Eagle Fix181 High Performance Rapid Set Thin-set Mortar Français
Description
EAGLE FIX-181 is an high quality rapid-set polymer modified universal thin-set mortar, that only needs water to install all types of natural stones and tiles on more demanding jobs. This thin-set is specially formulated to install tiles, vitrified or not, impervious like porcelain, either inside or outside, on horizontal or vertical surfaces. Joints can be done as quickly as 2 to 3 hours. Offering an excellent adhesion over conventional substrates for residential and commercial uses, EAGLE FIX181 gives a very good adhesion over surfaces like asbestos or composite vinyl tiles, existing ceramic tiles, cement-based terrazzo and cut-back residues. Take note that rigorous attention must be taken to execute surface preparation conform to trade practices and Eagle Black’s surface preparation guidelines.
Surface Preparation
All surfaces shall be structurally sound, clean and free from traces of dust, oil, grease, paint, curing agent, coatings and loose particles or from any acids, alkalis or any other material that can reduce adhesion. The only recommended wood substrate for residential floors is an exterior grade plywood installed in an interior dry area. All concrete substrates shall be completely cured and at least 28 days old, free from hydrostatic conditions and/or extreme humidity problems. They must be roughened to completely remove all traces of paint, coating, loosely bonded toppings. Ambient surface and product temperature must be superior than 10ºC (50ºF)and lower than 35ºC (95ºF) during the installation and for the first 24 hours.
Application
Spread and scratch mortar on surface to be covered with flat edge of trowel. Quickly add mortar and use notched side of the trowel, spread mortar uniformly, taking care to trace ridge lines in the same straight line direction. Prepare only the quantity that can be install within 15 minutes. If ridges have slightly dried and there is skin formation at the surface, there will be no adherence, mortar will have to be removed and a fresh coat applied. Press tiles firmly with a back and forth motion across ridges to obtain full mortar transfer at the back of tiles. Tiles must be embedded at 1/3 of their thickness in mortar. Never wet tiles prior to their application, if so, it must be advised by tile manufacturer.
Mixing
In a clean container, pour exactly 240 ml of fresh clean water per kg of powder, add gradually Eagle Fix-181 powder while mixing with a low-speed drill and mixer. Blend for about 1 minute scraping recipient walls and paddle to obtain a homogeneous trowelable consistency. Apply immediately. Occasionally remix while using it, with no water addition.
