Tiling solution to create a waterproof oasis

The average cost of tiling is around $100 per square metre,” said Evan Conroy, Sika Ceramic Tiling business development manager.  “It makes sense to invest in the best tiling adhesion and preparation system to help avoid costly water damage to property and ensure there is no need for remedial work down the track.”

Designed as a complete solution that is easy to apply, the Sika® Ceram range includes surface preparation products, sealants, adhesives and grouts.  It is formulated to address key waterproof performance and tiling quality requirements.

Sika Ceram tile adhesives and grouts can be tailored to whatever the tiling task – from walls and floors to splashbacks, swimming pools and balconies. Engineered for compatibility, Sika Ceram primers and self-levelling compounds work together with Sika waterproofing membranes as part of the complete system, to form a solid foundation for wet area tiling.

While adhesion and waterproofing are key elements to a tiling job, ultimately it is the final look of the room that will add value to a home. Sika Ceram coloured grouts, in a range of six colours, offer a high quality cement-based solution and are compatible with most types of tile. Available in handy 2.5 kg and 10kg bags, the grouts feature anti-fungal and hydrophobic qualities with low VOC emissions.

Sika’s selection of polyurethane and natural cure silicones and sealants, including the trade favourite Sikaflex®, are the final touch to seal joints and around fixtures to ensure a completely watertight wet area.

The Sika® Ceram product range comes with a 12 year product warranty when used in combination.  The products are available from selected retailers nationally.
