LATICRETE has earned a global reputation for the ability to provide the specification details, technical support and complete systems for the installation of tile & stone, with continued success on an increasing number of high-profile swimming pool projects.
In a global effort between U.S. based technical services, and through local supply and on-site support provided by LATICRETE Southeast Asia, LATICRETE materials were selected for Boston architect Moshe Safdie’s ambitious infinity-edge pool design. The pool spans across three 55-story hotel skyscrapers on top of the exclusive Marina Bay Sands® Singapore.
Measuring over three times that of an Olympic-sized swimming pool on a cantilevered rooftop observation deck, the Sands® SkyPark signature design element was no ordinary pool tile application. Safdie’s elaborate, famous pool that connects all three towers, ultimately relied on the pioneering technology developed by LATICRETE.
Due to the unique structural design, weight, and stresses placed on the three buildings of the Sands SkyPark, it was necessary to bond the tile directly to the stainless steel pool shell. To accomplish this task, LATAPOXY® 300 Adhesive, a high-strength 100% solids epoxy adhesive, was chosen based on its ability to tenaciously bond to stainless steel.
