INTRODUCTION

UTC KANSAL Tiles is a multi-utility premix thin-bed self-curing solution that can be used for fixing and jointing tiles, marbles, stones and other materials. The material composition results in high strength and durability, giving desired adhesive which also prevents shrinkage cracks and slippage of material.

Particular UTC Tile Adhesives Conventional Cement Slurry
Quality Standard Conforms to Indian Standard IS-15477 Does not conforms to any specified Indian standard
Testing Well tested product with defined parameters No such testing done
Shrinkage No shrinkage observed May shrink when used
Packaging Ready to use / Premix bag Need to mix materials at site for preparation
Consistency Consistent quality as gradation and machined proportions are mixed and packed Quality not as consistent as mix is done at site through labour and gradation of material is not optimised

VARIANTS

Ascolite FixoBond +

A grey cement-based tile adhesive suitable for application on concrete/cement-plastered or tile (for tile-on-tile) substrates on interior and exterior wall and floor surfaces for fixing vitrified tiles, marble, granite and mosaic of small to medium profile.

Ascolite FixoBond

A grey cement-based tile and stone adhesive suitable for application on concrete/cement-plastered substrates on interior and exterior wall and floor surfaces for fixing ceramic tiles (non-vitrified), marble and granite of small to medium profile.

Ascolite FixoBond Prime

A white cement-based tile adhesive suitable for application on concrete/cement-plastered or tile (for tile-on-tile) substrates on interior and exterior wall and floor surfaces for fixing vitrified tiles, marble, granite and mosaic of up to large profile.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Availability :

UTC premixed Tile Adhesive is available round the year, making it easier for the material planning team and facilitating on time completion of work at site.

Easy Application :

The product is a premix packed solution containing cement, sand and special additives which only require the addition of water before use, making the application process simpler and easier.

Time Saving :

The concept of premix cuts out the tedious and inaccurate process of material mixing and preparation, which only leaves water mixing and application as a process to be done at site. This reduces the time required to perform at site and also the labor requirement.

High Strength :

High compressive and tensile strength increases masonry strength and load-bearing capacity.

Longer Pot Life :

Since the premix contains special additives which also contain water retention properties, the pot life of the mix is longer.

Excellent Adhesion :

Due to the special additives and sand gradation, the product texture and quality ensures excellent adhesion and makes it slip resistant, giving it an upper edge.

Minimum Shrinkage Cracks :

Technical properties and the design mix enhance the product performance leading to minimum shrinkage cracks solving a major problem in comparison to the conventional method.

Specification :

UTC Tile Adhesive is a standardized product which goes through a standardized production process following IS 15477 (specification for tile adhesive for ceramic and mosaic tiles) ensuring consistency and better performance.

Availability :

Unlike the uncertain availability of raw river sand, premix bags are available round the year.
