Big tiles, big discussion in Edmonton

by | August 25, 2015 1:02 pm

On Wednesday, September 9, the Edmonton Chapter of CSC is hosting a breakfast talk dealing with the various challenges associated with large-format tile.

The event, which takes place at the Chateau Louis Hotel & Conference Centre[1] from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., will be led by Montréal CSC member Pierre Hebert, manager of technical services at Mapei. Hebert will explore ‘calibration specifications’ that are followed when porcelain tile is manufactured, along with how the quality, variety of sizes, and intended use of the tile can affect the installation method. The presentation also covers the importance of surface preparation as the size of the porcelain tile increases, as well as how grout joint size and mortar type can affect performance.
