Top Latex Eco

Application

For use as an additive in extra-fast and normal setting mineral and cement-based adhesives. Can be used on internal and external flooring and walls, in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and street furniture, in environments subject to heavy traffic, swimming pools, baths and fountains, for laying on deformable substrates, also in areas subject to thermal shock and freezing.

Description

An eco-friendly, water-based elastomeric latex for normal and rapid-setting mineral adhesives, suitable for use with EMICODE® Green Building. It is solvent-free and safeguards the health of both operators and the environment.

Top Latex Eco increases the longitudinal and transversal deformation of adhesives, guaranteeing unaltered workability and safe, easy and eco-friendly laying.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for internal and external use on walls and floors.
  • Increases substrate adhesion.
  • Does not alter interval before normal use.
  • Recommended as an additive for substrates and materials subject to extreme deformation.
  • Does not alter workability times of normal and extra-fast setting mineral adhesives.
  • EMICODE® Green Building rating: Eco 4.
  • Contributes to LEED points.
