Sheeting systems are often used when applying mosaic to floors and walls. The common method employed by most manufacturers is to glue a fibre mesh to the underside of the tile.
Our system uses a face mounted adhesive film with excellent strength characteristics. This film is strong enough to hold the tiles in place for transit and installation, yet is designed to release after installation without leaving adhesive residue on the tiles.
Why use sheeted tiles?
1.The film is very hard to tear or stretch but can be easily cut with a craft knife for minor adjustments.
2. Transparent film allows the installer to view the design. The adhesive is water resistant, so no adhesion is lost due to accidental exposure to water.
3.The film is mounted on the face of the tiles allowing 100% contact of the back of the tile to the mortar and protects the grout lines from dirt etc during the installation.
4.Full contact with the face of the tile means it has self levelling properties, eliminating minor discrepancies in tile thickness.
5.Ensures accurate alignment, minimal grout lines resulting in a crisp clean finish (approx 1-1.5mm grout lines).
6.When the tiles have been fixed and set, the clear film is simply peeled off, leaving no residue on the surface of the tile.
7. Sheets are easily stored and trasported. We label all our boxes with the appropriate contents.
8. Sheet position diagrams detail a precise layout for the installer to follow.
9.These sheets are not available anywhere else, as this service is exclusive to our company. We have been restoring and installing Victorian tiles for over 10 years and have developed this system to speed up installation and ensure accuracy. In our time we have seen many poor installations by inexperienced tilers. This is largely due to the requirement of laying such designs tile by tile.
TILE SPECIFICATIONS: Full vitrification of these tiles ensures longevity. This modern tile is durable, resistant, and easily maintained. They are resistant to scratches from foot traffic and machinery passing over them. The tiles will maintain their original colour for many years as the colour is solid throughout the body. With a very low porosity they can be used in all conditions, inside and out, on floors or walls and are equally suitable for dry and humid atmospheres. These tiles conform to the NFP 61-405 standards (class B1 of the European EN176 standards) They comply with classifications U4,P4, E3 and C2.
