The Quality Assurance Coordinator of the Eliane, Anderson Patrick, had a chat with Jéssica Moura, manager of the mortar and grout line at Ligamax, to talk about the main doubts when choosing the ceramic tile x mortar x grout.
The choice of ceramic tiles is a very dreamed moment, people want an environment with aesthetic perfection and no headaches during construction. For this, as important as choosing flooring, is the choice of mortar, the grout and also the laying professional. This package will guarantee the perfect result, with beauty, safety and durability.
Among the main doubts, is the laying of large formats. This trend is here to stay, are less together, more sense of spaciousness and continuity and its application possibilities are innumerable: bedrooms, island, Kitchens, countertops and even furniture.
But, to guarantee the beauty of this coating it is necessary to choose the ideal mortar and, always perform the double bonding process, that is, apply the mortar to the base of the building and the back of the coating. When we talk about large formats, most settlement professionals indicate ACIII, Yes it is, this is the mortar indicated. But, for each type of coating there are attributes that differentiate an ACIII from another ACIII, and with large formats it is no different.
To better understand the dynamics of adhesive mortars, classifications are established by the NBR mortar standard 14081 according to its resistance to adherence and the three healing factors: common cure, by greenhouse or submerged. It is this technical standard that determines the minimum requirements to classify a mortar as ACI, ACII or ACIII.
Other common doubts in the market refer to the laying on drywall (plasterboards that serve as walls / partitions) and about the direct laying on concrete blocks. For these situations the recommendation is the same. Follow the patterns of choice according to the coating and the location chosen for application and make the double layer in the bonding. The drywall still has a weight limitation per m², so the choice of a high performance mortar is necessary.
On the floor on the floor the alert is for the old base to be in good condition, with the old floor fully adhered to the substrate. After this check, the mortar indicated is the specific type of floor on floor, with the double layer process. This is an intelligent solution for reforms that seek aesthetic changes and space modernization. There is also the possibility to apply the wall covering on the wall, following the same recommendations.
And finally, that tip for this leisure space so desired in summer: the pools. This is an area with strict conditions of use and conservation. Besides that, the structure tends to have movement and pressure and still, chemical components in water treatment. Therefore, high performance, adherent mortar is required. Another key point for a perfect and durable pool is the choice of grout. The recommendation is the epoxy grout, since he is 100% waterproof and will guarantee durability, pool safety and ease of cleaning. Its cost tends to be higher than cementitious, but investment is the best option in the long run, because cementitious grouts are porous, absorb water from the pool and over time compromise the entire system, which can cause the coating to peel off and other types of problems.
These tips will guarantee the beauty and durability of any space. Therefore, always follow the recommendations of ceramic tile manufacturers, mortars and grouts and enjoy good times in your brand new or revitalized environment.
