TILING WITH MARBLE, GRANITE & OTHER NATURAL STONE TILES

Natural stone tiles are one of the most timeless and elegant finishing materials that never goes out of style.

Sika provides a complete installation system for marble, granite and other natural stone tiles, which is not sensitive to moisture. Subfloor screeds made with a hydraulic binder that ensures high compressive and tensile strengths, plus rapid hardening with very low shrinkage, thus allowing installation of the tiles after only 24 – 48 hours. For these natural stone materials, the Sika system uses a new generation of flexible, cementitious tile adhesive, with a high polymer content and low modulus that minimizes stress transfer. Finally, flexible, epoxy resin based grouts with high mechanical strengths and abrasion resistance are used, together with permanently elastic high performance non staining sealant for any moving joints and connections.
