Selection of a suitable adhesive is key for achievement of an optimum result. The decision depends always on the quality of substrate, conditions of its use, but also on the type and size of facing. And of course – all adhesive for facing and tiling must meet parameters of European technical standards.
Minimum value of adhesion for cement adhesives according to EN STN 12004 is 0.5 N/mm2. Such adhesives are marked as grade C1. Adhesives of the grade C2 have this minimum level set to as much as 1.0 N/mm2. Grade C1 adhesives can be used for facing and tiling of smaller dimensions and with higher absorbability. For larger facing with lower absorbability, such as for instance sandstone, use adhesives with higher strength.
The higher quality of adhesive, the higher safety of the system. Value S1 according to STN EN 12001 guarantees the binding mortar resistance against cross deformation of min. 2.5 mm. Adhesives Baumit Baumacol S1 are highly flexible, ideal for the most demanding applications.
Improved processing parameters – higher comfort at every application. Get savvy about the assortment and identifications of the Baumit Baumacol adhesives!
T = binding mortars with reduced slide
Suitable for facing of walls, larger and heavier facing
E = binding mortars with extended time
It is the time after application of adhesive on the substrate during which the facing can be bound without reducing adhesion. Suitable for instance for facing of larger areas.
F = quick-drying binding mortars
Adhesives with quick-drying cement. For those pressed by time.
