New Norcros Rock-tite Enables Seamless External Tiling With Porcelain Or Stone

Norcros Adhesives is launching a new 3-part system for fixing increasingly-popular 20mm external porcelain and stone tiles, called Norcros Rock-Tite Exterior Porcelain & Stone System.

The Rock-Tite system comprises a Primer, a Mortar and a Brush-In Grout. It is straightforward for landscapers, self-builders and tile fixers to use, capitalising on a key trend in tiling currently. This is where internal tiled space is being extended to terrace or patio areas outside a building, enabling the homeowner to enhance living areas and make better use of external space.

Traditionally these external areas might be covered with concrete pavers, which can be ugly, or timber decking, which can look tired quite quickly.

The latest 20mm porcelain and stone tiles however bring a number of advantages. They are moisture, rot and frost resistant, resistant to UV rays and are easier to clean than timber decking. The Norcros Adhesives system is designed to be easy to use by those who may have limited experience or access to guidance about working with tiles.

It comprises firstly Norcros Rock-Tite Porcelain Primer, which is supplied in three 5kg bags, complete with a 15kg mixing bucket. It is a fibre-reinforced, polymer-modified, cement-based primer, designed to improve adhesion when used with porcelain and stone pavers.

Secondly there is high strength fibre-reinforced Norcros Rock-Tite Mortar, which is supplied in a 25kg bag and simply requires the addition of water.

Finally the system includes a ready-to-use Brush-In Grout, which comes in three 5kg bags supplied in a 15kg bucket. It is air-curing and matches other grouts from Norcros Adhesives. The grout colours available are Blanched Almond, Steel Grey and Tropical Ebony.

Like all products from Norcros Adhesives, the new system benefits from a lifetime guarantee.
