TILING DRYWALLS IN DRY AREAS

Drywall construction techniques and materials are the most widely used system to form the walls and ceilings in medical, hospitality, educational and urban housing developments today.

Sika provides a full system for the secure installation of tiles on these substrates. Firstly a primer is applied to seal the surface and prevent any gypsum contact with cement; then flexible dispersion on vertical application and cementitious tile adhesives with a high polymer content on horizontal application; followed by a two-component waterproof epoxy tile grout with high mechanical and chemical resistance. Finally the system is completed with a high performance, antifungal, elastomeric movement and connection joint sealant.
