Technical Information of Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
ASTM C881 method was used in testing this product.
|Physical consistency in vertical surfaces||77°F (25°C)||0.1-0.3 mm|
|Gel time of 100g of adhesive||77°F (25°C)||20 minutes|
|Minimum time needed for initial cure||77°F (25°C)||10-12 hours|
|Full cure time||77°F (25°C)||4 days|
Appearance of Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
As you can see in the picture opposite, Megatite S epoxy adhesive has two components.
The first component is resin and the second component is hardener. In the table below you can see its appearance information
|Appearance||Thixotropic paste||Thixotropic paste|
|Full Cure Time||Initial Cure Time||Gel Time||Temperature|
|۸ days||۴۸ hours||200 minutes||50°F (10°C)|
|۶ days||۲۴ hours||100 minutes||59°F (15°C)|
|۴ days||10-12 hours||50 minutes||77°F (25°C)|
|۲ days||6 hours||20 minutes||104°F (40°C)|
Fully Cured Adhesive Properties
|Maximum operation temperature||158°F (70°C)|
|Linear expansion coefficient||60*10-6mm/mm/°C|
Curing condition: 7 days in room temperature
No staining will occur on bright or white marble and ceramic stones if Megatite S adhesive parts were mixed appropriately.
Processing of Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
|Mix ratio||Equal resin: hardener|
|mixing||Until a homogenous white or beige mixture is obtained|
|POT life in 77°F (25°C)||45 minutes|
|Minimum working temperature||50°F (10°C)|
|Initial cure in 77°F (25°C)||12 hours|
|Full cure time||4 days in 77°F (25°C)|
Minimum Time Needed for Initial Curing of Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
|Temperature (°C)||Time (hour)|
Minimum Time to Obtain Optimal Properties of Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
|Temperature (°C)||Time (day)|
Resin and hardener must be kept in 77°F (25°C) for 24 hours before application. All surfaces must be clear of any grease, dust, hardeners, and other contaminants and should also be clean and dry before applying epoxy adhesives. The surface of any product to be adhered must be prepared to access the pure hard surface underneath which is to be covered with the adhesive completely. The surface must first be sanded with an abrasive roller with a diamond blade, the resulting dust should be removed with a fiber brush. After that, the remaining dust can be removed from the surface with a damp sponge to ensure complete contact. Finally, dry the surface completely with a piece of cloth, then start using the adhesive.
Mixing Megatite S Epoxy Adhesive
Use the spatula to mix thoroughly by 1:1 ratio (1 parts resin, 1 part hardener). Mix for minimum 2 minutes until a homogeneous mix is obtained.
The strength and durability of a bonded joint are dependent on proper treatment of the surfaces to be bonded. At the very least, joint surfaces should be cleaned with a good degreasing agent such as acetone, to remove all traces of oil, grease and dirt.
In concrete surfaces must be completely solid with no loose pieces. Iron surfaces must be cleaned of rust.
|Tile size||Adhesive spot diameter|
|600*600 mm||100 mm|
|900*900 mm||150 mm
In addition, the amount of Megatite S adhesive used depends on the weight of the stone or tile to be attached to the wall. The following table is set to cover 10% of the surface of each tile with adhesive:
|The amount of inclination of the wall||Thickness of adhesive layer||Coverage with 10kg of adhesive|
|Completely vertical wall||3mm thickness||16-17 m2|
|6mm inclined wall||6mm thickness||8-9 m2|
|12mm inclined wall||12mm thickness||4-4.4 m2|
After the tile was set in place, necessary settings for regulation and leveling of the adhesive can be performed.
For larger stones and tiles, place spots with approximately 60g in 30cm distances from one another (horizontally and vertically) as shown in the following pattern.
After applying adhesive, tools and surfaces can be cleaned with warm water. Adding soap would easy the process. Megatite S can be cleaned with thinners before it is fully cured.
Each product comes with two parts (resin and hardener), two spatulas and elastic gloves in the following packages:
Storage and Shelf Life
Maximum storage life for sealed products is 24 months if stored at 32-95 °F (0-35°C) with no change in adhesion nor appearance
- Keep out of reach of children
- Megatite adhesives are non-toxic and have low odor
- In cold temperatures, avoid crossing over the work site until the adhesive is completely hardened
- Resin is harmful to eyes and skin. Prolonged contact with it must be avoided. In case of contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Use suitable gloves when applying.
