Tilemaster Trade FlexiRapid is a polymer modified, flexible, rapid setting cement based floor and wall tile adhesive with increased adhesion and reduced slip properties. Tilemaster Trade FlexiRapid has been specially formulated for fixing a large variety of tiles including ceramic, porcelain and natural stone to substrates subject to limited movement and/or vibration, such as overlaid timber substrates and underfloor heating systems and its rapid setting capability allows for light foot traffic and grouting after 3 hours. Tilemaster Trade FlexiRapid is ideal for use in areas subject to prolonged or permanent wet conditions, such as swimming pools. Trade FlexiRapid can be used internally and externally and it is unaffected by frost after setting.
Underfloor Heating Screed: New sand & cement screeds must be allowed to dry for a minimum of 4 weeks. After this drying out period, the underfloor heating system should be turned on at its lowest temperature setting and the screed should be heated slowly at a maximum rate of 5°C per day up to the maximum operating water temperature, as recommended by the heating manufacturer, and maintained at that level for a further 3 days before being allowed to cool to room temperature. Alternatively, in cold conditions reduce the temperature of the screed to below 15°C prior to tiling. To commission the underfloor heating properly the flow temperature should not be limited by room thermostats. The room thermostats should be disconnected and the temperatures controlled manually via the manifold mixing valve, or at the boiler. Ensure that the surface is clean, dry and free of any contaminants. Prime the surface with Tilemaster Primeplus, diluted 3 parts water to 1 part Tilemaster Primeplus, and allow to dry. If the substrate is overly porous then further coats of diluted Primeplus may be required. Once the floor tiling is installed, the heating system should not be run for at least ten days in order to allow the fixing materials to cure/dry thoroughly. When turning on the heating, start at the lowest temperature possible and then gradually increase the temperature of the system, on the thermostat, by no more than 1°C per day until the required temperature is achieved.
Electric Underfloor Heating: When tiling onto an electric underfloor system the cables should be encapsulated into a flexible Tilemaster levelling and smoothing compound. When the compound has dried prime with Tilemaster Primeplus, diluted 3 parts water to 1 part Tilemaster Primeplus, and allow to dry. Once the floor tiling is installed, the heating system should not be run for at least ten days in order to allow the fixing materials to cure/dry thoroughly. When turning on the heating, start at the lowest temperature possible and then gradually increase the temperature of the system, on the thermostat, by no more than 1°C per day until the required temperature is achieved.
