Bello Tiles was awarded the tiling contract of this project and requested Mapei’s technical assistance. This project demanded professional waterproofing and tiling finishes and left no room for error which was another reason Mapei was consulted on this project. Soukaro Confort was the soundproofing system installed under the tiles using Ultrabond Eco 170 as the adhesive. After which, Fiberplan was applied as a levelling compound primed with Primer 3296 after fully cured. Then the liquid waterproofing membrane Mapelastic Aquadefense was roller-applied in the wet area. Bello Tiles then installed the tiles using Keraflex Maxi S1 tile adhesive (high performance, deformable adhesive with extended open time, no vertical slip and ideal for installing large format porcelain and natural stone tiles in both internal and external applications). Grouting was extremely important to the final finished appearance, so the selection of Ultracolor Plus premium grout was essential. All joints were sealed with Mapesil AC silicone sealant resulting in a perfect installation system.
