Internal or external wall tiling/cladding work is exposed to extreme temperature variations which induce expansion and contraction of tiles/stones. Also, external tiling or cladding is also affected by rains, wind, and gravitational force. Air pockets and lack of curing reduces the stability of tiling work. This is reflected in cracking, dislodging and falling of tiles.
Perlcon Vertigrip provides a sand free, self-curing, extra strength, special tiling mortar for vertical surfaces. Its even spreading ensures tiling work completely devoid of air pockets and cavities. Its special formulation decreases maintenance costs.
Being lighter and self-curing, Vertigrip is a boon for quick construction. No pre wetting of substrate and tiles is required for application of Vertigrip. This saves water and prevents tile breakage. Vertigrip also allows a correction time of 10-12 minutes for readjustment of tiles, increasing the accuracy and aesthetics of tiling work.
