Tilemaster Adhesives offers a full range of professional adhesives

TILEMASTER Adhesives offers a full range of professional adhesives for tiling with ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles, and Tilemaster Eco-3000, a universal high-temperature flooring adhesive for installing LVT, PVC, vinyl and rubber flooring, and carpet onto a wide variety of substrates.

Says the company: ‘Eco-3000 has excellent adhesion properties with a high bond strength and is rated EMICODE EC1 Plus. Flooring can be installed after as little as 10 minutes, when the adhesive is semi- tacked off and has reached its ‘anti-slide’ state. Full tacking off takes 40 minutes and the floor is ready for light foot traffic after 12 hours.’

The tiling range reportedly includes a large variety of adhesives suitable for all substrates, tiling materials and site conditions. The company also offers a selection of rapid-setting products, but here we take a closer look at adhesives for sites where speed isn’t the overriding priority.

Where a flexible adhesive is required, Tilemaster Adhesives has a choice of standard and semi-rapid setting products in the Setaflex range, a polymer modified, flexible cement-based wall and floor tile adhesive.

Continues the company: ‘Both Setaflex Standard Set and Semi-Rapid Setaflex have been developed to give an extended pot-life, making them suitable for working with larger, difficult to manoeuvre tiles. They can be used internally and externally on almost all substrates, including timber, and are excellent for use in areas exposed to prolonged wet conditions.

‘Tilemaster Standard Setaflex has a pot-life of between 3-4 hours and can be grouted after 24 hours. The Semi-Rapid version offers a great compromise between extended workability, with a pot-life of between 90-120 minutes, and a fast-setting time, as it will accept light foot traffic and grouting after six hours.’

Where no flexibility from the product is required, Tilemaster Standard Set Extrabond has been specially formulated with increased adhesion and non-slip properties. It reportedly has the same 3-4 hour pot-life as Standard Setaflex and is suitable for fixing a wide variety of tiles to solid substrates.

After fixing, tiles should be grouted with Tilemaster Grout 3000, a ‘flexible, fast-setting wall and floor grout’ which can be used for joints between 1mm and 20mm.
