    Project Update: Waterproofing and Tiling Solution at 39 Conduit Road (天匯)
    At 39 Conduit Road, Hong Kong, a long lasting high performance solution was required for tiling the beautiful artwork patterned wall, made up of small size marble mosaics. The existing concrete retaining wall substrate exhibited serious signs of water seepage and the location was exposed to a relatively humid environment. To ensure proper bonding of the marble mosaics to the wall, as well as ensuring the finished surface will remain free from efflorescence, the Project Manager looked for a high performance and durable tiling solution to achieve the required finished quality for this prestigious residential project. Optimix provided a workable and high performance solution to address the existing site conditions and the desired quality requirements. The project used Optimix materials to resist the backing seepage water and to control the possible moisture movement in the rendering and tiling layers; together with an Optimix render layer, with a target bonding strength of over 1.0MPa; and an Optimix tile adhesive system to provide extra adhesion and flexibility to accommodate any possible movement, as well as anti-efflorescence properties. This Optimix system is one of the best solutions available in the market to provide guaranteed and long-lasting performance of over 1.0 MPa in each layer within the system. Products used:   OPTIMIX WP515 Waterproofing Slurry OPTIMIX WP533 Semi-Flexible Waterproofing Slurry OPTIMIX BP168 Premium Base Plaster OPTIMIX TA338S High Performance Tile Adhesive (C2TES2) and OPTIMIX TG410ES Tile Grout
