We used

CA20 on a seminar put a 6x6 wall tile onto a 12x12 floor tile in a bucket of water...5 min. later one of the tile guys broke the 6x6 trying to pull it off the bigger tile... yet it was still pliable enough to move the tile horizontally. I hope this makes sense to you guys. It is a very good product...I have even recommended it to roofer, and home owners to fix leaks in the rain.

FWIW, the training guys at Schluter said they have used KerdiFix to repair an above ground pool without having to drain anything...similar thing...the stuff bonds and waterproofs even in the presence of water.

sika construction adhesive vs sealant

reading this thread, seems like both sika construction adhesive and construction sealant is being used as a kerdi fix alternative?

one is blue, the other is green.

can either be used in place of kerdi-fix?

cx showed a pic of the sealants he uses- sika construction sealant but it seems like the op is referring to the adhesive.

I was just at Home Depot a couple of weeks ago and saw that they had a foam board sealant. I forget the brand- maybe the PL line? Didn't take a close look but was going to look into it further at some point. Maybe someone here already has some info on it?

Which specific Sika product are you referring to? They make a number of sealants.

Read the spec sheets VERY carefully. The only SikaFlex product that is made like KerdiFix costs the same or more, depending on where you buy it. Why not just buy the 'real' stuff you know will work long-term?

I've used the Sika from Homer in a pinch a number of times, but there's definitely a longer dry time.

For the most part, I decided it's best just to stick with the real deal. I try to keep a tube with me at all times to try to avoid being in a pinch.

Is this stuff the same ? Says PolyEurathane. I've used it and it does take a while to dry out.

Poor man's Kerdi Fix, gray. It's a couple of bucks cheaper than white.

If you want something that is close to KerdiFix from Sika http://usa.sika.com/dms/getdocument....us-6.11.12.pdf It costs about the same or more than KerdiFix, but the performance specs are similar in strength, cure time, etc. KerdiFix has ZERO VOC's, which can be an important consideration...this stuff is low, but not zero..

So 100% silicone is recommended by schluter as a kerdi fix replacement. Will that work to bond kerdi strip to bathtub seam and ditra at floor.
