Ardex X7RW – Flexible Adhesive for Floor and Wall Tiling
Ardex X7RW – Flexible Adhesive for Floor and Wall Tiling. X7RW is a cement-based floor and wall tile adhesive which has rapid setting qualities, which will allow grouting to commence after just 2 hours, allowing projects to run efficiently, and to a high standard.
Ardex X7RW is specifically formulated to have enhanced properties of adhesion and flexibility, and is ideal for fixing fully vitrified or porcelain tiles and other tiles with low porosity, as well as glass and porcelain mosaics, terrazzo and brick slips. When mixed to a slump free consistency, Ardex X7RW has high initial grab – enabling heavy wall tiles to be fixed, thus reducing or dispensing with the need for battens and spacers. Ardex X7RW adheres strongly to most construction materials such as concrete, cement and sand renders and screeds, heated sub-floors, brickwork and blockwork, and primed gypsum plaster, anhydrite screeds and plasterboard.
The mixed mortar is applied to the prepared surface with a trowel and then combed through with a suitably sized notched trowel to give a straight ribbed adhesive bed; the size of the notched trowel chosen depends on the tile size, the surface being tiled, the profile on the back of the tile and the degree of coverage required. Tiles should then be fixed within the open time of the applied adhesive (below) and pressed into place with a twisting and sliding action to achieve the required contact.
For further information on application, and details on surface preparation, mixing, grouting and cleaning please refer to the technical datasheet.
