Tiling Tips

Natural Stone Tiles

Natural stone tiles show varying mineralogy depending on the source and metamorphic conditions of that particular environment. This impact on the porosity of the natural stone showing variations within a classification, and between classifications. TAL GOLDSTAR 6, a high strength rapid setting adhesive, should always be used to fix natural stone tiles.

Note: TAL MARBLEFIX should be used with white or light coloured porous natural stone tiles, where a grey adhesive may show through in the form of staining.
Natural stone tiles should always be sealed after fixing. Not only will the sealer enhance the natural beauty of the tile, but will also prevent the tiles from staining.

TAL GOLDSTAR GROUT SEALER is ideal for sealing grout joints as well as small area applications.
