Sika Tiling Systemfor Swimming Pools


The installation of tiles in swimming pools has always been considered a critical application and Sika has extensive expertise and experience in this area. First the substrate is repaired and levelled with an appropriate cementitious repair mortar and surface smoothing mortar. Sika then provides a two-component, polymer modified, thixotropic, cementitious waterproofing mortar in two layers, which ensures that durable, long term waterproofing is achieved. A low modulus and highly flexible cement based tile adhesive is then used that is able to withstand thermal shock on the substrate, as well as continuous immersion in an alkaline environment.

For the tile grouting there is the option of a colored, waterproof and flexible cementitious grout, which is mixed with a special latex to further increase the mechanical strength, abrasion resistance and impermeability. Finally any moving joints and connections are sealed with a high quality, flexible and chemically resistant, neutral curing silicone joint sealant.
