A white flexible polymer modified, fast setting, cement based adhesive for bonding ceramic and stone tiles to porous
and non-porous surfaces subject to vibration and thermal movement.
• Exceeds the requirements of AS2358 and BS5385
• Instant grip when mixed to a thick paste consistency
• Superior performance to paste adhesives
A thick or thin bed internal and external floor and wall one-pack flexible adhesive for fixing over most substrates
eg: concrete, heated concrete slabs, cement render, fibre cement sheets, plasterboard, existing properly prepared
ceramic tiles, vinyl tiles and Construction Chemicals waterproof membranes in shower alcoves. Not suitable for
immersed or swimming pool application. Construction Chemicals provides other systems. Do not use over
Exceeds the performance requirements of AS2358 and BS5385 shear bond strength 1.47mpa (7 days).
20kg will cover 12-15m2 using a 6mm notched trowel, over a true surface.
The ceramic tile adhesive will be a water resistant, fast setting flexible polymer modified cement that conforms to
AS2358 and BS5385 and has a minimum shear bond strength of 1.4Mpa such as GRIPFLEX manufactured by
Construction Chemicals and shall be applied in accordance with the manufacturers application instructions.
The surface to be tiled must be firm and clean, free from dust, waxes, paint and other contaminants. Steel floated
concrete floors must be mechanically roughened and washed thoroughly prior to tiling. Dampen or prime building
boards, cement sheets, porous surfaces and concrete with PRIMER AND GROUT ADDITIVE.
Mix with clean water using 2-3 liters per 10kg to a thick creamy consistency. Pot life is approximately 2 hours,
depending on temperature. 20kg of Gripflex can make approximately 18 litres of paste.Allow to stand for 5 minutes
and restir before use.
Approximately 6-8 hours, depending on temperature, humidity and surface porosity.Allow longer for dense tiles.
Apply adhesive with a notched trowel (6mm x 6mm for walls and 10mm x 10mm for floors) or butter the back of
tiles 3-5mm thick.The final bed thickness must not be less than 2mm for walls and 3mm for floors, to accommodate
movement. Spread about 1 metre at a time.Tiles must be set in place while the adhesive is still wet on the surface.
Press tiles firmly into the adhesive using a slight twisting motion.Tiles must be firmly bedded into the adhesive so no
voids occur beneath the tiles.
GROUTING: Grout after adhesive has set, approximately 6-8 hours. Use KEMGROUT mixed with PRIMER
AND GROUT ADDITIVE or FLEXIBLE GROUT ADDITIVE.
SIZES: Available in 20kg bags only.
