Elotex® FX5600

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by AkzoNobel

Elotex® FX5600 by Akzonobel is a high quality redispersible binder based on a copolymer of vinyl acetate, vinyl versatate, ethylene and butyl acrylate and polyvinyl alcohol as a protective colloid. Contains mineral anti-block agents. Offers very good rheology, workability, long open time, water resistance, improved water retention capability, very rapid wetting and high shear stability. Provides very good adhesive bond strength (adhesion) on different substrates. Exhibits increased cohesive force (cohesion), improved freeze-thaw cycling resistance and high saponification resistance. Does not affect the formulation's setting properties. Its neutral rheology enables product developers to freely modify selected properties. Primarily suitable for formulating high-quality, 1-component durable tile adhesives for applications that place high demands on flexibility and wet strength, such as facade systems, terraces, balconies and swimming pools. Tile adhesives formulated with ELOTEX® FX5600 are suitable for both floor and wall applications. They meet the increased demands of EN12002 and EN12004. For highly water resistant and flexible tile adhesives we recommend using up to 6% polymer. For highly water resistant (EN12004 C2) and highly deformable tile adhesives (S2) we recommend using approximately 10% Polymer. Sufficient wet strength should still be achieved with polymer quantities more than 10%.
