Unis 2000 glue: characteristics and application
Technical adhesives are characterized by quality and reliability. But not every manufacturer offers products of excellent quality. Unis 2000 glue is not just a happy exception against the general background, but also a really good, excellently developed sample.
Unis 2000 glue forms a durable layer and is suitable for attaching a variety of types of ceramic tiles (floor and wall) in a dry and damp room. It has a white color. It can be used to decorate the facade of the building with tiles, external walls (except for the basement). The material allows you to put natural stone and porcelain stoneware with a water absorption level of 0.5%, while the size of a single block for walls is 0.3x0.3 m, and for a floor –0.6x0.6 m. Additionally, you can use glue as the base wall leveling up to 1.5 cm.
The main technical characteristics of the adhesive mixture are as follows:
- the possibility of using under the lining of the heated screed type "warm floor";
- simultaneous gluing and leveling drops;
- suitability for joining ceramic and porcelain tiles;
- excellent creep resistance;
- resistance to frost; the ability to walk 24 hours after gluing;
- holding strength of 1000 kPa.
The prepared Unis 2000 glue solution can be laid on a wall or floor at temperatures from +5 to +30 degrees. When calculating the need for the material, it is necessary to dilute 1000 g of the dry composition in 200–240 ml of water. The minimum thickness of the created layer is from 0.2 cm. In terms of 1 square meter. m glue consumption reaches from 1.35 to 1.45 kg, given the thickness of the layer of 1 mm. The prepared mixture must be used within 3 hours, otherwise its valuable qualities are lost. It is desirable to apply glue in small portions.
On 1 square. m can be laid up to 50 kg of tiles, and the resistance to cold (up to –20 degrees) is at least one hundred cycles of freezing and defrosting. The highest tolerated temperature is +50 degrees. Glue is packaged in bags with a capacity of 5, 23 and 25 kg. All information about the mixture is reflected on its packaging, which must be reviewed before use.
Nuances of use
Unis 2000 glue can be used for tiled work even in the bathroom, on the balcony and on the terrace. Well-balanced composition allows you to apply it in the nursery, in a medical and educational institution. The occurrence of negative (toxic) substances in the atmosphere when using such glue is completely excluded, since its composition is formed only of cements, mineral fillers and specially selected additives. When it is used for laying tiles on the walls, it is necessary to place ceramics from top to bottom.
When using 25 kg of the mixture will have to spend from 4.5 to 5.5 liters of water. Working as the most comfortable spatula with a size of 0.6x0.6 cm, it will be necessary to spend from 3.5 to 5 kg of glue per 1 m² of the surface to be trimmed. The largest bag lasts an average of 5 or 6 m².
It is possible to glue a tile or other material on:
Judging by the reviews, the adhesive mixture is extremely convenient due to its plasticity. Water does not act on the coating, because it always retains its strength. This branded packaging is bags of kraft paper with hardening. According to the instructions, the constant integrity of the container allows you to store the mixture for exactly one year from the date of production.Unis 2000 has a quality certificate according to the standards of the Russian Federation, therefore it is suitable for repair work on objects with high requirements to environmental and sanitary parameters.
How to apply?
For proper use of Unis 2000 glue It is necessary to adhere to the recommendations of experts:
- it is necessary to apply it on the surface of both tiles and walls, after which the surfaces covered with glue are carefully joined;
- if the substrate is well prepared, the glue will cope with the task most effectively;
- the base is freed from water, dust particles, smooth uneven relief with sandpaper.
- no coatings, decorative materials, oil and bitumen stains should remain, as this can all reduce the level of adhesion;
- per 1000 mm of base, the deviation from the ideal relief can be a maximum of 1 mm.
It is more convenient and safer to work with the composition, wearing gloves. Experts also recommend changing into clothes that will not be soiled to get dirty. If the glue comes into contact with the skin, especially into the eyes, it is necessary to immediately rinse with a large amount of water or under a stream for 10–15 minutes.If these measures do not help, do not remove the problem and negative feelings, you should immediately seek professional help.
Unis is a Russian manufacturer of dry building mixtures that have been in steady demand for more than two decades. The company's products are among the three most sought after products. On Unis 2000 glue, you can put tiles made of marble, limestone and granite, but not thicker than 1 cm. When working with such materials, you can use either jagged or ordinary spatulas or trowels. In the first case, the grooves of a given size are obtained, and in the second, the thickness of the coating to be created can be increased.
The maximum thickness of the adhesive layer is used in cases where you want to smooth out the most powerful height differences. If the base is so chaotic, sometimes it is more expedient to resort to leveling with plaster or screed to save time and increase the reliability of tile laying. Remember that the smallest layer of glue in a particular case is equal to or exceeds the thickness of the tiles.
When mixing dry material, it is advisable to use a mixer., ensuring the final disappearance of the smallest lumps.Strength, as with all compositions on the cement base, takes 28 days, and during the first 14 days it is undesirable to rub the seams. Over the warm floor glue can not be used. After reviewing the properties of the mixture, it is easy to understand that it satisfies even the most stringent technological requirements, subject to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
