TILE ADHESIVES

PRODUCTS:

FURTHER INFORMATION

Our range consists of cement adhesives of various characteristics for ceramic, terracotta and porcelain tiles. All our adhesives are frost and water resistant. We follow the European Classification, explained below, to make it easier for you to choose the suitable adhesive.

  • Adhesion capacity
    • Class 1: Normal adhesives
    • Class 2: Improved adhesives
  • Optional classes:
    • Class F: Fast-setting adhesives;
    • Class T: Reduced slip adhesives;
    • Class E: Adhesives with extended open time;
    • Class S1: deformable adhesives (for cementitious adhesives only);
    • Class S2: highly deformable adhesives (for cementitious adhesives only)

At Arsanit UK we offer a range of cement based adhesives (C) based on Portland Cement as per below:

Please request Technical Data Sheets for more detailed products characteristics and instructions how to use them correctly.
