Mapei launches new Adesilex P9 Express to its tiling adhesive range

Mapei UK has launched its new adhesive – Adesilex P9 Express to its existing Adesilex product range.

Adesilex P9 Express is a cement based, rapid-setting adhesive, ideal for the internal and external installation of porcelain, ceramic and non-moisture sensitive natural stone materials to floors. Whereas Mapei’s existing Adesilex P9 adhesive is best suited for the bonding of interior and exterior ceramic tiles and mosaics on walls.

The new adhesive can fix tiles to suitably prepared timber substrates such as 15mm overlaid plywood floors. Floors containing wet or electrical underfloor heating systems are also suitable substrates for the bonding of tiles using Adesilex P9 Express.

Adesilex P9 Express has a high performance ‘Fast Track’ formulation so the setting time is 4 hours which is ideal for areas subject to high foot-traffic. Each product is supplied in 20kg bags and is available in white and grey colours.

Alongside new Adesilex P9 Express, Mapei’s Adesilex family now consists of Adesilex P9, Adesilex P10 for mosaic fixing and Adesilex P4 for large format tiling on floors.
