The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra

Making its mark in royal perfection: The Oberoi Amarvilas, 7 Star Luxury Hotel, Agra.

 

The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra enjoys an unrivalled position amongst luxury hotels in Agra, being located just 600 metres from the iconic Taj Mahal. Each room offers uninterrupted view of this ancient monument of love.

When the job of renovating existing swimming pool & water bodies came up, Mr. Sushil Tyagi (Sr. Chief Engineer) of The Oberoi hotels felt only MYK LATICRETE – Leader in Tile & Stone Installation Solutions could do justice to the execution of a project. We recommended the complete swimming pool system which included surface preparation, water proofing, fixing & grouting of ceramic tiles in the pool and water bodies.

Contractors: The Grout People, New Delhi

Total area of application : 9000 sq. ft

MYK LATICRETE System proposed:

Surface preparation: MYK LATICRETE Power Plast™ was recommended as levelling bed on pool surface. The levelling Power Plast™ is designed to use with water to produce superior strength. It is water retaining and self curing plaster that meets & exceeds the requirements of National & International standards.

Waterproofing: LATICRETE® HYDRO BAN® waterproofing membrane was recommended to waterproof the pool surface. LATICRETE® HYDRO BAN® is a single component self curing liquid rubber polymer that forms a flexible, seamless waterproofing membrane. It helps to prevent efflorescence & deterioration of underlying assembly components by eliminating damaging water leakage.

Tile adhesive: LATICRETE® 254 Platinum Thinset Adhesive was used to fix ceramic tiles in the pool & other water bodies. LATICRETE® Polymer Modified Thinset Adhesive creates a tenacious bond for the ceramic tiles installed in the swimming pool & water bodies. Superior strength, flexibility to handle structural movements, non-sag property and taking on extreme weather conditions are among the features of LATICRETE® 254 Platinum Thinset Adhesive.

Grouting: LATAPOXY® SP-100 Stainfree Grout for Floor N’ Wall was used to fill the joints between sand stone. LATAPOXY® SP-100 stainfree grout provides superior resistance to chemicals used for water treatment, pH imbalance & delamination from movement.

MYK LATICRETE’s ability to take single source responsibility for these demanding, high performance applications dovetailed with technical & after sales service makes it the ‘Numero Uno’ choice of clients.
