Acefix Self Levelling Adhesive
A pourable, high quality, water resistance tile and stone setting adhesive with additional working time, exceptional flexibility and high bond strength. It is prepared with a unique blend of carefully selected superior grade ingredients, premium cement and treated aggregates. It eliminates back buttering to the large format tiles and increases installation speed. It is a smooth, flexible adhesive that provides excellent wet-out on the back of the floor tiles and eliminate the voids.
- Excellent quality, Easy to fix, does not slip
- Interior and exterior application, Suitable only for floor
- Large format tiles can directly be bed-in, without back buttering hence increases the installation speed
- With its excellent wet-out property on back of the tile, it eliminates voids and hollow sound
- Excellent handling characteristics through extended open and adjustment time
- Ideal for all type of tile and stones
- Easy mixing with liquid, nice consistency
- Very good mechanical property
- Complies to Indian and International standards (ANSI/EN/BIS)
Use required amount of water (approximately 400 ml for 1 kg powder) for proper mixing. Take water in a clean pail and pour powder slowly under controlled mixing. Mix by hand or use slow speed drill mixer (150 – 200 rpm speed) to achieve smooth slurry consistency. Let the homogeneously mixed adhesive slurry slake or stand 3-5 minutes, stir again and use. Stir occasionally, but do not add more water.
Pour the adhesive slurry over floor surface where tiling to be done. Use a required size notch trowel to ensure proper coverage under tiles. Using the flat side of the trowel, spread the slurry. With the help of notched or teeth side of the trowel held at 45° angle, comb in one direction. Place the tile and press firmly into place in a perpendicular motion across ridges, moving back and forth. The perpendicular motion flattens ridges and closes valleys, allowing maximum coverage. Adjust the tile promptly and beat it in with a beating block and rubber mallet. Periodically pull up a tile and check the back to ensure proper adhesive coverage. If the material has skinned over, recomb with the notch trowel. If too dry, remove and replace the dry material with fresh material. Material in the bucket will remain workable for approximately 3- 4 hours.

- Cement bed
Surfaces must be structurally strong. Remove all grease, oil, dirt, curing compounds, sealers, adhesives or any other contaminant that would prevent good bonding. Glossy or painted surfaces must be sanded, or abraded, and stripped off all contaminants. Concrete or plaster must be cured 28 days prior to bonding unless it is made with Acescreed or Aceplast Premium. Concrete must be free of efflorescence and not subject to hydrostatic pressure. Concrete slabs should have a course finish to enhance the bond. Roughen the surface by sanding or abrading, then rinse and allow to dry. Expansion joints should never be bridged with setting material. Surface temperature should be maintained above 10° C or below 38° C to achieve proper bond.

Available in 30 kg bags in grey and white colour.
12 months if stored in cool and dry area in unopened bag. Shelf life is calculated from the month of manufacturing of the product.
Approximately 160 sft per 30 kg bag for 1.5 mm bed thickness. Coverage will vary depending on surface undulation and application variances.
Curing and protection:
Curing time is affected by ambient, surface temperatures and humidity. Generally, light foot traffic can be allowed in 16 hours at 25°C, normal foot traffic in 24 hours and heavy foot traffic in 7days after installation.
Grouting can be done after 24 hrs of installation of tiles. Use Acegrout superfine series grout for up to 3mm joints and Acegrout coarse series grout for 3 - 12 mm joints. Use Acepoxy Epoxy grout for stain and chemical resistance, hygienic grout. Please call customer service executive for more information.

Use required amount of water or recommended latex admixture for proper mixing. Take liquid in a clean pail and pour powder slowly under controlled mixing. Mix by hand or use slow speed drill mixer (150 – 200 rpm speed) to achieve smooth, paste-like consistency. Let the homogeneously mixed adhesive mixture slake or stand 3 -5 minutes, stir again and use. Stir occasionally, but do not add more water.
