Mapei Keraquick S1 Tile Adhesive is a rapid set, flexible S1 cementitious tile adhesive for use with ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, mosaics and natural stone tiles that are not moisture sensitive. Mapei Keraquick S1 Tile Adhesive is available in white or grey, in 20kg bags.
Mapei Keraquick S1 is a powder composed of a blend of special cements, selectively graded aggregates, synthetic resins and accelerators, which develop high bond strength 2-3 hours after mixing. These properties allow floors and walls tiled using Mapei Keraquick S1 Tile Adhesive to be grouted after only 2 hours. Floors can also be subjected to light foot traffic after 2 hours and full service conditions after 24 hours. Where floors are to be subjected to heavy duty use, such as cherry pickers, the floor tiling should have been allowed to cure for a minimum of 7 days.
Mixing Mapei Latex Plus with the adhesive improves the deformability to meet the requirements of class S2 (highly deformable) in accordance with EN 12004.
Mapei Keraquick S1 can be used internally and externally for bonding to cement-based and calcium sulphate based screeds, concrete, plywood overlay, existing unglazed ceramic floor tiles, cement-based renders, gypsum plaster, plasterboard, tile backer boards. It can also be used for the installation of glass tiles and mosaics. Mix with Latex Plus where the glass has a coating on the rear.
Mapei Keraquick S1 is also suitable for the installation of insulating materials such as expanded and extruded polystyrene panels, gypsum boards, glass and rockwool, Eraclit®, aerated concrete blocks, and sound deadening panels.
