Fully Vitrified Tile Flooring Systems are durable, hygienic floor and wall finishes designed for the most demanding food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing environments. Available in a striking array of colors, impervious fully vitrified tiles feature a choice of integrally molded slip-resistant surface textures in either traditional rectangle or contemporary hexagon format. A complementary range of coordinating tile accessories chemically resistant adhesive and grout expansion joint materials completes the system.
Our fully vitrified tiles feature discrete, half-height spacers that touch when the tiles are butted together. In addition to producing consistently narrow 2mm (1/16”) side joints, the spacers enable vibration setting when service conditions favour the use of compatible grouts. When properly executed, vibration setting speeds installation and enhances impact resistance by:
1. Maximising contact between the bonding surfaces of the tile, adhesive and substrate.
2. Minimizing voids under the tiles that can lead to flexural cracking under loads.
3. Levelling adjacent tiles to reduce lipped edges and minimizes the risk of chipped tiles.
Fully Vitrified Tile Flooring Systems are antimicrobial by design with both materials and installation procedures engineered to optimize hygiene. Vibration setting and power grouting installation techniques eliminate voids and potential microbial harbourage sites in the tile lining system, while impervious tiles do not support microbial growth. For added protection, epoxy adhesives and grouts contain antimicrobial agents.
Sanitizers used in hygienic processing environments are becoming more aggressive and more corrosive to manage increasingly resistant strains of bacteria, mould and fungus. Alphatherm offers a comprehensive range of high-performance adhesives, grouts and mortars to address tough corrosion challenges.
