Successful Installations - Thin Tile on Interior Floors


Thin tile installation is markedly different from standard-body (> 7 mm) porcelain tile methods. Researchers from two major R&D Centers in Italy and the United States have worked on the issue for over a year, testing surface preparation processes, setting materials, trowel selections and use of mechanical edge-leveling systems. The results, based on hundreds of hours of research on numerous variables in the process, have been analyzed and will be presented by Dr. Neil McMurdie during a one-hour webinar 
  • Thin-body porcelain tile can save $ thousands in materials, labor and freight
  • Whether new construction or renovation, large-format thin tile offers innovative design opportunities

Success requires knowing how to avoid breakage during and after installation.

Learn the keys to successful installation of the new thin tiles:
  • Special setting techniques
  • Surface preparation
  • Setting materials
  • Trowel selection
  • Mechanical edge-leveling systems

All attendees receive a copy of “Thin Tile Installation Guidelines
