Emulsion based tile adhesives are used for applying tiles by the ‘thin-bed’ method. After setting, they are highly flexible and can be used on various different substrates. The strength of emulsion based tile adhesives after immersion in water is normally lower compared to cementitious tile adhesives.
Ready-mixed joint fillers are emulsion based jointing compounds. As the name suggests they are ready to use and so do not require any water supply at the job site. Ready-mixed joint fillers are designed for embedding tape and are normally used indoors for jointing plasterboards or for repairs. They have a higher flexibility than gypsum based or cement based jointing compounds.
The modern method of laying tiles is the thin bed process, for which the substrate must be flat. The tile adhesive is applied with notched trowels.
For reasons of design and weather protection, decorative finish renders are mainly used as an exterior final coating. Decorative finish coatings contain white cement, hydrated lime and bright, weatherproof, granulated sand. The finish coatings are white but can also be coloured with inorganic pigments.
Aerated concrete block adhesives are used to build walls made from aerated concrete blocks, particularly polished lime sand bricks or clinkers. Constructing such walls creates only small joints so the progress of construction work is faster and more efficient with this modern adhesion technology. This modern product could be based on both gypsum plaster and cement.
Self-levelling floor compounds are used to smooth and level concrete and cement based screed surfaces. They can be used as an underlay for tiles and carpets.
Gypsum based trowelling compounds (Named as Gipton) are used to smooth plaster boards, concrete walls or ceilings. They are applied in thin layers and provide a very smooth and decorative surface, which can be then painted.
Gypsum based and gypsum-lime based machine spray plasters are mixed and applied in continuously working plastering machines. They are used for a highly efficient coating of walls and ceilings and applied in one layer (up to 10 mm thickness).
Gypsum based hand plasters are used for smaller areas as well as during renovation. They are stirred either by hand or with a machine and applied manually, usually with a trowel. Gypsum based hand or bonding plasters are less delayed than gypsum based machine plasters. They are usually made up of gypsum hemihydrate, special additives, perlit and calcite.
• A surface finishing plaster that is used to prepare inner surfaces like cement based plaster, gypsum plaster, gypsum wall blocks, plasterboards, exposed concrete and likewise surfaces for painting and coating
• The saten finishing plaster has the following characteristics: High level of adhesiveness with the help of chemical additives, long period of workability, the ability of not losing the water which is necessary for the initial state, very comfortable spread with a steel trowel to the application surface and the ability of finishing
• The surface should be totally cleaned from dust, dirt and oil
PREPARATION OF SATEN PLASTER MORTAR
• The container to be used in the preparation of the mortar should be cleaned from the remains of earlier plaster
• The mortar is prepared with the water/plaster ratio of 5.5-6 litres to 10 kg
• First of all water should be put into the container. After water, finishing plaster is added.
• Two minutes of waiting is required for the plaster to absorb water
• The mould is homogenized by blending it with a hand mixer or trowel
• In order to prevent polarization, water or plaster should not be added to the mix during or after blending
• The mortar should be used within 100 minutes after the preparation
For 1 mm application thickness, approximately 1 kg/m2 consumption.
30 kg polypropylene packs.
