    DB390 & DB391 Rapid-Set Flooring Solution for Climate Changes
    This winter we are under the impact of an unusually cold weather, OPTIMIX sends our warmest regards in hopes that you are all safe and cozy at home. The last thing we need in this acute change in climate would be tiles popping up, imposing danger of injuries and the hassle of getting them repaired. In August we made a post discussing the importance of grouting to prevent this: https://bit.ly/3bQgyHk     The common reasons for tiles popping up are: 1. Plummeting temperature, expansion and shrinkage-caused movements in the substrate 2. Insufficient joint width between tiles.   For large floor tiles, we also recommend using our rapid-set DB390 & DB391 the Semi-Dry Bedding Mortar series. Utilizing the dry screed method, shrinkage and tile movement is much more stable with the DB screed, thus the risk of tiles popping and detachment is minimized, ensuring your safety even in extreme climates.   OPTIMIX DB390 SEMI-DRY BEDDING MORTAR (RAPID-SETTING) is a high quality rapid hardening screed designed for semi-dry bedding method of installation. OPTIMIX DB390 is simple to mix, easy to apply and has a reasonable working time to allow for rapid installation and quick return to service.   OPTIMIX DB391 ADHESIVE SLURRY (RAPID-SETTING) is a high quality polymer modified cementitious fast-setting adhesive. It is designed for rapid fixing and easy adjustment of floor tiles on traditional semi-dry bedding system. It is ready for grouting and can receive foot traffic in 6 hours after installation.     As a reference, after laying and leveling tiles, the ideal thickness of the adhesive should be about 3-5mm, the final thickness after application may be slightly reduced due to pressure. This thickness is sufficient to maintain the level of the entire floor tile system while avoiding hollowing. In order to prevent floor tiles from squeezing each other due to expansion, proper joint widths should be reserved during application.   If you have any questions regarding the installation of floor tiles, please feel free to contact us: https://www.optimix.com.hk/contact.

    OPTIMIX Awarded Eco Partner in BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards 2019
    BOCHK Corporate Environmental Leadership Awards 2019 Prize Presentation and 2020 Launching Ceremony hosted by FHKI was successfully held on 5 October. Optimix has once again been awarded “Eco-Partner” certification for 3 consecutive years.   Optimix has always devoted in proposing and implementing new improvement plans on being environmentally friendly. In the process of handling raw materials and production, we hope to maximize each material’s use in every way. Plants in production process would produce some amount of dry mortar by-products, and with our past practice these by-products eventually might end up being industrial waste. In order to handle these by-products more effectively, we are now collaborating with national accredited contractors to recycle and further process them, giving these by-products a second life by turning them into materials like mechanical sand. Other than reducing industrial waste, we can also recycle and reuse these materials, ultimately reaching a win-win sustainable solution.   We stand by our rule to develop sustainably and one of our goals is to minimize the environment impact of our activities. We will also continue to search for innovative solutions, creating shared values for our customers and society.
