Improved fix makes tiling easy

The newly formulated TAL Mosaicfix is a fine-textured adhesive and grout suitable for ceramic, porcelain, natural stone and glass mosaics, as well as glass tiles up to 100 x 100mm in size.
“The use of mosaic is on the rise and glass tiles in particular are resurging as a popular design trend,” notes Gela Ohl, TAL’s marketing manager. “TAL Mosaicfix is exactly what our customers have been asking for.”

TAL Mosaicfix comes in light grey, ideal for flooring, as well as in super white, intended for shower and splashback walling, or for contrasting and accentuating glass tiles.

Produced at TAL’s ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001 accredited plant, the new formulation is the result of extensive research and development, using quality, locally manufactured products, and tested for local conditions.

How to apply
First, apply the adhesive as normal, then tap the mosaic sheet into place, allowing the adhesive to squeeze through the joints. Wait 20 minutes to allow for an initial set and then add more TAL Mosaicfix to fill the grout joints. Setting takes twelve hours.

When installing glass mosaics or tiles, a flexible adhesive system is needed. TAL BOND or TAL BOND POWDER must be incorporated in the adhesive mix in accordance with the product instructions. It is also important to install tile panel movement joints in both directions at maximum 2m centres, as well as at the interfaces with other finishes.

The TAL Warranty Programme offers a ten-year warranty on any tiling installation, provided the terms are adhered to.
