Application Description

Tile & grout systems are comprised of many layers, including the waterproofing membrane, tile mastic, grout, and grout sealer. MCP offers products for each of these applications within the tile & grout system. Considerations have been made around water resistance, flexibility, cement compatibility and adhesion requirements.

Products

ACRYLIC EMULSION

  • Polymer
  • Solids (%)
  • Viscosity (cps)
  • Tg (°C)
  • Rovene® 6127
  • 48.0 - 49.0
  • 300 max
  • +50
  • Rovene 6127 is a clear drying, 100% acrylic, water resistant latex emulsion designed to provide protection for all types of concrete, cementitious and rigid surfaces.

CARBOXYLATED STYRENE-BUTADIENE EMULSION

  • Polymer
  • Solids (%)
  • Viscosity (cps)
  • Tg (°C)
  • BarrierPro® 4551
  • 52.5 - 54.5
  • 1000 max
  • +7
  • BarrierPro 4551 is a carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion with excellent strength properties, high resistance to liquid water and water vapor, high blush resistance and excellent adhesion to multiple construction substrates.

  • Tylac® 4190
  • 50.5 - 54.5
  • 200 max
  • +3
  • Tylac 4190 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer recommended for use in concrete, mortars, grouts and cement mixtures.

  • Tylac® 4191
  • 47.0 - 49.0
  • 200 max
  • +3
  • Tylac 4191 is a surfactant stabilized styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer with excellent cement compatibility for concrete, decorative overlays, grout and mortars.

  • BarrierPro® 4555
  • 50.0 - 52.0
  • 1000 max
  • -17
  • BarrierPro 4555 is a styrene-butadiene emulsion polymer of low stiffness. It dries to form a soft but tough film. Its softness makes it excellent for water proofing where films must remain flexible at below-freezing temperatures.

STYRENE ACRYLIC EMULSION

  • Polymer
  • Solids (%)
  • Viscosity (cps)
  • Tg (°C)
  • Rovene® 6018
  • 50.5 - 51.5
  • 100 - 800
  • +24
  • Rovene 6018 is a silanated styrene-acrylic emulsion specifically designed for formulation of construction adhesives such as ceramic tile mastics and carpet adhesives.

NON-CARBOXYLATED STYRENE-BUTADIENE EMULSION

  • Polymer
  • Solids (%)
  • Viscosity (cps)
  • Tg (°C)
  • Rovene® 4040
  • 49.0 - 51.5
  • 100 - 750
  • +6
  • Rovene 4040 is a non-carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion designed for use as a concrete modifier. It is used as a tile grout mastic modifier where it enhances adhesion.
