LATAFIX 305 is cement based thin set adhesive which is mixed with water and used for tile installation in internal areas.
For 20 Kg bag of LATAFIX 305, one needs 5 to 6 Liters of water. Mix water depending upon the consistency of mix required and ambient environmental conditions.
For vitrified tiles or Glass mosaic tiles, one has to choose modified adhesives like LATICRETE® 252 or above. If you want to install vitrified tiles using LATAFIX 305, mix this powder with LATICRETE® 73 Latex admix instead of mixing with water.
The maximum size of ceramic tile is 300mm X 300mm for installation with LATAFIX 305 + water. If you are installing tiles larger than this size ask MYK LATICRETE team member for a suitable thin set adhesive
For external tile installations, the thermal stresses are critical and would need adhesive to become accommodative to the movements arising from these stresses. Hence it is recommended to use LATICRETE® 73, latex admix instead of water with LATAFIX 305, to install tiles on external surfaces.
