Advantage of Calcibond Advance over other flexible adhesive

  • Best for high rise facade, external areas & for public infrastructure.
  • Guaranteed fixing of all kinds of tiles & stone slab including thin tiles slab, mosaic, etc. on the façade.
  • High flexibility to accommodate surface movement including high external temperature.
  • Very high polymer modified, which makes adhesive highly deformable and it exceeds EN C2 TE S1 standard.
  • Fully thixotropic (Slip < 0.5mm.) for wall application and for the big format of natural stone.
  • Long-life assurance of performance.
  • Suitable to use on all cement-based surfaces including all kind of cement-based plaster, concrete, cement board of stable nature interior.
  • The extreme white colour of adhesive for white stone & other transparent material. • No water curing required.
  • Very high coverages with the best performance even at 2mm. the thickness of use. Minimum 2 mm. till 15 mm. use.
  • Best value using Calcibond Advance as an adhesive of superior class with no match.
  • No need to mix any extra cement or sand. Ready to use.
  • Very low VOC and suitable for green building

    Suitable Areas
  • Internal & external wall & floor including high rise facade.
  • Residential & commercial buildings.
  • Public infrastructure projects including swimming pools and water tanks.
  • Industrial facilities 
Suitable surfaces:
  • Fully dry and sound new or old traditional plaster.
  • New or old absorbent IPS or PCC floors which are sound and stable.
  • Screed made with Zeorich Base, Zeorich Base Rapid, or similar kind.
  • Fully cure stable concrete of all types including machine cut concrete block and fly ash brick.
  • Existing tiles or stone surfaces.
  • Gypsum based plaster, screed or AAC block, Panel (Autoclaved Aerated concrete). Apply primer before use.
Suitable covering material:
  • Large-format tiles of all types including vitrified low thickness slab of 3mm. or more.
  • All types & sizes of ceramic & vitrified tiles.
  • All types & sizes of ceramic mosaic, & glass mosaic.
  • All kind of stable marble & granite including recomposed stone, which is not sensitive to moisture.
Surface Preparation:
  • Ensure that surface is sound, clean and free from all foreign material such as oil, grease, dust etc.
  • If the surface is uneven of more than 15 mm. than first do the levelling by using correct levelling material in order to avoid using the excess thickness of adhesive or apply a first thin coat of the same adhesive to level the surface and wait for 24 hours.
  • Onto dry clean surface, splash enough water and let it surface dry to improve the workability of adhesive.
  • If the surface area is larger, provide movement joint every 3 meters.
  • In case working on external façade, avoid direct sun exposure to the surface and to finishing material. Let cool the surface before starting the application. A hot surface may compromise the final performance.
  • Follow the concrete expansion joint and connection joint as per standard.
Mixing:
  • Mix Calcibond Advance 20 kg. grey with approx. 6 lt. and white with 6.2 lt. of clean water. Use slow speed electric stirrer for mixing to have desirable results. Manual mixing can compromise the performance of adhesive.
  • Adjust the water quantity as per the ambient temperature and dryness of the surface. The final mix must be workable paste
How to apply:
  • Spread the adhesive in desire thickness from 2 to 15 mm. onto the base surface using Wallnut notch trowel.
  • Once adhesive is applied, fix the tiles or stone onto adhesive before skin formation and press firmly. In case tiles or stone are of big size, also apply the adhesive layer at the back of the tiles.
  • Leave the space between tiles or stone to have proper grouting and to accommodate surface movement.
  • Leave the tiles or stone for 24 hours to bond well and then follow the grouting process
