Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc., the country’s largest ceramic tile manufacturer for more than 50 years, continues to help improve the quality of life of Filipino families with top-of-the-line products. Its latest line, the Mariwasa tile adhesive, which is set for official launch in March 2020, draws upon the skills, discipline and creativity of the Filipino artisan.
The Mariwasa tile adhesive is a ready-made mixture of hydraulic binding agents, aggregates and organic additives formulated to perform above quality tests and standards. The 25-kg. cementitious adhesive promises a strong bond for ceramic tiles when mixed with water. It has a tensile adhesion strength of more than or equal to 0.5 megapascal and an open time of 20 minutes. It complies with the Department of Trade and Industry Philippine National Standard (DTI-PNS) ISO Standard 13007-1.
“This new set of adhesives is a result of our efforts to strengthen our commitment of delivering uncompromising product quality while heeding to the growing demand of Filipinos for reliable products for use with tiles,” Mariwasa president Jakkrit Suwansilp shares.
Mariwasa products stood out in terms of slip resistance, adhesion strength and compatibility with other materials such as porcelain tiles and hollow blocks in recent qualitative tests conducted against other existing brands in the market, further cementing the company’s position as a leader supplier of ceramic tiles that meet world-class beauty and durability.
Mariwasa tile adhesive will soon be available in leading depots nationwide. A pioneer in the industry, Mariwasa was among the first companies in Asia to produce vitrified floor tiles and the first Philippine tile manufacturer to use slabless kilns. It has been offering homes and establishments a wide array of world-class ceramic tiles for more than 50 years now.
