Saint-Gobain Weber believes in 'easy'
1 05 2015
Saint-Gobain Weber has introduced another innovative and easy-to-use tile fixing product called weberepox easy. This is a two-part epoxy resin adhesive and grout which can be used for interior and exterior tiling applications on floors and walls.
weberepox easy is specially formulated for fixing tiles where very high bond strength, robustness and flexibility are required and for grouting where chemical resistance and/or complete impermeability is necessary. This includes commercial locations such as hospitals, laboratories, laundries, dairies, abattoirs, distilleries and swimming pools where increased durability is required.
“This product contains a unique pigmentation system which effectively locks colour into the sand, reduces the risk of staining and makes the residue much easier to remove from the tiles,” says Peter Temprell, sales and marketing director, Saint-Gobain Weber. “When set and solidly bedded it forms a robust layer which is impermeable to liquids, resistant to chemicals, easy to sterilise, clean and maintain and is resilient to pressure washing.”
weberepox easy is quick and simple to prepare and involves adding all the hardener, which is supplied in a smaller and separate plastic pail inside the main bucket, to the resin material. The two components must be thoroughly mixed to achieve a uniform colour and consistency, preferably using a mechanical mixer at slow speed.
Working time is 60 – 90 minutes with a curing time of 24 hours for light pedestrian traffic; full load capacity after 72 hours; and achieves total chemical resistance in seven days. Manufactured under BSI Quality Assurance Scheme ISO 9001, weberepox easy offers long working time and is flexible which allows for slight movements due to changes in temperature and humidity.
weberepox easy is available in eight colours and can be used with ceramic, porcelain, mosaic and quarry tiles.
