TILING DRYWALLSIN WET AREAS

TILING DRYWALLS IN WET AREAS

Drywall materials and techniques are quick and easy to work with, which contributes to their growing popularity, even for use in wet areas. However, they are not moisture resistant and therefore require special treatment and protection against the penetration of water in both vapor and liquid form.

Sika provides a full system to fulfill these demanding requirements. Firstly a liquid, elastic waterproofing membrane is applied, with compatible sealing tape to waterproof and seal at any joints, around fittings, penetrations and at all perimeter terminations. Then a flexible dispersion or cementitious tile adhesive with a high polymer content is used for the tile installation. A special highly flexible epoxy tile grout with high mechanical strengths and abrasion resistance is applied in the selected color shade. Finally the system is completed with a high performance, antifungal, elastomeric, movement and connection joint sealant.
