Elasticized adhesive mortar for marble and mosaic ANSERGLOB BCX 46 is used for indoors and outdoors cladding of concrete, bricked, cement-lime, cement-sand surfaces and also surfaces which are affected by periodic deformations (precipitation and dynamic stress) by marble tiles and by other nature light colored stone and also by glass and mosaic tiles which size is more than 300x300 mm. Adhesive mortar can be applied for cladding of pools and reservoirs, heating and monolithic floors, roofs, terraces. Adhesive mortar is effective at cladding the surface without removal old tiles by method “tile on tile”.
The surface preparation is realized according to State Standard of Ukraine (DSTU N B A.3.1-23:2013, DSTU N B A.2.6-212:2016) and State Building Codes of Ukraine (DBN В.2.6-162:2010. Surface must be structurally sound, clean, dry and free from dust, grease, dirt, lime, wax, oil or emulsion paints. Fragile areas of substrate must be removed. 24 hours before tiling surface irregularity till 10 mm must be leveled by adhesive mortar ANSERGLOB BCX 46. Big irregularities of walls are leveled by the plaster mortar ANSERGLOB ВСТ 20. Floors are leveled by cement screed ANSERGLOB LFS 70 or self-leveling screed ANSERGLOB LFS 72. Before applying substrates with strong sorption must be treated by one of deeply penetrating emulsions ANSERGLOB and exposed for 4 hours. Before applying substrates with low sorption and also surfaces which are tiled by method “tile on tile” must be treated by ANSERGLOB EG 62 and exposed from 3 to 6 hours.
Prepared mortar should be spread by tile trowel, spatula or float on cladding surface. After applied mortar is combed by notch trowel or spatula with the U-shaped notches or square notches, which form equal combs of the same altitude on applied surface. Depending on thickness and dimensions of cladding tiles notch size of trowel is selected (for example, for tile size 20x20 cm trowels with the square notch size 6 mm and more are used). Tiles are installed in turn on the surface, covered by adhesive mortar, and pressed evenly. The tile can be moved during 15 min from the moment of installation if required. Thickness of adhesive layer between tile and substrate must be minimally 2 mm to show its full curing. Using handmade tile with unleveled back side and some cut ceramic and stone tile additional spreading of adhesive mortar by rectangular trowel on tile back side is required in order to achieve full contact between tile and substrate. Applying of adhesive mortar on back side of tile is additional measure and does not replace its spreading on the substrate. Joint width between tiles must be not less than 1,5 mm.
Tiles are prohibited to wet preliminary!
Note: Application should be complied at temperature above +5°С and below +30°С. All the mentioned recommendations are effective at temperature of +20°С and air humidity of 60%. Under the other conditions crusting, stiffening and curing time may be changed.
Average consumption of the mixture is 1,3 kg per m2 on 1 mm of layer.
Dry mixture must be poured into container with clear water according to ratio 0,20-0,22 liters of water per 1 kg of mixture (5,0-5,5 liters of water per 1 bag of 25 kg) when at the same time manually or mechanically mixed (by the drill on low revs) to obtain the kindred and elastic mass. After exposing 5 min mortar must be mixed again and used during 2 hours.
