Description

Fast Set Tile Adhesive is a grey, cement based thin bed adhesive, designed for fixing ceramic and stone tiles to a variety of substrates. The product is water and weather resistant and is suitable for internal and external applications. The product has a fast setting time of three hours, permitting early traffic times. The performance of Fast Set Tile Adhesive can be improved with the addition of Norcros Adiflex polymer admixture which allows a greater range of installation possibilities to difficult surfaces including under-floor heating, old tiles and certain timber substrates.
