For waterproof bonding of the crack bridging membrane Schonox AB & Schonox ST system coponents in normal and highly loaded wet areas and swimming pools. Schonox iFix is a patented adhesive that is based on a self crosslinking, special acrylate-dispersion.
Usage• In highly loaded commercial commercial wet areas and kitchens. • On balconies and terraces prior to tiling. • In swimming pools, in combination with ceramic tile covering. • In residential wet areas & bathrooms • Schonox iFix adhesive is suitable on the following substrates; • Concrete (concrete above 35Mpa compressive strength requires mechanical preparation) • Masonry blockwork • Brickwork (fully grouted) • Existing tiles such as ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles (tiles require mechanical preparation prior to priming) • Cement Render • Cement Mortars Beds & Screeds including Eco Systems EcoScreed and EcoScreed Rapid concentrate • Pre-cast concrete (with mechanical preparation) • Fibre Cement Boards • Compressed Cement Boards • Gypsum Plaster Board • Light weight polystyrene boards coated with mortar • Cement Terazzo (with mechanical preparation) • Structural Plywood (non marine grade)
Advantages• EMICODE EC 1plus, very low emissions. • watertight • self cross-linking, hydraulic rapid hardening • for interior & exterior use • dust reduced • solvent free • highly flexible • crack bridging • suitable for application on subfloor heating systems • frost resistant • shrinkage - optimised • comsumption - optimised • difussion permiable • high bond strength • resistant against ageing • easy to apply

*Coverage will vary due to surface flatness, & application techniques
• All substrate shall be installed as per manufacturers instructions, fit for purpose and designed to handle the loads of a Tile and Stone system.
• Substrate Deflection: All substrates under loads must not exceed L/360 for Tiles and L/450 for Stone.
• Substrates must be properly cured, structurally sound, free from loose or friable particles, clean, dry, and free from contaminates such as dust, dirt, oil grease, curing compounds, crystaline admixtures/sealers, laitance or effloresence.
• Dependant on substrate condition and contamination to be removed from the surface, perform adequate scarification, or blast cleaning in order to remove all traces of any materials that could reduce the product adhesion to the substrate.
• It is recommended to pre-dampen or prime with Eco Prime WB fibre cement boards prior to application of iFix adhesive.
Slow speed mixing drill (Max 500RPM)
Schonox iFix can be installed with the Schonox iFix Tool Kit, consisting of
Schonox AB Smoothing Tool
Schonox AB Knife
Schonox iFix 100mm Roller
Schonox iFix 180mm Roller
Pour the 3kg iFix powder into the ifix 4.8Ltr liquid and mix for 3 minutes with a slow speed drill to a smooth homogenous lump free consistancy. Once mixed iFix adhesive is ready to apply.
Do not add any water.
Application of floor / wall junctions and corners, Schonox ST Tape, and ST corners
Apply the Schonox iFix adhesive to the substrates junctions with the Schonox iFix 100mm roller to acheive a minimum 1mm wet film thickness. Immediately embed the Schonox ST Corners into the wet adhesive and press flat with the Schonox smoothing tool.
Ensure the excess adhesive squeezed through sheet joint is rolled flat. Ensure the Schonox ST Tape is overlapped by a minimum of 50mm. Embed the Schonox ST tape into the adhesive and press flat with smoothning tool.
Application of Pipe Penetrations, Schonox ST D8, D15, D25 & D65 Sleeves
For pvc fitting and puddle flanges, clean, and apply a single coat of CTA Prep n Prime and allow to dry.
For Metal fittings, lightly abrade with steel wool or similar and clean any residue with Isopropyl Alcohol and wipe clean. Then apply a single coat of CTA Prep n Prime and allow to dry.
Apply the Schonox iFix adhesive around penetrations as required and embed the Schonox ST sleeve into the adhesive and flatten with Schonox iFix smoothing tool.
Application of the Schonox AB Sheet membrane
Measure and cut the sheet as required allowing for a minimum 50mm overlap at all joins. Apply the iFix adhesive with the Schonox iFix 180mm roller to a minimum 1mm wet film thickness and embed the sheet into the wet adhesive and immediately flatten the sheet with the Schonox iFix smoothing to remove any air bubbles. Repeat process as required by gradually rolling the sheet into the wet adhesive and flatten with Schonox smoothing tool accordingly. Ensure adhesive doesnt skin prior to placement of the Schonox Ab Sheet.
Waterstop Angles, and Terminations
Penetrations can be terminated into pipes as required with the Schonox Ifix Adhesive with requirement of the Shonox St Tape.
Shonox iFix can be used to adhere metal waterstop angles with Sikaflex 11FC sealant used where angles terminate at wall junctions.
Highly porous substrate may be pre-dampened to increase open time
Ensure all joins are overcoated with Schonox iFix adhesive to provide a watertight finish.
CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT
Cleaning of tools can be done with water while adhesive is still wet.
