Comparison to clinker tiles

logo_r_pl

Clinker tiles + glue + grout

Weight – approx. 6 kg/1m2

Weight – approx 20 kg/1m2

No efflorescence since the adhesive does not contain lime and cement

Efflorescence that may appear on the tiles and joints

Easy to cut tiles – using a knife or scissors

Need to use an angle grinder or table cutter

No defects/waste when cutting tiles

Slashes / debris appearing during tile cutting

No additional grouting (with this material the glue is a fugue)

Need to return to work after a few days to make joints

No need to move the scaffolding (for large investments) to make joints (save time!)

The necessity to move the scaffold to the place where the fugue wasn’t made

No height restrictions

Height restrictions due to the weight of the clinker

No keying (do not stand on the corners – because the elasticity of the tile allows it to be pressed all the surface to the wall)

Key (stand at the corners – it is visible either in the curves of the walls or the curves of the tiles when we look at the wall from the side

They cushion the impact

In the event of an impact break

Stained in the mass – in the case of defect or spotting, the plate does not change color

Often stained only on the surface

We do not have to use dilation

Necessity of dilatation

You do not have to pinch polystyrene in case the tiles are to be laid on the insulation

We need to use more plugs for styrofoam

Their flexibility makes it possible to cover the columns and round surfaces

Problem with the placement on columns. And it certainly is a lot more work.

No rigid corner tiles. The tiles on the corners are folded or cut and joined together, and the resulting gap is complemented by the mass that is added for free

Separate corner tiles (often much more expensive) or need to grind the tiles at the corner contact (again laborious and takes time)
