Highly flexible powdered tile adhesive for indoor and outdoor use.
Foby+ Flexmortel is a highly flexible powdered tile adhesive and, after adding water, a ready-to-use, thin-bed mortar that sets hydraulically. Foby+ Flexmortel is easy to apply, offers high initial adhesion and a wide range of applications. After hardening, the adhesive will remain resistant to moisture and frost for years to come. The permanent flexibility makes the adhesive highly suitable for substrates that are subject to light movement or use.
Foby+ Flexmortel is suitable for bonding ceramic wall and floor tiles (including porcelain stoneware), mosaic tiles and natural stone tiles onto practically any substrate. The use of Foby+ Flexmortel is particularly recommended:
- for project-based tiling adhesion.
- for adhesion on substrates with a surface critical for the adhesion, e.g. anhydrite floors.
- on substrates that are subject to temperature variations such as with floor heating or on balconies and terraces.
- for adhesion over old tile layers
- for adhesion on waterproof chipboard, plasterboard, plaster block and counter tops.
- Natural stone, including the translucent and light colours, can be installed using Foby+ Flexmortel.
Foby+ Flexmortel is mixed with clean tap water in a clean mixing tub to produce a smooth, sturdy mass. 25 kg of powder is mixed into 7 litres of water and 5 kg is shaken in 1.4 litres of water and mixed using a mixing drill. After allowing to ripen for approximately 5 minutes, mix the mortar once again vigorously. The mixture is now ready and has an application time of approximately 4 hours. Apply the adhesive to the substrate (using the ‘floating’ method) with a tile trowel with rectangular notches. Select a notch depth that offers the tile at least 80% adhesive coverage. Adhesive must only be applied to an area of the surface to enable the tiles to still be pressed into the fresh adhesive in a sliding motion. With floor heating, follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding commissioning. Also consult the guidelines in the Foby+ adhesive guidelines. When using the adhesive outdoors, for tiles with a very limited water-absorption capacity and for use underwater, adhesive must be applied to 100% of the tile in accordance with the floating-buttering method. Residual adhesive must immediately be removed using a damp cloth and tools must be rinsed with water.
