    Keraquick XL Fibrelite is the latest lightweight flooring adhesive from Mapei. Fibre reinforced, Keraquick XL Fibrelite has the properties to fix sizes of large format tiles up to 1500mm x 1500mm in both residential and commercial installations.


    With a high yield, the cement-based adhesive is suitable for installing porcelain, ceramic and non-moisture sensitive natural stone materials to floors, including those with electrical underfloor heating systems. When hardened the adhesive is frost and water resistant which means it is suitable for both interior and exterior applications.


    Jason Brunt, Ceramic Product Manager at Mapei UK commented: “Mapei have developed Keraquick XL Fibrelite to help the tile installer achieve 100% contact with the popular larger format floor tiles we see today, with less effort. Mapei’s new adhesive mixes to the ideal semi pourable consistency contacting the tile fully to the substrate with ease.”


    Keraquick XL Fibrelite is a powder adhesive manufactured at Mapei’s UK factory in the West Midlands. Composed of a mixture of special cements, selectively graded aggregates, synthetic resins, fibres and setting accelerators, Keraquick XL Fibrelite develops a high bond strength only 90 minutes after setting which allows for installations to be completed very quickly; floors can be walked on and general foot traffic allowed after 12 hours.

    Don’t understand why manufacturers keep coming out with new fast setting adhesives all the time. Surely if you ask most tile shops that supply to professional tilers they would would see that 80% bought would be standard set 20% fast set. I only use fast set on small bathroom floors that I want to grout same day eg

    My working life would be hell without rapid set, but I’m more commercial than domestic.
