Polymer Modified Mortars


ANSI A118.11 Premium Thin-Set Mortar-Polymer Modified Mortars

PROFLEX® SUPERSTICK® is a polymer modified dry set mortar composed of sand, cement, dry resins and other proprietary chemicals used to adhere virtually all types of tile, especially large tile units, marble, and granite to acceptable surfaces. SUPERSTICK® is ideal for use over all PROFLEX® membranes to assure maximum performance. SUPERSTICK® is especially formulated to hold large units in place on vertical surfaces, and also reduces unevenness caused by setting of the tile when used on horizontal surfaces.
