Catch up with the latest trends of tile patterns on ceilings with LATAPOXY 310

Transform your Ceiling into a ‘Fifth Wall’

A beautiful lobby enthrals us because of the marvellous interiors. What often gets unnoticed about these interiors is the art on the ceilings. Have you ever observed the décor on the ceilings of a hotel or corporate lobbies, be it in the form of fancy tiles or attractive wallpapers, is gingerly chosen? If mediocre tiles are fixed on a ceiling next to a stunning chandelier, you will never consider the ceiling design to be of great taste. But, one must never underestimate the pattern on the ceiling to be average.

You may say – who keeps their head up high while entering into a hotel, corporate, or even a home, but we all glance through the ceilings without even knowing it. The chandelier on the ceiling of these places catches one’s attention and the attractive tile patterns around it complement it perfectly. It is thus incumbent to add an important design element around the ceiling to add value to the interior.

You are lured by the entrance of a beautiful villa when the chandelier on the ceiling is breathtaking. You need to choose a lovely tile pattern that goes well with the chandelier’s design. When you select the ideal ceiling tile for your space, you save on the trouble of replacing tiles when problems emerge. If ceiling tiles crack or if they need to be replaced often because of fixing problems, it only consumes your time and energy and leaves you disappointed.

When you choose the right ceiling tile type, the next step that follows is fixing it accurately. As the ceiling is a very delicate area and needs utmost attention, one must let this process go about in a gingerly manner. Let your imagination go beyond limits when it comes to thinking of ways to beautify your ceiling space.

There are different tile patterns that you can choose from to add value to your interiors. For instance, the herringbone pattern –creates a sense of space in a small room, adding elegant movements and flow. Another popular tile pattern is the brick bond – it’s a simple pattern style that’s perfect for creating a metropolitan aesthetic. Then there are hexagon tiles – a lively addition to creating a geometric aesthetic. You could also go for modular patterns that are ideal for creating unique and interesting designs on your ceilings. Once you have locked on your tile pattern, all you need to do is fix them well.

While fixing tiles on ceilings, one needs to be careful that there is no gap and that the tile is fixed firmly. The ceiling area is unlike the other walls of your home or hotel or villa, it takes a lot more holding strength than the other walls. Uneven and not levelled ceiling surfaces can create a gap between the back of the tile and the surface. One of the biggest advantages of the spot bonding adhesive is the technique to gap those distances, with almost no extra material.

Here’s where MYK LATICRETE’s LATAPOXY 310 – A Spot Bonding Tile Adhesive comes into play. The bonding strength of this product is unimaginable. This heavy weight champion is ideal for fixing marbles, stones slabs and heavy tiles on vertical surfaces by just putting few dabs. This adhesive covers only 10% of the total surface area yet holds heavy tiles or stones on ceilings & walls. This adhesive stands true to its strength with its non-sag property and can withstand shock and vibration. So, whatever be the height of your imagination, LATAPOXY 310 is the ideal adhesive to support it.


Tradionally, tiles have been installed by using cement and sand slurry. However this method has its inherent problems. Because cement shrinks after drying it leaves hollow spaces below tile surface. These are weak spots in a floor and any impact will result in tile chipping or cracking. For a durable and trouble free installation of tiles adhesives is the right solution.

What is the Tile Adhesive?

Tile Adhesive is a factory-made specially formulated dry powder that is mixed with water or latex additive to form a consistent paste for problem-free tile installation. In the market, there are innumerable types of Tile-Adhesives which vary in the composition & quality due to its ingredients and process of manufacture. MYK LATICRETE has pioneered Tile-Adhesives in India after extensive R&D, reason why they are superior in quality and performance.
MYK LATICRETE tile adhesives has a large range to offer because one type of adhesive is not suitable for every type of tiles and stone. Choose a specific variant of MYK LATICRETE tile adhesive for type of tile or stone.

Bonding Issues of Cement & Tile Adhesives

The mixture of cement dries and shrinks. This creates void underneath the tiles after tile installation is done. This results in poor bonding between the tile and cement and also generates an aesthetic problem by allowing fragile areas to develop cracks with time.
Whereas, MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesive is a fine paste that uniformly spreads across the tile to form a consistent bond and a firm base across the entire surface. Moreover, tile adhesive doesn’t require water curing and tiles set faster.

Comparing Working Quality of Cement & Tile Adhesives

Laying tiles with Cement is indeed a time-consuming and labour intensive process. The process is slow and involves soaking of tiles before installation. The making of cement slurry is a messy affair which consumes substantial quantity of sand and water.
MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesives can be applied easily & effeciiently with the help of a notched trowel. This helps in avoiding many future problems like tile-cracking, water-seeping, and weak bond with the substrate. Tiling with MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesives is much faster process.

Make the Right Choice for your Pocket.

Cement is a cheaper material when compared to Tile Adhesives. But MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesives is value for money. You are likely to spend more on skilled mason and material while tiling with cement. Whereas, MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesives help you curb wastage on material and resources used to tile the floor & walls and leaves no mess.

Why MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesive is the best?

MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesive is innovative designed to provide a strong bond. MYK LATICRETE can meet all your tile application demands. You can choose from the varied range of Tile-Adhesive to perfectly suit your unique set of substrates & tile or stone format. Be it small, large, glass, ceramic, or plastic. MYK LATICRETE Tile Adhesives are designed to offer a firm bond to all your residential and commercial tiling requirements.

Tile Installation: How it differs with Every Substrate

Every tile fixing project has three main components: the tile itself, a solid, levelled out base or the substrate, and the tile adhesive. The efficiency of adhesion depends on these three in equal measure. But narrowing down on the tile and the tile adhesive is largely hinged on the substrate. However, each substrate is more different than the next one in terms of the:
• Material
• Surface roughness
• Stability and durability
• Conditions of flatness/evenness
• Chemical compatibility
• Sensitivity to dampness and water
• Substrate shrinkage possibilities
As a result, no two tiling installations are the same unless the intrinsic characteristics and the materials of the substrates remain identical. In the old days, a thick bed of mortar was the most common substrate but the consideration list has expanded to include everything from floorboards to tile-backer boards to existing tiles to sand: cement screeds to steel to fiber glass to bricks and other substrates. Not all these substrates are acceptable to receive all kinds of tiles and stones and some might even require prepping. For instance,

  • Installing a tile over an existing tile might require roughening up the base tile to provide a better grip and warrants the need of a high strength adhesive such as the LATICRETE 252, a one-step, polymer fortified mortar that has superior flexibility and unparalleled adhesion
  • Tiling over plasterboard in indoor wall surfaces may require waterproofing of the substrate since plasterboards are highly absorbent. It also entails the use of an adhesive that is water-resistant such as the LATICRETE DWA 215, a modified Polyurethane adhesive
  • Tiling over wood means that the tiles and the adhesive are subject to a substrate that will warp/expand when wet, leading to the formation of huge stresses between the tile and the substrate which can lead to debonding or fracture of tiles
  • Since metal substrates tend to be extremely smooth, they practically do not allow for mechanical key to hold tiles on them. Both wood and metal necessitate the use of adhesives such as the LATICRETE PUA 212, a two component, modified Polyurethane adhesive that is highly elastic, thixotropic and can aid in laying tiles and stones on absorbent and non-absorbent substrates

Other substrates such as existing asphalt may contains oils that can make it difficult to adhere tiles and stones to. It is thereby mighty important to consider all these factors seeing as the adhesive that will be required will differ. MYK LATICRETE has consequently designed a line of tile adhesives that are flexible enough to work on everything from cement to metal, across residential, commercial and industrial applications. As a result, a lot of these products are formulated to be used where installations must resist shock, water, temperature changes, physical abuse, and mild chemicals. Referring to installation instructions as per the manufacturer is best practice when it comes to installing tiles over any kind of substrate and can go a long way in ensure the tile job lasts for a long time to come.

Get Creative with Grout: Innovative Design Ideas for Bedrooms

Grout isn’t exactly known to be an aesthetic detail. It is largely white, bland, and simply solves a functional purpose. But lately, grout has undergone a massive upgrade. From lending an expensive flair to ordinary tiles to making a statement in just about any room, tile joints can add quite some personality and dramatically change the feel of a space without blowing the interior budget. There are essentially three basic ways of employing grout across projects for a variety of design interpretations depending on the room:

Teen Bedrooms: Teen bedroomstend to have a lot going on. The space is often more than just for resting. It can play host to friends and witnesses a ton of activity. So it’s only right that these bedrooms reflect the high-energy with contrasting colors of grout. Using simple colors but in contrast to the tile can draw attention to the shape of the tile and instantly elevate a drab wall. Light tiles with a dark grout or a dark tile with a light grout are combinations that are foolproof. For instance, pair a white tile with an electric blue grout or a dark navy tile with and off-white grout.

Kids Bedrooms: Lend a playful vibe to a kids room by pairing edgy colors with equally whimsical tiles. They can create a ton of texture and make the space appear busy allowing for a perfect way to capture kids’ wild imaginations. Try hexagonal shaped tiles with a bold color from the opposite end of the color wheel.

Master Bedrooms: Often the epitome of sophistication, master bedrooms work well with achromatic palette. Choose various hues of the same color for the tile and the grout or a complimentary, coordinated color scheme to add interest without breaking up the flow of the tiles. Think teal tiles and a dark green grout. Seamlessness is another way to go and can be achieved by using the same color of grout as the tile. It can visually expand the size of the space and make the large master bedroom feel even larger. Black tiles with black grout is an up-and-coming theme.
That’s not to say that these grout themes can’t be switched up between rooms. It comes down to the individual taste and preferences and what is on the agenda in terms of achieving a specific look for a space.

Keeping up with these trends in design, MYK LATICRETE introduced the SP-100 Tile Joint in more than 40 colors. From muted tones to bright colors, it covers the entire spectrum of grout themes allowing for endless combinations. It is 100% stainfree and extremely easy to clean, so chances are the grout will help retain the beauty of the space for decades to come. Beyond its aesthetic, the grout is also water resistant and germ resistant, temperature- and chemical-resistantand fits in with both floors and walls so its applications can also spread to bathrooms and kitchens. It is well suited for a range of tiles such as ceramic tiles, vitrified tiles, and marble and stone.

Glue Glass Tiles the Surefire Way

Glass tiles have been making a comeback over the last couple of years with their modern iterations spilling over into the interior world. Where ceramic tile was once the norm, glass tiles are taking over for the fresh, -trendy look that they lend. Shower walls, kitchen backsplashes, accent walls, tub surrounds, they are going everywhere. Now their installation is similar to that of natural stone, porcelain or ceramic. But glass tiles are one tricky set of tiles to fix and the process has been known to be extremely frustrating. Why is it so? Let’s take a look:

  • A glass tile is translucent. So, any adhesive may show through or discolor the tile, disturbing an otherwise picture-perfect tile installation. Color inconsistency in the bonding mortar behind the glass tile can create color variations in the tile too. Since they are reflective, the imperfections are much more visible
  • Glass tiles are fragile in nature warranting installers to exercise additional precautions to prevent breakage
  • These tiles are more expensive than ceramic tiles so if there is damage during installation, costs can escalate
  • Their installations are prone to failure when there are voids/randomly distributed air pockets behind the mortar, caused by the uneven spreading of the mixture or the shrinking of the mortar
  • Traditional mortar does not bond well with the incredibly smooth surface of glass, especially when they have painted or metallic backings.
  • These installations can sometimes fail when exposed to heat or sunlight as the installation material and the glass absorb heat at various rates causing irregular expansion, thereby leading to cracks

With these challenges arising while installing glass tiles, MYK LATICRETE formulated a range of specialized products that would ensure the glass and glass mosaic tiles develop an excellent bond, no matter what the substrate and installation conditions are, as detailed below:

  • MYK LATICRETE PUA 212, a 2-component, modified Polyurethane Adhesive was designed for the installation of glass tiles among other types over just about any substrate including metals. It is highly elastic and thixotropic and can lay tiles on highly expandable, deformable, absorbent and non-absorbent substrates. It is also water, heat, freezing, and thermal shock resistant.
  • When it comes to more intricate tiles such as the glass mosaic, the LATICRETE DWA 215, a modified Polyurethane adhesive can come to the rescue, enabling installation on drywall boards and clean dry cement surfaces. Given that it is a single component adhesive, it rids the need for combining various proportions of materials, eliminating the possibilities of inconsistencies in color and unevenness in tiles. It has a significantly high bond strength bypass most products of the type in the market, along with being water and shock resistant.
  • Better yet, the LATICRETE 254 PLATINUM thinset adhesive is designed especially for interior and exterior floor and wall installations of glass mosaic tiles while also enabling tile on tile applications. Good underwater shear bond allows this product to be used for wet wash rooms and water bodies. The LATICRETE 252 Ag SILVER thinset Adhesive, another high polymer modified thinset adhesive offers similar benefits.
  • Glass mosaic tile installations in industrial and commercial areas is made possible with LATAPOXY 300, an epoxy adhesive with chemical resistant components.

Combined with the impeccable quality of its products, experts from fields ranging from construction to interior design have come to trust MYK LATICRETE’s high-tech glass solutions. The company aims to continue to deliver such innovative products and serve the ever-evolving building and design industries.

Innovative Mivan initiative ‘Planet SKS’ Leverages High-tech Tile Installation Solutions

The construction industry in India is in the midst of a milestone-crossing spree. Among the recent successes is the adoption of the MIVAN formwork. A construction technology that offers higher architectural and design flexibility while enabling completion of construction projects economically and at an unsurpassed pace, the system is gaining ground in India. ‘Planet SKS’, a ground + 35 storied high-rise apartment in Mangalore, constituting 169 3 bhks and 4 bhks is among the early adopters of the technique. The landmark building backed by the construction prowess of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) underlines the commitment that the builders and the promoters SKS Netgate had in mind: one that was oriented to quality, efficiency, low cost, and long-term value. The partners chosen for the project were to reflect these values as well, and that is where MYK LATICRETE featured. The leading force in tile fixing was commissioned to provide a hassle-free installation solution across a ~3.8 lakh sq. ft area in the residential property.

The installation system proposed and used by MYK LATICRETE involved the following:

  • The vibrant swimming pool was fitted with glass mosaic tiles across a8000 sq. ft area using the LATICRETE 252 Ag Silver high polymer modified thinset adhesive. A specialty adhesive, it has been formulated specially for such tricky installations where a strong underwater shear bond is necessary to keep these installations intact over decades of use. While a highly technical water- and shock-resistant product, this single component adhesive trumps most alternatives in the market in terms of its ease of use, economical application, and bond strength. It was also used to fix the deck area of the swimming pool
  • To further secure the glass mosaic tiles in the pool areaand give the pool a crisp, finished look, the MYK LATICRETE SP-100 tile joint was employed. The grout has been formulated with a strong resistance to chemicals intended for water treatment and pH balance,adding rigidity and strength to the tile work. Its stain- and water-resistance and anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties have further elevated its functionality. This would help keep the pool looking pristine and equally clean by preventing the tile joints from harboring germs
  • A truly versatile product, the LATICRETE 252 Ag Silver thinset adhesive was also used for internal cladding to fit vitrified tiles on all the bathroom walls in the residential property. Given that the surfaces are dense in the Mivan construction method, there was a need for an adhesive that could guarantee a fail-proof bond. Since the product exceeds ANSI A118.4 shear bond strength conditions and the IS 15477 – Type 2 Adhesive standards, the product fit the requirement hand in glove

The project was completed successfully with no excess time or resources being lost to complex and lengthy tile installations. MYK LATICRETE aims to continue supporting the vision of innovators and the initiatives of the early adopters in the building space in order to meet the aspirations of a new generation of customers.

Make Big Impact with Wall Murals and SP-100 Tile Joints

Statement walls are all the rage these days and wall murals are a unique take on them. They combine brilliant colors and intricate designs via patterned tile arrangements allowing for incredibly personalized walls and unlimited creative possibilities. They lend an organic look to offices, malls, churches, and homes and are either used in the form of a decorative panel, accent wall, shower mural, or as a backsplash in kitchens. For how bespoke and hand-crafted they are, it is apparent that they don’t come easy or cheap. More often than not, the murals are reproduced from existing canvases or images and tiles are cut into a design basis the plan or images are transferred onto tiles through specialized custom-printing techniques.

Seeing as wall murals require putting together pieces of various shapes and sizes, irregular width gaps, both tiny and large, and variances in thickness of tiles are common. In vertical wall murals, grout lines are usually very small. Imaged or not, all wall mural jobs dictate that there be a grout space/ line; tiles can’t be but joined. The tile joint that goes in makes the mural functional by ensuring that in times of contraction or expansion of the setting material, there is no crack. It also acts as a moisture barrier that prevents the decay of the tile from behind and possible damage to the wall that it has been installed over by keeping mold from forming.

Traditional grouts, however, often can’t handle moisture, differences in gaps and tile thickness,and excessive movement and thus crack. In some cases, tile gaps tend to be too far apart, disintegrating the tile joint. Sanded grout which is conventionally used can also scratch the tile surface in the cases where the glaze isn’t solid enough. Also, a lot of glazed mural tiles have microscopic pores which can lead to discoloration the tile while grouting, creating unsightly stains and ruining the mural altogether, specifically when the grout is in a conflicting shade/hue.

All that being said, grout lines don’t just have a practical side to them. They also lend a mosaic look to murals, elevating their aesthetic. By bolstering the weight of a line, the tile joint can also be an integral element of the decorative process.
After understanding these requirements and the gaps in the market in terms of catering to such complex applications, MYK LATICRETE devised the SP-100 tile joint. A stain- ,germ-, and water resistant grout that works with ceramic tiles and vitrified tiles, this product not only gives the wall mural more body, it also ensures it retains its beauty for years to come through its color-fastness. In addition, given that the tile joint is available in a range of colors, it can help amp up the composition either by creating a more muted look through seamlessness or produce a strong decorative effect by way of a contrasting color of grout. It is non-cracking or powdering, and chemical and temperature resistant offering advantages that far outweigh any other product in the market.

All in all, MYK LATICRETE has time and again demonstrated its strengthin providing innovative tile and stone installation materials.

The Key to Grief-free Finishes Installation on Drywall Substrates: DWA 215

In an age where time is money, drywalls are a boon. From enabling faster construction to being relatively lightweight and accommodating several paints, textures, and lightweight applications,drywalls are finding their way into interior walls and ceilings.Today’s generation of drywall substrates have seen some game-changing evolution and have branched out to cater to a range of spaces and activities. They are being made to handle varied conditions such as dry, wet, and limited water exposure.

When injected with some personality through the use of finishes such as glass mosaic tiles, drywalls can really hit the ball out of the park in terms of their design and aesthetic capacity while also being cleaner and faster than conventional brick wall constructions. Since they can be dismantled and altered easily, they enable remodelling/refurbishing across a range of décor elements to reflect the changes in mood. And while drywalls and finishes have come a long way, the traditional adhesives that bring the two together and hold them in place, haven’t.

There are quite a few options available when it comes to installing tiles on drywall substrates, such as mastic and sand-cement mixtures, but their end-use can be narrow and limited to certain types of tiles and at other times, they can simply fall short on performance. Moisture can be a huge pain point in traditional drywalls, both from within the sand-cement mixture and its application to areas that encounter a lot of moisture. It is heavily likely to compromise the integrity of the drywall. To hold all that weight, applications need something to grip onto when installed on these boards. The sand-cement mixture tends to be weak in both flexural strength and tension making it prone to cracking, and consequently leading to de-bonding. Stones such as green marble can flake with mastic or mortar and not all glass tiles adhere well when bonded with these materials. Given that the physics doesn’t work in a lot of these cases, it’s logical to assume that the market required a high-performance adhesive that was versatile.

MYK LATICRETE thereby created a product that increases the lifecycle of the application by great lengths through high bond strength. The MYK LATICRETE DWA 215 Modified Polyurethane adhesive was developed for fixing ceramic, vitrified, andglass mosaic tiles onvarious types of drywall boards.Further, borrowing inspiration from drywalls itself and their ability to withstand high tension environments such as earthquake prone zones and high rise buildings, MYK LATICRETE developed a green product that holds its own even in areas where installations are subject to physical abuse, shock, and mild chemicals on all kinds of drywall substrates including gypsum wall board and calcium silicate boards. It also helps slash down hours of manpower seeing as this single component adhesive is easy to use and doesn’t require any more than simply opening and putting to use. All in all, the DWA 215 is a well-rounded product. Going forward, MYK LATICRETE aims to continue bringing contemporary world standards to the tile and stone installation and maintenance industry in India through such products.
