Dry spaces and outdoor areas
Kitchens and dry toilets
Any indoor spaces with no floor drain are considered to be dry spaces. In other words, tiling open spaces in a kitchen, for example, does not usually require waterproofing. In some cases, however, waterproofing may be required if there is a water source in the area to be tiled.
Terraces, balconies, plinths and stairs
The outdoor surfaces that are most often tiled include terraces, balconies, plinths and stairs. When installed outdoors, the tiles must be suitable for outdoor conditions and temperatures. All Kiilto tile adhesives can withstand outdoor conditions after drying. During tile installation, the outdoor temperature must be at least +5°C. When installing tiling, it is also good to remember that the adhesive must cover the entire backside of the tile. This prevents any of the tiles from coming loose in low temperatures.
Bathrooms and other wet rooms
Tiling in wet rooms requires waterproofing that must meet specific regulations. For this reason, it is recommended to leave the installation to professionals. Read more.
