SWIMMING POOLSDubounds's TURBO is a technical marvel of shock absorbent system (SAS) technology to produce a single part adhesive that has absolute insensitivity to the action of water, for it has binders and stable co-polymers with alkali hydrolysis. Turbo doesn't give up its bond even in the testing of high external pressure due to of water and also condition water seeps to the high adhesive layer thus it finds favor presence with laying professionals of swimming pools and various water bodies.
Green Building Rating
Areas of Application
Designed for interior & exterior floor and wall installation of all types of glass mosaic. Ideal for Swimming pools, tanks, flooring and walls, indoor/outdoor use, in domestic, industrial and commercial applications and for street furniture, In areas that are permanently damp and subject to thermal shock and freezing. Very good for swimming pools and various water bodies. It can be used to clad glass, tiles and natural stones / artificial stones.
Features & Benefits
Method of Application
High - absorpation substartes
On screeds and plasters which are highly absorbent and have dusty flaky surfaces it is advisable to apply one or more coats of HydroPrime a professional, concentrated water-base, surface insulation product, in accordance with the instructions, to reduce water absorption and toimprove spreadability of the adhesive
Prepare Turbo in a clean container, first of all pouring in a quantity of water equal to approximately . of that which will be required. Gradually add Turbo to the water in the container, mixing the paste from the bottom upwards with a low-rpm ( 400/min.) helicoidal agitator. Then add more water until the desired consistency is obtained. The mixture must be homogeneous and without any lumps. For best results, and to mix larger quantities of adhesive, a stirring device with vertical blades and slow rotation is ecommended. Specific polymers with high-dispersion properties ensure that Turbo is immediately ready for use. The amount of water to be added, indicated on the packaging, is an approximate value and will vary . It is possible to obtain mixtures with a more or less thixotropic consistency, depending on the type of application. Adding extra water does not improve the workability of the product, and may cause shrinkage in the plastic phase of drying and result in less effective final performancewith a reduction in compressive strength and adhesion to the substrate.
Partial replacement of mixing water with Tuffex AD professional elastomeric latex enhances the adhesive’s capacity for transversal deformation. The real necessity for deformability of the laying system must be verified, as use of an excessively deformable adhesive together with highly-rigid substrates and laying materials may cause breakage and early unexpected yielding of the covering materials when placed under heavy and concentrated strain or loads. To define the percentage of Tuffex AD to be added, on the basis of the various factors related to the system, consult the Dubond Products (India) Pvt Ltd’s official web site.
Provide desolidarisation joints and elastic fractionizing joints for areas of 20/25 m in indoor applications, 10/15 m in outdoor applications and for every 8 metres length in the case of long, narrow applications. Structural and string-course joints have to be marked on the external facade.
Precautions & Limitations
Do not use on gypsum-base plasters and anhydrite screeds without the use of HydroPrime a professional concentrated, water-base, surface insulation product; on plastic or resilient materials, metals and wood; on substrates subject to continuous moisture rising Do not use the adhesive to correct substrate irregularities greater than 15mm Lay and press tiles onto fresh adhesive, making sure it has not formed a surface film the temperature, ventilation and absorption of the substrate and covering materials may vary the adhesive workability and setting times Protect against direct rain and freezing for at least 24 hours Use a toothed spreader suitable for the format of the tiles Use the double spread technique for all outdoor laying CoverageThis shall depend on the nature and flatness of the surface and the method of application, but at 15 mm thickness it is approximately 2 80-90 SqFt/ M 1.5mm for 20kgs bag . For good coverage, it is vitally important that all surfaces should be clean, smooth, plumb, level and free from defects and undulations.
