TILING FORWET ROOMS

WET ROOMS

The most important thing for wet room projects is to ensure that the area is waterproof to prevent ingress and subsequent water damage, deterioration and microbiological growth within the building fabric.

Sika provides a complete integrated system to fulfill the very demanding requirements of these areas. Firstly the surfaces are made waterproof using a one-component cementitious mortar, which is highly flexible and fiber-reinforced. Then a flexible cementitious adhesive with a high polymer content is used for the tile installation, which is followed by a special highly deformable, waterproof, two- component, epoxy tile grout. This is designed to provide high chemical and abrasion resistance in the selected color shade. Finally, the system is completed with a high performance, antifungal, movement and connection joint sealant.
