Adesivix 40

C2TE Tile Adhesive

High performance cement adhesive (C2) composed by selected granulomentry silicate sands, redisperdible synthetic polymers and reological addicitives which allows prolonged open time (E) and  no vertical slip (T), EN 12004 certified C2TE class. Features strong adhesion, elevated adjusting times and thyxotropy. Due to the elevated flexibility and excellent workability, the product can be applied both indoor and outdoor on plasters, cured screeds, vertical and horizontal surfaces, trafficated surfaces, surfaces subject to prolonged contact with water, such as pools or terraces.


Fields of application

For floor and wall application of:

  • Ceramic tiles (gres, klinker, single-firing, double-firing etc.)
  • Mosaic of any type
  • Stone material, even large formats and overlapped

On cement supports such as:

  • Traditional plasters
  • Cured cement screed
  • Heating Floors
  • Waterproofing coatings such as CemPlast or MonoPlast

On pre-existent ceramic or marble floors it is recommended to de-wax in advance. Gypsum or plasterboard surfaces must be treated in advance with IsoPlast 581. See technical sheet for application on Anhydrite screeds.

Support preparation

Surface must be plain, stable, solid, free from dust and dirt. Supports must be cured and dry, not subject to shrinking after the application of tiles. Recover excessive gaps with a smoother (RasaPro) or self-levelling plasters (Level floor). In the presence of rising damp treat in advance with proper primers (Primer Bv 2K).

On excessively hot surfaces due to sun exposure, it is recommended to wet the surfaces with water, avoiding superficial stagnations.

In case of overlapping on very smooth or glossy ceramic, it is recommended to rough the surface to ensure adhesion. On pre-existent floors de-wax first. Gypsum or plasterboard surfaces must be treated in advance with IsoPlast 581. See technical sheet for application on Anhydrite screeds.

Mixture preparation

Pour in a container about ¾ of the necessary water to mix a bag of Adesivix 40, add gradually the powder and mix with a low-rounds stirrer. Proceed by adding the remaining water until an even, clump-free mixture is achieved. Let rest for 5-10 minutes and mix briefly before usage.

Tiling application

Apply a thin glue coating with the smooth side of the spatula, pushing vigorously against the support and immediately apply the mixture with a saw-tooth spatula (using the correct size, depending from the size of the tile). During application make sure the adhesive did not form a superficial film. Do not wet the glue after application, as the water may form an anti-adhesive film. Accurately beat the tiles to allow perfect adhesion. With outdoor extruded materials or in overlapping with size exceeding 25X25 cm, it is recommended to apply a double application (both on support and tile).


It is recommended to mix with clean, non-brackish water. Do not add bonding agents, inerts or other materials. In the presence of high temperatures or dusty supports wet the surface in advance with water. Sun and wind exposure may cause the rapid formation of a superficial film. Described times shortens in hot environments and prolongs in cold environments. Apply between +5°C and +35°C. Do not apply on concrete surfaces subject to noticeable shrinking or shocks. Do not apply on heating floors or metallic surfaces.
