KERAKOLL has launched a type of adhesive made from gel technology. ‘Gone are the different formulations for different substrates and tile types that exist with standard C2 cement-based adhesives: with Biogel adhesives there are only two choices that have to be made – powder-form Biogel No Limits or two-part Biogel Extreme,’ the company says.
It adds that both are suitable for internal and external use on any substrate even deformable ones, and for use with ceramic, stone and porcelain as well as practically any other material.
Apart from the simplicity of choice, the advantages of the range are many: the adhesives stay the same consistency as when first mixed even after a long period in the bucket. The mix shrink, so it can be made the right thickness for the job and it’s softer and easier to work with.
The consistency means it wets the entire tile as well as the substrate, giving what the company claims is an excellent bond and superior performance. It’s high-grab and non-slip, even on walls, says Kerakoll, and the inclusion of resins gives it a high-shear strength which means it can be used on the most deformable substrates.
‘The icing on the cake is that this new type of resin has a low environmental impact giving Biogel No Limits a GreenBuilding Rating of 5. BioGel No Limits is available in grey or White Shock: a white so pure it makes other brands’ white adhesives look grey beside it,’ says Kerakoll.
Biogel No Limits and Biogel Extreme are available from Kerakoll UK.
