The benefits of Bondera mat sets
A relatively recent entrant into the flooring and surfacing industry, Bondera tile mat sets are proving increasingly popular among both contractors and the do-it-yourself crowd. As one of the easiest, most cost-effective and unique surfacing or flooring products, Bondera tile mat sets have emerged as a premier bathroom vinyl flooring solution. The traditional installation of vinyl in the bathroom has given way to this revolutionary and seamlessly easy construction product and method.
The Bondera tile mat set is a pressure-sensitive adhesive that arrives in a huge roll. According to the company's website, it is essentially a peel and stick product that allows the user to simply adhere the sticky tile to the adhesive on whichever part of the floor or wall section. Since the premier selling point of Bondera tile mat sets is its ease of installation, here are some tips on how to correctly place the adhesives.
The first step is to clean the flat surface of wall or floor and make sure that it remains dry and dust-free. According to A Concord Carpenter, it is best to use a fast drying latex primer over dusty, low-cohesive strength surfaces such as plaster or a joint compound. Using a utility knife, the Bondera tile mat can be cut to your specific size and specifications. As a bonus tip, spray a light coat of oil such as WD40 on the cutting tool to prevent the adhesive from sticking.
Planning is naturally the most important tip to offer users, so be sure to have the entire surface mapped out in your head before laying the tiles. Start from the bottom and slowly work your way up or across, pushing the tiles down firmly. It is important to apply grout between the tiles within 8 hours of laying them on the sticky mat.
Bondera is especially handy for contractors looking to save time and money for both themselves and their clients. Tiling projects that once took multiple jobsite visits and many days can now be accomplished in substantially less time. While it is recommended for smaller projects, such as kitchen backsplashes or bathroom walls, its versatility allows it to be expanded into other uses. The tile mat set repels water, is resistant to mold and can resist substantial cracks, creating a structurally sound foundation for the tiles. As an added bonus, it is environmentally-friendly as well, making this a truly unique product.
