Flexible Tile Adhesive
ARDEX X 7 G Plus is a high yield, grey, cement-based floor and wall tile adhesive, specifically formulated to have a high yield per bag along with enhanced properties of adhesion and flexibility ideal for fixing fully vitrified or porcelain tiles (internal areas only) and other tiles with low porosity as well as glass and porcelain mosaics without the need of an admixture.
The BS EN 12004 C2 TE designation for ARDEX X 7 G Plus classifies the adhesive as an “improved cementitious adhesive with additional
characteristics, reduced slip and extended open time”. The additional characteristics for ARDEX X 7 G Plus determined in accordance with BS EN 12004 are a tensile adhesion strength of greater than 1 N/mm 2 as an initial adhesion value, greater than 1 N/mm 2 after water immersion, greater than 1 N/mm 2 after heat aging and greater than 1 N/mm 2 after freeze thaw cycling making this product suitable for internal and external situations, including swimming pools. The mixed mortar has a slump free consistency with high initial grab enabling heavy wall tiles to be fixed thus reducing or dispensing with the need for battens and spacers. ARDEX X 7 G Plus adheres strongly to most construction materials such as concrete, cement and sand renders and screeds, heated sub-floors, brickwork and blockwork, gypsum plaster, anhydrite screeds, plasterboard and existing ceramic tiled surfaces.
For fixing fully vitrified or porcelain tiles in external locations including facades, balconies, terraces and similar locations use ARDEX-FLEX 5000, 5001, 6001 or S 38 as appropriate. When fixing natural stones, please refer to the ARDEX Natural Stone Range.
