Flooring and tiling adhesives - UltraTileFix
ULTRATILEFIX, part of Instarmac Group, is reportedly home to a portfolio of contractor-friendly, premium floor tile adhesives suitable for the flooring industry.
For the installation of ceramic and porcelain floor tiles, UltraTileFix recommends the use of a standard set tile adhesive such as ProSet SS. ‘Formulated with extended workability, ProSet SS can receive light foot traffic within 18 hours and is suitable for installations where speed of set isn’t essential,’ the company says.
It adds that UltraTileFix ProRapid PB is a rapid-setting, cementitious floor adhesive with increased bond strength. Polymer modified for an enhanced performance, ProRapid PB is suitable for use with ceramic, mosaic and natural stone floor tiles, has a 60-minute pot-life and can be applied at depths of 3-12mm.
The flexible properties of ProRapid RS rapid set tile adhesive makes it suitable for use in wet areas and with underfloor heating.
Polymer modified and formulated with enhanced adhesion, ProRapid RS is suitable for use with most common substrates and has a set time of just 2.5 hours.
Also available are ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive and ProFlex SPES standard set flexible tile adhesive. Both adhesives are classified as S1 in accordance with EN 12004 and are said to have a high level of deformation for greater tolerance to movement.
‘The S1 properties of ProFlex SP and ProFlex SPES make them the perfect choice for timber floors, swimming pools and underfloor heating systems. If you’re looking for a floor adhesive which boasts ultimate S2 flexibility then ProFlex S2 is the tile adhesive for you,’ says UltraTileFix.
‘The superior flexible properties of ProFlex S2 makes it ideal for areas where movement or vibration can occur including plywood, chipboard overlays, swimming pools and underfloor heating.’
What’s more, the company says, ProFlex S2 has been formulated using FibreBond technology – a process which involves the addition of fibre particles for superior non-slip properties and thixotropic behaviour.
Completing the range is ProFlex CSA – a calcium sulphate aluminate-based adhesive for compatibility with calcium sulphate substrates. This compatibility ensures low tension throughout the curing process without the need for barrier primers, says UltraTileFix.
‘Every floor tile adhesive in the UltraTileFix range is available in a 20kg contractor-friendly bag, features a handy product selection table, which makes choosing the perfect product swift and easy, and boasts a lifetime guarantee – giving you complete confidence UltraTileFix products are designed to last,’ says the company.
‘Manufacturing premium products and delivering first-class service has always been at the heart of Instarmac. With this in mind, Instarmac is delighted to receive the ‘Excellence in Supply and Services’ award at the 2018 TTA Awards.’
