    ANNOUNCING THE LATEST ADDITION TO THE ULTRALITE® FAMILY: ULTRALITE® D2

    Announcing the latest addition to the Ultralite® family: Ultralite® D2 is a ready-mixed, lightweight and brilliant white adhesive for ceramic wall tiles, ideal for areas such as residential and commercial showers and wetrooms.


    Bright white Ultralite® D2 can be used with large format tiles up to 350mm x 350mm, producing up to 45% extra yield compared to standard weight adhesive. An area of up to 8m² can be tiled from one bucket[1] when using standard size wall tiles.


    Jason Brunt, Ceramic Product Manager at Mapei UK commented “As our light weight technology moves on in the cement based market, we were keen to develop similar technology in our ready mixed business. We have developed this adhesive as a cost effective brilliant white adhesive and its performance far exceeds the expectations of a ready mixed adhesive. I encourage tile fixers to price compare on meterage rates for this high quality Mapei adhesive”.


    Ultralite® D2 is a ready to use paste and has excellent initial grab. The viscosity of the paste enables easy trowelling on to vertical surfaces, providing excellent coverage when fixing larger tiles. Ultralite® D2 can be used for installing porous bodied ceramic tiles and mosaics onto internal walls and highly deformable substrates in both commercial and domestic areas, fixing tiles to plasterboard, plaster walls and tile backer boards, as well as painted surfaces or existing tile surfaces.


    Contact Mapei’s Technical Services Department on 0121 508 6970 for more information about using Ultralite® adhesives in your project.

    Hi T.T. Tiling & Bathrooms,

    Hope you're well!

    According to recognised industry standards (and with respect to a ceramic biscuit tile), a tile larger than 300 x 300mm is classed as a large format tile - it is based on this that we have classed 350 x 350mm as a large format tile.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Kevsalt,

    The notch size of the trowel doesn't matter however the bed depth shouldn't exceed 5mm.

    Kind regards,
