ROCATEX says with the professional tiler’s requirements at the heart of everything it does, it’s developed a strong reputation for producing tiling products of the very highest quality.
This approach is best highlighted, it says, across its range of ‘Ultimate’ products, which Andy Gough, sales director, explains is a result of many hours’ work in the lab with some of the world’s leading chemists.
‘We’ve always wanted to create a full tiling system, from preparation to finishing, which represents the very best our industry has to offer. Here at Rocatex we have access to some of the world’s leading chemists, each of whom have specialist fields.
‘For example, our Ultimate Grout was the first to use recycled glass in place of sand. The chemists also introduced a water repellent polymer which helps hugely with colour consistency and overall performance in wet areas. It was also the first grout to use micro-fibres which allows it to be used in joint widths from 1mm to 20mm. None of this would have been possible without a team of specialist chemists who spend every day developing and formulating world class cement products.’
He goes on to say: ‘But if you then take our Ultimate Silicone, with the greatest respect to the cement chemists, this needed to be created by silicone specialists, not cement specialists. So, for this product we commissioned a leading German laboratory to create what we believe is the best silicone in the UK tiling market.
‘It has no acetoxy fillers, it is 100% pure silicone with superb adhesion. It has 50% movement capability, can be used internally and externally, has a matt finish and is colour matched to all 15 of our grout colours.’
The Rocatex ‘Ultimate’ range also includes primer, levelling compound, water-based sealer and two S2 adhesives.
The company concludes: ‘Available in white as slow or rapid set, very high levels of polymer and improved strength make these adhesives suitable for use on even the most problematic substrates. From green screeds and chipboard to steam rooms, swimming pools and shopping centres, they offer today’s professional tiler complete peace of mind.’
