Mapei launches Keraquick XL Fibrelite adhesive for ceramic

Keraquick XL Fibrelite is the latest lightweight flooring adhesive from Mapei. Fibre reinforced, Keraquick XL Fibrelite has the properties to fix sizes of large format tiles up to 1500mm x 1500mm in both residential and commercial installations.

With a high yield, the deformable cement-based adhesive is suitable for installing porcelain, ceramic and non-moisture sensitive natural stone materials to floors, including those with electrical underfloor heating systems. When hardened the adhesive is frost and water resistant which means it is suitable for both interior and exterior applications.

Jason Brunt, Ceramic Product Manager at Mapei UK commented:

“Mapei have developed Keraquick XL Fibrelite to help the tile installer achieve 100 per cent contact with the popular larger format floor tiles we see today, with less effort. Mapei’s new adhesive mixes to the ideal semi pourable consistency contacting the tile fully to the substrate with ease.”

Keraquick XL Fibrelite is a powder adhesive manufactured at Mapei’s UK factory in the West Midlands. Composed of a mixture of special cements, selectively graded aggregates, synthetic resins, fibres and setting accelerators, Keraquick XL Fibrelite develops a high bond strength after only 90 minutes, allowing for installations to be completed very quickly with general foot traffic after 12 hours.
