Las Vegas—Sika, a global supplier of specialty industrial chemicals, will bring its SikaTile solutions for gauged porcelain tile panel and slab (GPTP/S) installations to TISE 2023, held here at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Sika representatives will be on hand to discuss the importance of surface preparation and the need to achieve flat surfaces using SikaLevel-025 Patch. Visitors will also learn how SikaTile-200 Fracture Guard Rapid prevents existing or eventual substrate cracks from transmitting through to the GPTP/S surface.

Finally, visitors will see how high-performance SikaTile-815 Secure Grout is designed to deliver hard, durable joints while Sikasil N Plus silicone sealant is designed to deliver expansion joints strong enough for GPTP/S installations.
