TILING ONFACADES

TILING ON FACADES

Installing tiles on building facades has long been considered as challenging and risky work. However, Sika has developed flexible tile adhesives and grouts that are capable of withstanding exposure to these demanding requirements, including accommodating the extreme weather conditions and the thermal movement of different facade materials.

Sika’s cementitious tile adhesive for external facade tiling has a high polymer content to ensure accommodation of the thermal movement due to the wide and rapid temperature variations. Sika’s special cement based tile grout for facades also has considerable flexibility, abrasion resistance and high mechanical strengths. Finally, the joints and perimeter terminations are sealed with a high performance, elastic polyurethane based sealant, which is designed for joints that must accommodate high movement and also maintain good aesthetic appearance.
