Sanitary and tiles
From shower cubicles to wall cladding, Ramsauer products used properly will make bonding, sealing and grouting work a success on all manner of tiles.
Tile by tile – perfectly grouted
Whether on the floor, in the shower or on the wall, tiling requires a high degree of precision and accuracy. To ensure that the results stay enduringly attractive, high-quality adhesives and sealants are important. Ramsauer offers special products for the various individual applications that deliver what they promise and stand the test of time.
Water, heat and cleaning products are no match for Ramsauer’s sealants
To avoid damage in the bathroom caused by cracks in the perimeter joints, it’s crucial to ensure shower trays and bathtubs are properly sealed. After all, their joints have to go the extra mile, especially in places where different components meet. As well as water, heat and aggressive cleaning agents, movements from the individual pieces also demand a great deal from the sealants in wet spaces. To ensure that moisture and dirt don’t stand a chance, the sealants used should have an outstanding grip while being smoothable and easy to apply. Because water only runs off properly on smooth surfaces with a concave shape. We also recommend paying attention to the silicone’s colour as well as its properties. After all, a bathroom should combine both function and aesthetics in equal measure.
All sealed up – no way in for water
In areas that regularly come into contact with water, the sub-floor must be properly and durably sealed before the flooring is laid. If this isn’t the case, moisture and humidity can spread unnoticed, resulting in expensive structural damage. Professionally sealing bathrooms and lavatories is a multi-faceted job that necessarily involves carrying out multiple tasks and using various materials. To achieve 100% waterproof results, it’s pivotal to ensure that the primer, waterproofing slurry and supplies are a perfect match. If you want to be on the safe side, make sure to use Ramsauer’s specially developed all-in-one solution.
Choosing the right water penetration grade
When picking the right products, it’s vital to pay attention to their water penetration classification. This is graded depending on the level of water exposure. The DIN 18534 and ÖNORM B3407:2015 standards determine these ratings in Germany and Austria, for instance.
Our specialists will be happy to point you towards the right products for your application.
Keeping tiles in place long-term
It’s hard to imagine a bathroom or lavatory without tiles. And that should come as no surprise – as well as being hard-wearing, long-lasting and easy to clean, tiles also deliver an impressive visual impact thanks to their versatility. Detailed planning and picking the right tool are key to ensuring that tiles provide a strong hold despite heavy stress and strain from factors such as moisture, heat and chemicals. For great results that last, it should be possible to apply the adhesive quickly and to different materials, even in difficult conditions.
Duschrückwand richtig montieren.
Damit die neuen Duschrückwände dauerhaft halten und auch optisch ansprechend aussehen, ist eine präzise Arbeitsweise wichtig:
- Messen Sie die zu verschönernde Fläche genau aus. Denken Sie dabei auch an die Aussparungen für die Armaturen.
- Schneiden Sie die Platten den Maßen entsprechend zu.
- Befreien Sie die Klebeflächen von Staub und Schmutz.
- Tragen Sie den Klebstoff auf und befestigen Sie die Duschrückwände zusätzlich, während der Klebstoff aushärtet.
- Zum Schluss dichten Sie alle entstandenen Fugen mit Silikon ab.
