TILE FIXING SYSTEMS
The right tiling can transform your home
The range of tile offered in the market today are endless and will only continue to increase. Tile options range from ceramic , vitrified, glass mosaics, natural stones like marble and granite. The options in terms of sizes are also increasing and larger format tiles are also becoming popular.
The present penetration of tile adhesives in the market is limited to less than 10% today and BPS is of the view that this will increase exponentially in the years ahead. With this in mind, we have the following solutions developed
The present issues with the conventional system are listed below.
INCONVENIENCE TO WORK WITH
•Sourcing of huge quantity of cement
•Tiles and substrate to be saturated a day before tiling
TIME CONSUMING & LABOUR INTENSIVE
•To lay tiles with sand-cement traditional way is to apply the mixture of sand-cement in a lump on tiles' back so it has to be done with one tile at a time.
•Low adjustability to tiles as cement has a very low pot life
•Poor bonding strength leads to debonding of tiles hence damaging the aesthetics.
•Low pot life leads to material wastage since the mix dries faster than the application
In order to overcome these obstacles, we propose the following solutions - Tile Underlay Systems
BASF has developed tile underlay systems that can be laid on the mother lab to have a surface ready to receive the tile adhesive.
The two products are Master Top 518 and Master Top 528
Master Top 518
Features & Benefits
Master Top 528
Features & Benefits
The tile adhesive systems range of products can be used on all varieties of tiles and natural stones.
Master Tile 25
Master Tile 30/35
Master Tile 400/500
Master Tile FLX 424 / 524
Master Tile 250
Usage of the above systems would result in the following benefits
EASE OF USAGE
•Minimal substrate preparation required
•Tiles don’t need to be soaked, just unbox and lay.
FASTER COMPLETION OF WORK
•The entire bag of 25kg can be mixed at once
•High open time makes adjustability easy
•Full contact of the adhesive on the tile provides strong adhesion
•Varied applications such as glass mosaics, large-size to lay tiles on polished substrates, on dry wall system, on existing tiles etc.
The above solutions are supported by a wide range of tile grouts.
