Mapei products specified for Aston Martin showroom

Mapei products specified for Aston Martin showroom

A range of Mapei products were specified to complete the 700m2 tiling project at the two floor, state of the art Aston Martin facility in Newcastle.

Products specified include Mapei’s Eco Prim Grip which was used to prime the power floated concrete once cleaned. Mapetex, the anti-fracture de-coupling membrane for use under ceramic, porcelain and stone tiled floors, was later installed with Keraquick and Latex Plus over saw cut joints and cracks within the concrete.

In addition, Mapei’s Ultraplan Eco was used to achieve a perfectly smooth, flat and level surface in which to lay the stone tiles. Topcem which is ideal for the formation of screeds allowing traffic after 12 hours and ceramic tiles to be laid after 24 hours, was used to create ‘runners’ and ‘wells’ to pour the leveller into.

Large, Travertine Navona tiles in a honed finish, were specified to tile the luxury car showroom floor, mezzanine and external display areas of the new development. To fix the large format, difficult to install tiles, Granirapid white was utilised, applied in a ‘back buttering’ method to ensure 100% adhesion to the pre-prepped substrate.
