Alphagrip (NSA)

Alphagrip (NSA)

Uneven spreading of tiling mortar leads to creation of air pockets/cavities which often causes the tiles and stones to crack, break or get uprooted. Lack of curing further adds to these problems. Inadequate workability/spreading and premature setting makes the floor tiling work tedious and faulty.

Perlcon Alphagrip is specialized sand free, light weight tile fixing mortar for horizontal surfaces. It’s even spreading properties ensures that no cavities are formed between the tiles and the substrate which makes way for perfect surface to surface bonding. This results in a strong grip as well as less breakage, dislodging of tiles and decreased maintenance requirement.

Being light weight and self curing, Alphagrip ensures quicker construction with lesser manpower. Alphagrip mortar also allows a correction time of 10-12 minutes, leading to more precision in setting of tiles and superior finish. No pre wetting of substrate and tiles is required for application of Alphagrip. This saves water and prevents tile breakage during the application process.

frequently asked questions

Does the surface need to be wetted prior to application?

Pre wetting is not required for sub base or for tiles.

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

Depends on tile size, thickness and weight. Normally, for 300 x 300 x 8 mm tiles, 3 mm bedding is recommended. Whereas for PKS/granite ladi it can be up to 8 to 10 mm thick.

Can it be mixed manually at site?

Yes. Please ensure mixing is carried out in two phases.

How much water is required for mixing?

25% by the weight of dry Alphagrip powder.

What coverage can be achieved with Alphagrip for a 3 mm thick bedding?

Under 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.

Does Alphagrip allow correction time after fixing?

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

What is the pot life?

100 – 120 mins.

What is the shelf life?

6 months. Under ideal storage conditions.
