Sika, a global manufacturer of specialty industrial chemicals, brought its SikaTile product line of tile setting materials to Total Solutions Plus November 6-8, 2022, in Indian Wells, California, where suppliers and distributors came to learn about premier tiling technologies.

Capping off the conference was the manufacturer table top exhibit, where the Sika team helped attendees identify the correct SikaTile product for their businesses’ needs, including SikaTile products for setting gauged porcelain tile panels and slabs (GPTP/S). Attendees learned the features of and differences between SikaTile-450 LHT Secure Set, SikaTile-475 LHT Premium Set and SikaTile-500 LHT Lite for GPTP/S and large and heavy tile installations.

“The interest in GPTP/S solutions is at an all-time high,” said Sika Senior Product Manager Tom Carroll.  “The demand for porcelain panel installations is huge right now, and many of the visitors to our booth wanted to stay ahead of the competition by providing high-performance LHT mortars to their customers. At Sika, we have more than 100 years at the forefront of building material technology, so we were ready with any tiling solution these visitors needed.”
