Tiling adhesives in Sandton City refurbishment

TAL-adhesives-Sandton-City-refurbishmentTAL is proud to be associated with the prestigious Sandton City refurbishment project, which includes the upgrading of the floors and walkways as well as extensions to a new mall area. Tiling started in August 2009, with TAL supplying the adhesive specifications for various tile installations. TAL products are being used exclusively for the fitting of the porcelain tiles on the floors and on the wooden columns in the mall walkways, as well as the porcelain tiles to walls and floors in the bathrooms. In addition, TAL supplied the repair, levelling and screeding compounds for remedial work to the substrate, prior to tiling.

Specialist, good quality, high strength, rapid setting adhesives were essential for the laying of the imported porcelain tiles that are being used throughout the shopping centre. In suspended areas of the mall a latex additive was used in the adhesive and grout to allow for building movement.

The refurbishment of the mall walkways covers an area of about 80 000m² and the new extension to the mall will establish an area of a further 30 000m². TAL will issue a 10-year warranty on the tile installations on completion of the tiling.

With a proven track record of over 35 years in the industry and over 280 million square metres of tiles successfully fixed with TAL adhesives, TAL is a market leader in quality, service and technology. “We are the key supplier to major tiling installations around the country and our products are readily accepted by architects, specifiers and contractors,” says Marius Botha, inland sales manager at TAL.

TAL, a division of Norcros SA, offers a range of effective tiling products suitable for any tiling application.
