In July LATICRETE Technical Sales Rep from NSW, Craig Hunter, and LATICRETE Australia Technical Services Manager, Fred Gray, conducted training at Randwick TAFE. 1st year tiling students were actively hands on with practical learning, with the opportunity to mix, use, and feel the difference between a range of LATICRETE adhesives.
In the classroom students discussed the various technical characteristics and classifications of adhesives, to be better prepared and informed about choosing the right adhesive for different projects they may encounter in the workplace, e.g. Large thin panel tile, pool mosaics, and commercial applications.
LATICRETE products demonstrated include:
- Ultra X8 Polymer Fortified Flexible Adhesive - A creamy and smooth to trowel thin-set adhesive for installing all types of tile and stone over a wide range of surfaces. Mixed with either water or for additional strength and performance with LATICRETE latex admixtures for installing porcelain, vitrified, ceramic and stone tiles on floors and walls in both internal and external areas.
