Sika Tiling Systemfor New Balconies

NEW BALCONIES

The construction and installation of tiled finishes on new balconies requires careful design and workmanship to prevent common problems such as uneven floor slabs, inadequate dewatering and drainage, inadequate waterproofing – especially at details such as joints and penetrations – or the inability to accommodate rapid temperature changes and thermal movement in the materials.

Sika use a screed made with a hydraulic binder, to ensure a level surface with high strengths rapid hardening and zero shrinkage. The waterproofing layer, made with a flexible, polymer modified, cementitious mortar, can be applied just 24–48 hours after the screed is finished. The cementitious tile adhesives for use on fully exposed balconies subject to extreme weather conditions are flexible and have a high polymer content, which allows them to accommodate movement due to wide and rapid temperature variations. The cementitious tile grouts for external use are also flexible, with low modulus of elasticity and good mechanical strength, including abrasion resistance. These properties are increased by mixing the grout with a special latex. A high performance, one-component, elastic polyurethane sealant is used to seal any moving joints or connections and ensure they also remain watertight.
