Prohesive Megalite is a premium highly flexible, light weight, polymer fortified cement based adhesive design for a variety of heavy duty tile and stone applications including pools and spas.
UsageProhesive Megalite Is suitable for fixing tile and stone by thin and medium bed applications up to 19mm. Is suitable for internal and external applications. Is suitable for use in pools, spas, and saunas. Is suitable for use over Sika approved acoustic underlays. Is suitable for use over approved Sika tileable waterproof membranes. Is suitable for use over Schonox AB waterproof membrane. Suitable Tile Types are; • Ceramic Tiles • Porcelain Tiles • Mosaic Tiles • Glass Tiles and Mosaics • Natural Stone (non moisture snesitive) • Terrazzo Tiles (non moisture sensitive) • Man made Stone (non moisture sensitive) Suitable substrates include; • Concrete (concrete above 35Mpa compressive strength requires mechanical preparation) • Compressed cement boards* • Ceramic Tile Underlay / Fibre cement boards* • Existing Tiles (used in conjunction with Eco Systems Prep n Prime) • Brick Masonry • Concrete Masonry • Sika approved waterproof membranes • Sika approved acoustic underlays. • Schonox AB Waterproof membrane *refer to board manufacturers instructions for further details and load limits.
Advantages• Single part mix only with water. • Excellent adhesion / high bond strength • Multi use applications • Suitable for early aged mortar Beds / Screeds • Excellent coverage • Light Weight, easy to apply • Highly flexible S2 performance • Suitable for heavy duty applications including vehicular traffic • Can be used in submerged applications • Non combustable • Low VOC

Pour cool fresh water into a clean mixing container before slowly adding the adhesive powder. Mix with a slow speed drill (≈500rpm) for approximately 2-3 minutes to acheive a smooth lump free homogenous lump free mixture. Allow the mixture to Stand for 5 minutes, then restire for an additional 2 minutes without adding any addtional water.
Restirring the mixture may be necessary during the potlife.
Tiles shall be fixed in accordance with AS3958.1-2007.
Ensure the backs of the tiles are clean and free from dust and contaminates.
Apply the adhesive to the substrate with the appropriate sized trowel to acheive coverage requirement on both substrate and the back of the tile. Tiles may require "back-buttering" to acheive maximum coverage requirements.
Apply the adhesive with the notched trowel in a single direction. While pressing the Tile into the wet adhesive, break the ridges with the tile to fully bed the tile into the adhesive.
It is advisable to periodically check the back of the tiles to ensure adequate adhesive coverage is achieved in accordance to the standard.
Only apply as much adhesive that can be covered by the tiles prior the the adhesive skinning. If skinning occurs prior to placement of tiles remove and replace.
Remove any excess adhesive from the face of the tiles with a damp sponge and ensure grout joints are clean and free from excess adhesive and uniform depth.
Movement, Expansion, and Control joints must be installed as per AS ISO 3958.1-2007.
For tile over tile applications use Eco Systems Prep n Prime. Ensure existing tiles are soundly fixed and free from defect. Gloss finished or polished tiles need mechanical preperation prior to priming with Eco Systems Prep n Prime.
