Mapei Ultralite S2 Flex: Large-Format Tile Adhesive

Brought to you by Mapei

Out of Mapei’s research laboratories come Ultralite S2 Flex, a high-performance, highly deformable, lightweight, cementitious adhesive.

Ultralite S2 Flex is suited for installing ceramic, mosaic and stone tiles in balconies, terraces and flat roofs that are subject to direct sunlight and/or temperature swings. This adhesive is easy to apply by trowel with excellent back-buttering capacities. It is particularly suitable for laying large format tiles on facades and external insulation systems.

One of the essential requirements when installing large format tiles is that the adhesive must ensure a high level of wetting on the back of the tiles so that gaps are not created, otherwise the soundness and durability of the bond could be affected. 

Ultralite S2 Flex is particularly suited for tiles that are 3 to 5 millimetres thick in 3×1 square metres format. It is also suitable for tiles that are 5 to 12 millimetres thick measuring 1.6×3.2 square metres. These tiles possess technical and performance characteristics comparable to conventional tiles, in addition to having important advantages such as being lightweight and easier to handle, cut and drill. Ultralite S2 Flex also has low-dust features and is an extremely high-yield lightweight adhesive.
