PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER tile adhesive
PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER is a rigid set, exceptionally high strength, high quality cement based
adhesive developed to bond most types of ceramic tiles for wall and ﬂ oor applications. Ideal for bonding
porcelain, monocottura, bicottura, natural stone, marble, granite and mosaic tiles onto cement render walls
and ﬂ oors, rendered brickwork and rendered concrete. Suitable for both internal and external, thick and thin
bed applications. To produce a resilient adhesive with improved adhesion, ﬂ exural and compressive strength
mix with PROHESIVE PROLASTIC as a total water replacement.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, free from dust, grease, wax, oil, laitance, curing compounds, release agents,
paint, coatings, friable material and all other contaminants likely to prevent the adhesive bonding. Cement
render/screeds must be allowed to cure for 7 days, concrete to be left with a wood ﬂ oat ﬁ nish and allowed
to cure for at least 28 days before tiling. Refer to the substrate test guide below for recommended surface
preparation. Certain non-absorbent/impervious substrates that are suitable for tiling should be primed using
Aqua Blök™ Epoxy Seal. For further information, contact the CTA Technical Department. Aqua Blök™ Epoxy
Seal should be used as a primer over Prohesive approved polyurethane waterprooﬁ ng membranes.
20kg of PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER powder requires approximately 5 litres of water. Add a measured
amount of clean water into a clean container and sprinkle PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER powder slowly
into the liquid with constant stirring. Eliminate lumps. Mix to a thick toothpaste consistency. Allow to stand
for 5 minutes, then remix. The adhesive is now ready to use. PROHESIVE PROLASTIC must be used
as a total water replacement in areas subject to vibration, thermal ﬂ uctuation, expansion or contraction,
immersed applications and when adhering to impervious substrates or tiles. When laying tiles/mosaics in
continuous immersion applications ensure that a minimum 90% of adhesive contact is achieved to the back
of the tile/mosaic cube, not mesh/matting, (paper or other) or the mesh matting glue. Recommended for
tiling over PROHESIVE approved waterprooﬁ ng membranes only when mixed with undiluted PROHESIVE
All workmanship must be carried out in accordance with AS3958.1-2007.
Apply the mixed adhesive to the prepared substrate using the appropriate notched trowel for the size of the
tile being laid. A minimum of 1mm bed thickness for walls and a minimum of 3mm and a maximum of 12mm
for ﬂ oors must be achieved. Ensure that the tiles are fully supported by the adhesive with no voids. Do
not spread more than 1m2 of PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER at a time. Lay tiles into the adhesive before
it skins. If the adhesive skins, re-spread the adhesive. Do not disturb tiles until the adhesive has cured.
Discard any PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER that has hardened or stiffened in the mixing bucket. Further
addition of water will not reconstitute a useable mixture.
PROHESIVE PROSET SUPER can be removed from the surface of the tiles using a damp cloth while
the adhesive is still wet. Tools and equipment can be cleaned with warm water and detergent prior to the
2.5 hours at 22°C and 50%RH Setting time: 24 hours at 22°C and 50%RH.
6.6m² per 20kg bag using a 6mm notched trowel and 3.3m² using a 12mm notched trowel.
Unopened bags can be stored for up to 12 months in a cool, dry and weatherproof environment. Bags must
be stored off the ﬂ oor.
PROHESIVE supports best practice in material handling: gloves, mask, safety goggles and protective
clothing should be worn. If the product comes into contact with the skin, wash off with warm soapy water.
Avoid inhaling the dust by wearing a suitable dust mask and provide adequate ventilation. If swallowed drink
plenty of water and seek medical advice. In case of contact with the eyes, rinse with an eye wash or wash
away with plenty of water.
