Eagle Flex XL High performance Thin-Set Mortar for large tiles Français
Description
EAGLE FLEX XL is a quality polymer modified thin-set mortar, only needs water for installation, of large size natural stones and large size ceramic tiles. This versatile thin-set mortar is formulated for inside or outside installation of tiles on horizontal or vertical surfaces. EAGLE FLEX XL gives good adhesion on demanding surface like : woob, concrete and gypsum panels. Rigorous attention must be taken for surface preparation conform to Eagle Black's surface preparation guidelines.
Surface Preparation
All surfaces to be covered shall be structurally sound, clean and free from traces of dust, oil, grease, wax, paint, curing agents, coatings and loose particles. They must also be exempt from any trace or presence of acids, concentrated alkalis, chemical cleaning agent or any other material that can reduce adhesion. Substrates like particleboard, chipboard, Lauan, press wood or masonite are not appropriate for thin-set mortar products. The only recommended wood substrate for residential floors is exterior grade plywood installed in an interior dry area. All concrete substrates shall be completely cured and at least 28 days old, free from hydrostatic conditions and/or extreme humidity problems. They must be roughened to completely remove all traces of paint, coating, loosely bonded toppings, loose particles and construction debris. Ambient, surface and product temperature must be superior to 10ºC (50ºF)and lower than 35ºC (95ºF) before the installation and for the first 24 hours.
Application
Spread and scratch mortar on surface to be covered with flat edge of trowel. Quickly add mortar and using notch side of the trowel, spread mortar uniformly, taking care to trace ridge lines in the same straight line direction. Spread enough mortar so that the surface can be covered in less than about 15 minutes. If ridges have slightly dried and there is skin formation at the surface, there will be no adherence, mortar will have to be removed and a fresh coat applied. Press tiles firmly with a back and forth motion across ridges to obtain full mortar transfer at the back of tiles. Tiles must be embedded at 1/3 of their thickness in mortar. Never wet tiles prior to their application, if so, it must be advised by tile manufacturer.
Mixing
In a clean container, pour exactly 260 ml of fresh clean water per kilogram of Eagle Flex Xl by adding gradually the powder while mixing with a low-speed drill and mixer. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes scraping recipient walls and paddle to obtain a homogeneous trowelable consistency. Let mortar sit for 10 minutes, than remix without adding any more water or powder. Apply immediately. Occasionally remix while using it, with no water addition. Clean working tools and hands with water while product is still fresh.
