MB FL 2K – THE BONDED WATERPROOFING WONDER

MB FL 2K heralds in a new era of bonded waterproofing. This wonder product combines the properties of a mineral waterproofing slurry, flexible tile cement and water-tight grout. The 3 in 1 bonded waterproofing material can be used for a wide array of applications, but it’s in the restoration of old buildings that it really gets a chance to shine. MB FL 2K can be used on substrates such as old tiles without any problems. The waterproofing system is certified according to ETAG 022 and is approved for all water impact classes from W0-I to W3-I.

3 in 1: waterproofing, bonding, 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.

Talent mustn’t be wasted!

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.

Waterproofing with a feel-good factor!

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 (referred to as AIV-F for short). With a wearing surface made from tiles or slabs, bonded waterproofing can be used in compliance with the standards for waterproofing the following:

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

Compliant waterproofing, the easy way!

One product, 3 applications – waterproofing, adhesive and 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.

    The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.

    Field of application

    • For use on floors indoors and outdoors
    • 3 in 1: waterproofing, tile cement and joint mortar
    • Interior and exterior, floor areas
    • Waterproofing in a bond under tiles
    • Suitable for new and old buildings
    • Waterproofing balconies, loggias and pergolas
    • Waterproofing bathrooms and transition areas in swimming pools

    Properties

    • Joint width of 6 - 12 mm
    • For heated floor coverings
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be level, clean, dust-free and stable, and free of oil, grease and release agents.

        Roughen non-mineral and pore-free substrates.

        On fresh screeds, the residual moisture must not exceed 3%.

      • 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).

        Reinforce transitions to balcony edge profiles with Tape VF.

        When using as waterproofing: use Tape VF to reinforce transition areas such as full-length window elements, inner corners and floor/wall joins.

        Depending on weather conditions and positioning, green discolouration may occur on exterior joints. In order to prevent green growth on the surfaces filled with MB FL 2K, it is recommended to add Remmers Protect MKT 1. Add approx. 78 ml of Remmers Protect MKT 1 to one pouch of liquid component.

        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 MB FL 2K waterproofing to the substrate in two coats using suitable tools. The minimum dry layer thickness for both waterproofing layers must be at least 2 mm.

        In connection and transition areas, the joint tapes and moulded parts of the Tape VF series are to be inserted into the still fresh first waterproofing layer and covered with the second waterproofing layer.

         

        Laying the tiles:

        Once the waterproofing layers have fully dried, use a notched trowel to apply MB FL 2K as a thin-bed mortar. It is recommended to use the buttering-floating method for exteriors. Place the tile onto the fresh mortar bed, applying light pressure. To avoid skin formation, only apply as much thin-bed mortar as can be covered with tiles in approx. 15 min.

        Immediately remove fresh mortar residues from the top of the covering with water to avoid stronger adhesions.

        Remove excess mortar from the joint network.

         

        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
      • Mixing apparatus, smoothing trowel, notched trowel, rubber scraper

      • 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.
