Text of Using ISO 13007 and ANSI A118 standards

Using ISO 13007 and ANSI A118 standards to improve product selections for tile and stone installationsAN S I A118 standards were established by the American National Standards Institute and are used mainly by companies manufacturing for markets in the United States and Canada. The ANSI A118 standards have been used for years by architects when specifying which materials should be included on their projects in North America. An ANSI specification defines a minimal acceptable level of 13007 standards were established by the International Standards Organization and are used by manufacturers in 165 countries throughout the world to produce a variety of mortars and grouts. The ISO 13007 classifications define the individual characteristics of these mortars and grouts. These classifications assist the architect in better specifying which materials should be used in their particular projects based on the current ISO 13007 standards and the recently added ANSI standard concerning mortars for tile and stone installations indicate specific properties for meeting the needs of project ISO 13007 standards in conjunction with the new ANSI standard, architects can quickly identify and define the products needed for tile or stone applications, without worrying about inferior substitutions to their 13007 and ANSI standards are important guides in selecting the best products for every with the ISO 13007 standards and classifications The standards express product classifications alphanumerically, using simple letters and numbers. Letters describe the chemical nature of the adhesive (such as cement-based, mastic, epoxy or urethane) along with special characteristics (such as fast-setting, slip-resistant or deformable). Numbers indicate whether the product performance is normal (such as normal bond strength, for light to medium traffic use, etc.) or improved (such as higher bond strength, for high traffic use, etc.).Examples of MAPEI mortars and grouts that are classified under ISO 13 0 07: Ultraflex LFT C2TES1P1 Granirapid System C2FS2P2 Ultraflex 1 C2E Ultracolor Plus CG2WAF Ultraflex 2 C2EP1 Kerapoxy IEG RG Ultraflex 3 C2ES1P1ISO 13007 classificationsAdhesivesTypesClassesSpec ial CharacteristicsC = Cementitious(Thin-set mortars)1 = Normal2 = ImprovedF = Fast-settingT = Slip-resistantE = Extended open timeS1 = DeformableS2 = Highly deformableP1 = Plywood adhesionP2 = Improved plywood adhesionD = Dispersion (Mastics)1 = Normal 2 = ImprovedA = Accelerated drying T = Slip-resistantE = Extended open timeR = Reaction resin (Epoxies & Urethanes)1 = Normal2 = ImprovedT = Slip-resistantGroutsTypesClassesSpecial CharacteristicsCG = Cementitious grouts1 = Normal2 = ImprovedF = Fast-settingA = High abrasion resistanceW = Reduced water absorptionRG = Reaction resin grouts_Higher performance characteristics than improved cementitious groutsISO 13007 classifications appear on MAPEI packaging and literatureDESCRIPTIONUltraflex 3 is a premium-grade, single-component, high-performance, polymer-modified thin-set mortar for interior and exterior installations of tile.

These steps included the publishing of the standard for Improved Modified Dry-Set Cement Mortar (recognizing mortars with improved performance) and adding letter designations to , and for fast-setting (F), thixotropic (T) and extended open time (E) mortars. Additional work continues for mortars designed to be used thicker than traditional thin-bed methods.

Premium, Rapid-Setting, Flexible Tile MortarGranirapid SystemGranirapid SystemGranirapid Granirapid Large-format floor tile in a multi-level shopping mall concourse with heavy foot traffic When tile is being set on a new or renovated mall, cracks can be present in the underlying substrate. Mapeguard 2 can be used for this crack isolation. For applications where substrates are subject to deflecting loads, as with a suspended slab in a three-story mall, it is critical to have a significant level of flexibility that allows for sufficient expansion and contraction. A mortar with the ISO 13007 designation S2 , the performance classification for improved deformability, is the key to a successful installation and Granirapid System meets these needs. Heavy traffic areas that may be subject to scuffs and stains require a high-strength reaction resin grout (ISO 13007 classification RG) that is nonsagging as well as resistant to stains/chemicals. Kerapoxy CQ offers these attributes for the best room showers When designing a tile installation system for community gang showers in a locker room, it is key that all installation layers are compatible and designed for a continuous wet environment (TCNA Environmental Classification COM 4) with some thermal growth and shrinkage, and ability to stand up to rigorous daily cleaning regimens during their life cycle. A liquid-applied waterproofing that meets ISO 13007-5 and ANSI , such as Mapelastic AquaDefense, ensures a continuous topical moisture barrier from constant shower use. When choosing the tile mortar that can handle this application s continuous traffic and use, it is important to use a mortar with an ISO 13007 improved tensile bond strength ( C2 ) and normal deformability ( S1 ), such as Ultraflex LFT. Strategically choosing a grout for this environment is crucial as the first line of defense against water intrusion, potential for bacterial growth, stain/chemical attack and abrasion. Using a reaction resin grout classified as ISO 13007 RG should be specified. Kerapoxy CQ provides this level of protection and peace of tile on a building exposed to extreme temperaturesThermal growth and shrinkage must be considered for mortars and grouts exposed to extreme cold/hot temperatures throughout the year. Such considerations require a mortar with an improved bond ( C2 ) and improved deformability ( S2 ). The Kerabond T / Keralastic mortar system fully meets these requirements. Likewise, ongoing exposure to movement, abrasion and moisture necessitates a grout with improved performance capabilities ( CG2 ), while exposure to extensive abrasion and moisture requires the additional ISO 13007 classifications A (for high abrasion resistance) and W (for reduced water absorption). Such a grout would provide the required performance levels needed for a facade subject to driving rain and wind.
