FIXING TILES IN SWIMMING POOLS

 
ADVICES PREPARATION APPLICATION FINISHING

How to deal with chemical aggressions, chlorinated, thermal, saline or acid water, pressurised water jets, wave movement, etc.?

 

PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SWIMMING POOLS

AQUATIC THALASSOTHERAPY CENTRES

 

Risks to avoid:

- Fissuration of tiles subject to water pressures or counter pressures when the swimming pool is empty.

- Disbondment of tiles if the adhesive mortar used does not have the requisite adhesion properties.

- Degradation of the joints due to chlorine and maintenance products.

 

Recommendations :

• Use frost proof tiles for exterior swimming pools.

• To ensure good water proofing, use CERMIPROOF with high flexibility components.

• For the jointing, use cement based or epoxy products: CERMIJOINT TX - EPOGLASS - EPOSOL - CERMIJOINT HRC resistant to chemical aggressions.

• Wait 7 days after jointing before bringing into contact with water.


SUITABLE SUBSTRATES: cement based, concrete or cement mortar.

• water proof, stable substrates.

• Water proofing: bulk water proofing only. Special substrates: polyester shells and resin, stainless steel partitions, etc. Please consult us.

 

BEFORE APPLICATION :

• Substrate drying and ageing times: Concrete: 3 months. Cement based finishing coats and screeds: 1 month.

• Condition of the substrate: clean and dry, dust free. Clean the concrete with a high pressure water jet or by sanding.

• Water proofing of basins: use CERMIPROOF two component under tile liquid damp proof protection system (SEL), which ensures water proofing and reinforces that of the existing concrete lining.


APPLICATION:

• Double spreading obligatory (apply a thin layer of adhesive onto the back of the tile with the appropriate notched trowel for the type of tiling).

• Allow for sufficient inter-tile joints of 3 to 10 mm.

• Paper backed tiles: after removing the paper, leave to dry 24 h before doing the jointing. In all applications of CERMIPLUS, CERMIFLEX can be used at the normal mixing rate

(Please consult us for under tile liquid damp proof protection systems (SEL) and for swimming pools with electrolytic systems)


Adapt the jointing mortars according to the more or less aggressive character of the water and the frequency of cleaning (acids), for example :

a) normal water: CERMIJOINT, CERMIJOINT TX (+ recommended variant: admixing with CERMILATEX resin), CERMIJOINT HRC

b) sea water, thermal water or aggressive water, water 33-38°C, frequent acid cleaning, public baths: EPOGLASS - EPOSOL (on floors) specially recommended.
