    Project Overview: Hong Kong Housing Authority - Maintenance and Refurbishment Works in Tin Shui Estate
    OPTIMIX has been providing HKHA projects with various products for their estate improvement programme and in-flat maintenance services, thus providing a safe and comfy living environment for the residents and extending the life of the building. Recently we supplied Prebatched Concrete and Skimcoat to Tin Shui Estate, Tin Shui Wai for building improvements and units repair:     1. The repair in rooftop water tanks requires concrete stumps, yet due to the location being a rooftop and material consumption is rather limited, using a concrete truck is not cost and time effective. Therefore, the contractor chose the OPTIMIX PC30 Prebatched Concrete (Standard) in 40kg bag. This product complies with Hong Kong Buildings Department Code of Practice for Structural Use of Concrete 2013, and also attained the mix ID from Public Works Laboratories under CEDD, which allows us to supply this product to HKHA projects anytime. What's so special about prebatched concrete is that, other than no location restriction, the quality of concrete is consistent and stable, greatly enhancing the project's flexibility, including but not limited to costs and working time.         2. The vacant premises in the estate require interior wall and ceiling plaster finish, the contractor adopted OPTIMIX SC273 Skimcoat (Putty for Paint), replacing the traditional lime putty with unstable quality. Our special formula makes it easy to polish and allows a highly efficient and time-saving application. Besides, the damp & mould resistance and low VOC content makes it very suitable for residential, commercial and public buildings.   If you have any questions for prebatched concrete and skimcoat, you are welcome to be in contact with us! We will soon continue providing different solutions for repair projects.

    A Hybrid of Modern and Contemporary Art · M+ Visual Culture Museum
    Situated in Hong Kong West Kowloon Cultural District, the construction of main building of M+ Museum has been completed and is expected to open towards the end of 2021. Neighboring the Victoria Harbor, the museum has 18 storeys with a gross area of 650,000 sq ft., which includes an exhibition center of 170,000 sq ft. The building houses multiple exhibition halls, theaters, research centers and a rooftop garden that captures the scenic view of Victoria Harbor.   The M+ Museum is designed by the world-renowned architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron collaborating with TFP Farrells and Arup, being the world’s second largest contemporary visual culture museum after The Centre Pompidou in Paris in 1977.   Fully supporting this benchmark project, OPTIMIX has supplied M+ with our comprehensive product range including Base Plaster, Skimcoat, Tile Adhesive, Tile Grout, Floor Screed and Non-shrink Grout.   Other than the green building designs in areas outside the exhibits, the major energy-saving design is applied to the collection area in the building, in order to realize the goal of preserving exhibits sustainably.  When building the M+ Museum, the Hong Kong construction environment assessment specification BEAM Plus is followed, dedicated to not only sustainability but also practicality. Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD) has also been an essential part in the M+ design process. Through integrating architectural and construction stages, mechanics and other technologies, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission is reduced to the minimum.   Sustainable development is a key that OPTIMIX highly values, and it is also a belief and promise that we share.   We work hard in the aspects of environmental friendliness and sustainable development, being a sponsoring patron of HKGBC, our products are also recognized by the Eco-Product Directory of HKGBC.   We fully utilize the geographical advantages of a manufacturing plant in Dongguan, by choosing materials that are within the region it can reduce the cost, transportation energy and related pollutions, and also support the local economy. Advocating the green building in M+ project, the BEAM score is therefore increased.

    Tips on Grouting
    When we complete the process of tiling on a substrate and have reserved the joints between tiles, it is time for us to do grouting of joints.   While there are arrays of tile grouting or sealing products out in the market, have you ever wondered which choice would be the best?   Other than longevity, durability and appearance, we also have to bear eco-friendliness in mind. Partial amount of unqualified two-component tile sealants are composed of a high level of organic compounds which emit carcinogens such as formaldehyde and increase the carbon footprint.   Grouting powder is a safe, non-toxic, eco-friendly and ideal option to fill tile joints, with an ultra-easy application process.     Mix one bag of tile grout dry powder with potable water in accordance with the suggested water demand to achieve the desired consistency. Mechanical mixing with a slow speed drill and paddle is recommended. Apply the powder to the water and mix for about 5 minutes or until a lump free homogeneous mix is achieved. Allow the mix to stand for 3 minutes and mix briefly again just before use.     Apply the OPTIMIX TG410E using a rubber squeegee or rubber trowel to fill the joints in a diagonal motion. Vary the direction of the trowel passing over the same joint a few times and use light trowel pressure.     Once the grout surface begins to dry, then the grout and the surrounding tile surface can be cleaned. This should be done at regular intervals during the installation using a damp cloth or sponge.   Joints can be further smoothed using a gloved finger or with a pointing tool.   Then voila! It is done! OPTIMIX TG410E is a decorative high quality polymer modified cementitious mortar for tile grouting and joint filling. The product is strong, hard wearing and waterproof. It complies with the highest level of EN 13888 CG2 WA. OPTIMIX TG410E is available in a range of colours and textures to match most common joint widths, depths and architectural preferences.   Grade Recommended  Joint Width Recommended Depth TG410E – F (Fine Texture) 1mm – 6mm >3mm TG410E (Standard Texture) 3mm – 10mm >3mm TG410E – C (Coarse Texture) 5mm – 15mm >5mm If you have any questions regarding our dry mortar products, feel free to contact us today! https://www.optimix.com.hk/contact
