Tile Applications are "Grout-Ready" in just 4 Hours with Bostik's BAM™

Oct 22, 2019 - Wauwatosa, WI

 

Introducing BAM™, Bostik's latest high-performance, fiber-reinforced tile mortar. Formulated with RapidCure™ Technology, BAM™ offers maximum performance for installations of large and heavy tile, glass tile, mosaics, quarry, porcelain, ceramic, most natural stone tiles, and even gauged porcelain tile / panels.

 

 

Most notably, its RapidCure™ Technology allows for a consistent cure resulting in tile being ready for grouting in just 4 hours. Additionally, BAM™ delivers exceptional bond strength that exceeds ANSI 118.15 requirements.

 

 

Ideal for use over various sheet membranes, BAM™ can also be used over properly prepared concrete; cement backer boards; masonry; concrete block; mortar beds; cement terrazzo; structurally sound exterior grade plywood (interior / dry use only); existing, well-bonded vinyl composite tile (VCT); existing tiles; cutback adhesive residue (dry only) and various anti-fracture and waterproofing membranes.

 

 

According to Adam Abell, Bostik's Market Manager, Tile & Stone Installation Systems, "As our industry advances, the 'need for speed' becomes more and more of a reality. BAM™ not only cures rapidly and may be installed on top of a wide variety of substates. Installations with BAM™ make it possible for tile contractors to confidently leave the jobsite on or even before scheduled completion times... and get right over to their next project. Floors can be 'traffic-ready' in record time."
