Tilemaster AnhyFix Tile Adhesive is a gypsum based, polymer modified, flexible, rapid setting floor and wall tile adhesive. Comes only in white, in 20kg bags.
Tilemaster AnhyFix has been specially formulated for fixing a large variety of tiles such as ceramic, porcelain and natural stone to anhydrite/calcium sulphate screeds and gypsum based substrates such as gypsum plaster and plasterboard.
Tilemaster AnhyFix is a flexible adhesive and is suitable for use over underfloor heating systems. Its rapid setting capability allows for light foot traffic and grouting after 3 hours.
Tilemaster AnhyFix Tile Adhesive can be applied to anhydrite/calcium sulphate screeds with 85% Relative Humidity (RH) or less.
Tilemaster AnhyFix can be applied directly to anhydrite/calcium sulphate screeds. Unlike cement based adhesives, Tilemaster AnhyFix Tile Adhesive is 100% compatible with anhydrite/calcium sulphate screeds.
Tilemaster AnhyFix Tile Adhesive is suitable for use in internal locations only where dry conditions exist. It is not suitable for use in wet areas such as showers, wet rooms and swimming pools.
Tilemaster AnhyFix cannot be used on cement based substrates such as sand/cement screed and concrete.
Anhydrite/Calcium Sulphate Screeds must be confirmed dry via consistent moisture readings across the area to be tiled.
Anhydrite/Calcium Sulphate Screeds must be below 85% Relative humidity before tiling can commence. As a guide for drying times of Anhydrite/Calcium Sulphate Screeds, allow 1 day per mm up to an overall depth of 40mm and allow 2 days per mm for anything above 40mm. They often dry with laitance (a shiny, hard crust) on the surface. The laitance must be removed before tiling commences by mechanically sanding and/or abrading the surface of the screed. Once the laitance has been removed, the screed should be vacuumed to remove all loose dust, dirt and contaminants.
Prime the surface of the screed prior to tiling with Tilemaster Prime Plus or Tilemaster Flexmaster diluted 3 parts water to 1 part primer. Only one coat of primer is required. Allow the primer to dry before tiling.
