Kerakoll has just launched a new type of adhesive made from gel technology. The company says that using this technology has enabled them to dispense with all of the different formulations for different substrates and tile types that exist with standard C2 cement-based adhesives: with Biogel adhesives there are only 2 choices that have to be made – powder-form Biogel No Limits or two part Biogel Extreme. Both of these are suitable for internal and external use on any substrate, even deformable ones, and for use with ceramic, stone and porcelain as well as practically any other material.
Apart from the simplicity of choice, the advantages of the range are many: the adhesives stay the same consistency as when you first mixed them, even after a long period in the bucket. The mix doesn’t shrink, so you can make it the right thickness for the job and it’s softer and easier to work with. The consistency means that it wets the entire tile as well as the substrate, giving an excellent bond and superior performance. It is high-grab and no slip even on walls. And the inclusion of resins gives it a high shear strength which means it can be used on the most deformable substrates. The icing on the cake is that this new type of resin has a low environmental impact giving Biogel No Limits a GreenBuilding Rating of 5. BioGel No Limits is available in grey or White Shock: said to be a “white so pure it makes other brands’ white adhesives look grey beside it”.
Biogel No Limits and Biogel Extreme are available from Kerakoll UK.
