Magix: wetting out and weight benefits

Magix: wetting out and weight benefits

June 2019

Tilemaster’s Magix adhesive offers key benefits for all types of tile installation.  For fixers installing thin porcelain tiles, these benefits centre around wetting out properties and weight; and Magix helps overcome a number of specific challenges.

Magix has a revolutionary high-yield formulation, enabling a 10kg bag to cover the same area as a traditional 20kg bag of sand/cement-based tile adhesive.  While a standard 20kg bag of adhesive weighs around 25kg once mixed, Magix weighs in at just 14kg.  As well as being easier to lift and carry, there is also less weight of product on the back of the tile and less strain on the substrate.

Magix is also quicker and easier to mix, to trowel onto substrates and onto the back of tiles.  Its exceptional wetting out ability also makes it easier to fully bed in large format tiles, on both walls and floors, and to achieve full coverage and greater bond strengths between the tile and the substrate.

Other benefits include unrivalled slip-resistance properties.  Large format porcelain tiles can be applied to wall substrates without the need for battens; and Magix still provides plenty of adjustment time.  

Magix is offered in a rapid and standard-set formulation, and is S1-classified.  It is suitable for porcelain, ceramic, and natural stone installations onto solid substrates and substrates with limited movement and/or vibration, including underfloor heating systems.  It can be used inside and outdoors, and is suitable for areas subjected to prolonged wet conditions, from showers and wet rooms, to swimming pools.
