Sika Tiling Systemfor Porcelain Tiles

PORCELAIN TILES

Porcelain tiles are a highly durable type of ceramic tile, as they are produced under higher pressure and temperature to be extremely hard and non-absorbent. Therefore they are a typical choice for floors in public and commercial areas that are subject to heavy traffic such as those in airports, train stations, shopping centers and other showrooms. For these areas and exposure conditions it is necessary to use a tile installation system that is able to meet these requirements and accommodate the high stresses imposed on the floor.

This means providing a substrate with high compressive and tensile strengths, with a new generation of polymer modified tile adhesive designed for bonding non-absorbent materials; and finishing the system with a flexible tile grout that has a good mechanical strength and abrasion resistance, followed by a high performance polyurethane based elastic sealant for any moving or connections joints.
