    Mapei – Mapeflex Firestop 1200 – Box of 12

    £60.00

    Mapeflex Firestop 1200 °C is a one-component, asbestos-free, quick-setting, rigid, silicate refractory fire resistant sealing grout, high temperatures and fumes.
    Ideal for making rigid seals in chimneys, ovens, radiators, barbecues, flues and fire-break walls. Also suitable for pointing or for installation layers on refractory bricks when building or carrying out maintenance work on elements in continuous, permanent contact with flames or heat up to +1200°C, with temporary peak temperatures up to +1600°C.

    Some application examples are rigid grouting of joints, for missing areas and installation layers for new elements in contact with flames or at very high temperatures when in service.

    It is most frequently used for the following applications:
    – ovens;
    – chimneys;
    – radiators;
    – barbecues;
    – flues;
    – rigid fire-break joints.

    Bonds to all porous, absorbent substrates after the contact surface has been cleaned and dampened with water.

    TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C is a soft paste in emulsion which forms rigid grout when the water contained in it has evaporated off. When large quantities are applied, fresh
    paste on the hardened layer may be required. Mapeflex FireStop 1200°C must be applied and left to dry at room temperature and then the substrate must be gradually heated up after at least 24 hours at +23°C.

    Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C is a rigid, non-deformable sealant, Similarly to grout, it is made from sodium silicate and special mineral fillers and is completely free of hazardous toxic substances, such as asbestos.
    When fully hardened, Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C is a class A1 non-combustible product according to EN 13501.

    When Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C comes into contact with fire or heat it does not increase in volume.

    Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C is odourless and contains no solvents.

    RECOMMENDATIONS –

    Do not apply in these conditions , for instance –

    –  On dusty or crumbly surfaces.
    – Surfaces with stagnant water or with capillary rising damp.
    –  Joints that are subject to cyclical movements.
    – Or use on surfaces exposed to frequent contact with rainwater or high levels of humidity.

    Other recommendations –

    – Wear protective gloves and goggles when handling the product.
    – Remove traces of excess sealant immediately after smoothing it over with a damp sponge.
    – Different masses in the first volume of product extruded do not compromise the efficiency of the sealant.

    APPLICATION PROCEDURE

    Preparation of the surface for bonding or sealing all surfaces to be bonded or sealed must be dry or slightly damp, sound and free of dust, loose parts, oil, grease, wax, old paintwork and rust on metal surfaces.

    Preparation and application of Mapeflex Firestop 1200°C – Insert the cartridge in an extrusion gun, cut off the tip of the cartridge, screw on the extrusion nozzle, trim the nozzle at an angle of 45° and according to the extruded width required and squeeze out the product in a continuous flow into the joint while trying to avoid air entering the joint.

    To avoid the sealant seeping out of the joint and to get a more attractive finish, we recommend applying masking tape along the edges of the joint.

    When pointing joints of refractory bricks on new or old structures, remove all loose parts to form a section suitable for the sealant at least 5×5 mm. Dampen absorbent substrates to avoid
    the extruded sealant drying out too quickly.

    On substrates at the surrounding temperature (up to +35°C) apply the sealant by extruding it from the cartridge with a conventional silicone gun & fill the section with sealant. After that, smooth over the surface with something damp, for instance, a sponge and remove all excess material before it hardens. After that, the hardened material excess may only be removed mechanically.

    CONSUMPTION

    • For pointing joints: 5×5 mm section approx. 12 m per cartridge
    • 10×10 mm section approx. 3 per cartridge.
    • For laying refractory bricks: approx. 4 m per cartridge.

    CLEANING

    Clean all tools immediately after use with water.
    Once hardened, the product may only be removed mechanically.

    Mapei Fuga Fresca – Grout Reviver (26 Colours)

    £8.95 £6.65

    Mapei Fuga Fresca is designed to be the perfect product for giving old and stained grout that new look finish. The Fuga comes in a small, blue handheld, shoe polish style case with a foam applicator end. A shake and a squeeze will fill the foam end with the Fuga paint ready for application.

    During application, there can be some overlay onto the tiles (or another surface that the grout in between). This can be cleaned off, but we recommend that you do so as you go, so it doesn’t have time to dry. A good cleaning product would be Everbuild wonder wipes, that can be found here, or you can use a damp sponge. As it is water based, you shouldn’t struggle to clean it off as you go.

    RECOMMENDATIONS

    Areas of use, simply put, any internal grout, it is not recommended for external grout or any grout that is constantly immersed in water, i.e. swimming pools, basins etc. Epoxy grout is an exception as it is already stain proof. It would also be advised not to use the Fuga Fresca on friable grout, anything loose or not crumbly, as it simply won’t work. If after the first application the colour difference between the original grout and the first coat of Fuga, it may be the case of needing an additional coat to strengthen the colour. This only works on grout, please do not use on silicone.

    APPLICATION

    Ensure that the joints are free from loose parts, dirt and any mould free. Once cleaned, the grout joint needs to be dry before the application of the Fuga Fresca and after the application any overlay on the tiles to be removed as mentioned above. Once finished with the Fuga Fresca, it’s advised to thoroughly clean the sponge end; this can be done by running it under a tap.

    COLOURS AVAILABLE

    Available in 34 colours of the “MAPEI coloured grouts” range to match the AC silicone range, which you can view here. Alternately, these colours also match the Mapei Ultracolor Plus grout range, that can be found here.

    STORAGE

    Twenty-four months from manufacture date, sealed in its original container stored under normal conditions, protect from frost.

    SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS APPLICATION

    Please refer to the safety and technical data sheet for more information on the safety instructions, and applications.

Can be used internally and externally for grouting floors and walls in all types of ceramic. For instance, double-fired, single-fired, clinker, porcelain, etc.), terracotta, stone material, such as natural stone, marble, granite & agglomerates. Similarly with glass and marble mosaic.

    Application examples

    – For grouting floors and walls that are subject to high levels of traffic (airports, shopping centres, restaurants, bars, etc.).
    – Applying to walls & floors in residential areas (hotels, private houses, etc.).
    – Similarly, with grouting floors and walls on façades, balconies and on swimming pools.

    TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Ultracolor Plus creates a grouting mortar with the following features:

    – Water-repellent and droplet-effect
    – Colours resistant to ultra-violet rays and atmospheric agents
    – After roughly 3 hours, ready for light foot traffic.
    – After that is shrinkage compensated, therefore free from cracks

    Therefore it has optimum resistance to abrasion, compression and flexural strength, even after freeze/thaw cycles, and therefore optimum durability. In addition, it has good resistance to acids with pH > 3.

    RECOMMENDATIONS

    – Ultracolor Plus does not contain Portland cement and must not be mixed with gypsum or other binders.
    – Use the product at temperatures between +5°C and +35°C.
    – To avoid an uneven finish, we do not recommend sprinkling Ultracolor Plus powder onto the filled grout joints.
    – Do not use Ultracolor Plus grout in expansion and movement joints.
    – In conclusion, the surface of certain tiles or stone material may have micro-porosity or a rough surface. We advise carrying out a preliminary test to check how easy it is to clean the surface where necessary to apply a protective treatment to the surface. In other words, this is to ensure the grout does not penetrate into the surface porosity of the tiles.

    Matching silicone available here. Alternatively, if you are looking at revving your current grout, we offer the Mapei Fuga Fresca, ideal for dulling grout to be brought back to life.

The product comes in a 310ml cartridge & has a range of 42 colours to choose from. Mapei also colour match this product to their Ultracolor plus grout range, creating a seamless transition between grout & silicone lines when used together.

    To view the Ultracolor plus range – please click here.

    USES

    – Perfect for sealing sanitary areas
    – Kitchens
    – Bathrooms
    – Internal Application
    – Ideal for use with ceramics
    – Can be used on wooden frames
    – Can also be used for Expansion Joints

    RECOMMENDATIONS

    – Mapesil AC should not be used in applications between joints of ceramic tiles & natural stone of light colour externally. Use Mapesil LM, which can be viewed here.
    – Should not be used for sealing of surfaces sensitive to acids, such as limestone. Again, use Mapesil LM.
    – Do not use on bituminous surfaces or highly plasticized material.
    – Mapesil AC’s chemical resistance to agents is typically excellent. However, we advise you to check the technical data sheet or do a small test.

    APPLICATION

    All areas needing application must be solid, free from dust and loose particles, oils, grease, wax, old paint and rust. To guarantee the seal can carry out its function, provision should be made for it to compress freely.

    During application, it is, therefore, necessary that:

    – Mapei AC only adheres to the side of the walls of the joint and not to be used at the base of the joint;
    – The estimated maximum extension should be no higher than 25% of the initial width (calculated at +20°C). The joint should be sized with this in mind

    – Joint width and depth must follow as below:

    10mm Width = 10mm Depth

    11mm – 20mm Width = 10mm Depth

    20mm or above Width = Half of the width in depth.

    With the Mapesil AC, cut the cartridge at the end of the thread and screw supplied nozzle on. Ensure the nozzle is cut at an angle and dimension to the corresponding joint. Insert the cartridge into the gun and expel the sealant.

    We have a number of tools on our website that would assist with the application of this product. We would recommend using a PC Cox Skeleton Gun to apply & a Bond-it Tooling Kit to aid in providing a professional finish.

Mapei Silicone Sealants

Mapei silicone sealants are mold and mildew-resistant suitable for interior and exterior applications. The sealant is solvent-free which is ideal for use underwater. It is also available in a variety of colours and transparent to match the Mapei coloured grouts.

This range of sealants is suitable for use on glass, anodised aluminium, and ceramic. For effective results, combine it with a bonding enhancer. The Mapei range of sealants is highly elastic and can be used for expansion of joints up to ± 25%.

The sealants also have excellent durability and can weather long use as well as exposure to different elements. Their thermal stability allows use at -40°C to +180°C. For best results, after application, finish off with a damp cloth moistened with soapy water before the sealant forms a film.

Mapei Mapesil Silicone can be used for a wide variety of applications. These include sealing joints in floor and wall coverings both ceramic and cemented, sealing joints between sinks, ceramic tiles, and sanitary ware, sealing swimming pool expansion joints, and sealing window and door frame glazing among others.

These sealants are a single component and acetic cross-linking variety. Being a thixotropic paste, the sealant is also easily trowelable vertically and horizontally. The sealant works by cross linking and forming an elastic product after exposure to humidity. The resulting product is waterproof, highly elastic, chemical resistant, and easily workable.
