Norcros Rock-Tite Exterior Porcelain & Stone System is a 3-part range comprising a primer, a mortar and a brush-in grout, designed for use by landscapers and garden designers, as well as tile fixers.
The system is aimed to capitalise on a key trend in the tiling market, which sees internal tiled space extended to terrace or patio areas outside a building. This is seen as part of a long-term lifestyle trend to enhance living areas by making better use of external space.
The Part 2a Rock-Tite Mortar Additive is a fibre-reinforced cement mortar mix, which mixes with sharp sand to provide a mortar for bonding concrete, natural stone and porcelain paving slabs to a hardcore or solid base. It contains Rock-Tite additives designed to improve performance, workability and freeze/thaw resistance of the finished mortar mix. The system allows customers to purchase sand separately if they wish.
The Rock-Tite system has been developed to overcome the issue that porcelain tiles are regularly installed by builders or landscapers, who may lack experience or access to guidance about working with tiles. It’s designed to be simple to use for anyone who wants to create a seamless transition from internal to external living space in and around the home.
The system includes the Rock-Tite Porcelain Primer in three 5kg bags, supplied in a 15kg mixing bucket. Part 2a is supplied in a 12.5kg bag, while the original Part 2 comes in a 25kg bag. Finally, the system also includes a ready-to-use Brush-In Grout, in three 5kg bags supplied in a 15kg bucket. The grout colours available are Blanched Almond, Steel Grey and Tropical Ebony, matching other grouts from the company.
All elements of the Rock-Tite system are covered by the Norcros Adhesives lifetime guarantee. g
