Flexi Flex-polymer modified adhesive for bonding all types of tiles-Technical Data Sheet.

Flexi Flex-polymer modified adhesive for bonding all types of tiles-Technical Data Sheet.

* Cost Effective
* Rubber Based
* High Bond Strength
* Flexural Strength

Flexi Flex is an off white adhesive composed of cement, fine graded sands and other special additives. This adhesive has been polymer modified for bonding all types of tiles to a variety of substrates subject to vibration and thermal movement and to achieve a high bond strength with non-porous tiles.

Flexi Flex is unsuitable for:

bonding moisture sensitive green marble;
bonding to MDF board or timber & wax impregnated wood;
bonding to substrates subject to constant water immersion such as swimming pools.


All substrates to be tiled must be flat and true, free from oil, dirt, grease or any other contaminants. Very porous substrates should be primed with Plastinex (1 part Plastinex mixed with 4 parts water). Incorporate expansion joints in accordance with AS 3958.1 2007.
Concrete: New concrete must be allowed to cure for 6 weeks and should have a wood float finish. Use Floor Prep to acid etch an adhesive key into concrete finished with a steel float. Cement Render: Render to be left with a wood float finish and allowed to cure for 7 days. Fibre Cement Sheets: Fibre cement sheets must be primed with Plastinex (1 part Plastinex mixed with 4 parts water) and all joints must be taped with PVC duct tape and fixed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Plasterboard: Plasterboard must be fixed as per manufacturer’s instructions. Jointing compound must be primed with Plastinex (1 part Plastinex mixed with 4 parts water).

Add Flexi Flex to clean water at a ratio of 25kg to 6 litres of water. Mix the adhesive to a smooth paste free from lumps by using a drill that has a speed lower than 300 rpm, or mix by hand. Slacken the adhesive and re-mix after 5 minutes. Flexi Flex has a pot life of approximately 3 hours at 23°C and 50% relative humidity.

Flexi Flex has an open time of approximately 30 minutes, which can be shortened to just a few minutes by the action of sun, wind, high temperatures or highly absorbent surfaces. Dampening or priming the substrate prior to tiling prolongs the open time of the adhesive. Tilers need to constantly check that the adhesive has not formed a surface skin and is still fresh to touch. Adhesive with a surface skin must be always removed and discarded.

Always install the tiles in accordance with AS 3958 1:1991 and ensure the backs of the tiles are free of dust. Spread Flexi Flex evenly across one square metre at a time with a 6mm notched trowel for walls and a 10mm notched trowel for floors. The choice of trowel should be governed by the depth of the knobs, grooves or ridges on the back of each tile and the evenness of the substrate. Lay the tiles with a fair pressure and at right angles to the adhesive notched pattern. The final bed of adhesive should be between 2mm and 4mm. Wall tiles should have a finished joint width of 2mm – 4mm and floor tiles should have a finished joint width of 3mm – 6mm. Tiles can be adjusted for approximately 10 minutes after laying.

25kgs of Flexi Flex will cover approximately 12 square metres with a 6mm notched trowel for walls and approximately 10 square metres with a 10mm notched trowel for floors.

Flexi Flex cures in approximately 24 hours at 23°C and 50% relative humidity. High density substrates or tiles and temperatures during installation below 10°C will significantly increase the cure time.

Remove excess Flexi Flex from the grout joints after 30 minutes and clean the tiles with a damp cloth or sponge. Tools and hands can be cleaned with water while the adhesive is still wet.

Depending on environmental conditions, commence grouting after approximately 12 hours. Use Regular or Superior Grout for grout joints between 3mm to 6mm. Morgan Slate & Quarry Grout should be used for joint sizes between 6mm to 20mm. Use Aquapoxy, a three component anti-acid epoxy grout, if the joints are required to have a good chemical resistance. Grout Add may also be mixed with Regular Grout to impart extra flexibility, reduce porosity and increase water resistance.

DO NOT use excessive amounts of water during mixing or initial cleaning as this will cause irregular colour finishes and also weaken the grout. DO NOT mix the grout with an electric drill above 300 RPM as this can entrap air into the mix causing grout to dry soft and powdery or with unsightly pin holes in the surface. All grouts should be Damp Cured for 48 hours. Refer to the Australian Standard AS 3958 Part 1 Section 5.7.3.

Twelve months if stored in a dry & elevated position in the original factory sealed packaging.

Flexi Flex is available in 25kg bags.

The wall & floor adhesive shall be Morgan Flexi Flex – a tile adhesive complying with all relevant Australian technical standards.

Flexi Flex is manufactured and distributed to a quality system based on ISO 9001:2000. Flexi Flex is guaranteed for 10 years when installed to the guidelines of AS 3958 Part 1 & 2 and in conjunction with written technical information supplied by Morgan Ceramic Tile Adhesives.
