About EWI-104 Universal Tile Adhesive
The EWI-104 Universal Tile Adhesive is made with Portland Cement, mineral fillers and polymers to create an elastic, C2TE class adhesive for interior and exterior tiling. Universal Tile Adhesive is perfect for applying natural stone tiles, ceramics and clinker tiles.
Universal Tile Adhesive is easy to use due to its long correction time, allowing you to adjust tiles after application. It provides a long-lasting, waterproof, frost proof universal adhesive finish – ensuring your tiles will remain secure. This Universal Tile Adhesive comes in 25kg bags as a dry mix, so only requires the addition of water before it can be used.
Intended uses for Universal Tile Adhesive
EWI-104 Tile Adhesive is intended for use when applying all types of wall and floor ceramic tiles (ceramics, terracotta, clinker, porcelain), onto indoor and outdoor ground works. Universal Tile Adhesive can be also used for applying natural stone tiles (with the exception of marble). It is intended for use on balconies and terraces, for humid rooms (bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms), or on cement and anhydrite screed with under-floor heating. Suitable for applying reinforcing layer panels in thermal insulation systems.
Directions for use:
All substrates must be load-bearing, tight, stable, even and clean. If the substrate is not level, then it must be leveled out using the EWI-235 Levelling Mortar.
Pour the dry mix gradually into a container at a ratio of 7 litres of water per 25kg bag. Mix manually or using a low-speed mixer to produce a uniform, smooth texture. Leave the mixture for five minutes and then re-mix again. The product should be thick enough to not slide from a trowel when set at an angle. Do not mix the hardened product with water or fresh material.
Apply in a thin layer using a notched trowel at a maximum thickness of 5mm. Once mixed, the Universal Tile Adhesive has a shelf life of approximately 2 hours before it is unusable. Apply the Universal Tile Adhesive to the substrate at a maximum thickness of 5mm, then apply the tile to the adhesive.
Once the tiles have been applied to the substrate, the application correction time is around 20 minutes before they can no longer be moved/adjusted. Do not tread on the tiles until 24 hours after application to prevent damage and to allow them to properly set.
