TILING WITHPORCELAIN STONEWARE

TILING WITH PORCELAIN STONEWARE

Porcelain tiles are highly durable ceramic tiles, as they are produced under higher pressures and temperatures to be extremely hard and non-absorbent. Therefore they are frequently selected by demanding project owners who value performance and reliability.

For these areas and exposure conditions it is necessary to use a tile installation system that is also able to meet these requirements and accommodate the high stresses. This means providing a suitable substrate with high compressive and tensile strengths. Sika installation systems achieve this with a new generation of polymer modified tile adhesives that are specifically designed for bonding non-absorbent materials.

Then finishing is with a flexible tile grout that also has a good mechanical strengths and high abrasion resistance. A high performance polyurethane based elastic sealant is used for any movement, isolation or connection joints that must be brought through the system.
