INSTALLATION SYSTEMS AND ADHESIVE MATERIALS

To determine the correct setting system, one must take into account the type and size of the tile, whether it is for interior or exterior applications, and the previously mentioned support surface considerations.

Installation utilizing a thin adhesive layer:

This is the most current installation system, adapted to modern ceramic materials and the wide variety of possible support surfaces. A preliminary layer is usually applied to plumb and level the support surface, whether it may be a coating on the walls, or a mortar base on the floors.

This system is adequate for all types of tiles, especially low-porosity tiles, and is furthermore compatible with all types of support surfaces. There are adhesive products adapted to each type of setting system, and the workability time is high.

ADHESIVE MATERIALS:

For optimum results, it is vital to select an adhesive which is appropriate (these are known as tile setting adhesives). There is a wide range of such products in the marketplace, ranging from cement mortar to resinous adhesives of many different compositions. It is advisable to consult experts in order to advise us as to which is the ideal adhesive for each AZTECA tile supplied.

 

TYPE NAME DESCRIPTION
C1 NORMAL ADHESIVE Incorporates organic components (resins), which improve its elasticity and water retention properties.
C2 IMPROVED ADHESIVE Mortars with a high content of polymeric latex, possessing great adherence and elasticity. Available in one or two components, being mixed with water or directly with the latex.
D DISPERSION ADHESIVES Made of water-based polymeric powder, sand and organic additive. Pre-mixed and ready-to-use.
R REACTION RESIN ADHESIVES Made of reaction resins (epoxy or polyurethane), a hardening agent, and mineral charges (silica sand). Generally it appears in two components, hardening the mixture of both via chemical reaction.
