Official UltraTile stockist, Tubs & Tiles supplied materials from the range for a bathroom project secured by H&R Installations in Walsall.
H&R Installations have recently completed a luxury steam and shower room using Prime IT FP, ProFlex SP and FlexJoint. All materials, tiles and fittings were purchased from their local stockist Tubs & Tiles in Walsall.
The job covered 36m² and included granite surfaces, a 2m wide encased mirror and tiling the ceiling of the steam room. All of which added their own little challenges, but with the expertise of H&R Installations and the performance quality from UltraTile materials the project was finished with ease.
The client was upgrading to a luxury, high-end spec bathroom and chose alpine sand porcelain tiles measuring 60mm x 40mm. Perfectly suited to porcelain tiles, ProFlex SP provided the high strength, excellent bond and rapid setting properties required for the installation.
The adhesive’s performance is rapid setting for faster completion, and it accommodates movement due to the product’s S1 classification. ProFlex SP is ideal for use with low-absorbency tiles and has exceptional water resistance, making it suitable for use in wet areas and swimming pools.
UltraTile Prime IT FP was also used to stabilise background substrates, reducing their porosity, and as an additive that will enhance adhesive performance.
The tile installations were grouted using UltraTile’s best selling grout, FlexJoint. FlexJoint has been specifically formulated and polymer modified for tiles with joint widths of up to 20mm, and for most tile types and applications.
It has excellent joint filling properties and a super fine texture, allowing for joints to be filled in one simple application making it an ideal choice for fixers, and providing a smooth, non-coarse finish. The product has an efflorescence-free formulation for consistency of colour and is mould resistant and water repellent for a durable hygienic finish.
The retailer and contractor were both very pleased with the service received and product performance offered by UltraTile, and the client is delighted with his new bathroom.
