DAVCO has released Econofix is a high performance adhesive, one of the key products in the Davco range.
Formulation improvements mean Econofix now has greater adhesion, improved flexibility and can be mixed to a non-slump consistency. It cures at 5ºC as it does at 25ºC, taking about six to eight hours. Tiles can be grouted the same day.
When mixed to a thick consistency, Econofix takes on the properties of a mastic adhesive, allowing tilers to hang normal wall tiles without slump. It is white, allowing it to be used with white marble and translucent tiles without the risk of the adhesive colour showing through.
Because it is polymer modified, it is highly flexible, allowing it to be used over flexible building boards without the use of an additive. It can be used on both walls and floors in interior applications to fix tiles to concrete, cement render, blockwork, brickwork, plasterboard, fibre cement sheeting and most waterproofing membranes.
A 20kg bag will cover approximately 12m² using a 6mm x 6mm notched trowel.
