MAPEI's McMurdie to discuss thin tile in June 13 webinar
Thin tile installation is markedly different from standard-body (greater than 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. McMurdie.
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, including: Special setting techniques, Surface preparation, Setting materials, Trowel selection, and Mechanical edge-leveling systems.
All attendees will receive a copy of “Thin Tile Installation Guidelines.”
