Mapei’s Kera family of advanced tiling adhesives grows

October 2017

Mapei’s family of ‘Kera’ products has been developed to cover all aspects of tile fixing, with the new Keraquick Ultrafast S1 providing an exceptional fast track addition.

Kerabond is one of the longest serving members of the ‘Kera’ family and is a good all-rounder.  This standard setting adhesive is available in white and grey and is used to install ceramic tiles to wall and floors.  With an extended open time and pot-life, the product is ideal for all levels of fixing ability.

Keraflex is an improved formulation of the Kerabond adhesive and, as such, is suitable for the installation of both ceramic and porcelain tiles to walls and floors.

Keraflex Maxi S1 has increased deformability compared to standard Keraflex, as it conforms to the required standards of S1.  The product can also be bedded out to 15mm in depth and is ideal for the installation of larger wall and floor ceramic and porcelain tiles.

Keraquick S1 has been specially  formulated for those people requiring fast track systems.  Keraquick S1 is an S1 adhesive and can be enhanced further again to become an S2 product by simply mixing with Mapei Latex Plus.  Keraquick S1 is Mapei’s number one selling S1 adhesive, with an average of 150,000 sq. metres of tile and stone being installed using this product in the UK and Ireland each month.

Keralastic is a two-part PU adhesive developed for use when awkward substrate materials, or tiles, feature in an installation.

The most recent addition to the Mapei Kera Family is Keraquick Ultrafast S1, available in a 10kg unit size which will fix up to 2 to 2.5 sq. metres of tiles.  Ideal for smaller bathroom floor installations, or when rapid repairs are needed, Keraquick Ultrafast S1 remains workable for 15 minutes but can be trafficked after only 60 minutes, with grouting able to take place after 90 minutes.  The product is deformable and perfect for those areas where a fast track S1 product is required.

Whether you need to undertake specific preparation work or require an ultra-fast setting product, the Mapei Kera family has an adhesive for any situation.
