Capa Flex

CapaFlex is a gel-like texture adhesive, which provides the maximum performance of workability and security in the tiling. Classified according to UNE EN 12004 standard as C2TE.
Its composition, based on modified resins, gives it an excellent workability. It also has rheological agents, which guarantee a very high thixotropy and an extended open time that gives a total grip.

Instructions for use

  1. Add water and mix by hand or mechanically until you obtain a smooth paste of a workable
    consistency (7,5l-8,5l).
  2. Leave the paste to stand for 5 minutes and mix again before applying.
  3. Spread the paste on the surface in sections of a surface area no larger than 2 m2, combining with suitable trowel. If double gluing is required, spread the mixture over the back of the tile as well.
  4. Put the ceramic tiles on top of the freshly-laid adhesive, pressing lightly to ensure that the whole tile surface comes into contact with the adhesive, filling any grooves.
  5. Leave a joint of a width of at least 1.5 mm between indoor tiles and at least 5 mm between
    outdoor tiles. Wait 24 hours before grouting wall tilles and 48 hours before grouting floor tiles.
  6. Respect all perimeter and structural joints. Place one partition joint every 50 m2 for indoor floor tiling, and one every 30 m2 for outdoor floor tiling.
