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