keyboard_arrow_downSealers | Transparent Protective Coatings

Protecting cement finishes with a good quality Cemcrete sealer is crucial and not only makes the surface easier to clean, it offers other benefits as well, such as enriching the colour intensity of the overlay, blocking the penetration of stains, and improving water repellency and abrasion resistance.

keyboard_arrow_downCemBond | Polymer-Based Bonding Liquid

To dispense with hacking when plastering, tiling or painting onto smooth or friable surfaces. It can be used as an adhesive, a bonding liquid for friable surfaces, as a primer for PVA and acrylic paints, as a cement additive to improve adhesion, mixed with cement as a crack filler and mixed with propriety crack fillers to limit “ghosting” of filled spots when over coating with paint. It can be used in plaster mixes to improve the strength and integrity of the plaster and is invaluable for improving the adhesion of cement-based decorative coatings to difficult surfaces.

TAL FLEX is a thin-bed polymer-based paste adhesive for fixing lightweight tiles to flexible surfaces, such as partition walling. TAL FLEX has immediate tile-grip characteristics, thus minimising the possibility of tile slump. As TAL FLEX gives immediate grip, it is ideal for fixing lightweight tiles in upside-down tiling situations such as window and doorway arches. TAL FLEX should not be used in extreme wet conditions, or on floors.

TAL GOLDFLEX ULTRA is a high strength, ultra flexible rapid setting grey cement based adhesive that allows grouting after only 3 hours, and full traffic after only 6 hours. It is a one-component adhesive specially formulated to allow for elevated flexibility and water resistance while maintaining ultra-tensile strength, usually only achieved by the addition of latex admixtures. The incorporation of dry-form polymers replaces the need for a latex bonding additive. Only clean water needs to be added, reducing mixing errors on site. It is suitable for using in all interior and exterior wall and floor applications and finds special use in fixing of glass tiles.

Dow Corning® 890-SL Silicone Joint Sealant is a onepart, self-levelling silicone sealant for concrete and concrete to asphalt pavement joints. Cures to an ultra-low-modulus silicone rubber upon exposure to atmospheric moisture. The cured silicone rubber remains flexible from -20 to 300°F. Asphaltic paving materials have low tensile strengths. It is important to use an ultra-low modulus material when sealing these substrates to ensure minimal strain is placed on the asphaltic joint face
