemicals and shall be applied in accordance with the manufacturing application instruction.

Elastacrete replaces water (Water must not be
added). Mix sufficient to last 30-60 minutes.
Allow to stand 5-10 minutes and restir before use.
ELASTACRETE is mixed with KEMGRIP STANDARD
for 6mm and 10mm notched trowelled application in
the ratio of 1lt ELASTACRETE to 4kg KEMGRIP
For 12mm notch trowel or thick bed application mix 1lt
Elastacrete with 6kg Mortar (2kg cement : 4kg sand).
Irregular or rough surfaces should be levelled with a
render coat of 1 litre ELASTACRETE to 2kg cement
to 4 parts sand, applied over a bond coat of 1 litre
ELASTACRETE to 2kg cement.
Apply the adhesive with a notched trowel, 6mm for
walls, 10mm for floors, spreading only 1 m2 at a time
and press the dry tiles or slabs firmly into the wet
adhesive using a slight twisting motion so no voids
appear beneath the tiles. Irregular backed tiles and
large tiles or slabs should be buttered flat or covered
with adhesive before pressing into the adhesive ribs
to ensure complete bond.
Allow 24 hours before grouting with KEMGROUT.
Tiles will be trafficable after 24-48 hours depending
on the temperature and adhesive thickness.
