UltraTileFix excels at Mercedes-Benz showroom

March 2019

Great Northern Tiling Company (GNTC), have used UltraTileFix to install over 3,000 sq. metres of wall and floor tiling at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom in Birmingham.

With a market share of 7.12%, and selling 5,000 more cars than any other premium car manufacturer, it is unsurprising that Mercedes-Benz has become synonymous with luxurious, top quality cars.

The Central Birmingham Mercedes-Benz car showroom required new wall and floor tiling throughout the branch in order to retain these high standards.

GNTC, TTA members and skilled tiling contractors with almost 20 years’ experience in the commercial sector, secured this exciting project and used UltraTileFix materials to complete the job.

Before any floor tiling could commence, GNTC needed to prepare the substrate by priming the entire area with ProPrimer, an advanced polymer primer designed for both porous and non-porous substrates.

ProPrimer enhances the adhesion of all UltraTileFix floor levellers and is proven to reduce substrate porosity.

Once ProPrimer had been applied and fully dried, GNTC used ProLevel Fibre reinforced flexible floor leveller to create a strong, sound, and even base, ready for tiling to commence.  A single part, high strength, rapid drying and curing concrete floor leveller, ProLevel Fibre boasts a three-hour set time and can be tiled after just eight hours, important for projects where downtime needs to be kept to a minimum, such as this one.

ProLevel Fibre has been formulated using FibreBond Technology, which involves the addition of fibre particles for superior strength, creating the ideal substrate to support the weight of the cars on display in the showroom.

Completing the project, GNTC used ProFlex SP and ProFlex SPES adhesives to fix 2,621 sq. metres of floor tiles and 400 sq. metres of wall tiles in the showroom.
ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive and ProFlex SPES standard set flexible tile adhesive are both classified as S1 in accordance with EN 12004 and have a high level of deformation for greater tolerance to movement.  The S1 properties of ProFlex SP and ProFlex SPES make them the perfect choice for timber floors, swimming pools, and underfloor heating systems.

Every product available from UltraTileFix boasts a lifetime guarantee.
