Mapei Waterproofing Products
Mapei products were specified for the refurbishment of the Swansea Leisure Centre. Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Phillip attended the launch of the newly named LC. Laing O'Rourke, of Cardiff, appointed several contractors to install Domus tiles to all new pool areas using Mapei adhesives, grouts, sealants and waterproofing systems. The team of contractors: N C Ceramics Ltd, Sealability Ltd and WK Plasterers Ltd specified a system of Mapei waterproofing products, in order to prepare the walls and floors for, and protect against, the potentially problematic conditions characteristic of leisure-based projects and install over 4 million tiles. All pool and shower area walls were rendered using Mapei's NIVOPLAN levelling mortar, which is fast curing, therefore requiring less time before tiling. Cracks within the concrete or screeds were sealed with, Mapei Eporip solvent free epoxy adhesive. Mapei's MAPELASTIC, a two-part flexible cementitious membrane, was used to waterproof the pool walls and floors. Domus Ceramic Pool tiles were installed, after only 5 days, using Mapei's KERAFLEX, a high strength cementitious tile adhesive with no vertical slip and extended open time.
