Description

A range of tiles manufactured from a self-compacting, rapid setting, additive modified cementitious mix, selected aggravates and sands. Each tile has high mechanical resistance, low water absorption, frost-resistance, and is lightweight. Can be pre-cast in larger sizes and shapes than standard concrete.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for floor and wall installation, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Large format, ultra-thin tiles with high strength.
  • High mechanical resistance and UV stability.
  • Available in different finishes and colours.
  • Fully recyclable, and manufactured from natural materials.
  • Good thermal conductivity.
  • Available in bespoke sizes and finishes.
  • Provides an alternative to poured, polished concrete.
  • Fast installation.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • CE marked.

Recommended adhesives/ fixings:

  • Mapei Keraquick Flexible adhesive, suitable for application with 10 mm trowel. Installation should be made with a double layer (smooth trowel on the tile and 10 mm notched trowel on the floor).
  • Use Ditra Mat underlay where there is a risk of surface movement, e.g. with the application of new concrete screeds.

Recommended surface protection:

  • Hydrophobic sealer (satin).
  • POLIFAN PU K12 (matt, satin, gloss).

Applications:

Suitable for internal and external use in areas including:

  • Restaurants.
  • Hotels.
