Internal or external wall tiling/cladding work is exposed to extreme temperature variations which induces expansion and contraction of tiles/stones. In addition, external tiling or cladding is also affected by rains, wind and gravitational force. Air pockets and lack of curing reduces stability of tiling work. This is reflected in cracking, dislodging and falling of tiles.

Perlcon Vertigrip is an extra strength, sand free, self curing, special tiling mortar for vertical surfaces. Its even spreading ensures tiling work completely devoid of air pockets and cavities. Its special formulation decreases the maintenance costs.

Being lighter and self curing, Vertigrip is a boon for quick construction. No pre wetting  of substrate and tiles is required for application of Vertigrip. This saves water and prevents tile breakage. Vertigrip also allows a correction time of 10-12 minutes for re adjustment of tiles, increasing the accuracy and aesthetics of tiling work.

How to Apply

Clean the base plaster surface properly with wire brush. Fill a clean pot with potable water measuring 25% weight of Vertigrip (1 kg Vertigrip : 0.25 lit water).
Pour Vertigrip and mix with water. Mix and knead slowly to make a homogeneous paste. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. Mix again without adding more water.
Apply Vertigrip paste as plaster on clean, dry base surface from bottom to top direction evenly to form the bedding layer of required thickness.
Take a notched trowel and make grooves of required size on the newly plastered area and take out extra Vertigrip for reuse.
Fix the tiles in required position, ensure full fixity by pressing and twisting the tiles so that there is no air gap. Set the tiles with wooden hammer. Vertigrip allows a correction time of 10-12 minutes for re adjusting and re alignment.
Remove extra material with wet cloth. Tile fixing is now complete with Vertigrip.

Q. Can Vertigrip be used for all types of tiles and stones?

A. Almost all.

Q. Does the surface need to be wet prior to application?


Q. What is the joint thickness required for achieving a good workable & durable bond?

A. Depends upon tile size, thickness & weight. Normally, for 300 x 300 x 6 mm tiles, 3 mm bedding is recommended. Whereas for PKS/granite ladi it can be upto 8 to 10 mm thick.

Q. Can it be mixed manually at site?

A. Yes.

Q. How much water is required for mixing?

A. 25% by the weight of dry Vertigrip powder (+/- 5%.)

Q. Does Vertigrip allow possibility of correction after fixing?

A. Yes, you can adjust the tile position within 10-12 mins of fixing it.

Q. What coverage can be achieved with Vertigrip for 3 mm thick bedding?

A. In ideal conditions, approximately 3.75 sq. ft./kg, if the base surface is evenly leveled and work is carried out with proper tools and by a skilled worker.

Q. What is the initial setting time?

A. 40 - 45 mins.

Q. What is the final setting time?

A. 500 - 600 mins.

Q. What is the pot life?

A. 100 - 120 mins.
