Tile Adhesives & Tile Grouts

Polymer-modified tile adhesives allow large-format tiles to be applied bottom down by the thin-bed technique.

VINNAPAS® polymer binders enhance the performance of tile adhesives, allowing them to be customized to a variety of tiles and substrates and making it possible to use the thin-bed technique. The properties of tile grouts are also optimized by the addition of VINNAPAS® polymer binders.

1-component (1K) cementitious system

VINNAPAS® polymer binders improve the performance of cementitious tile adhesives and optimize their cost-performance ratio. The significant increase in adhesion, open time and flexibility makes it possible to lay nonporous or large format tiles even on difficult substrates, such as wood or other tiles. Special VINNAPAS® grades enhance additional features such as hydrophobicity or thixotropy.

Dry-Mix Mortars
For the formulation of dry-mix mortars, WACKER offers VINNAPAS® polymer powders.

1K Pasty Adhesives and 2K Adhesives
Ready-to-use, premixed 1K pasty adhesives and 2K cementitious tile adhesives can be made using VINNAPAS® polymer dispersions.
