New formula Ultra Tile FlexJoint is molto bene!

New Italian restaurants Zizzi and Pizza Express have opened with tiled interiors completed using Ultra Tile adhesives and grouts

Northumbrian Tiling contractors were commissioned to complete the tiling contracts in both restaurants.  Their experienced team of fixers used Ultra Tile ProStick BS with the restaurants’ ceramic wall tiles.  Ultra Tile ProRapid RS secured the porcelain floor tiles and all tiling was grouted using the new formula Ultra Tile FlexJoint in grey.

Regular users of Ultra Tile, Northumbrian Tiling are familiar with the brand’s consistent, high performing products - the brand is always their first choice.  On these two projects the new and improved FlexJoint was used.  Designed with the trade for the trade the product now boasts the following capabilities:

·         Improved super fine texture
·         Polymer modified for ultimate flexibility
·         Totally mould resistant
·         Perfectly water repellent
·         Suitable for use with under floor heating
·         For joint widths from 1-20mm

Northumbrian Tiling was instantly impressed with the new grout stating that: “…it was exceptionally good, excellent to work with, added to the ease of completion.” Molto bene!

To fix the ceramic wall tiles, ready mixed ProStick BS was chosen.  Ideal for ceramic and mosaic tiles the paste boasts self-priming and non-slip properties together with anti-fungal and mould resistant technology for intermittently wet areas.  Tub sizes 15kg, 7.5kg and 3.75kg are available avoiding unnecessary waste and costs.

Expertly formulated with exceptional bond strength, flexibility and fast setting capabilities, ProRapid RS is ideal for porcelain and natural stone applications.  The adhesive was used by Northumbrian Tiling to fix the floor tiles in both restaurants.

ProRapid RS can be applied at a bed thickness of between 3-12mm on walls or floors.  Its open time is 40 minutes and it will be set after just 2 hours drying time.

High polymer content increases the product’s flexibility and ensures its compatibility with under floor heating systems. 

Ultra Tile ProRapid RS conforms to the requirements of EN 12004 Class C2FT and is available in 20kg grey or white.

The restaurants are now open to the public in Hull and Lincoln.
