We provide tile related service including chemical solution, tile adhesive, and other bonding agent application to fit all range of buildings, such as commercial, infrastructure, low-rise, high-rise, residential building, and industrial plant. Those areas that we are able to cover are including wall, flooring as well as other building chemicals for roofing, ceiling, underlayment, bridge, tank, column, beam, any concrete overlay surfaces and many more. Bonding agent supplier Malaysia is able to service you from specification preparation or design stage, supply, application to maintenance work. Tile adhesive is essential for countries such as Malaysia because Malaysia have relatively high humidity atmosphere and raining season made up the majority days in a year. Therefore, high quality and durable tile adhesive are mostly to be the choice for durable and longevity. The importance of bonding agent cannot be neglected as each building will normally have non-identical tiles for different parts of the rooms; hence, we shall get some sort of strong bonding agent in order to ensure the adhesion is there as well as water will not penetrate the building. If Water penetrates through the building will affect the structural integrity and then it might cause safety issues and other annoying inconveniences to the tenants. Today, suppliers of bonding agent in Malaysia revolve around the central region and there are multiple competitive brands in the market that compete with each other but yet they still survive due to one key factor, product market is huge.
During the design stage, most architects and engineers will specify the tile adhesive brands (most of them will include the word “equivalent”), level of specification to any designated area in the building. It is essential to treat different areas of the building differently in order to prevent so-called “over-specified” or “under-specified” issues. These two issues required to handle since it is interrelated closely with safety and financial. Tile adhesive supplier Malaysia usually advise client adjusting more budget for those areas that potentially will cause safety issues, i.e. the wall tile that was not properly installed and inferior adhesive chemical will drop and damage the building users. However, developer or contractor will normally pay more attention to structural component of the building such as load-bearing concrete column and concrete beam, from the admixture to the surface; they are more likely neglected this part and assumed will not cause severe issue afterward. According to tile adhesive supplier in Malaysia too, structural elements may turn up to be a serious issue if no proper waterproofing being treated initially. This is due to water penetration the inner part of concrete, steel in touch with water and subsequently corrosion process could occur. Corrosion will subsequently affect structural strength of these components, from foundation to load bearing wall as well as the roof structure. It applies to the tile adhesive also since it has to do with waterproofing.
Tile adhesive supplier in Malaysia come across a lot of incidents where developers want to save cost and compromise on the tile adhesive or waterproofing chemicals specification, they see it most likely it will not cause serious issues on those structural parts of the building. The usage of waterproofing is to close up the porosity of concrete infill and surface, blocking chemical and water elements to infiltrate concrete, then indirectly and directly deteriorating the building. On the other hand, tile adhesive supplier Malaysia says that their products work on top of the surface, blocking the water from attacking the tile or substrate while acting as a bonding agent for the tile. Keeping the surface dry and avoid it being in touch with water cannot solve the problem, especially the building outer surface that prone to receive rainwater. According to the tile adhesive supplier Malaysia, most of the waterproofing issue happens from the foundation. It is the building part that cannot be seen and being monitored obviously at most of the time, what happens underneath the slab cannot be observed either and require examine from time to time. For instance, the soil will always absorb water whenever possible and will cause the foundation to be bounded with wet soil. Tile adhesive supplier in Malaysia claims that wet soil will swell and lose strength if the waterproofing job of the foundation did not carry out seriously. Furthermore, the water will slip up and cause the tiled floor to crack or uneven.
More to the point on how precaution move can be done is that water passage in the concrete should be prevented with much attention while the hydrostatic pressure needs to treated with some sort of proper resistance level. The treatment mentioned here is for both interior and exterior side of the concrete system, waterproofing effort should be done too at the underneath and top side. Tile adhesive supplier Malaysia advises that there are several layers and method to apply the waterproofing, including the membrane sheet on the surface side in which it receives or may in touch with incoming water and chemical. They do also encourage to enhance the protection by putting in waterproofing solution into the concrete infill, known as admixture besides the external side of the concrete.
Other Waterproofing Types
There are various kind of waterproofing component types such as the liquid membrane, wall putty, plastering material, torch on-membrane, sheet membrane, lining waterproofing, injection waterproofing and many more. Regardless of which kind of waterproofing material, they shared the same feature, which is resistance to moisture content and water. Tile adhesives supplier in Malaysia able to provide a wide range of material types such as mastic, bitumen, varnish, paint and the application method can be varied too. Coupled with the emerging of advanced technology, most of the waterproofing nowadays will be equipped with synthetic resin which can protect the substrate from moisture. One of the popular types of waterproofing that can be seen in the industry is lining waterproofing. The lining waterproofing has been categorized into 2 major categories by chemical industry expert, these are lining waterproofing and paintable one. Tile adhesives supplier Malaysia who offers the pioneer one is able to achieve cost competitive because it can cover from concrete, brick, and other substances such as metal. Roofing felt is a good example that falls in this category which can be presented in sheet or roll form, although it is still possible to install extruded polystyrene (it can be glued to the bitumen mastic either by cold or hot method).
Another kind of material is known as the liquid membrane, it can be applied to corner and edge such as connecting point of floor and wall as well as a planter box, roof, retaining wall or balcony. Tile adhesives supplier in Malaysia suggests using the torch on membrane on the above mentioned areas by using gas torch gun to do the adhesive. It is highly suitable to be installed on a large surface that is flat, an especially huge project to achieve economical of scale. Another one known as injection waterproofing and is common to be found in a hardware shop. Applying it using the injector to form a waterproofing barrier membrane between walls, ground, foundation, cold joint to improve its load bearing capacity and get rid of leakage. Last but not least, there are also simple waterproofing materials such as wall putty, plastering where these products are durable and able to resist high level of chemical, mechanical, physical and damages brought by weather.
