ALCOLIN LATEX-KEY CEMENT ADDITIVE is a concentrated cement additive that has been specially formulated to replace all or part of the water addition component of cement based products e.g. cement plaster, concrete, screeds, cement based tile adhesives, grouts etc.
It not only greatly enhances the performance of cement based products, but can also be used as a primer to improve the surface properties of the substrate such as screeds, plasters, renders etc. prior to tiling, screening, repairing etc. Once cured the polymer is water and frost resistant.
Uses / Applications
Improves performance of cement-based products
Greatly enhances the water resistance of cement based products Imparts flexibility to cement based products
Mixes readily into cement-based products
It may be used as a primer to consolidate dusty, friable or crumbly cement surfaces
Greater resistance to water soluble chemicals
Improves substrate surfaces prior to bonding with tile adhesives or other coatings
Versatile: Can be used for a variety of applications
Greater frost resistance
Used as an additive to cement based products (e.g. ceramic tile adhesives, grouts, mortars, and screeds) where extra performance may be required such as improved adhesion, enhanced water resistance and increased flexural strength.
Pigmented products such as grouts may dry a shade darker than those with a straight water addition
Cannot be mixed with cretestone or gypsum base products
