Powder with grey and white coloured cement, putty, synthetic resins and selected additives.
When mixed with water the result is a flexible adhesive that hardens by hydration and drying. It is waterproof and weatherproof within a few days. It adheres perfectly on any substrate, such as concrete, cement screeds, anhydrite screeds, plaster, plaster, masonry and similar substrates, creating a firm bond between the different building materials.
ARDEX X7WPLUS adheres to both dry and damp substrates but these must be firm, resilient, grippy and free of separating agents.
Porous and gypsum substrates must be dry and treated with ARDEX P51 primer diluted 1:3 with water.
Gypsum plaster and render must be applied in a single coat at least 10 mm thick and must not be felted or polished.
Non-porous substrates such as ceramics, metal, glass, varnish coatings, etc. must be primed with ARDEX P82 in interiors and in dry areas. For exterior applications over existing tiles, the tiles must be primed with ARDEX P4.
In areas with dampness (bathrooms, kitchens, shower trays, etc) or outdoors (terraces, balconies, etc), we recommend the use of ARDEX 8+9 waterproofing membrane.
Instructions for use:
Pour clean water into a mixing container and add the ARDEX X7WPLUS powder, stirring vigorously until a flexible, homogeneous, lump-free mortar is obtained. To improve flexibility and full contact with the workpiece, the mortar should be stirred again before application to the substrate.
Amount of water required for mixing:
ARDEX X7W PLUS: 9 1/2 l of water per 25 kg bag.
At a temperature of 20°C, the mortar is workable for approximately 5 hours.
Apply the mortar on the substrate and comb it with a notched trowel vertically. The choice of trowel depends on the surface of the substrate and the type and size of the workpiece. In the case of surfaces that have to support high loads, it is advisable to apply it using the double-gluing method in order to achieve the most complete wetting possible.
The working area should not be larger than that which allows the workpieces to be placed on a wet bed for 20 minutes.
Uneven and rough substrates can be levelled and smoothed with the same mortar. Laying can be carried out after the mastic layer has hardened.
When fixing the insulation boards, the mortar should be applied from behind in strips or in spots.
If the boards are not porous, they should first be trowelled.
If in doubt, carry out a test beforehand.
Work ARDEX X7W PLUS at temperatures above +5°C and below +30°C.
For interior installation of water-sensitive natural stone, especially for the installation of light and translucent marble, we recommend applying ARDEX S27W to avoid the appearance of stains on the piece.
ARDEX WA, both in adhesive and grout, is recommended when resistance to chemicals and aggressive cleaning is required, e.g.: swimming pools, spas, food industry, tanks, etc.
For laying large format pieces and natural stone on facades it is advisable to apply ARDEX X77, special flexible adhesive C2TES1.
Contains cement. Irritating to eyes and skin. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid any contact with eyes and skin. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Wear suitable protective gloves. In set state is physiologically and ecologically harmless.
