Silic8 AF1 is a water based mineral adhesive and primer specially designed for use with AeroGel fleece, boards or tiles. Silic8 AF1 can be used for priming and adhesion, typically mineral substrates, historic plaster, stone, brick etc.  Used in combination with our penetrating solutions, AF1 bonds with substrates while remaining vapour open. It can be used in combination with our other Silic8 products. Patent pending. AF1 is available in 9kg or 20kg UN certified containers

AF1 is water-based, has no odour and is certified as non-combustible and vapour permeable. It is a natural mineral and water-glass adhesive and free from any other co-binders such as solvents, acrylic, gypsum and cement. Use to create a flexible, durable and non-combustible bond to adhere AeorGel fleece insulation to substrates prior to plastering and decorating.
