Laying of glass mosaic under water
Glass mosaic is a high-quality and very attractive installation material, which is also often used in private swimming pools. For the full appreciation of its beauty a number of points must be taken into account during their installation and the correct adhesive and grout must be selected. The smooth and dense surface of the glass mosaic backing does not provide conventional tile adhesives sufficient adhesion. Therefore, reactive resin mortars must be used for bonding in areas with high moisture exposure, especially underwater. Glass mosaic must be laid with a maximal contact surface with the substrate (full-saturation bedding) so as to avoid cloud formation and colour differences on the surface.
