ASA Extraflex – pre-mixed acrylic based, flexible ceramic tile adhesive- Technical Data Sheet 

Extraflex is a pre-mixed acrylic based, flexible ceramic tile adhesive suitable for most
interior wall and floor* applications. Extraflex is safe to use, non – toxic, easy to spread,
even on vertical surfaces, and because of its initial grab, tiles adhere immediately.
Extrafl ex has a long open time for tile adjustments which makes it convenient for the
tradesman or handyman. Extrafl ex is suitable for use in areas as specifi ed by the
Australian Standard AS3958.1-1991 clauses;;;;;;;;
Flexible • Concrete
Easy to use • Cement render
Easy to spread • Sand/cement screeds
Water clean up • Fibrous cement sheeting
Low odour • Plasterboard
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and be free from dust, grease, wax, oil, laitance, curing compounds, paint, friable
material and all other contaminants that are likely to prevent the adhesive bonding. Building boards must be fi xed
in accordance to manufacturer’s printed directions. Cement render must be allowed to cure for 7 days, concrete to
be left with a wood fl oat fi nish and allowed to cure for at least 28 days. Porous or dusty surfaces must be primed
with ASA Multiprime prior to tiling. Smooth steel trowel fi nished concrete must be mechanically abraided to
increase adhesion.
Movement joints should be incorporated in the tile layout in accordance with AS3958.1-1991 clauses to 6.
Apply the adhesive to the prepared substrate using the appropriate notched trowel for the size of the tile being laid.
Push tiles into the adhesive before it skins over. At least 80% of the adhesive must be in contact with substrate and
tile. Allow at least 24 hours before grouting.
Use the appropriate ASA grout, allowing joint widths of 1.5mm to 6mm for walls as per AS3958.1-1991 clause
Extrafl ex is suitable for use over concrete, sand/cement screeds and fi brous cement sheeting. Adhesive drying
time may be signifi cantly delayed, or a full cure may not be achievable under the following circumstances:
Dense or non-porous substrates
Dense or porcelain tile
Colder climates
Extrafl ex can be removed from the surface of the tiles using a damp cloth while the adhesive is still wet. Tools and
equipment can be cleaned with warm water and detergent prior to the adhesive drying.
20 litre,10 litre and 4 litre plastic pails.
Using a 6mm x 6mm notched trowel, 1 litre will cover approximately 1m² on a true fl at surface.
