TILINGNEW BALCONIES

TILING NEW BALCONIES

The Sika installation system starts with the liquid applied waterproofing layer. Then the special cementitious tile adhesive is applied, which is specially designed for use on fully exposed balconies that are subject to extreme weather conditions. This is flexible, with a high polymer content to accommodate movement due to both wide and rapid temperature variations. The cement based tile grout is also flexible with a low modulus of elasticity, in order to minimize stress transfer to the substrate, whilst retaining good mechanical strengths and abrasion resistance. A high performance, elastic sealant is used to seal any moving joints or connections and ensure that they also remain watertight.
