Successful Installations - Thin Tile on Interior Floors


Thin tile installation is markedly different from standard-body (> 7 mm) porcelain tile methods. Researchers from two major R&D Centers in Italy and the United States have worked on the issue for over a year, testing surface preparation processes, setting materials, trowel selections and use of mechanical edge-leveling systems. The results, based on hundreds of hours of research on numerous variables in the process, have been analyzed and will be presented by Dr. Neil McMurdie during a one-hour webinar
  • Thin-body porcelain tile can save $ thousands in materials, labor and freight
  • Whether new construction or renovation, large-format thin tile offers innovative design opportunities

     

Success requires knowing how to avoid breakage during and after installation.

Learn the keys to successful installation of the new thin tiles:
  • Special setting techniques
  • Surface preparation
  • Setting materials
  • Trowel selection
  • Mechanical edge-leveling systems

All attendees receive a copy of “Thin Tile Installation Guidelines

2013 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition winners

This year, the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition, an annual awards program sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Commission, attracted the most competitive pool of projects in the contest's history. The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
