Eagle Flex All purpose Thin-Set Mortar Français
Description
EAGLE FLEX is a quality polymer modified thin-set mortar, that only needs water to install natural stones and ceramic tiles. This versatile thin-set mortar is formulated for inside installation of tiles, vitrified or not and also porcelain on horizontal or vertical surfaces. It has been formulated for residential or light commercial uses. EAGLE FLEX gives good adhesion on more demanding substrates. 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, grease, paint, coatings and loose particles, acids, alkalis or any other material that can reduce adhesion. The only recommended wood substrate for residential floors is 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 using notched side of the trowel, spread mortar uniformly, taking care to trace ridge lines in the same straight line direction. Prepare the quantity that can be spread in about 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 260 ml of fresh clean water per kilogram of Eagle Flex by adding gradually the powder while mixing with a low-speed drill and mixer. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes scraping recipient walls and paddle to obtain a homogeneous trowelable consistency. Let mortar sit for 10 minutes, than remix without adding any more water or powder. Apply immediately. Occasionally remix while using it, with no water addition.
