Mapei has launched a new training video for Ultralite adhesive. The video shows the step-by-step installation technique for installing large format tiles on to a wall and floor space. The range of Ultralite adhesives are one-component, high-performance, high yield, flexible and lightweight. Jason Brunt, Mapei’s Product Manager for Ceramic products commented “At Mapei we understand the reluctance for the installer in fixing these materials, but with good practices and the right adhesive we should all embrace advancement and change. ” With no vertical slip, a long pot life and a long open time, very low VOCs and up to 80 per cent higher yield than standard adhesives, Ultralite adhesives have been specified for a range of commercial and residential projects. As shown in the video, the adhesive is easy to apply by trowel for installation of ceramic, stone and thin porcelain. Bill Harrison, Senior Technical Advisor for Ceramics at Mapei commented: “We at Mapei are very aware of the greater technical expertise required in fixing such large format, thin porcelain tiles. We are therefore proud to provide the necessary Ultralite products to enable the fixer to overcome any installation issues and have confidence in what they are being asked to achieve.” View the video now @MapeiUKLtd social media.

0121 508 6970 X-Wood cladding creates superb refurbishment

Freefoam Building Products are proud to release a new case study featuring the PVC foiled X-Wood cladding range. This beautiful property in rural Leicestershire originally featured white wood windows and a wood clad annex. The present homeowners decided to update the windows and refurbish the annex area to create an easy to maintain, long lasting facade that met the same high standards as their home. After receiving samples of several colour options the Anthracite Grey finish was selected to tone in with the brick work and roof. It’s easy wipe clean surface and high quality performance qualities matched the homeowner’s selection criteria exactly. The X-Wood cladding range is an innovative PVC-U exterior cladding that looks and handles like wood but without all the usual maintenance issues associated with timber with a subtle woodgrain finish designed to bring a refreshing new look to the exterior of any refurbishment or new build project. Freefoam have used their manufacturing expertise to design and produce an attractive high performance cladding comprised of three different layers – a heavy duty through coloured plastic foam core, covered with a durable plastic skin and then coated with market leading Renolit film which creates a hard wearing, stable material with a beautiful subtle woodgrain effect finish.
