UltraTileFix - Flooring and tiling adhesives
THE Great Northern Tiling Company (GNTC) has used several products from UltraTileFix’s range of adhesives and grouts to install wall-and-floor tiling at Miller & Carter’s latest restaurant.
Famed for its delicious food and unique buildings, Miller & Carter is reportedly fast becoming the nation’s favourite steakhouse. In January 2019, work began on Miller & Carter’s latest restaurant, located in Banbury, Oxfordshire, with tiling completed by contractor and TTA member, The GNTC.
GNTC has been using UltraTileFix materials to complete various tiling installations for several years and this project was no different. Before tiling could commence, GNTC needed to prepare the substrate by priming the entire area with ProPrimer, ‘an advanced polymer primer for exceptional bond and multiple substrates’.
Designed for porous and non-porous substrates, ProPrimer is said to enhance adhesion and is proven, it’s said, to reduce substrate porosity.
Once ProPrimer had been applied and fully dried, GNTC used ProFlex SP in Grey and ProFlex SPES tile adhesives to fix 46sq m of floor tiles, 57sq m of wall tiling and 6sq m of brick slips.
ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive and ProFlex SPES standard set flexible tile adhesive are reportedly classified as S1 in accordance with EN 12004 and are said to have a high level of deformation for greater tolerance to movement.
The S1 properties of ProFlex SP and ProFlex SPES make them the suitable choice for timber floors, swimming pools and underfloor heating systems, says the company.
‘Completing the project, GNTC used ProGrout Flexible in White and Grey to grout the chosen floor and wall tiles. Designed for areas where movement or vibration is likely, ProGrout Flexible is suitable for joint widths up to 20mm, is suitable for use with all tile types and can be washed down easily with minimal effort.’
The company continues: ‘Available in 12 beautiful tones, ProGrout Flexible is mould-resistant, boasts a 30-60 minute pot-life and will hard set in just 12 hours. What’s more, ProGrout Flexible has been developed using ColourShield Technology – a process which involves the addition of a specialist additive for lasting colour protection.
‘ProGrout Flexible, along with every other product available from UltraTileFix boasts a lifetime guarantee, giving you complete confidence that UltraTileFix products are designed to last.’
