Adhesive manufacturer launches rapid-setting solution

Mapei SA recently launched a rapid-setting ultra-white, high-performance cementitious adhesive, Keraflex S1 Express Ultra-White. It is a deformable S1 cementitious adhesive for use in ceramic, porcelain and especially natural and engineered stone tiling applications.


The adhesive is suitable for a wide range of applications wherever colour matching is important. The product is easy to apply by trowel, offers excellent wetting properties, and can be used as a screed for concrete, plywood overlay, existing unglazed ceramic floor tiles, cement-based renders, gypsum plaster, plasterboard and tile backer boards.

Ceramics product manager of Mapei SA, Zamaswazi Ntobela, comments: “Keraflex S1 Express Ultra-White allows a longer working period, where after it rapidly sets to provide a high bond strength four to six hours after mixing. This allows floors to be grouted and used more rapidly. The product is also suitable for interior and exterior applications in public areas such as commercial, residential and airports among others where surfaces need to be put back into service quickly. It is ideal for exterior applications such as swimming pools, balconies and terraces, and is suitable as an adhesive for underfloor and under-tile heating systems.”
