3 in 1: waterproofing, adhesing, grouting

MB FL 2K is the new, innovative solution for bonded waterproofing. It combines the properties of a mineral waterproofing slurry, flexible tile cement and water-tight grout in a single product. There are many advantages to using MB FL 2K.

  • 3 in 1 – waterproofing, adhesing and grouting
  • Bonded waterproofing in old and new buildings
  • High adhesion on many substrates
  • For natural stone not susceptible to discolouration
  • Joints in a wide range of colour shades
  • Decoupling of critical substrates

Talent must be used!

Tested safety on every terrain

MB FL 2K can be used for a diverse range of applications in compliance with the relevant standards, whether renovating an old building or constructing a new one. The waterproofing system is certified according to ETAG 022 and is approved for all water impact classes from W0-I to W3-I. MB FL 2K can be used for long-lasting and reliable waterproofing not just in domestic bathrooms but also in commercial shower facilities and areas around swimming pools.

Conventional bonded waterproofing materials under ceramic floor coverings traditionally represent a weak point. Although the wearing surface made from tiles or slabs is water-tight, water can still penetrate into the construction through the mineral grouting. Thanks to its special material composition, MB FL 2K offers significantly greater protection against penetrating moisture, making it an especially good choice for exterior areas such as balconies or terraces.

Seal with a good feeling!

Bonded waterproofing: a rising star

The method of installing waterproofing as a composite structure with tiles and slabs has become increasingly popular in recent decades, and with good reason. First introduced in 1987, this method has established itself as a commonly used and highly durable waterproofing system that is backed up by real-life practice as well as regulatory frameworks. Bonded waterproofing has had the status of a standard-compliant waterproofing system since 2017, with the introduction of the DIN 18531–18535 series of standards.
Three sections of this standard deal with liquid-applied waterproofing materials in a bond with tiles and slabs. With a wearing surface made from tiles or slabs, bonded waterproofing can be used in compliance with the standard for waterproofing the following:

  • Balconies and walkways (DIN 18531 part 5)
  • Interiors (DIN 18534)
  • Tanks and pools (DIN 18535)

Simple sealing in compliance with standards!

One product, three applications – waterproofing, adhesive & grout

Waterproofing

The mineral waterproofing slurry guarantees reliable and straightforward application every time. Thanks to fast drying times, surfaces are ready for further work after just a few hours.

Tile cement

The main strengths of MB FL 2K are its exceptional flexibility and long open time, making it ideal for use on complex substrates such as old tiling.

Grout

As a water-impermeable grout, MB FL 2K is ideal for exterior use. Thanks to its light base colour, the grout can be tinted to give a variety of colour finishes.

    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dry, flat and capable of bearing a load, and free of dust, oil, grease and release agents.

        Roughen non-mineral and pore-free substrates.

        Absorbent mineral substrates, not self-compacting concrete (SCC), may be slightly damp.

      • Preparations

        Remove projecting seams and mortar remains.

        Break off or chamfer corners and edges.

        Prime absorbent mineral substrates with Kiesol MB.

        Create a scratch coat using the product as a contact layer and in order to prevent blisters.

        If necessary, use suitable products to level out any sloping (e.g. Betofix R4 EM).

        Waterproofing:

        Reinforce connection areas such as floor-to-ceiling doors and window elements, internal corners, floor-to-wall connections and transitions to balcony edge profiles with joint tape from the Tape VF series.

        In interior areas:

        Interiors: calcium sulfate screeds must be sanded then vacuumed.

        Residual moisture CA/CAF screed heated < 0.3 CM-%/ unheated <0.5 CM-%.

        Prime gypsum-based substrates (Primer Hydro F).

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 25 °C
      • Working time 45 min
      • Waterproofing:

        Apply at least two coats of the product to the prepared substrate in accordance with the regulations.

        The total dry layer thickness must be ≥ 2 mm.

        Connection details/building element joints

        Reinforce internal corners and connection joints, as well as connections to non-mineral building components with joint tape from the Tape VF series.

        Apply the product, embed Tape VF over the entire surface, ensuring that there are no bubbles or creases.

        Laying the tiles:

        Existing waterproofing layers must be completely dry before further work is carried out.

        Apply the product as a thin-bed mortar using a suitable notched trowel, and lay the covering material in the fresh mortar bed before a skin forms.

        In outdoor areas or when laying large-format tiles and slabs, application using the buttering floating method is recommended.

        Immediately remove any soiling / mortar residue on the surface of the covering with water, keep the joint area free of mortar residue.

        Grouting tiles:

        The joints must be completely dry to avoid trapping moisture in the joint. Apply MB FL 2K grout to the joints with an epoxy grouting scraper in sections. If necessary, the consistency for use as a grout can be adjusted by adding max. 300 ml clean water (to 6.67 kg material). Wipe surfaces promptly with a sponge and wash clean with a sponge float and water. After complete drying, residues/adhesions can be cleaned with Remmers Clean FL.

    • Application instructions
      • In the case of liquid-applied waterproofing materials, direct sunlight and/or wind exposure can cause accelerated skin formation and accompanying blistering.

        Do not use in direct sunlight.

        Do not use on untreated aluminium.

        The scratch layer does not as a rule count as a waterproofing layer.

        The maximum total wet coat thickness must not exceed 5 mm.

        Moving the material (e.g. by stirring) in the mixing bucket can prevent premature skin formation.

        Mortar that has already set cannot be made workable again by adding
        water or fresh mortar.

        Protect the fresh waterproofing layer from rain, direct sunlight, frost and condensation water.

        Once dry, protect from mechanical damage.

        Add a further load-distributing layer if using the product for waterproofing under raised floor supports.

        Ensure sufficient ventilation when applying the product in closed areas (wear respiratory protection if necessary).

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Clean tools with water while the material is still fresh.

        Any material that has already begun to dry can only be removed mechanically.

        Dry, adhering material can be cleaned with Remmers Clean FL.
