TILING IN AND AROUNDSWIMMING POOLS

TILING IN AND AROUND SWIMMING POOLS

The installation of tiles in and around swimming pools has always been a critical application and Sika has extensive expertise and experience of providing the ideal solution with a complete system.

Firstly the substrate is prepared, made good and levelled with an appropriate cementitious repair mortar / surface smoothing mortar. Then Sika’s polymer modified, fiber-reinforced, cementitious waterproofing mortar is applied in two layers, which ensures durable, long term waterproofing of the area. A special low modulus and highly flexible, cement based tile adhesive is then used, which is able to withstand thermal shock on the substrate, as well as continuous immersion in an alkaline environment. An epoxy resin based grout with high mechanical and chemical resistance is applied, and finally any moving joints and connections are sealed with a high quality, flexible and chemically resistant, neutral curing silicone joint sealant.
