Professional Latex Additive for Tile Mortar
Keraply is a professional-grade, acrylic latex admixture used to enhance the performance of MAPEI’s non-modified, dry-set mortars as well as Adesilex™ P10 glass tile mortar. As a highly recommended admixture, Keraply enhances bond strength, flexural strength, elongation and freeze/thaw durability.
Which tile mortars are recommended for use over Mapelastic® AquaDefense?
MAPEI mortars for use over Mapelastic AquaDefense are: Ultraflex® LFT™, Ultraflex LFT Rapid, Ultraflex LHT®, Keraflex™ Plus, Ultraflex 1, Keraflex SG, Ultraflex LHT SG mixed with Keraply®, Adesilex™ P10 Mosaic & Glass Tile Mortar mixed with Keraply, MAPEI Ultralite™ Mortar and Kerapoxy® 410.
Is a non-modified mortar the same as a dry-set mortar?
Yes, there are several terms used to describe a cement-based tile mortar that does not contain any polymer, such as "unmodified," "non-modified" and "dry-set" mortar. MAPEI's Keraflor® does not contain polymer and is considered non-modified. If you add a liquid latex additive, such as MAPEI's Keraply®, to a non-modified mortar, it becomes modified.
Can Premium Mortar be used outside?
MAPEI's Premium Mortar for tile and stone should not be used for exterior installations. Polymer-modified, cement-based mortars that are generally recommended for installing tile outside include MAPEI's Ultraflex® LFT™ mortar, and MAPEI's Keraflor® mortar mixed with MAPEI's Keraply® additive.
