Preparation  

Preparation is key to the overall finish and longevity of your tiling project. There is no cure for a poorly prepared sub surface, the following products help to achieve a solid, level surface for tiling onto. 
 

No More Ply 

The ultimate tile backer board, can be used on wall or floor and is designed to give the perfect base for tiling, the 6mm cement board is as strong as 18mm chipboard without creating a threshold problem, this versatile product can be used on timber or concrete floors and offers thermal, waterproofing, fire proofing and sound protection. 
 

Durabase Underlay Matting 

This decoupling matting seals the floor stopping problems from cracks and moisture in the subfloor being passed into the tiles. It can be used on new concrete floors doing away with the wait for concrete to cure, durabase is fixed with flexible adhesive. 
 

Levelling Compound 

Used for raising levels and smoothing out uneven surfaces. There are two levelling compound types available, Flexible levelers for use on timber surfaces and where underfloor heating is present, non flexible levelers used for concrete surfaces. 
 
Alchester Tiles are your local stockist for Larsen and Weber levelling compounds. 
 

Tanking 

Tanking kits usually consist of a primer, rubberised liquid and corner tape, this is used to waterproof the inside of a shower area or wet room before tiling. 
 

Primer 

Acrylic primers seal dusty or absorbent surfaces and act as a bonding agent enhancing the adhesive properties. 
 
SBR primers have the same properties as acrylic primers but can also be used as an admix giving flexibility, waterproofing and frost protection.
