Polymer modifi ed tile adhesive
Nitotile GPX is a high quality adhesive for the permanent fi xingof ceramic tiles. It can also be used for fi xing of insulating andacoustic boards based on expanded polystyrene etc. Typicaluses include : Wet areas - kitchens and bathrooms Tile claddings
Tropical grade to suit Indian working conditions Good open wet time Good slip resistance High adhesion strength Water proof Good slip resistance Can be used in totally submerged conditionsStandards complianceInstructions for use
Surface preparationAll surfaces must be sound and thoroughly clean before NitotileGPX is applied. All traces of grease or oil must be removedwith a chemical degreaser. All loose particles of mortar, oldwallpaper, paint etc. must be physically removed.Surfaces
Nitotile GPX can be applied directly on concrete, cementscreeds, and cement or lime mortar. Special attention mustbe given to new construction prior to commencing tiling. Tilesshould not be placed on concrete or brickwork until all shrinkage movement has taken place.To use Nitotile GPX on gypsum or gypsum board substrates,diluted Nitobond AR (1 : 3 with water) should be applied to thesurface of the gypsum or gypsum board prior to applicationof Nitotile GPX.
Nitotile GPX should be mixed with clear potable water in theratio 4:1 by weight (4 part powder : 1 part water). A slow speed drill fi tted with a mixing paddle is recommended for mixing.Add
powder to water and mix until a uniform, lump-free consistencyis achieved. The total quantitiy of water may be slightly adjusted to achieve the required consistency.
Nitotile GPX should be spread on the substrate to a uniformthickness of 2-3mm, and then combed horizontally with a serrated trowel.Place tiles fi rmly into adhesive bed, ensuring good contact witha twisting motion. Only apply to areas which can be tiled in theadhesive’s open wet time (up to 1m2 at a time).
It is recommended that when fi xing ceramic tiles, a minimumspacing of 2mm be left around each tile
