Installation of porcelain tiles

Feinsteinzeug

Porcelain tiles are designated as tiles with water absorption ≤ 0.5%. This concerns a dry pressed fully vitrified material with an extremely high density. These properties impart frost resistance and high abrasion resistance and tensile strength. For these reasons they can be installed in heavy duty areas with intense use.
To install porcelain tiles, polymer modified adhesives are needed in order to produce an optimum bond to the very dense surface of the tile. For grouting porcelain tiles, grouts with accelerated setting are suitable as the joint edges offer no depot effect, where water once given up can be retrieved during the time of hydration.
