Advantage of Calcibond Secure over the normal adhesive

  • Guaranteed fixing for all types of ceramic & vitrified tiles.
  • Fixing of economic marble and glass mosaic.
  • Tiles of big size on the wall can be fixed with ease in areas such as bathrooms and lobbies.
  • Exceed strength of class C2 TE adhesive as per European norms.
  • Fully thixotropic for ease of application with big format tiles on floor and wall (slip <0.5 mm)
  • High polymer modified for improved working.
  • High speed of work with the ease of application.
  • No water curing required.
  • High coverage with minimum thickness of 2 mm. and maximum up to 15 mm.
  • No need to mix any extra cement or sand. Ready to use.
  • Very high mineral content & lite weight in nature.
  • Very low VOC and suitable for green building credit points

    Suitable Areas

  • Internal & external wall & floor.
  • Residential & commercial buildings.
  • Public infrastructure projects such as government buildings & utility public spaces.
  • Industrial facility.
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.
  • Completely cured stable concrete.
  • Machine cut concrete block and fly ash block.
  • Existing ceramic and cement mosaic surfaces.
  • Gypsum based plaster, screeds, and AAC block panel (Autoclaved aerated concrete). Apply primer before use.
Suitable covering material:
  • All types of ceramic & vitrified tiles.
  • Large-format tiles in interior walls & floor.
  • Ceramic and vitrified glass mosaic of daily use.
  • Stable Indian marble stone which is not sensitive to moisture.
Surface Preparation:
  • Ensure that the plaster / screed 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.
  • In case working in the external environment, avoid direct sun exposure to the surface and to finishing material. Let cool the surface before starting the application. A hot surface may compromise final performance.
  • If the surface area is larger, provide movement joint with every 3 meters.
  • Follow the concrete expansion joint and connection joint as per standard.
Mixing:
  • Mix Calcibond Secure 20 kg. grey product bag with approx. 5.6 lt. and white with 5.8 lt. of clean water. Use slow speed electric stirrer to have desirable results. Manual mixing can compromise the performance of adhesive.
  • Adjust the water quantity as per ambient temperature and dryness of surface. The final mix must be a workable paste.
How to apply:
  • Spread the adhesive in desire thickness from 2 to 15 mm. onto the cement surface using a proper 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 to have proper grouting and to accommodate surface movement.
  • Leave the tiles for 24 hours to bond well and then follow the grouting process.
